How to Sponsor CHI PLAY

We invite you to support the CHI PLAY conference through financial sponsorship.

The CHI PLAY Series provides a forum for academics and practitioners to discuss play, games and human-computer interaction (HCI). The conference highlights and fosters discussion of current high quality research in games and HCI as foundations for the future of digital play. To this end, the conference will feature streams that blend academic research with interactive demos, and industry case studies. The conference proceedings are published in the ACM Digital Library one of the most important publishers of computer research in the world.

Supporting the event is an ideal way to demonstrate your organization’s interest in and commitment to the field, and to publicize this support to many leaders and students in the field. Sponsors also improve the quality of the conference, display support for the community and demonstrate their commitment to the area of research activity. Corporate support is very important to the conference, and the conference committee ensures that these contributions are well recognized. We list the benefits and costs below. (If you can think of another benefit that would make this more attractive to your company, do let us know!)

 Sponsoring Opportunities

We have 3 levels of sponsorship: Champion, Benefactor and Donor. In addition, there are a variety of opportunities to sponsor specific elements of the conference (and get further exposure for your company or organization) – contact us for more details.

Packages are negotiable in regards to the items they include and can be adjusted to specific needs.

Long-term sponsoring opportunities are also available for all the packages below. They include the same benefits.
