Workshop issues
1 - Hard for practitioners to participate in research (e.g., submit)
2 - The field is huge; lots to study.
2 - We do not present research papers FOR practitioners.
- Community has grown despite challenges (e.g., UPA)
- Reviewing process
- Logistic challenges (for CHI 2011)
- Talk among ourselves
