Panel proposals are solicited. An invitation is extended to participants with an interest in developing a panel session around a stimulating or controversial theme in the general field of HCI.

Topics and/or themes for a panel session may also be proposed by individuals with an interest in chairing a panel on a topic that intrigues them. Preference will be given to topics that raise forward-looking and/or contentious issues, and that promote debate among panel members and involvement of the audience. All suggestions will be assessed for their topicality and ability to generate stimulating debate.

Submit a panel proposal and a panel abstract (2 pages in total) by 30 March 2009, using the conference submission system that will be made available through this official conference website. Submissions for panels are NOT anonymous, but will receive at least 3 reviews from leaders in the specified area of HCI. The proposal should include the proposer's name and affiliation as well as the names and affiliations of possible panel members. Abstracts should be formatted according to the LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) format (see this page for a downloadable template). The description of accepted panels will be published in the conference adjunct proceedings.
