Update on CHI 2020 in relation to Covid-19 (Coronavirus)

All of the volunteers involved with organizing CHI2020 are aware of the concerns around travel to the conference and the implications of travel disruption. A task force of representatives from the CHI2020 leadership, our logistics team at Executive Events, the SIGCHI Executive Committee, the CHI Steering Committee and the ACM have formed to meet regularly so we can respond to a rapidly evolving situation. We will be sending out more updates regularly.

We know that people are asking whether the conference will be held as planned, and what the consequences are if they are not able to travel to the conference. Right now, our expectation is that CHI2020 will happen as planned. We will reassess that expectation regularly, and keep all attendees updated on this website.

The information from March 3rd is still up to date, but we will announce here details on how to handle remote presentations for different submission categories by March 13th latest.
