Researchers are invited to join a one-day workshop on Computing and Mental Health, to be held on 29th November at OzCHI 2016, Launceston.

There is growing interest in exploring a role for technology in enhancing psychological wellbeing, with mental health now a major topic for CHI and related journals. This year Calvo et al. (2016) organized the inaugural CHI Workshop on Computing and Mental Health, which attracted over 100 enthusiastic attendees. The organizers resolved to hold an annual workshop at CHI and suggested that related workshops be held at regional conferences. This OzCHI workshop brings together researchers to discuss their work in computing and mental health, and features keynote presentations from Professor Ian Hickie, head of the University of Sydney's Brain and Mind Centre, and Professor Jane Burns, head of the Young and Well Cooperative Research Centre.

Submissions are sought that address aspects of technology for mental health and wellbeing, including but not limited to:

* detection and diagnosis
* user-centred and participatory design and evaluation
* user experience
* affective computing
* positive computing
* ethical issues
* emerging technologies.

Participants need not submit a position paper; however only those who do will be invited to present. Papers will be selected according to their quality, relevance to the workshop theme, and likelihood to provoke discussion. Papers should be 2 to 4 pages long, in OzCHI format. Short papers will be made public on the workshop website, unless otherwise requested. Longer papers will be considered for a special issue associated with the CHI workshop to be published in JMIR before May 2017.

* Please submit papers to our Easychair site by 26th August.
* Notification of acceptances will be sent by 23rd September.
* The workshop will be held on 29th November, 2016.
