OzCHI 2010 (Nov 2010, Brisbane Australia)

OzCHI 2010 Design – Interaction – Participation
OZCHI 2010 is not open for submission of Short Papers / Demonstrations / Case Studies / Doctoral Consortium applications
Deadline for Submission:  Friday 27th August 2010.

OzCHI 2010 is held at Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
22nd-26th Nov 2010 http://www.ozchi.org/

OZCHI is Australia’s leading forum for research on the design and study of Human-Computer Interaction and CHISIG’s (www.chisig.org) annual non-profit conference. OZCHI attracts an international community of practitioners, researchers, academics and students.

The 2010 conference theme is Design  Interaction  Participation. It reflects the challenges of designing human interaction with and through digital technologies in ways that support diverse participation.

SHORT PAPERS
Short papers, 4 pages in length, provide the opportunity to describe new work or work that is still in progress that could benefit from discussion with members of the HCI community. They may include experiences of reflective practitioners, preliminary work, work in progress and first drafts of novel concepts and approaches. Short papers will be subject to a double blind review process by at least three peer reviewers 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. Short and long papers will be included in the USB proceedings and archived in the ACM digital library.

MORE ABOUT OzCHI RESEARCH
Human computer interaction is changing rapidly with notable growth and advancing research in the areas of:

Mobile devices;
Social and collaboration technologies;
Open-source software, mash-ups and end-user programming;
Embodied interaction and tangible computing;
Ubiquitous computing and sensor networks;
Visualization, mixed reality and game technologies;
Machine intelligence and smart services;
Data mining and e-research;
Consideration of affective, emotional and motivational aspects;
Design and social research methods;
Use of ICT in expanding cultural contexts;
Use of ICT in all aspects of home, work, play and life.

Aspects of participation, collaboration, access, trust, privacy and context of use remain pivotal in framing interaction that is mediated by technologies.

We invite original contributions on all topics related to Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) including design, practical, technical, methodological, empirical, theoretical and participatory aspects.

We look forward to your involvement at this year’s OZCHI conference.

The conference will be held from Wednesday 24th to Friday 26th November 2010 and will be preceded by two days of Workshops, Tutorials, a Student Design Challenge and a Doctoral Consortium on Monday 22nd and Tuesday 23rd November 2010. The conference is located in the heart of sub-tropical Brisbane at the Queensland University
of Technology, Gardens Point Campus.

The long and short papers accepted in the conference will be archived and accessible in the ACM Digital Library.

OzCHI in Brisbane is followed by The 11th Participatory Design Conference, PDC 2010 in Sydney. November 29 – December 3, 2010  www.pdc2010.org.

STUDENT DESIGN CHALLENGE
Like last year, OZCHI will be preceded by a student design challenge, where teams of 2-5 students are invited to submit a solution for a given HCI research problem. For information about last year’s design challenge visit http://ozchi-design.org/. For updates follow http://twitter.com/ozchi24.
