About OzCHI

OzCHI is the annual non-profit conference for the Computer-Human Interaction Special Interest Group (CHISIG) and Australia's leading forum for the latest in HCI research and practice.
OzCHI attracts a broad international community of researchers, industry practitioners, academics and students.

Participants come from a range of backgrounds, including interface designers, user experience (UX) practitioners, information architects, software engineers, human factors experts, information systems analysts and social scientists.

Join us in Melbourne 2018 to explore and understand the design and role of contemporary interactive technologies.

What is the Student Design Challenge?

The OzCHI 2018 Student Design Challenge (SDC) is open to student teams from around the world. At the beginning of the 24 hour challenge (7 April, 10am AEST), participants will receive a design brief. Teams work rapidly to research, brainstorm, sketch, prototype, and role play to design a solution responding to the brief. At the end of the 24 hours, teams submit a video showcasing their design, and a written paper. Experienced HCI scholars and designers peer review the submissions to select finalist teams. Finalists will present their design at OzCHI (Melbourne, Dec 2018) , and a panel of judges, including industry representatives, selects the winning team.
