Welcoming Submissions to the Panels & Fireside Chats Venue

At CHI 2018, the theme will be engage. The technical and social programs at CHI will provide several ways for attendees to engage in discussion. One of these is through the curated Panels & Fireside Chats Venue. We are inviting stimulating panel submissions that inspire new ideas, are innovative in approach, and likely to engage the conference attendees.

One change this year is that we are welcoming a range of formats for the presentation of panels. They can take the form of a traditional panel of discussants with a moderator, a fireside chat in which an individual gets interviewed by a moderator, or a roundtable in which the moderator(s) pose the questions to the audience for discussion. Our goal is to facilitate discussion – panels that propose a series of mini presentations are not what we are looking for. We would like you to be creative in proposing a format for your panels and welcome new ideas!

The deadline for submissions to the Panels & Fireside Chats venue is January 15, 2017, but we welcome ideas for high-profile plenary session panels and fireside chats at any time. If you have ideas for a high-profile panel, fireside chat, or roundtable discussion that would be of interest to a broad range of CHI attendees, please contact the venue’s co-chairs (panels@chi2018.acm.org) and/or the conference co-chairs (generalchairs@chi2018.acm.org) with your ideas as soon as possible.
