OZCHI is Australia's leading forum for work in all areas of Computer-Human
Interaction.  It 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 and managers.
 The conference also welcomes perspectives from design, architecture,
engineering, planning, social science and creative industries among other
disciplines.



OZCHI is the annual conference of the Computer-Human Interaction Special
Interest Group (CHISIG) of the Human Factors and Ergonomic Society of Australia
(HFESA). 



 



CONFERENCE THEME



The
conference theme, “Design, Culture and Interaction”, reflects both the global
nature of HCI and the diversity of cultures within which people incorporate
interactive use of computers in their daily lives and HCI practitioners and
researchers conduct their research and build their applications.



 



CONFERENCE TOPICS



Human-Computer
interaction is changing rapidly with notable growth and advancing research in
the areas of:



	User
     Interfaces in Mobile devices
	Social
     and collaboration technologies
	Mashups
     and end-user programming
	Embodied
     interaction and tangible computing
	Ubiquitous
     computing
	Visualisation,
     mixed reality and game technologies
	Intelligent
     User Interfaces
	Consideration
     of affective, emotional and motivational aspects
	Design
     and social research methods
	User
     Interaction Issues with the use of ICT in expanding cultural contexts and

	Musical
     interaction
	Health
     and Welfare
	HCI

SUBMISSIONS



The OZCHI
committee invites original contributions on all topics related to
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) including practical, technical,
methodological, empirical and theoretical aspects, and, where appropriate,
address the conference theme of “Design, Culture and Interaction”.



All submissions must be written in English. Both long and short papers will
undergo a double blind review process by an international panel and will be
evaluated on the basis of their significance, originality, and clarity of
writing. Accepted long papers and short papers will be available in the USB
proceedings and will be included in the ACM Digital Library. At least one
author of any accepted submission must register for publication in the
proceedings.



All submissions must use the two column OZCHI proceedings template.



OzCHI 2011 will use the EasyChair conference paper management system. 
Detailed instructions will be found on the conference website www.ozchi.org

 

OzCHI 2011 is being held “In cooperation” with the ACM and accepted long and
short papers will be included in the ACM Digital Library.



 



Short Papers and Posters



Short
papers, 4 pages in length, provide the opportunity to describe new work or work
that is still in progress that could benefit from discussion with members of
the HCI community. They may include experiences of reflective practitioners,
preliminary work, work in progress and first drafts of novel concepts and
approaches. Short papers will follow the same review process as the long
papers. They will be included in the USB proceedings and archived in the ACM
digital library.



	Submission

Industry Track



Industry
submissions are invited for the following categories:



	Case
     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.
	Proposals
     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.
	Proposals
     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.
	Proposals
     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
     adjudicator.
	Proposals
     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.
