This is an older interview when I had the pleasure of interviewing Professor Carl Gutwin from the University of Saskatchewan in 2016 for the How to write CHI papers course (Carl has been papers chair of CHI in the past and has an incredible amount of experience in writing for SIGCHI conferences). Having worked with Carl at the University of Saskatchewan before, I knew that he was going to have some excellent advice for new CHI writers. In fact, it was Carl who taught me the first CHI writing course when I was a postdoc.
