OzCHI is Australia’s leading forum for the latest in Human-Computer Interaction 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 experts, information architects, software engineers, human factors specialists, 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. Therefore we seek contributions in the “space” of Creating, Designing, Experiencing, Innovating, Intelligence, and Community.
