Shaping the Hybrid Conference Experience

With the move towards hybrid conferences, we face new challenges in engaging both on-site and remote participants. The advantage of the hybrid format is that it allows us to include participants who may be unable to travel to the conference site or would prefer to attend remotely. But how do we support online engagement and...

From Rapid Communications to Perspectives on Play: Introducing the PoP Track

PoP replaces the Rapid Communications (RC) track. We recognized a need to clearly distinguish this track from similar ones, especially Work in Progress (WiP). We also wished to inspire contributions from voices within and outside of the CHI PLAY community—from researchers working in underrepresented fields who can share new viewpoints, to professionals with practical insights grounded in industry practice. Finally, we aimed to signpost a space for alternative types of submissions, from the bite-sized to formats that differ from what you might normally expect in a typical conference paper.

Important Changes to CHI PLAY 2022 Paper Decisions

CHI PLAY 2022 will be the second year after a transition to the PACM publishing model. Based on last year’s experience with CHI PLAY 2021 review process, we have made some changes to how the final decisions will be made on papers to the Technical Program. The goal of these changes is to facilitate a more efficient review process and reduce the workload for both authors and Associate Chairs/reviewers.


  • There will be 3 outcomes for papers: “Accept with Minor Revisions”, “Revise and Resubmit” and “Reject”.
  • We will aim to only have a small number of papers to be classified as “Revise and Resubmit,” meaning most papers will be recommended as either “Accept with Minor Revisions” or “Reject” in the first round. We will allow a bigger number of papers than we can accept to the conference to go into R&R. Therefore, there will be another round of final selections at the end of the second cycle.
