Call For Papers

Your last chance to submit a DEST E1 publication to OZCHI 2008
has just been extended to September 8, 2008.

DEMOS and the DOCTORIAL CONSORTIUM has now been extended
by 7 days to account for the extended review of long papers and
requests by authors. Short papers accepted to OZCHI 2008 meet
DEST publication requirements and will be included in the ACM
Digital Library. We particularly invite submissions by authors whose
long papers we were not able to accommodate in the conference
owing to the exceptional quality of submissions this year.

OZCHI 2008: Designing for Habitat & Habitus
Annual conference of the
Australian Computer-Human Interaction Special Interest Group
8 - 12 December 2008
Tropical Far North Queensland, Australia

OZCHI is the annual conference for the Computer-Human Interaction
Special Interest Group (CHISIG) of the Human Factors and Ergonomics
Society of Australia, a non-profit event. It is Australia's leading
forum for work in all areas of Human-Computer Interaction. OZCHI
attracts an international community of practitioners, researchers,
academics and students from a wide range of disciplines including
user experience designers, information architects, software engineers,
human factors experts, information systems analysts, social scientists
or managers. Accepted papers are published in the ACM Digital
Library. We look forward to your involvement at this year's OZCHI

The conference is located at James Cook University's Cairns campus
in the tropics of Far North Queensland, Australia, with accommodation
at the Palm Cove resort. The main conference will be from Wednesday
10 to Friday 12 December 2008 when we have pleasure in presenting
keynotes Paul Dourish (U. California, Irvine), Gary Marsden (University
of Cape Town) and Fiona Ingram (Sensis), and panel sessions by
paradigm shifting entrepreneurs and researchers. The main conference
will be preceded by two days of Workshops, Tutorials and a Doctoral
Consortium led by leaders in their fields from Australia and overseas
on Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 December 2008.

Conference Chair: Nic Bidwell

Special-theme Conference Topics

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the role of
technology in supporting and enhancing our life-experiences and
relationships within the environments we inhabit. This extends across
work, domestic, and playful settings and the experienced and sensed
life that, for example, enchants and provides vibrancy, communal
trust, identity and a sense of self. OZCHI'08 will explore developing
technology and interactions for rural and dispersed populations,
supporting those working, living and travelling to remote regions and
responding to issues of community, environmental and economic

Cultural and Diversity Aspects of HCI
Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing beyond the City
Felt-life, Affective HCI, Emotion, Motivational aspects
Simple technologies in a complex world
Methods for design and evaluation across cultural boundaries


Submissions will be accepted in various categories as described below.
All submissions must be written in English.

Accepted short papers and doctoral consortium, and summaries for
industry case studies, panels and demonstrations will be available in
the published proceedings. At least one author of any accepted
submission must register and attend the conference, for publication in
the proceedings.

For all guidelines and submission details, please see the conference
web site: Additionally, for short papers,
please follow the detailed instructions in the paper template
available from the website. Short papers will undergo a double blind
review process by an international panel and evaluated on the basis of
their significance, originality, and clarity of writing.

Short-length papers up to 4 pages should present ideas that could
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.

Case study submissions should be a maximum of 2 pages (including
figures) indicating any infrastructure and equipment requirements. The
sessions are reflective pieces by practitioners or academics about an
experience related to HCI.

Demo submissions should be a maximum of 2 pages (including
figures) indicating any infrastructure and equipment requirements.
Demo sessions offer interactive opportunity to showcase research
prototypes, finished devices, processes, methods, services and
industry applications. We invite demos of all approaches across the
full range of HCI related topics, these may be related to submitted
papers or completely independent of the other content in the
conference. We encourage you to make your demo visually, or
otherwise, appealing and present it in an innovative way.
