We listen to YOUR voice and want to make OzCHI’19 even better – submit your conference ideas!

The best ideas are awarded during the conference closing session. ozCHI ‘Idea Box’:

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 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, including interface designers, user experience (UX) practitioners, information architects, software engineers, human factors experts, information systems analysts and social scientists.

After 18 years, OzCHI finally come back to Western Australia. Time has passed and things have changed a lot since OzCHI 2001.

More HCI and UX works have been done in Western Australia as well as its neighbouring countries. Having the privilege to convene the 2nd OzCHI conference in Western Australia, one of our objectives is to be inclusive towards attendees across overall Asia-Pacific.

The conference theme is Experience Design in Asia Pacific, which highlights the challenges we all face in the endeavour to tame the environment without destroying it to ensure our continuing existence. Our vision is to make OzCHI 2019 as an inclusive event for academic, industry, research, start-ups, maker communities to learn and exchange knowledge in the recent and emerging HCI and UX areas - practical, technical, empirical and theoretical aspects regardless their level of maturity in the fields.

We invite contributions on all topics related to Human-Computer Interaction, Interaction Design, Architecture, Engineering, Planning, Social Science, Creative Industries, and other related disciplines. Creating * Designing * Experiencing * Innovating * Intelligence * Community * Reaching out to Asia-Pacific

Join us in Perth/Fremantle, Western Australia in December 2019 to explore and understand the design and role of contemporary interactive technologies.


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 will be published in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series available from the ACM Digital Library. Award will be given to the highest quality

1. Long papers report on innovative, original, and completed research, which is relevant, significant, and interesting to the HCI community.

2. Short papers present ideas that are emerging and would benefit from discussion with members of the HCI community. This type of submission may include work-in-progress, experiences of reflective practitioners, and first drafts of novel concepts and approaches.

3. 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.

4. Doctoral consortium is a full-day intensive session for research students. A panel of experienced HCI researchers provides advice and guidance.

5. Student Design Challenge is an annual international competition in which students work rapidly researching, brainstorming and sketching a solution for a real HCI problem. This year the competition took place the 7th of April and now the submissions are under review, finalists will present their work at the OzCHI 2019 conference.

6. Industry papers provide the opportunity for practitioners and industries for their initiatives or new developments that could benefit from discussion with members of the HCI community.

7. Work-in-Progress papers are a subset of the long papers track (subject to the same format and deadlines). Rather than reporting on mature research, they describe work-in-progress, late-breaking and new ideas, questions, or challenges, and are intended to provoke discussion in the OzCHI community. The accepted submission will be required to present a poster

8. Demo/Posters is a venue for industry, research, startups, maker communities, the arts, and design to present their hands-on demonstration, share novel interactive technologies, and stage interactive experiences. This venue promotes and provokes discussion on novel technologies.
