OzCHI 2015 Conference


We invite contributions on all topics related to Human-Computer Interaction, Interaction Design and the design of interactive technologies. Areas include practical, technical, empirical and theoretical aspects of Human-Computer Interaction. We welcome submissions from design, architecture, engineering, planning, social science, creative industries, and other related disciplines.

Submissions will be accepted in various categories as described below. All submissions must be written in English and follow formatting guidelines in the paper template. Both long and short papers will undergo a double-blind review by an international panel and evaluated on the basis of their significance, originality, and clarity of writing. This review will be based on the full text of the submitted paper. Accepted papers published in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series available from the ACM Digital Library.

  • Long papers report on innovative, original, and completed research, which is relevant, significant, and interesting to the HCI community.
  • Short papers present ideas that are emerging and would benefit from discussion with members of the HCI community. These papers may include work-in-progress, experiences of reflective practitioners, and first drafts of novel concepts and approaches.
  • Workshops are half-day and full-day sessions on topics that contribute to community building around a specific HCI topic. Topics may include methods, practices, and other areas of interest and that support active participation beyond presentation.
  • Doctoral consortium is a full-day intensive session for research students. A panel of experienced HCI researchers provides advice and guidance.

At least one author of an accepted submission must register and attend the conference to have their paper published in the proceedings.


There are many ways to participate in OzCHI 2015, including:

  • OzCHI Student Design Challenge, a 24-hour challenge for teams of 3—5 students to develop a solution to an HCI desgn problem.
  • Student volunteers, providing students with an opportunity to help in the organisation of OzCHI.
  • OzCHI Experience, a series of events that will provide attendees with memorable experiences of the conference, The University of Melbourne, and the city of Melbourne.
