A Note About Early Registration and the CHI 2021 Schedule

  • March 14, 2021

Dear CHI Community, 


The **draft** schedule for CHI 2021 is now available. Please note that it is still under construction and subject to change.  (e.g. workshops/symposia are not yet done).



CAUTION: "Convert to my local time" feature converts times based on time zones as of today, not as of the conference dates. So, please use "conference time zone (UTC +09:00)" and convert times by yourself.


We are aware that many of you who are planning to attend part of the conference would like to check the CHI’21 schedule before registering early bird, which ends on April 6th. 


Unfortunately, a final schedule will not be ready by then. There are many moving parts to scheduling a conference like CHI, which this year gets even more complicated as we are running a 24-hour schedule, in which much content is distributed across more than one time zone (Please see more information about this in our previous blog post: https://chi2021.acm.org/information/4934.html). While we think this best serves CHI attendees from around the world by preserving equity of access independently of where a person is situated geographically, it also makes it more challenging to craft the conference schedule. So we deeply appreciate your patience and understanding. We, the TPC in collaboration with the venue chairs, are working hard to get the schedule ready. We have just shared a preliminary version of it,, and will have the finalized schedule ready as soon as possible.


In the meantime, if you were planning to register early bird, we encourage you to do so. If you are going to register for one day, our recommendation is that you pick a day arbitrarily. Once you have the final schedule, you will be able to either: 

  • Modify that day following the “Modify Registration” link in the confirmation email you will receive upon registration; 
  • Or email the registration team at chiregistration@executivevents.com letting them know the change you need to make to your registration. 


We will continue to work hard to resolve further details about the schedule as soon as possible. We are looking forward to this unique online CHI’21 and hope it will be an enjoyable experience for you all.
