The demo session will be the highlight of the conference reception.

Also, we want to provide a chance to suggest long-term demos that could be exhibited and used throughout the conference, for example:

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

Note that the demonstrations must be about research, not business. The demo forum is not an opportunity for marketing or sales presentations, while the business-related visibility is available for sponsors.

Preparing the Submission

Your extended abstract should be submitted by May 15th to the Conference Submission System, using the MobileHCI 2017 Extended Abstracts format. Submissions do not need to be anonymous. The submission should include:

Self-plagiarism must naturally be avoided.

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.

Archived in Adjunct Proceedings

Accepted submissions will be included in the ACM Digital Library as part of the MobileHCI 2017 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. At least one author of a demo must register by the early registration deadline.
