The Video Previews are a new feature for the CHI Conference series, replacing the long-running CHI Madness daily plenary session to save time in the over-crowded schedule. But really, the Video Previews is more than just a reason to sleep in a little longer: the goal is to make it easier to understand what the presentations are about, before, during, and after the conference.
The previews were intended to serve multiple purposes:
- To provide a preview of what will be presented at the conference, so that attendees could plan their schedule
- To be played on-site on large displays throughout the conference venue to give people an idea of what’s coming up next
- To be distributed to attendees as part of the electronic proceedings on the USB stick, and on the iPhone and Android apps.
Gonzalo Ramos and I are the video previews chairs for CHI 2013. Video previews are a new way of promoting and advertising CHI publications before, during, and after the conference.; they will replace the traditional live CHI Madness presentations.
We would like to put together a small set of short videos (approx 30 seconds long) that illustrate best practices in CHI madness presentations. These videos will be made available to CHI 2013 authors as examples best practices. If you have a video or a timed slide deck that you would be willing to contribute, please let me know. We will select a few videos, describe key aspects that we think make them appropriate for this purpose, and publish them along other instructions for the authors.
Thanks for your help!
