The Podcast is live

After months of working on it and on our own CHI papers in the HCI Games Group, I finally had time to cut and edit together the first episode of the How to Write CHI Papers podcast with many insightful interviews from 14 CHI rockstars Susan Dumais, Andrés Lucero, Erin Solovey, Effie Law, Andy Cockburn, Nick Graham, Meredith Ringel Morris, Kristina Höök, Anirudha Joshi, Annika Waern, Hrvoje Benko, Anind Dey, Albrecht Schmidt, and Derek Reilly. The podcast is currently hosted here and on Spotify, but you can also listen on Google Podcasts or Apple Podcasts. I am looking forward to your feedback.

Thanks to those of you that have taken this course in the past. I am looking forward to preparing more course-related materials in the years to come. For now, all current materials are hosted on this website. As we are headed straight towards the CHI deadline (definitely the abstract submission deadline tomorrow), I wish everyone good luck with their papers and hope you can find this podcast episode helpful when preparing your CHI submissions. Listen to the Podcast. 

Interview with Carl Gutwin

Carl Gutwin

I have had the pleasure of interviewing Professor Carl Gutwin from the University of Saskatchewan for this course (Carl has been papers chair of CHI in the past and has an incredible amount of experience in writing for SIGCHI conferences). Having worked with Carl at the University of Saskatchewan before, I knew that he was going to have some excellent advice for new CHI writers. In fact, it was Carl who taught me the first CHI writing course when I was a postdoc, and he is one of those people that when you are in doubt of whether you are writing right, you should just ask yourself: What would Carl have written? In the following, I have tried to distill the interview down to some of the most important takeaways. I hope you find all of this information useful and will enjoy listening to this interview as much as I enjoyed doing it.
