NordiCHI’16 Papers

NordiCHI 2016 invites original papers that move the field of human-computer interaction forward, be it through the advance of theory, methodology, or practice. We invite submissions of long and short papers of the highest international standard. NordiCHI aims to be a multidisciplinary forum for exchange of the latest results, coming from and combining the social, the technical, and the aesthetic. We especially welcome submissions that break the boundaries of traditional HCI studies, addressing the conference theme: Game-changing design.

Long papers must present original work that significantly contributes to research and practice of Human-Computer Interaction in its broadest sense. They should demonstrate validity, novelty over the literature, benefit to the field, or otherwise make a contribution that matters. Short papers contribute brief and focused contributions.

Long papers are up to 10 pages; short papers up to 4 pages, including references. Papers should be anonymised* and formatted according to the ACM SIGCHI 2014 Format. Submissions are made electronically through the conference paper submission and reviewing system PCS ( ), which will be opened one month before the paper submission deadline. Please note that the deadline is firm and will not be extended. The papers are peer reviewed in a double-blind review process.

Authors must present accepted papers at the NordiCHI 2016 Conference, and register for the conference for at least one day. Accepted manuscripts appear in the Proceedings of NordiCHI 2016, which will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
Submission of video material to accompany papers is encouraged. For accepted manuscripts, such video material will be published as source material in the ACM Digital Library.

* NordiCHI anonymization policy is the same as for CHI conference:
Authors are expected to remove author and institutional identities from the title and header areas of the paper, as noted in the submission instructions (Note: changing the text color of the author information is not sufficient). Also, please make sure that information that may identify you does not appear in the document’s meta-data (e.g., the ‘Authors’ field in your word processor’s ‘Save As’ dialog box). Further suppression of identity in the body of the paper is left to the authors’ discretion. We do expect that authors leave citations to their previous work unanonymized, so that reviewers can ensure that all previous research has been taken into account by the authors. However, authors are encouraged to cite their own work in the third person, e.g., avoid “As described in our previous work [10], … ” and use instead “As described by [10], …”
