OzCHI 2021

33rd Australian Conference on
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI)

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.

Call for papers

Papers should present original research and mature work in the fields of HCI and interaction design. 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. Given the impact of Covid-19 on conducting research studies, authors are encouraged to also consider submitting theory-based contributions that make a clear contribution to the field.

Papers will be delivered as online presentations at OzCHI 2021. We are planning for accepted papers to be published in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series available from the ACM Digital Library (pending approval by ACM).

Important dates

  • 6 August 2021: Paper submission deadline
  • 17 September 2021: Notification of accepted submissions
  • 8 October 2021: Publication-ready deadline

Submission details

Selection process

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.

At least one author of each accepted paper must register to OzCHI and present the paper at the conference. Each accepted paper will be subject to a AUD 75 publication fee to cover the cost of inclusion in the ACM Digital Library.

At least one author of each accepted paper must register with OzCHI and present the paper at the virtual conference. We are aiming to keep costs for authors as low as possible again this year. Updates on registration and online presentation format will be published here on the OzCHI website.
