9:20 AM - 10:20 AM Opening Keynote
Silvia Lindtner: The Entrepreneurial Factory: Labor, Race, and Colonial Durabilities in Technology Innovation

Brief Intro: Drawing from over ten years of ethnographic research, Dr. Lindtner will discuss the role the promise of technological innovation plays in contemporary governance and shifting geopolitics in and between China and the US. She will introduce the concept of the entrepreneurial factory to demonstrate how the kind of labor exploitation that is common in the innovation industry has become adopted by and normalized in other industries from manufacturing to agricultural production in the name of progress, the good life, happiness, and future making. Centering the experience of Chinese workers in the manufacturing and innovation industries and the racialized and gendered forms of violence they experience, this talk demonstrates that by attending to bodies, labor, and colonial pasts that are necessary to sustain the entrepreneurial factory, technology can be extricated from the seemingly endless cycle of promise and violence.

Brief Bio: Silvia Lindtner (she/her) is Associate Professor at the University of Michigan in the School of Information and Associate Director of the Center for Ethics, Society, and Computing (ESC). Lindtner draws from more than ten years of multi-sited ethnographic research, exploring China's shifting position in the global political economy of technology production, economic development, and science and technology policy. She is the author of Prototype Nation: China and the Contested Promise of Innovation (Princeton University Press, 2020). The book reveals how a growing distrust in Western models of progress and development, including Silicon Valley and the tech industry after the financial crisis of 2007–8, shaped the vision of China as a “new frontier” of innovation. Lindtner’s work contributes to the fields of STS (science and technology studies), cultural and feminist anthropology, China studies, HCI (human computer interaction), global communication studies, science and technology policy, and design. Her research has been awarded support from the US National Science Foundation, IMLS, Intel Labs, Google Anita Borg, and the Chinese National Natural Science Foundation.

Huaming Qu: VIS+AI: A Visual Analytics Approach for Human-AI Collaboration

Brief Intro: We live in the era of big data and AI. Data is everywhere and decision-makings become more and more data-driven. With tremendous amounts of data, massive computational power, and advances in machine learning algorithms especially deep learning, AI has become very powerful and made decisions for us every day. However, issues with model transparency and interpretability limit the adoption of AI in domains like healthcare, security, and finance. Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) tries to make AI systems and their actions more understandable and transparent to humans. Visual analytics has been playing an important role in XAI. In this talk, I will introduce how visual analytics can help with different types of explainability (e.g., local vs. global explanation, white-box vs. black -box explanation) and the visual analytics techniques developed for specific AI techniques like Random Forest, CNN, RNN, LSTM, GNN, and Automated Machine Learning (AML). Case studies with human-powered AI in different application domains like supply chain management, E-learning, and health care will be presented. I will conclude the talk by discussing some emerging research topics for human-AI collaboration.

Brief Bio: Prof. Huamin Qu is a chair professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and is also the director of the interdisciplinary programs office (IPO) of HKUST. He obtained his PhD in Computer Science from the Stony Brook University. He is the director of the VisLab at HKUST and serves as the coordinator of the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) group. His main research interests are in visualization and human-computer interaction, with focuses on urban informatics, social network analysis, E-learning, text visualization, and explainable artificial intelligence (XAI). He has co-authored about 200 refereed papers and more than 80 papers are published in the IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG) and ACM CHI. His research has been recognized by many awards including 14 best paper/honorable mention awards, AI 2000 Most Influential Scholar Award, IBM Faculty Award, and Distinguished Collaborator Award from Huawei Noah's Ark Lab. In 2020, Huamin was inducted into the IEEE VIS Visualization Academy which highlights the significant accomplishments of leaders in the data visualization field.

A new idea presented in a compact format is more likely to be accepted than the same idea in a long format. Long papers need to include very strong contributions to warrant acceptance. Shorter, more focused papers are also highly encouraged. We highly encourage including videos in submissions for a more vivid illustration. All materials, such as papers, videos, and supplementary files, must be submitted electronically via the Easychair.


ChineseCHI 2021 accepts paper submissions in English.

Review Process

Submissions will be reviewed in a double-blind process, and authors must ensure that their names and affiliations do not appear on the submitted papers. The author and affiliation sections of the ACM Master Article Templates must be left blank. In case of acceptance, authors will be asked to provide a camera-ready copy that includes this information, along with any recommended improvements as suggested by the reviewers.


Confidentiality of submissions will be maintained during the review process. All rejected submissions will be kept confidential in perpetuity. All submitted materials for accepted submissions will be kept confidential until the start of the conference.

File Size

Please note that the maximum size of a submission (including all materials) is 100Mb. If there is a requirement that exceeds this limit, please contact the conference chairs to make alternative arrangements.


One author of each accepted paper must register for the conference before the early registration deadline and present the work.

Call for Late Breaking Work


We invite you to submit preliminary work and work-in-progress relevant to the area of Chinese HCI to our Late Breaking Work (LBW) session. These may include ground-breaking work that has not been fully implemented or empirically validated, early student research and other work that are better delivered in an interactive format. We highly encourage including videos in submissions for a more vivid illustration. LBW presenters will present their work during the LBW Session assigned by the conference committee. All accepted LBW will be included in the conference proceedings and be published through the ACM Digital Library and Ei Compendex.

Important Dates

  • Submission Due: August 10 23:59 (extend to August 20 23:59), 2021 AoE
  • Paper Notification: September 20, 2021 AoE

Submission Guidelines


Late Breaking Work must be anonymized and in PDF file format. We eliminate the traditional extended abstract format (landscape) and use the same template as full papers. Submissions must be up to 8 pages long in the single-column format (not including references). All materials, such as LBW, videos, and supplementary files, must be submitted electronically via the Easychair. The maximum size of a submission (including all materials) is 100Mb.
