This year we shortlisted 3 finalists and 3 runner ups teams whose papers will be included in the digital proceedings of OzCHI 2015. Below we list all the papers that these teams submitted to illustrate their process to come up to the final design solution for the given challenge. The first three are the finalist teams (in the order of their current positions from first to third, after the 24 hour challenge) and the rest three are the runner-up teams. The final awards will be awarded during the OzCHI 2015 where the three finalist teams will be competing again based on the overall performance.
