CHINZ 2011
12th Annual Conference of the New Zealand Chapter of the ACM Special 
Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction
4-5 July 2011
The University of Waikato - Hamilton, New Zealand


The 12th Annual Conference of the New Zealand Chapter of the ACM Special 
Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction will provide a forum for 
researchers and practitioners involved with Human Computer Interaction 
in New Zealand or other parts of the world. CHINZ 2011 aims to bring 
together people interested in any aspect of HCI and Interaction Design, 
to allow them to share their experiences, exchange their ideas, learn 
from one another, and promote collaboration in research and development.

Important dates
1 April 2011 all submissions due
29 April 2011 response to authors
20 May 2011 final submissions due

We welcome full length research papers and short papers (e.g. 
work-in-progress, case-studies, industrial perspectives, and system 
demonstrations) in all relevant areas of HCI and Interaction Design. In 
particular, we strongly encourage submissions by graduate students. 
Submissions should report original work, and will be reviewed. Accepted 
papers will be presented at the conference, published in a volume of ACM 
International Conference Proceedings Series, and included in the ACM 
Digital Library. Full papers should be no more than 8 pages in length, 
and short papers should be between 2 and 4 pages. Details of the 
required format and submission process are available on the conference 

Workshop proposals are also invited for consideration. We encourage 
half-day workshops on HCI, Interaction Design, Computer Graphic Design, 
or other related topics, which are suitable for academics and 
practitioners. A two-page proposal, including information on the 
workshop’s topic, abstract, and intended audience should be submitted by 
the due date.

Funding for graduate students
The New Zealand Chapter of the ACM Special Interest Group on 
Computer-Human Interaction (ACM SIGCHI_NZ) aims to increase the 
participation of graduate students from New Zealand universities in 
CHINZ conferences. To encourage this, the top 5 papers co-authored and 
presented by a graduate student from New Zealand universities will have 
their conference registration fees paid by ACM SIGCHI_NZ. One of these 
students will also receive the Best Student Paper Award, with an 
additional cash prize of NZ$300.

The conference will feature two Keynote Speakers, Holger Regenbrecht and 
Trent Mankelow.

Holger Regenbrecht is an Associate Professor at the University of 
Otago's Information Science department. He has been working in the 
fields of Virtual and Augmented Reality for over 15 years and was 
initiator and manager of the Virtual Reality Laboratory at Bauhaus 
University Weimar (Germany) and the Mixed Reality Laboratory at 
DaimlerChrysler Research and Technology (Ulm, Germany). Currently he 
leads the Multimedia Systems Research Laboratory at the University of 
Otago. His research interests include Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), 
Applied Computer Science and Information Technology, (collaborative) 
Augmented Reality, 3D Teleconferencing, psychological aspects of Mixed 
Reality, three-dimensional user interfaces (3DUI) and computer-aided 
therapy and rehabilitation.

Trent Mankelow is the co-founder and CEO of Optimal Usability, New 
Zealand's leading usability consultancy company. Since 2002 Optimal 
Usability has observed over 4,500 people interacting with all sorts of 
touchpoints, including websites, paper forms, kiosks, websites and 
interactive voice response systems. Trent regularly speaks on customer 
experience, self-service and usability.
