During my academic career, I've spent 10,000+ hours editing LaTeX.

Want to know a secret?

I use these 5 easy-to-follow LaTeX snippets every time I submit a CHI paper, and this thread will save you the time of searching for how to do them.

You'll want to bookmark this. ๐Ÿงต๐Ÿ‘‡
1. Use the right documentclass options before submitting your paper to CHI

How it works:

- Comment out this line of code with % \documentclass[sigconf,authordraft]{acmart}
- Then add \documentclass[manuscript,screen,review, anonymous]{acmart}

This is the right review format. Screenshot of the replacement of the LaTeX code from the ACM
2. Format nicer-looking research questions

How it works:

Load in LaTeX doc header:
\usepackage{enumerate}
\usepackage[shortlabels]{enumitem}

Type in LaTeX doc body:
\begin{enumerate}[label= \textbf{RQ\arabic*:}]
\item x
\end{enumerate} The image shows the described code in the Overleaf editor an

For a decade+, grammar-of-graphics approaches (ggplot, Tableau, #d3js, Vega/Altair) have been a leading way to make visualizations. Beyond chart templates & low-level programming, are there compelling alternatives? Or does the future lie in abstractions on top of these grammars?
There's exciting research work on new/extended grammars, including:
- probability expressions ๐Ÿ“Š (mjskay.com/papers/chi2020โ€ฆ)
- responsive charts ๐Ÿ“ฒ ()
- animation ๐Ÿ•บ (idl.cs.washington.edu/papers/gemini2, gganimate, and new @vega_vis work coming to VIS'22 from @mitvis)
.@_mcnutt_ has written a valuable survey of JSON-style grammars (arxiv.org/pdf/2207.07998โ€ฆ), concluding there is "No Grammar to Rule Them All". Should we expect a proliferating multiverse of visualization grammar variants? Where might we look beyond (or building on) such grammars?

Every successful CHI author follows these 13 rules of writing.

Most people do not know them.

Here they are for free to help you become a better research writer.

๐Ÿงตโฌ‡๏ธ
1. Your credibility comes from using specific numbers and explaining things with specific language.

p = 0.003 not p < .05

Add additional materials/appendix with exact numbers or OSF

NOT: The study had various effect.
INSTEAD: Y increased X under Z conditions.

Be specific.
2. All killer, no filler.

Cut out the fat in your writing, delete these filler words:

Basically
Rather
Just
As a matter of fact
At all times

Write like lettuce, not like whip cream.

Sure, IMRaD is a scientist's ballgame, but have you heard of IRMReDiLiFuConcR?

That's how we roll at #chi2023.

Here's what's in that tongue-twisting paper structure:
๐Ÿงตโ†“
Introduction:

โ†’ What is known?
โ†’ What is unknown?
โ†’ How and why should we fill the gap?
โ†’ Why should people care?
