Call for Papers

We invite original contributions on all topics related to Human-Computer Interaction, Interaction Design and the design and use of interactive technologies. Submissions are invited for long papers, short papers, workshops, and the doctoral consortium.

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.
  • Conceptual papers are a subset of the long papers track (subject to the same format and deadlines). Rather than reporting on mature research, they describe new ideas, questions, or challenges, and are intended to provoke discussion in the OzCHI community.
  • Short papers present ideas that are emerging and would benefit from discussion with members of the HCI community. These papers may include initial findings from new research, experiences of reflective practitioners, and first drafts of novel concepts and approaches.
  • 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.
  • 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 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.
  • Student Design Challenge is an annual international competition in which students work rapidly researching, brainstorming and sketching a solution for a real HCI problem. This year the competition took place the 7th of April and now the submissions are under review, finalists will present their work at the OzCHI conference.


  • 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 proceedings.
