Review Criteria
Submissions will undergo a thorough reviewing and refereeing process in order to decide on acceptance, according to the following criteria:
  1. Contribution and Benefit. A paper must make a clear contribution to an identified area of HCI. It should be evident how general the contribution is, and how the audience to which the paper is addressed will benefit. Papers making one clear, significant contribution are more likely to be accepted than papers making several lesser contributions.
  2. Validity. To benefit from its contribution, a paper's readers must be able to make use of its results with confidence. Thus, the paper must provide evidence of the validity of its results. Methods for establishing validity vary depending on the nature of the contribution. They may involve empirical work in the laboratory or the field, the description of rationales for design decisions and approaches, applications of analytical techniques, or proof of concept system implementations.
  3. Originality. The paper must cite previously published work. It should show both how it builds on previous contributions, and how, where and why it goes beyond what is currently known.
  4. Clarity. The paper must be clearly and concisely written, with appropriate use of tables and figures.

Review Process
The review process will be carried out by a team of experienced reviewers in order to decide on acceptance. Paper submissions will be reviewed by at least 3 HCI researchers and practitioners who have been screened for appropriate experience.

These reviews will be managed by the program co-chairs who will write a recommendation for acceptance or rejection based on the reviews received. In cases where a paper has received widely divergent reviews, it will be read by an expert meta-reviewer and discussed by program co-chairs before the final decision is made.
