The goal of CHI PLAY is to highlight and foster discussion of current high quality (full paper acceptance rate is typically below 30%) research in games and HCI as foundation for the future of digital play. To this end, the conference features streams that blend academic research and games with research papers, interactive play demos, and industry insights.

CHI PLAY grew out of the increasing work around games and play emerging from the ACM annual conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI) as well as smaller conferences such as Fun and Games and Gamification. CHI PLAY is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group for Computer-Human Interaction (SIGCHI).
