Call for Papers  CHI-SA 2006
5th Conference on Human Computer Interaction in Southern Africa Co- 
located with AFRIGRAPH 2006

Place: Cape Town International Convention Centre, Cape Town, South  
Date of Conference: 25-27 January 2006

You are cordially invited to participate in the 5th Southern African  
Conference on Human-Computer Interaction to be presented by CHI-SA  
(the SA HCI Special Interest Group) in collaboration with ACM SIGCHI  
and the Computer Society of South Africa.

CHI-SA 2006 welcomes contributions in the form of full papers or  
short papers. The conference particularly welcomes contributions that  
focus on User Interfaces in the developing world; addressing the use  
of computers in urban renewal, rural development, health, education,  
environment and the African arts and media.

As an interdisciplinary conference, CHI-SA accepts the following  
types of contributions:
Case Studies of the development and use of interactive systems that  
provide new insights for HCI research.
Interaction Technologies - a new technique, device, or other  
component of the user interface.
Interactive Systems - descriptions of the architecture, interface,  
and evaluation of a new interactive system.
Methodologies and Tools - new methods, processes, techniques, and  
tools for use in interactive system design, development, and deployment.
Metrics by which the performance of interactive technologies can be  
measured and compared more meaningfully.
Reflective Analyses - thought-provoking well substantiated analyses  
of HCI issues.
Results from case studies - findings, guidelines, and so on, from  
studies of real world settings, or of technology use in such  
settings, with clear relevance to the design and deployment of  
interactive systems.
Results from Laboratory Studies - findings, techniques, methods, and  
so on, from controlled studies of systems, techniques, and other  
phenomena relevant to HCI.
Theories and Models - descriptions and evaluation of HCI theories,  
models, and other formal approaches.

Submission Guidelines:
Papers are to be submitted electronically via email to  
[log in to unmask] Details are available on www.chi-

All contributions must be written and presented in English. Papers  
will be reviewed by an International Programme Committee and the  
Conference proceedings will be published by CHI-SA and also appear in  
the ACM Digital Library. There will also be an award for the best paper.

Short Papers
Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts of no more than 5 A4  
pages in length. These should represent late breaking results, work  
in progress or novel results that are more appropriate to a shorter  

Full Papers
Full papers should report research contributions, practice and  
experience, or novel applications. They must be no longer than 10 A4  
pages in length.

There is one day devoted to tutorials and exhibitions in the  
conference program. Tutorials must be in either a half-day or full- 
day format and the proposal should include details of the presenters,  
tutorial content, expected level of required delegate expertise and  
educational outcomes.

Important dates
Paper and Tutorial submission deadline: 15 October 2005
Notification of acceptance:             31 October 2005
Final version due:                      14 November 2005
