Program committees

In the field of Human-Computer Interaction, conferences are considered the primary method of publication. The ACM CHI and UIST conferences are particularly selective (selection rate ranges from 15-25%) and are considered journal level work by the ACM/SIGCHI. Papers have at least five independent reviews, including two senior associate chairs, with a face-to-face program committee and a rebuttal process.

ACM CHI is the flag ship conference of our domain with more than 2300 submissions in 2016. The overall submission process is chaired by 2 to 3 papers co-chairs. Submissions are then distributed across ~10 subcommittees that handle between 100 and 400 papers each. A subcommittee is usually chaired by 2 subcommittee co-chairs.
