32nd Australian Conference on
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI)

This year, the OzCHI conference will take place online over the course of three days (2-4 December), preceded by a by-invitation only doctoral consortium (1 December). This page contains detailed information about how to register for the conference.

Information for attendees

Doctoral consortium (1 December)

By-invitation only
No registration fee
Registration will be handled by the Doctoral Consortium Chairs (dc.chairs@ozchi.org)

3-day conference (2-4 December)

Full pass (non-members) – AUD 30
Full pass (CHISIG, ACM or ACM SIGCHI members) – free

The full pass will give you access to all conference sessions, including keynotes, paper presentations, panel discussions and more. All sessions will be delivered via Zoom. We will announce the full program in October.

CHISIG members log in to their Human Factors and Ergonomic Society of Australia (HFESA) account before registering so that they get free registration. Note that CHISIG is a special interest group of HFESA. After logging into their HFESA account, CHISIG members can register via the HFESA registration site.

ACM and ACM SIGCHI members contact the HFESA office by email office@ergonomics.org.au with your name, affiliation, email address and ACM member number before noon (AEST) on Tuesday 1 December. The office manager will set up your registration.

Full time students can join the HFESA for free this year (via this link) and can nominate CHISIG as their preferred special interest group. They should do this before they register for OzCHI. Students will need to provide evidence at sign-up that they are studying full-time. After signing up for HFESA and logging into their HFESA account, students can register via the HFESA registration site.

Non-members can register via the HFESA registration site.

Registration closes on Tuesday 1 December noon (AEST).

Information for authors

Publication fee

Given the new online format, we are introducing a separate publication fee for accepted Papers and LBWs to be published in the conference proceedings. This fee covers costs associated with the publication process.

The publication fee for each accepted Paper is AUD 75. The publication fee for each accepted LBW is also AUD 75.

Note that the publication fee is per Paper / LBW, not per author. This means that if an author has two papers accepted, they will need to pay two publication fees (AUD 150).

The publication fee does not depend on the number of authors.

To minimise the logistical overhead and given that the publication fee is very low compared to previous years’ conference registration fees, we are not providing any discounts for student authors. If you are a student author and don’t have access to support funds through your university, we recommend that you seek assistance from your supervisor.

We understand that these are difficult times and we are able to support a small number of cases, where student authors can demonstrate financial hardship. Please contact the Paper (paper.chairs@ozchi.org) or LBW Chairs (lbw.chairs@ozchi.org) to discuss your situation.

Paying the publication fee

A representative of HFESA will contact you via the contact email address that you have submitted for your Paper or LBW in PCS, to arrange payment of the publication fee. Payment is via credit card. You will receive an invoice for your payment.

Presenting your work at the conference

At least one author is expected to present their accepted Paper or LBW at the OzCHI conference. We will do our best to arrange session times to cater for multiple time zones. If for any reason, you are not able to present your work, please contact the Paper (paper.chairs@ozchi.org) or LBW Chairs (lbw.chairs@ozchi.org).

Any authors that would like to attend the conference, including the presenting author(s), will need to register for the conference.
