OZCHI is Australia and New Zealand's leading forum for work in all areas of human-computer interaction. As the annual conference for the Computer-Human Interaction Special Interest Group (CHISIG) of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society of Australia (HFESA), OZCHI attracts an international community of researchers and practitioners with a wide range of interests, including usability, information architecture, interaction design, human factors and ergonomics, human-computer interaction, information systems, software engineering, artificial intelligence, design, social sciences and management.
There are several opportunities for participation, including:
- Workshops and tutorials on the 28th of November.
- A Doctorial Consortium on the 28th November.
- Technical papers, short papers, posters, industry case studies, panels and demonstrations on the 29th and 30th of November.
28 November 2007 - Tutorials/Workshops/Phd Consortium
29-30th November 2007 - OZCHI 2007 Conference, Adelaide
- OZCHI 2007 is now over
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 describing future interface technologies and research prototypes that may become commonplace in the future. The CHI community is 25 years old in the US, and 20 years old in Australia. At OZCHI 2007 we will celebrate the past while showcasing future techniques. As always, we place enormous value on case studies of technology design.
In keeping with the theme Entertaining User Interfaces, topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- User-centred analysis, design and evaluation
- Organizational context and technology design
- HCI methods, tools & techniques
- Novel interfaces including tangible and mixed reality interfaces
- Experiences for mobile and ubiquitous computing
- Designing for multi-user interaction
- User studies and fieldwork
- Participatory design and cooperative design techniques
- Supporting diverse user populations
- User-centred design in non-traditional contexts and environments
- HCI education and design education
In addition, contributions that advance the theory or practice of any aspect of HCI are welcome.
Submissions will be accepted in various categories as described below. All submissions must be written in English. Submissions for long papers and short papers can be made online.
Instructions for submission
Submissions have now closed
Instructions are now here for reference only.
In order to have the paper published in the proceedings, it is necessary for at least one author of any accepted submission to register and attend the conference.
Long Papers: (maximum 8 pages) Long papers should report on completed research which furthers topics relevant to the conference. Deadline for submission is 15th June 2007.
Short Papers and Posters: (maximum 4 pages) Short papers should present ideas that could benefit from discussion with members of the HCI community. These papers may include work-in-progress, experiences of reflective practitioners, and first drafts of novel concepts and approaches. Deadline for submission is 7th September 2007.
Posters: (2 page extended abstract and proposed poster layout - maximum 1200mm x 1200mm). A poster session will be scheduled during the technical program. Deadline for submission is 7th September 2007.
Industry Case Studies: (maximum 8 pages) Industry case studies should present accounts of the design and/or development and/or use of interactive technologies. Deadline for submission is 15th June 2007.
Panels: (maximum 2 pages) Panel proposals can address topics of interest to both research and practice in HCI. Deadline for submission is 7th September 2007.
Demonstrations: (maximum 2 pages). Opportunities for demonstrations of applications, devices, process and methods will be available throughout the conference. Deadline for submission is 7th September 2007.
Workshops and Tutorials: (3 page proposal) Half day and full day sessions on topics that include methods, practices, and other areas of interest and that support active participation beyond presentation are welcome. Workshops will be held on 28th November before the start of the paper sessions. Deadline for submission is 17th August. Tutorials: (2 page proposal) Half day and full day sessions for teaching conceptual frameworks, methods/techniques, and novel approaches. The tutorials will be held on 28th November before the start of the paper sessions. Deadline for submission is 17th August.
Doctoral Consortium: (initial 2 page proposal) Full day session on November 28, before the start of the paper sessions. Deadline for submission is 7th September 2007.
Guidelines and submission details can be found by following the links to the relevant submission area. In addition, for long and short papers, please follow the detailed instructions in the Paper Template and Submission Guidelines (Word format). Both long and short papers will be subject to a double blind review process 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 long papers, short papers and summaries for posters, industry case studies, panels and demonstrations will be available in the published proceedings.
