Industry Papers

Industry papers provide the opportunity to describe industry initiatives or new developments 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. Industry papers will follow the same review process as short papers, except reviewers will be invited from members of the HCI community with an industry background. We particularly encourage demonstrations (such as prototypes and videos) to be presented.

This year we accept two types of submissions: papers and abstracts in order to offer more flexible pathways for industry members to contribute and attend OzCHI 2019. Both types will present at the conference in the Industry Track with the same amount of time allocated. The difference is whether the accepted contribution will be published in the conference proceedings (short papers only).

We invite original contributions on industry case studies related to Human-Computer Interaction, User Experience, Human Factors, Interaction Design. We also invite contributions in this category that concern process, methods or the state of the professional discipline.

Submissions should include information on:

  • What was the goal of the project
  • Who were the main stakeholders (domain of industry and/or community partners, user groups and other stakeholders)
  • Key information of the project such as length, context, challenges, methods used
  • What was the outcome of the project
  • Conclusions and take home message
