Dear Colleagues, it is our great pleasure to invite you to contribute to the 33rd Australian Conference on Human-Computer Interaction (OzCHI 2021

OzCHI is the annual non-profit conference for the Computer-Human Interaction Special Interest Group (CHISIG) and Australia's leading forum for the latest in HCI research and practice. OzCHI attracts a broad international community of researchers, industry practitioners, academics, and students. Participants come from a range of backgrounds and include interaction designers, user experience (UX) practitioners, information architects, software engineers, human factors experts, information systems analysts and social scientists.

This year, OzCHI will be held as a virtual conference with Papers and Late-Breaking Work / Case Studies tracks, and more tracks to be announced soon.
Important dates

Conference Dates: 30 November - 03 December 2021 – Location ONLINE

20 August 2021: Paper submission deadline
1 October 2021: Notification of accepted submissions

Call for Contributions

We invite original contributions on all topics related to human-computer interaction (HCI), interaction design and the design of interactive technologies. We welcome submissions from design, engineering, social science, creative industries, and other related disciplines. In acknowledgement of the effect that Covid-19 had on everyone’s ability to conduct research, we have pushed back the Paper deadline. We invite submission to the conference tracks: Papers, Late Breaking Works, and Case Studies. 

Papers should present original research and mature work in the fields of HCI and studies of use and design of interactive technologies. These papers may describe investigations of user needs or contexts of use, lab-based evaluations, or field deployments of prototypes, or other design-led or empirical investigations examining the relationship between people and technology. Given the impact of Covid-19 on conducting research studies, authors are encouraged to also consider submitting theory-based contributions that make a clear contribution to the field.

Papers will be delivered as online presentations at OzCHI 2021. We are planning for accepted papers to be published in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series available from the ACM Digital Library (pending approval by ACM).

Late-Breaking Works (LBW) submissions present ideas that are emerging and would benefit from discussion with members of the HCI community. These submissions may include initial findings from new research, experiences of reflective practitioners, and first drafts of novel concepts and approaches. 

Case Studies include industry and community papers that describe initiatives that could benefit from and contribute to valuable discussion in the HCI community, as well as research impact papers that report on the impact of a research initiative. Case studies differ from papers as they do not need to define themselves as part of the potentially longer-term body of academic research on that topic, and thus may not have an extensive literature review or explicitly add to HCI theory within academic schools of thought.

Selection process

All submissions will undergo a double-blind review by an international panel and will be assessed based on their significance, originality, and clarity of writing. 
At least one author of each accepted paper must register with OzCHI and present the paper at the virtual conference. We are aiming to keep costs for authors as low as possible again this year. Updates on registration and online presentation format will be published on the OzCHI website.
Authors of all submitted papers are expected to contribute to the review process by volunteering to review one or more papers in their field of expertise. Review assignment will be guided by a bidding process, to ensure the best possible match between reviewers and paper topic. 

Submission details

Papers should be between 9 and 18 pages (excluding references). Reviewers will be instructed to weigh the contribution of a submission relative to its length. Shorter, more focused submissions are encouraged and will be reviewed accordingly.

Case Studies and LBW submissions may be up to 8 pages in the single-column ACM format, (excluding references).

Anonymisation: Submissions must be anonymised for peer review. Citations of own work and general anonymisation standards should follow the CHI anonymisation policy 

Submission system: OzCHI will accept submissions through PCS, the submission link will be published on the OzCHI website soon.

Submission format: single column format in PDF using Word or LaTeX, including source files.

Template: Papers, Case Studies, and LBW submissions must follow the new Word/LaTeX Master Article template.
