Researchers are invited to propose workshops to be held at OzCHI 2019, on 2 December 2019 in Perth / Fremantle, Western Australia. OzCHI workshops aim to bring together researchers in the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) to engage with specific topics of interest. We welcome workshops on HCI methods, practices, and other emerging areas of interest. Organizers of accepted workshops will be required to solicit position papers and accept responsibility for conducting the workshop.

Review Process

Workshop proposals will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers. Selection will consider the quality of the proposal and its potential to attract participants, while avoiding overlap.

Important Dates

  • 24th May: Workshop proposal submissions due
  • 14th June: Workshop confirmations sent to organizers
  • mid September (exact date tba): Workshop position paper deadline
  • late September (exact date tba): Workshop position paper decisions to authors
  • 2 December: Workshops conducted

Workshop Organisation

Organisers of accepted workshops should encourage participation and solicit position papers by widely advertising their workshop. Potential workshop participants submit a position paper to the organisers in the format specified by organisers. Workshop organisers will review position papers using their own criteria, and determining the final list of attendees is the responsibility of workshop organisers. Organisers should aim for a minimum of 10 and maximum of 25 participants. Workshops with low participant numbers may be cancelled. At least one author of each accepted position paper must attend the workshop. Attendees (organisers and participants) will need to pay the workshop participation fee.


Successful proposals will be included in the OZCHI proceedings in the ACM digital library. Position papers will not be included. However organisers are encouraged to generate their own proceedings if they wish to do so.

Workshop Proposals

Workshop proposals should include:

  • A 150 word abstract which, if your proposal is successful, will be used to advertise your workshop on the OzCHI website.
  • A motivation and justification for the workshop, citing any relevant literature.
  • A description of the participants you would expect for your workshop: what should they hope to get out of your workshop; are they drawn from industry or academia or both?
  • Brief (150 word maximum) bio of each workshop organizer.
  • A workshop schedule with room/layout requirements.
