OZCHI homepage

OZCHI 2006 is about how we do human-centred technology design.

We invite contributions on all topics related to Human-Computer Interaction and the design of interactive technologies, including practical, technical, empirical and theoretical aspects.

We particularly welcome contributions from those design approaches and traditions that have not always been central to Human-Computer Interaction in the past including: product design, built environments, new media and other areas where the design of interactive technology is practiced.

As always, we place enormous value on case studies of technology design from all domains of use and practice .

registration details (including Student Volunteers)

To register for OZCHI 2006, we prefer you to use the online facility, which allows you to either book and pay in full for the workshops and tutorials, the conference itself (which includes dinner for FULL registrations), extra dinner tickets and accommodation - or simply book and request a tax invoice on which to pay. Either way you will be "registered" on our database and followed up to ensure all your requirements are met.
