* Submissions for MobileHCI *
As an AC in the Program Committee, you will be working with paper submissions. Mobile HCI seeks contributions in the form of innovations, insights, or analyses related to human computer interaction and experiences with mobility. The conference series has shaped research, development and practice in mobile devices and services for two decades.
MobileHCI 2019 welcomes contributions related to any aspect of HCI technology, experience, methodology, and theory. Our interpretation of mobility is inclusive and broadly construed. In later calls we will solicit proposals also for workshops, demonstrations, tutorials, and industrial case study papers.
* MobileHCI Program Committee *
As an AC you will be part of the MobileHCI 2019 Program Committee. We aim for a diverse and inclusive Program Committee, representing a variety of backgrounds, and are especially interested in attracting younger researchers in the field. Program committee members will be selected from volunteering individuals, and suggested invitees.
* Expectations for Associate Chairs *
ACs are expected to have some experience with MobileHCI and with reviewing. The requirements for serving as an AC are (1) having a PhD in a relevant domain, (2) having published at least four academic papers of which at least one paper or note was at MobileHCI, and (3) having reviewed at least one paper or note for MobileHCI. These are the *minimal* requirements; most ACs have significantly more reviewing, authoring, and committee experience at MobileHCI and other related SIGCHI conference venues.
For those of you who did not act as an AC before, let us share our expectations with regard to this volunteer service: AC’ing is a significant commitment of time, effort, and energy. AC’ing means taking responsibility as a 1AC (primary associate chair) for the peer review of at least 5 papers and as a 2AC (secondary associate chair) for at least 5 more. Consequently, AC’ing is significantly more work than reviewing.
As an AC, you will be required to find expert reviewers, write high-quality meta reviews and reviews yourself, initiate discussion, read rebuttals, and prepare arguments for publishing submissions. ACs must also be available to travel to the PC meeting in Glasgow in early May 2019. As ACM cannot cover the cost for the travel cost, ACs are responsible for their own travel costs. Meals and a nice joint dinner will be provided during the meeting. In addition to the PC meeting, your peak busy times will be shortly after the paper deadline of 1 February when you will need to vote for paper to handle then find reviewers. MobileHCI 2019 will have rebuttals so reviews and meta-reviews will need to be finalised in April and rebuttals processed in advance of the PC meeting.
Please volunteer by 17th December, 2018, with this form.
