The 2009 conference theme is Design: Open 24/7. Accessibility,
inclusivity and dissolving boundaries are core to the Open 24/7 theme
for the design of human interaction with and through digital
technologies. The integration of digital technologies into our
everyday life allows for a seamless transitioning between open and
closed, work and leisure, public and private. Open implies
participation and collaboration across traditional borders between
individuals, organisations and disciplines. OZCHI 2009 provides a
forum to discuss all aspects of openness, open borders, open
participation, open source and open architecture. Theme-related
submissions may address these topics:

..  Open always-on real-time ubiquitous and pervasive designs
..  Open design and universality versus situatedness,
contextualisation and personalisation
..  Open source for design – design for open source
..  Open mind – new ideas, concepts and approaches from outside HCI
..  Beyond open – never closed: design for escapism


Submissions in all areas of HCI are encouraged. In addition, we
particularly invite authors to address any of the following topics:
Augmented Reality  |  Context and Location Awareness  |  Education and
HCI  |  Health Care and HCI  |  Innovative Design Methodologies  |
Smart Service Delivery  |  Sustainability  |  Universal Usability and
Accessibility  |  Urban Informatics  |  Tangible User Interfaces  |
Visualisation Techniques  |  Working across Cultures


All submissions must be written in English. Both long and short papers
will undergo a double blind review process by an international panel
and evaluated on the basis of their significance, originality, and
clarity of writing. Accepted long papers and short papers will be
available in the published proceedings. At least one author of any
accepted submission must register and attend the conference and
present the paper for publication in the proceedings. All submissions
must use the two column OZCHI proceedings template: http://www.ozchi.org/mediawiki/ozchipaper_template2009.doc
 and be submitted to the conference submission site: http://precisionconference.com/~ozchi

Short length papers, up to 4 pages, should present ideas that could
benefit from discussion with members of the HCI community. These
papers may include work-in-progress, experiences of reflective
practitioners, and first drafts of novel concepts and approaches.
