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). All accepted submissions will be distributed in the CHI PLAY Conference Proceedings available in the ACM Digital Library, where they will remain accessible to thousands of researchers and practitioners worldwide.
CHI PLAY is moving to a journal publications. All accepted full papers will be published as part of PACMHCI. See here for further details.
As the organisers of CHI PLAY 2021, we are committed to providing an inclusive, safe, and respectful conference environment for all attendees. As such we closely and carefully monitor the developments of the Covid-19 pandemic and will adjust the format of the conference as necessary to ensure the safety of our community. Independent of the format of the conference we can assure all authors of accepted work that their contributions will appear in the ACM DL and that they will be given the opportunity to present.
