OZCHI is the annual conference for the Computer-Human Interaction Special Interest Group (CHISIG) of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society of Australia, a non-profit event. It is Australia's leading forum for work in all areas of Human-Computer Interaction. OZCHI attracts an international community of practitioners, researchers, academics and students from a wide range of disciplines including user experience designers, information architects, software engineers, human factors experts, information systems analysts, social scientists or managers. We look forward to your involvement at this year's OZCHI conference.

This year's theme is Designing Futures: the Future of Design

OZCHI 2014 is about how we can shape the future of human-centred technology design in a fast changing technology landscape.
We invite contributions on all topics related to Human-Computer Interaction, Interaction Design and the design of interactive technologies, including practical, technical, empirical and theoretical aspects. We particularly welcome contributions from those design approaches that deal with emergent technologies in an ever diversifying environment of use. As always, we place enormous value on case studies of technology design from all domains of use and practice.

CHIFish is a novel web app to help conference delegates interactively explore conference presentations, view the conference schedule, assemble a personal program for the conference, and provide quick and easy access to abstracts and full papers.

This year, Jon Pearce and a team from Involved have redesigned the ChiFish conference app to make it bigger and better! New features include a section that lets you explore and contact the delegates who are attending OzCHI. ChiFish will run on mobile devices as well as desktops and notebook computers. You'll enjoy it! It will be available at http://ozchi2014.ifish.io
