OzCHI 2015

Here we are at OzCHI, counting down the hours to the SDC presentations on Wednesday at 3:30pm in Melbourne.

Three teams will present the solutions that they developed during the 24 hour student challenge. After the challenge, they were ranked on the submitted solutions, but now our crack team of expert judges will assess each presentation and determine the final rankings.

Stay tuned for the presentations!

OzCHI SDC 2015 Proceedings

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.
