Location: University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand
[log in to unmask]

The CHINZ conferences provide a general forum for all those involved with CHI (or HCI) to address the
human use of technology. We welcome full length research papers in all areas of this diverse field and
especially encourage graduate students to present at the conference. There will be workshops on 6 July
and poster sessions during the conference, at which we would encourage industry practitioners to present.

The conference will address a wide range of topics around the central theme of making CHI natural.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: natural interactions; social implications of
technology (e.g., for disabled or elderly); mobile technologies; games; robotics; tools and tool support;
cyber psychology; usability; guidelines and heuristics; implications of technology for cognition;
education aspects; and case studies from practice.

The proceedings of this conference will be a volume in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series
in the ACM Digital Library.

The conference will be hosted by the University of Auckland, which is situated in the heart of Auckland
city (the city of sails). For visitors to New Zealand, Auckland is the international gateway for flights
to the rest of the country. July, being winter, is outside of the high season for flights and tourists.
The average daily temperature for July is 13 deg C.
