Call for Papers - CHINZ 2007

The 8th Annual ACM SIGCHI_NZ conference on Computer-Human Interaction will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners involved with Human Computer Interaction in New Zealand or other parts of the world.

The aim of this symposium is to bring together people interested in HCI, to allow them to exchange views, share experiences, and learn from one another. We welcome full length research papers in all areas of HCI, as well as work-in-progress, case-studies, industrial perspectives, student work and system demonstrations.

In particular, we strongly encourage submissions by academics and practitioners involved in computer graphic design and research, on the topics of its applications or implications for human-computer interaction and user interface design.

Important dates

30 March 2007 10th April 2007 - all submissions due

17 May 2007 - response to authors

1 June 2007 - final submissions due



Full paper submissions are invited in all areas of Computer-Human Interaction. We also welcome proposals for posters and system demonstrations. Submissions should report original work, and will be reviewed. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference, published in the conference proceedings, and the ACM Digital Library. Papers should be no more than 8 pages in length and submitted as PDF files.

Graduate Students' Workshop

The conference will also include a two-day HCI Graduate Students' Workshop. There is likely to be some limited funding available to assist selected students in attending this workshop and the conference. Students interested in attending the workshop are required to submit a one-page summary of their research by the due date for conference submissions.


Workshop proposals are also invited for consideration. We encourage half-day workshops on HCI or computer graphic design topics, which are suitable for academics and practitioners. A two-page proposal, including information on the workshop's topic, abstract, and intended audience should be submitted by the due date.

Submission process

All submissions should be made using the CHINZ 2007 EasyChair page.

You will need to create an EasyChair account to submit your work.


The conference will take place over four days. The Graduate Students' Workshop and the general Workshops will be held on 1-2 July. This will be followed by the technical paper sessions and invited talks on 3-4 July.
