Call: OzCHI 2017, Australian Computer-Human Interaction Conference

Call for Papers

OzCHI 2017 – Human-Nature
Australian Computer-Human Interaction Conference
Brisbane; 28th Nov-1st Dec 2017

First deadline: Long papers due 6 June 2017

We invite original contributions on all topics related to Human-Computer Interaction, Interaction Design and the design of interactive technologies. Submissions are invited for long papers, short papers, work-in-progress papers, workshops, demonstrations, the Doctoral Consortium and the Student Design Challenge.

OzCHI is the annual non-profit conference for the Computer-Human Interaction Special Interest Group (CHISIG) of the Human Factors and Ergonomic Society of Australia. OzCHI is 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 typically come from more than 25 countries and from a range of backgrounds, including interface designers, user experience experts, information architects, software engineers, human factors specialists, information systems analysts and social scientists. We welcome international submissions and participation.  We encourage submissions and participation from industry.

The theme of the conference this year is Human-Nature. Our theme highlights both the need for socio-technical systems which bring out our better human nature, and the need to better engage people with the natural environment in which we live in order that we understand, appreciate and learn to live in harmony with nature and the wonders it holds.


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 will be 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.
  • Awards are presented to the highest quality papers and reviews.
  • The OzCHI Student Design Challenge (OzCHI24) is student competition that involves prototyping an innovative design solution to a real-world HCI research problem. The 24-hour challenge period will take place in August, and finalists will present at the OzCHI conference.
  • At least one author of an accepted submission must register and attend the conference to have their paper published in the proceedings.
