UPDATE 7.8.2014
We will have an excellent selection of 89 papers in NordiCHI’14. The acceptance rate this year was 25%, so congratulations for all authors who got their paper accepted!
Please remember to have at least one author registered to at least one day of the conference by the early bird registration deadline of 18.9.2014, otherwise we have to withdraw your paper from the conference proceedings and program.
NordiCHI’14 is a non-commercial conference and we strive to keep the registration fees low. This is why we cannot provide financial help for the presenters coming to the conference. However, if you are a student and get accepted either to the Doctoral Consortium, finals of the Student Design Competition, or as a Student Volunteer, you will get the conference registration for free.

UPDATE 25.4.2014
The paper submission is closed, we thank all the authors for submitting to NordiCHI! We got a record number of submissions, 368 (vs. 341 in the previous conference). The acceptance rate for NordiCHI has been typically just below 30%, which we aim to have this year as well. The multi-phase review process starts now and the notifications will be sent to the authors by the end of June.

UPDATE 1.7.2014
The paper review period is over and the notifications are out. The acceptance rate was 25% this year, so we will have 89 high-quality papers presented at NordiCHI’14. Congratulations for all authors of the successful papers!

NordiCHI’14 Papers
NordiCHI 2014 invites original papers that move the field of human-computer interaction forward, be it through the advance of theory, methodology, or practice. We invite submissions of long and short papers of the highest international standard. NordiCHI aims to be a multidisciplinary forum for exchange of the latest results, coming from and combining the social, the technical, and the aesthetic. We especially welcome submissions that break the boundaries of traditional HCI studies, addressing the conference theme: studying positive user experiences (such as fun), fast-paced agile development, or theoretical foundations to the topics of the conference.

Long papers must present original work that significantly contributes to research and practice of Human-Computer Interaction in its broadest sense. They should demonstrate validity, novelty over the literature, benefit to the field, or otherwise make a contribution that matters. Short papers contribute brief and focused contributions.

Long papers are up to 10 pages; short papers up to 4 pages. Papers should be anonymised* and formatted according to the ACM SIGCHI Papers Format. Submissions are made electronically through the conference paper submission and reviewing system PCS (Precision Conference System), which will be opened one month before the paper submission deadline. Please note that the deadline is firm and will not be extended. The papers are peer reviewed in a double-blind review process.

Authors must present accepted papers at the NordiCHI 2014 Conference, and register for the conference for at least one day. Accepted manuscripts appear in the Proceedings of NordiCHI 2014, which will be distributed to the conference attendees in digital format and published in the ACM Digital Library.

* NordiCHI anonymization policy is the same as for CHI conference:
Authors are expected to remove author and institutional identities from the title and header areas of the paper, as noted in the submission instructions (Note: changing the text color of the author information is not sufficient). Also, please make sure that information which may identify you does not appear in the document’s meta-data (e.g., the ‘Authors’ field in your word processor’s ‘Save As’ dialog box). Further suppression of identity in the body of the paper is left to the authors’ discretion. We do expect that authors leave citations to their previous work unanonymized, so that reviewers can ensure that all previous research has been taken into account by the authors. However, authors are encouraged to cite their own work in the third person, e.g., avoid “As described in our previous work [10], … ” and use instead “As described by [10], …”
