alt.HCI at British HCI 2011 (Jul 2011, UK)

Call for Papers: alt.HCI at British HCI 2011
Submission deadline: 28 Feb 2011

alt.hci is a new category this year at British HCI 2011 We invite papers with topics and/or approaches that are too controversial, exploratory, and/or unconventional to get into the mainstream HCI conferences. Submitted work must stand scrutiny and must offer a valuable perspective to the HCI community, but it does not need to conform to the strictures for long and short papers (except in formatting).  In essence, any compelling paper which will provoke new ideas or stir up discussions within the community is appropriate.

The deadline for submissions is 28th Feb 2011. The assessment process is by jury. This year the jury is Shaowen Bardzell of Indiana University, Tuck Wah Leong of Newcastle University, and Ann Light of Sheffield Hallam University. Authors will be notified on 1st April 2011.

Accepted alt.hci papers will be published archivally in the ACM Digital Library. For this reason, we require a short paper of high quality (max 6 pages), following the BCS paper format (  The actual presentation at the conference may be in the form of short talk, poster or performance, depending on the nature of the submission.
