submissions are invited for the following categories:
Studies. Submissions should focus on the HCI aspects of the case study
and, where appropriate, address the conference theme of "Design,
Culture and Interaction" (described above). Case studies are an
important part of the industry track because they provide real-world
insights and understanding.
for industry panels. Proposals are invited on panel topics that would be
of interest to the industry attendees. The proposer should suggest
possible composition of the panel and should outline the brief to which
the panel members would be asked to speak.
for "Open Mic" or 10 minute talks. An "Open Mic"
or freeform talk session is an event where industry and academic
presenters respond to a certain topic in a free form or ad hoc manner.
for a Debate. A debate format is a lively way to present a topic in a
different and more controversial manner. Session format will be between 4
– 6 speakers (split between a positive and negative view) plus one
for "Round Table" discussions. These would be run during the
lunch breaks and should be focused on a topic and lightly facilitated.
Industry submissions will take the form of a
proposal of up to 500 words. These should
be sent by email to the Industry&Sponsorship Chairs at sponsorships.chair[AT]ozchi.org. These
submissions could take the form of case studies, panels, lunch time
roundtables, debates, or any other format (to be discussed with Industry
chairs). Submissions are due by 2nd September 2011.
