Hi everyone!

This year I am running a user interface conference in Hobart,  
Tasmania (in Australia) and I thought I would forward the CFP on to  
this list in case there is anyone who would like to present a paper  
and also get the chance to visit Australia. The conference is  
suitable for anyone doing work with user interfaces, visualisation,  
3D interaction, VR, AR, etc. Full papers are reviewed by an  
international PC and archived in the ACM digital library.

We have granted a one week extension for paper submissions to August  
26, 2005. So there are still nearly two weeks until papers are due,  
and so I invite you to consider submitting a paper if you thought you  
were going to miss the deadline. If you have not submitted an  
abstract these can be submitted with the final paper by August 26.

I think it will be a great conference and I look forward to seeing  
you all there. Please read the following CFP, consult the web site,  
and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me ...


AUIC 2006 Program Chair

***           Australasian User Interface Conference 2006           ***
***    Hobart, Tasmania - January 2006 -    ***

EXTENDED DUE DATE: Full papers are now due August 26, 2005.

This is the final call for papers for the 7th Australasian User  
Interface Conference, to be held in Hobart, Tasmania in January 2006.  
My name is Wayne Piekarski and I am the conference chair, and I would  
like to invite you to submit a paper, and attend the conference. I  
would particularly like to welcome overseas guests to come visit  
Australia and participate in the conference. The AUIC conference is  
part of Australasian Computer Science Week, which contains a number  
of conferences such as ACSC, ACE, ADC, AUIC, CATS, and APCCM.

This year we have made a number of exciting changes to the  
conference, including demonstration sessions and discussion panels.  
Other appealing features of the conference include publication of  
papers in the ACM Digital Library, proceedings published in CRPIT  
with an independent ISBN number, fully refereed papers by an  
international program committee, and a small workshop feel which  
allows in-depth discussion amongst participants.

I look forward to seeing your paper submissions and attendance at the  
conference in 2006!

* Paper Submission Details *

Submissions must include the authors' names, affiliations and  
addresses, a 200-word abstract, and 3 to 6 keywords identifying the  
subject area. Full papers exceeding 8 pages and short papers  
exceeding 4 pages will not be reviewed. A paper should not be  
submitted to more than one of the conferences in ACSW. Submitted  
papers (and camera-ready copy for accepted papers) will be required  
to conform to the formatting guidelines of the series Conferences in  
Research and Practice in Information Technology.

Please visit the AUIC web site at for  
detailed information on how to format and submit a paper.

* Important Dates *

Please submit your full paper by August 26, 2005 according to the  
instructions at - previously we requested  
abstracts by an earlier due date but if you have not submitted an

We will notify authors in October after the reviewing process is

* About AUIC *

The Australasian User Interface Conference (AUIC) is a technology- 
focused forum for user interface researchers and practitioners from  
Australia and New Zealand, and throughout the world. The conference,  
which is one of several conferences that constitute the Australasian  
Computer Science Week, provides an opportunity for workers in the  
areas of HCI, CSCW, and pervasive computing to meet with colleagues  
and with others in the broader computer science community.

We welcome original papers and short papers describing research or  
innovative practice. AUIC invites participation and submissions from  
researchers and practitioners with an interest in techniques, tools,  
and technology for improving user interfaces over a wide range of  
areas, including the following:

- User interface architectures, tools, techniques, and technology.
- Innovative applications and user interfaces, including VR,  
multimedia, and adaptive interfaces
- Distributed interfaces, including the World Wide Web
- Ambient and highly mobile devices (PDAs, wearable computers)
- CSCW, group work, groupware, and computer-mediated human communication
- HCI education

All papers in the proceedings of ACSW conferences (including AUIC)  
are archived in the ACM Digital Library. As with previous years,  
registration to the Australasian User Interface Conference will  
enable delegates to attend sessions in any conference participating  
in the Australasian Computer Science Week.


I look forward to seeing you at the conference!
