at CUI 2023

Posters are short papers that present early-stage research and late-breaking work in the field of Conversational User Interfaces. This track is suitable for shorter, original contributions that do not meet the length requirements or depth required for the Papers track. Submissions can include preliminary results, short prequels to or follow-ups of larger studies, early student research, and other research that is better suited to an interactive discussion format.

For the submission and review process, you should write an extended abstract that summarises the content you wish to present in your poster. If accepted, we will invite you to present your work at CUI 2023, with your extended abstract published in the conference proceedings.

The process

All posters will proceed through the following process. Please contact the Posters & Demos chairs if you have any questions.

1. Prepare your extended abstract

Submissions of extended abstract must be in English, in PDF format, anonymised using the CHI anonymization policy, and approximately 3,000 words (including figures, tables, proofs, appendixes, and any other content excluding references and acknowledgments).

You must use the ACM LaTeX or Word templates to prepare your submission. LaTeX users may start their work by using the official ACM template available on Overleaf, which we strongly encourage. LaTeX users should have the following document class: \documentclass[sigconf, screen, review, anonymous]{acmart} for submission.

Word users should use the double-column “Interim Template” during submission and review and should be prepared to submit to TAPS approximately one week earlier than the stated camera-ready deadline. Word users may be required to reimplement their paper, if accepted, into the correct document format for the publishing process.

By submitting your article to an ACM Publication, you are hereby acknowledging that you and your co-authors are subject to all ACM Publications Policies, including ACM’s new Publications Policy on Research Involving Human Participants and Subjects. Alleged violations of this policy or any ACM Publications Policy will be investigated by ACM and may result in a full retraction of your paper, in addition to other potential penalties, as per ACM Publications Policy.

ACM’s CCS concepts and keywords are not required for submission and peer review but are required if your paper is accepted and published by the ACM.

2. Submit your extended abstract

You should submit your extended abstract to the conference submission system. You must include your title, abstract, author details, and extended abstract as a PDF. Your extended abstract must be anonymised, or it may be desk rejected.

We ask you to make sure that your submission is accessible for all users. To accomplish this, please follow the SIGCHI Guide to an Accessible Submission.

3. Await reviews

Each submission will be peer reviewed by three expert reviewers under a refereed process under a double-anonymous process (i.e., authors will not be revealed to reviewers, and all reviewers will be hidden from each other and authors). Extended abstracts for which there is a very high agreement among reviewers regarding recommendation for inclusion in the proceedings will receive early acceptance decisions and will be conditionally accepted, pending the integration of any changes requested through the review process.

4. Prepare your extended abstract for publication

If your extended abstract is accepted, you should de-anonymise it. You must include CCS concepts and keywords for publication.

At least one author of each accepted poster must register for the conference, otherwise we cannot guarantee publication of your paper. Accepted poster extended abstracts will be archived in the ACM Digital Library.

You will receive an email from ACM to assign the rights for your paper, following which you will receive an email from “The ACM Publishing System” (TAPS), which will handle the generation of the final version of your paper. Accepted extended abstracts will be produced from LaTeX or Word source files into a single column HTML document and a two-column PDF for publication. We recommend all authors read ACM’s guidance for TAPS Best Practice.

Please ensure that you and your co-authors obtain an ORCID ID, so you can complete the publishing process for your accepted paper. ACM has been involved in ORCID from the start and we have recently made a commitment to collect ORCID IDs from all of our published authors. The collection process has started and will roll out as a requirement throughout 2022. We are committed to improve author discoverability, ensure proper attribution and contribute to ongoing community efforts around name normalization; your ORCID ID will help in these efforts.

All ACM publications follow the Green Open Access route by default, although authors have the opportunity to independently pay a fee for Gold Open Access. The total fee payable depends on the author(s) ACM membership status.

You should, at this stage, produce the final design for your poster.

5. Present your work

You will be invited to present your poster at CUI 2023. The specific details of this presentation will be provided closer to the conference.

Your extended abstract will be published in the CUI Proceedings in the ACM Digital Library. SIGCHI participates in the ACM Open Table of Contents (OpenTOC) service, which means extended abstracts will be freely available from this website for the first year after publication.
