Sponsorship information

The APCHI (Asia-Pacific Computer Human Interaction) conference is a biennial series focused on interactive computer systems. Quality of interaction is a major factor in product differentiation in the IT marketplace, and has been used by companies such as Apple, Adobe and Microsoft to gain competitive advantage.

The APCHI conference will attract computer-human interaction experts from industrial and academic backgrounds across the whole Asia/Pacific region, and is the latest in an ongoing series of such conferences. The APCHI series is the only pan-regional conference series in interactive computer systems regularly held outside of Europe and North America.

Past conferences:

  • 1st APCHI, 1996, Singapore
  • 2nd APCHI, 1997, Sydney, Australia
  • 3rd APCHI, 1998, Kanagawa, Japan
  • 4th APCHI, 2000, Singapore
  • 5th APCHI, 2002, Beijing, China

Previous sponsors include Microsoft, Sony and Software Research Associates.

A presence at the conference promotes:

  • Exposure to IT decision makers
  • Association with innovation, particularly in personal IT products, e.g. mobile phones, internet services.
  • An international profile.
  • Association with a prestigious, established conference series.

The 2004 APCHI conference will be held in Rotorua, New Zealand, and includes the annual CHINZ symposium. Keynote speakers include Don Norman (www.jnd.org) and Susan Dray (www.dray.com), who are both internationally renowned figures in academic and commercial arenas.
