How to submit in 2014!

Remember to keep your blog up to date with all the juicy details of your OzCHI adventure. Anything you can’t fit in the paper but think is important should be posted on your blog. When the review panel needs clarification on your paper or video they will look in your blog, so remember to use references where applicable.

For the paper follow this year’s paper writing guide found here. As you are writing your paper (making sure to use the OzCHI paper template), you should upload it to Easychair. If you don’t have an Easychair account, you can sign up by registering a new account. We strongly recommend that you create your EasyChair accounts now!

You may submit multiple versions of your paper (and it’s probably a good idea in case something goes wrong). If you have multiple versions on EasyChair the last submitted paper is the version that will be reviewed.

Here is a a step-by-step guide for successfully submitting your paper:

  1. Once you are logged in, click on ‘New Submission’ in the menu bar.
  2. Check to make sure you are in the ‘(OzCHI24 Student Design Competition)’ track
  3. Fill in first name, last name, email address, country, and organisation (your university) for each of the members in your team.
  4. Tick the ‘corresponding author’ box for the member in your team that will handle all the correspondence for your team; we will send out the feedback and results from the judging process to this author.
  5. Enter the title and abstract for your paper – these should be the same as in your actual paper (if necessary you can update this later)
  6. Enter at least three keywords (one per line) that describe your submission, for example the keywords might be: email, communication, task management. (if necessary you can update this later)
  7. Upload your paper (ideally as PDF) by clicking on the ‘Choose file’ button.
  8. Click the ‘Submit’ button at the very end of the page and wait for the upload process to be completed.

When you need to submit a new version of your paper, in EasyChair click on your ‘Submission #’ on the title bar, which will take you into a details page for your submission. Then to upload the new version, click the ‘Upload a new version’ link in the menu on the top right corner. From the same menu on the submission details page, you can also update your author information and paper details (title and abstract and keywords).

Remember to include a link to your blog and video in your references. It’s through your references that the review panel will be able to check your final video, so make sure you’ve uploaded the video and gotten it’s URL early enough to include it as a reference!
