Call for Papers

We invite original contributions on all topics related to Human-Computer Interaction, Interaction Design and the design of interactive technologies. Submissions are invited for long papers, short papers, work-in-progress papers, workshops, demonstrations, the Doctoral Consortium and the Student Design Challenge.

All submissions must be written in English and follow formatting guidelines in the paper template. Both long and short papers will undergo a double-blind review by an international panel and evaluated on the basis of their significance, originality, and clarity of writing. This review will be based on the full text of the submitted paper.

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series available from the ACM Digital Library.

  • Long papers report on innovative, original, and completed research, which is relevant, significant, and interesting to the HCI community.
  • Short papers present ideas that are emerging and would benefit from discussion with members of the HCI community. These papers may include experiences of reflective practitioners, and first drafts of novel concepts and approaches.
  • Industry papers Industry papers provide the opportunity to describe industry initiatives or new developments that could benefit from discussion with members of the HCI community.
  • Workshops are half-day and full-day sessions on topics that contribute to community building around a specific HCI topic. Topics may include methods, practices, and other areas of interest and that support active participation beyond presentation.
  • Doctoral consortium is a full-day intensive session for research students. A panel of experienced HCI researchers provides advice and guidance.
  • Demos and Work in Progress are contributions that, although original and innovative, have not yet reached the maturity for publication as a short or full paper, and will be presented in a special, highly interactive session.
  • The OzCHI Student Design Challenge (OzCHI24) is student competition that involves prototyping an innovative design solution to a real-world HCI research problem. The 24-hour challenge period will take place in August, and finalists will present at the OzCHI conference.
  • The Career Development Symposium is aimed at early career academics and researchers (postdocs, early career faculty), this inaugural one day OzCHI Symposium will provide discipline-specific career guidance and development. Participants will get the opportunity to learn from senior HCI mentors as well as from their peers, and will come away with a better understanding of how they want to develop as a successful HCI researcher.
  • Awards are presented to the highest quality papers and reviews.
  • At least one author of an accepted submission must register and attend the conference to have their paper published in the proceedings.
