Submission format

Case-study articles are 8 to 12 pages long.

Submission of video material to accompany case-study articles is encouraged in all cases.

NordiCHI anonymisation policy is the same as for the CHI conference and it states: authors are expected to remove author and institutional identities from the title and header areas of the paper, as noted in the submission instructions (Note: changing the text colour of the author information is not sufficient). Also, please make sure that information that may identify you does not appear in the document's meta-data (e.g., the “Authors” field in your word processor's “Save As” dialogue box). Further suppression of identity in the body of the paper is left to the authors' discretion. We do expect that authors leave citations to their previous work un-anonymised so that reviewers can ensure that all previous research has been taken into account by the authors. However, authors are encouraged to cite their own work in the third person, for example, avoiding “As described in our previous work [10],…” and using instead “As described by [10],…”

Selection Process

Case-study articles are peer-reviewed in a double-blind review process.

Technical setup at the conference

Case-study articles will be presented during the conference. Depending on the number of submissions, presentations will-be clustered in dedicated case-study sessions or highlighted as Case-Study Presentations. A video projector and sound system will be available.


Case-study articles will appear in the Proceedings of NordiCHI 2020, which will be published in the ACM Digital Library. Video materials will be published as source material in the ACM Digital Library.

Authors of accepted case-study articles must present at the NordiCHI 2020 Conference, and register for the NordiCHI 2020 conference.


We hope you will join us in Tallinn in October 2020!
