July 20, 2022: Work in Progress papers submission deadline

Due to technical issues with PCS, the submission deadline is extended to July 21, 2022 (AOE)

Work in Progress contributions provide a unique opportunity for authors to present reports on original yet incomplete work that seeks to advance our current knowledge in games and play through innovative or thought-provoking ideas. We encourage submissions describing late-breaking advances and work-in-progress reports from ongoing research. Submissions are evaluated on the basis of originality, innovation, and contribution to the diversity of the conference program. 

Examples include:

  • Original and innovative technologies, techniques, or prototypes, with or without an accompanying evaluation
  • Qualitative or quantitative studies showing preliminary results 
  • “Sequels” to a prior research contribution 
  • “Prequels” to motivate or stimulate novel conversations or future work 
  • Theoretical or methodological contributions that provoke disciplinary conversations 

Work in Progress papers are archived in the ACM Digital Library in the CHI PLAY 2022 Extended Abstracts.

SUBMISSION

  • Up to 8 pages in ACM Primary Article Template, single-column manuscript style (references excluded)
