online on 12 Sep 2009. The second round will be held at OZCHI on 24  
Nov 2009. In both rounds teams of 2-5 students are invited to develop  
a solution for a state-of-the-art research problem acquiring  
interaction design and HCI skills. Top entries will be awarded a  
travel scholarship for the conference (round 1) and prizes sponsored  
by our industry partners (round 2). For more information visit

The 2009 conference theme is Design: Open 24/7. Accessibility,  
inclusivity and dissolving boundaries are core to the Open 24/7 theme  
for the design of human interaction with and through digital  
technologies. The integration of digital technologies into our  
everyday life allows for a seamless transitioning between open and  
closed, work and leisure, public and private. Open implies  
participation and collaboration across traditional borders between  
individuals, organisations and disciplines. OZCHI 2009 provides a  
forum to discuss all aspects of openness, open borders, open  
participation, open source and open architecture. Theme-related  
submissions may address these topics:

..  Open always-on real-time ubiquitous and pervasive designs
..  Open design and universality versus situatedness,  
contextualisation and personalisation
..  Open source for design  design for open source
..  Open mind  new ideas, concepts and approaches from outside HCI
..  Beyond open  never closed: design for escapism


Submissions in all areas of HCI are encouraged. In addition, we  
particularly invite authors to address any of the following topics:   
Augmented Reality  |  Context and Location Awareness  |  Education and  
HCI  |  Health Care and HCI  |  Innovative Design Methodologies  |   
Smart Service Delivery  |  Sustainability  |  Universal Usability and  
Accessibility  |  Urban Informatics  |  Tangible User Interfaces  |   
Visualisation Techniques  |  Working across Cultures
