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 (3 pages in total) by 29 January 2013, using the conference submission system. Submissions for panels are NOT anonymous, but will be reviewed by at least 3 leaders in the specified area of HCI. The proposal should include: the proposer’s name and affiliation and the names, affiliations of proposed panel members; an explanation of the topic and its relevance to the INTERACT audience; and a brief description of the relevant background and perspective that each panel member brings to the topic.

Abstracts should be formatted according to the LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) format (see panel on right-hand side to download the formatting instructions). The description of accepted panels will be published in the INTERACT 2013 Adjunct Proceedings.
