Thank you for your interest in nominating an individual for a SIGCHI award. You can find an explanation of the different awards on the SIGCHI website. To learn about nominations, the review process, and the committee members, read more about the nomination process. The deadline for all nominations is 15 December 2022.

The SIGCHI awards identify and honor leaders and shapers of the field of human-computer interaction within SIGCHI. We present awards in six categories:  

  • SIGCHI Lifetime Research Award
  • SIGCHI Lifetime Practice Award
  • SIGCHI Lifetime Service Award
  • SIGCHI Social Impact Award
  • SIGCHI Outstanding Dissertation Award
  • Election to the SIGCHI Academy


For all awards EXCEPT Outstanding Dissertation, the following information is required:

  • name and contact information of the nominator; 
  • a brief summary (1,000 words max.) of how the nominee meets the criteria for the award;
  • names and contact information of two people who are knowledgeable about the qualifications of the nominee, and agree that the nominee deserves the award. These endorsers do not write a separate endorsement letter. The nominator confirms with the endorsers that they endorse the nominee.


If you are submitting a nomination for Outstanding Dissertation Award, please read these instructions very carefully, as this requires additional information. Eligible dissertations must have been successfully completed between September 1, 2021 and August 31, 2022
