So, what is alt.chi?

HCI people: I have an opportunity to think about going to alt.chi next year. From what I can gather, it looks interesting, but also will be expensive to travel to and to attend. So, has anyone been in the past, or actually presented alt.chi papers?

Basically, do I spend the Xmas hols thinking about this? It looks like alt.chi papers are scheduled into the main paper tracks - I think? Also it looks as if they are archived in ACM as extended abstracts. But beyond that, it seems murky to me. I know there are conference organizers I can contact, but I'd like to get attendees' (and maybe presenters') perspectives as well. For instance, do people present in alternate formats? - Or are these regular paper panels? Many thanks!

Are alt.chi papers are presented in the main paper tracks at the main CHI conference (I should clarify)?

They're presented like papers but are on their own sessions.

Thanks tjenks, that makes sense.
