CALL FOR PAPERS
The 12th Annual ACM SIGCHI_NZ conference on Computer-Human Interaction will provide a forum for researchers and
practitioners involved with Human Computer Interaction in New Zealand or other parts of the world. CHINZ 2011 aims to bring
together people interested in any aspect of HCI and Interaction Design, to allow them to share their experiences, exchange their
ideas, learn from one another, and promote collaboration in research and development.
18 March 2011 all submissions due
29 April 2011 response to authors
20 May 2011 final submissions due
We welcome full length research papers and short papers (e.g. work-in-progress, case-studies, industrial perspectives, and
system demonstrations) in all relevant areas of HCI and Interaction Design. In particular, we strongly encourage submissions by
graduate students. Submissions should report original work, and will be reviewed. Accepted papers will be presented at the
conference, published in the conference proceedings, and the ACM Digital Library. Full papers should be no more than 8 pages
in length, and short papers should be between 2 and 4 pages. Details of the required format and submission process are
available on the conference website.
Workshop proposals are also invited for consideration. We encourage half-day workshops on HCI, Interaction Design or
Computer Graphic Design topics, which are suitable for academics and practitioners. A two-page proposal, including information
on the workshop’s topic, abstract, and intended audience should be submitted by the due date.
Funding for graduate students
ACM SIGCHI_NZ aims to increase the participation of graduate students from New Zealand universities in CHINZ conferences.
To encourage this, the top 5 papers co-authored and presented by a graduate student from New Zealand universities will have
their conference registration fees paid by ACM SIGCHI_NZ. One of these students will also receive the best student paper
award, with an additional cash prize of NZ$300.
