The CHINZ conference provides a general forum for all those involved with Computer Human Interaction (CHI or HCI).We welcome full length and short research papers in all areas of this diverse field and especially encourage graduate students to present at the conference. There will workshops and hands-on demonstrations during the conference, at which we would encourage industry and academic practitioners to present.

HCI is not a single, monolithic discipline, it brings together techniques, ideas, methodologies and theories from very different disciplines. At CHI 2012 we try to focus on this inter- and multi- disciplinarity. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Interaction design
  • user centred design, applying design principles in HCI, social implications of technology (e.g., for disabled or elderly)
  • mobile technologies
  • games
  • robotics
  • tools and tool support
  • cyber psychology
  • usability
  • guidelines and heuristics
  • implications of technology for cognition
  • education aspects
  • design science, human factors, mixed reality, interactive visual communication, and industry case studies

Please contact the conference organizers for more details if you are unsure about how appropriate your work is.
