EA Submission Guidelines

CHI PLAY 2023 uses one single template format for submission to the “Extended Abstract” tracks. Submissions should use the new ACM Primary Article Templates. Detailed instructions on formatting can be found at http://www.acm.org/publications/authors/submissions.

Accepted submissions are published in the CHI PLAY 2023 Extended Abstracts and ACM Digital Library.

Submissions must be made using the Precision Conference System (PCS).

Submissions should be formatted as follows:


  • Submissions to the Connections track involve submission of a Connections proposal form, but no separate submission document. Organizers of accepted Connections will receive instructions on how to submit a publication-ready copy of their Connections proposal for distribution and archival in the ACM Digital Library. 

Work in Progress, Interactivity, Student Game Design Competition, Perspectives on Play, Doctoral Consortium

  • ACM Primary Article Template (references not included), single-column manuscript style. 
  • Authors should submit manuscripts for review in a single-column format, which is available for Word and LaTeX (use the “manuscript” call to create a single-column format, rather than “acmsmall”). If you are using the ACM LaTeX Overleaf template, please select the “ACM Journals – New Primary Template“, not the “ACM Conference Proceedings ‘Master’ Template”

Please see the instructions for the individual tracks for information on specific settings, page or word limits, and whether references are excluded from the page limit. 


Papers: Please use inclusive language throughout your papers. Some commonly-used charged terminology and alternative suggestions can be found at: https://www.acm.org/diversity-inclusion/words-matter. Please avoid using gendered language, ableist language, and racialized terminology. 

You are asked to provide alt-text descriptions for all figures in your submission. Writing good descriptive text is important, so please look at http://www.sigaccess.org/welcome-to-sigaccess/resources/describing-figures/ for guidance and examples. More information for writing accessible papers can be found the SIGCHI website: https://sigchi.org/conferences/author-resources/accessibility-guide/
Videos: For accessibility guidelines for videos please refer to the video guidelines.
