Industry Papers Track

Industry papers provide the opportunity to describe industry initiatives or new developments that could benefit from discussion with members of the HCI community. They may include experiences of reflective practitioners, preliminary work, work in progress and first drafts of novel concepts and approaches. Industry papers will follow the same review process as the short papers, except reviewers will be invited from clleagues having an industry background.
