Frequently Asked Questions

There are multiple authors on my publication, does each author need to pay the publication fee?

No. Only one author needs to pay the publication fee. One publication is associated with one publication fee, regardless of the number of authors.

There are multiple authors on my publication, do all of us need to register before the January 24 deadline?

No. Only one author needs to register by the Jan 24 deadline and pay the publication fee. Any author can be the one that registers by the Jan 24 deadline and pays the publication fee.

I am an HRI 2022 pioneers or student design competition attendee. Do I need to pay a publication fee?

No. You do not need to pay a publication fee. You will still have to pay for conference registration if you plan on attending the conference.

Since each publication fee comes with 1 free registration, can I “gift” a free registration to someone else?

Yes. If you register and pay for multiple publication fees within the same registration, you will receive (n-1) free registrations that you can gift to others. For example, if you register and pay 3 publication fees, one free registration will be applied to you, and you can gift 2 free registrations to others. After you go through the registration process, you will receive a follow up email from the registration chairs containing information about your additional free registrations that you can gift to others.

I have multiple publications. Do I pay a fee for each publication?

Yes. If you have multiple publications, you will pay the fee corresponding to each type of paper. For example, if you have 1 full paper and 1 LBR, then you will pay $250 for the full paper and $125 for the LBR. If you have 2 full papers, you will pay $250 for the first full paper and $250 for the second full paper.

I am a SIGCHI member, am I eligible for a registration discount?

Yes. SIGCHI members are eligible for the same conference registration rates as IEEE and ACM members. Please contact for instructions on how to register with the reduced rates associated with your SIGCHI membership.
