Author Guidelines

Different papers have different submission formats. Please, check the format of your paper:

  • Research papers: Research papers must not exceed 10 pages (excluding references); papers with fewer pages are welcome. Papers must be blinded for review, and use the CHI Proceedings Format from 2020, available in LaTeX, Word, or Overleaf. 

Submissions will be reviewed on the basis of originality, research quality, potential impact and value to the development of future learning at scale. In order to increase high quality papers and independent merit, the evaluation process will be double blind. The papers submitted for review MUST NOT contain the authors’ names, affiliations, or any information that may disclose the authors’ identity (this information is to be restored in the camera-ready version upon acceptance). Please replace author names and affiliations with Xs on submitted papers. In particular, in the version submitted for review please avoid explicit auto-references, such as “in [1] we show” — consider instead “in [1] it is shown”. You should cite your own relevant previous work, so that a reviewer can access it and see the new contributions. The text should not explicitly state that the cited work belongs to the authors.

  • Work in progress papers: WiP submissions must not exceed 4 pages (including references) and use the CHI Proceedings Format, available in LaTeX, Word, or Overleaf. WiP submissions are not anonymous and should therefore include all author names, affiliations and contact information. If accepted, you should prepare a poster to present at the conference venue. Accepted WiP submissions are semi-archival (see details below). 
  • Demonstrations: Demonstration submissions must not exceed 2 pages (including references) and use the CHI Proceedings Format, available in LaTeX, Word, or Overleaf. 
  • Workshop: Workshop submissions must not exceed 4 pages (including references) and use the CHI Proceedings Format, available in LaTeX, Word, or Overleaf. 

All submissions will be handled through EasyChair.

Statement on Open Science

Authors are encouraged to conduct their scientific inquiry using emerging best practices in open science. Authors are encouraged to preregister their study design, hypotheses, and analysis plans, and publish these using platforms such as or Whenever possible, feasible, and ethical, authors are encouraged to make their data, materials, and scripts openly available for inspection, replication, and follow-up analysis. The best way to share these materials is to use an established platform like

Archival Proceedings

Research and synthesis papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by the ACM Press in the ACM Digital Library. Work-in-Progress and Demonstration papers will appear in a separate part of the conference proceedings. The status of Work-in-Progress paper will be akin to what Computer-Human Interaction (CHI) Conference describes as “semi-archival”, meaning the results reported in the Work-in-Progress paper must be original, but copyright is retained by the authors and the material can be used as the basis for future publications in ACM venues as long as there are significant revisions from the original. Proceedings and conference statistics from prior years are available online.

OpenAccess to Proceedings

The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of your conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work. (For those rare conferences whose proceedings are published in the ACM Digital Library after the conference is over, the official publication date remains the first day of the conference).
