This is an opportunity for researchers to present and discuss their research even before they have substantial research results to show. Get to know who else does research that can be interesting to you meet and learn from other practitioners and researchers, share your ideas and make new connections!

What are work-in-progress papers?

Work-in-progress papers should present research in progress in contrast to full papers, that present research results. The work in-progress presented should contribute to the NordiCHI community and to HCI or related areas. We would like the work-in-progress papers to be a basis for fostering discussions about current and future research. Suitable work-in-progress contributions can present on-going work related to any of the conference themes, empirical or theoretical. Examples of work in progress could be the design of a novel interaction method, empirical material from interesting contexts, theoretical contributions from relevant research fields or research ideas that can carry a research project.

What do you submit?

Submit a minimum of 3 pages and a maximum of 5 pages including references. This must include three broad areas: A literature review, a clear and succinct description of the work and a description of future work. Submissions should be as close to camera ready as possible, including names and affiliations. Only very minor changes will be allowed after acceptance. At least one author of each accepted work-in-progress will be required to attend the conference and present it. Failure to do so will mean the paper will be removed from the proceedings and the ACM Digital Library. Quick facts of Work-in-progress submissions
