General Information

The MobileHCI 2015 Demonstration track provides a space for researchers and practitioners to bring hands-on experiences to conference attendees. We want to see and try your:

  • Prototypes
  • Services
  • Devices
  • Systems
  • Innovative examples of mobile experiences or interactions

We encourage making your demonstration visually or otherwise appealing and presenting it in an innovative way, to attract the participation of attendees.

Demos will be shown during a conference demo reception.

Preparing the Submission

Your extended abstract should be submitted by May 8 to the Conference Submission System, using the MobileHCI 2015 Extended Abstracts format. The submission should include:

  • Maximum of eight page description (including figures), max 4 MB.
  • One page specification of the infrastructural requirements. Please specify which of the default facilities you intend to use and whether you have additional wishes. The Demonstrations Chairs will investigate infrastructure and equipment possibilities for the accepted demonstrations.
  • Equipment and Resources

Authors of accepted full and shorts papers at the conference can submit a shortened submission for demos, where they only need to submit the one page specification of the infrastructural requirements. In case authors would like to have an additional extended abstract published, they can however also decide to submit an up to 8-page description in extended abstract format."

Participants are expected to bring the necessary equipment to the conference site with them. By default, the conference will provide:

  • One table
  • One poster board with enough space for one A0-sized poster in portrait orientation (if required, please specify)
  • One power outlet

The chairs will do their best to accommodate requests for additional setup requirements. Please ask!

Selection Process

The selection process for MobileHCI demos is curated, that is, selected by an esteemed committee, but not sent out to external reviewers. The curated demo content will be selected from demonstration submissions, accepted papers, as well as projects invited by the demo chairs. Authors will not receive formal feedback on their submission other than the selection decision. Confidentiality of submissions will be maintained during the selection process. All rejected submissions will be kept confidential in perpetuity. All submitted materials for accepted submissions will be kept confidential until the start of the conference.

Final Submission

Accepted submissions will will be included in the ACM Digital Library as part of the MobileHCI 2015 Adjunct Proceedings. Please submit your camera-ready version without any copyright notice. Subsequently, ACM will send you a copyright form, which you have to complete. Once completed, we will provide you with the new copyright information to be put into your paper. You can then submit the final version (including the new copyright notice) through the submission system.

More Information

Submission of the final camera-ready version includes and is not complete without giving us permission to distribute your final camera-ready version as described above. This permission is given when submitting the final version of your work via the Conference Review System. Upon acceptance, you have to present your demo at the conference.
