Saved by Design?

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

Call for Papers


We invite original contributions on all topics related to human-computer interaction, interaction design and the design of interactive technologies. We welcome submissions from design, engineering, social science, creative industries and other related disciplines.

Research papers should present original research and mature work in the field of human-computer interaction. These papers may describe investigations of user needs or contexts of use, lab-based evaluations or field deployments of prototypes, or other design-led or empirical investigations examining the relationship between people and technology.

We no longer have the category of “Short Papers”, but we are now accepting submissions to the Papers track that are any length between 4 and 10 pages. The length of the paper should correspond to the contribution it makes. Authors are encouraged to consider submitting their work either to the Papers track or to the Late-Breaking Work track, depending on the maturity of the work.
