Call for Posters

General Information

We invite researchers and practitioners to submit their work to the poster track at MobileHCI 2018. Work that is best suited for a poster submission includes – but is not limited to – preliminary results, provoking and current topics, novel experiences or interactions that have not been fully tested but show great promise, summaries of small-scale studies, design explorations etc. Posters provide the opportunity for researchers to get feedback on early-stage work, discuss potential collaborations and discuss the burning issues in MobileHCI in an informal manner with the larger MobileHCI community.

Accepted posters appear in the ACM DL and in the conference proceedings companion volume as extended abstracts. Copyright is retained by the authors, and the material from them can be used as the basis for future publications as long as there are significant revisions from the original.

Important Dates

  • May 16th, 2018 – Submission of poster papers
  • Jun 20th, 2018 – Notification
  • Jul 2nd, 2018 – Camera-ready submission

Preparing the Submission

All poster submissions must include an extended abstract in PDF format.

The extended abstract has a maximum limit of 8 pages, including all figures and references, and must be in the SIGCHI Extended Abstracts Format. The submission will be blind reviewed and must be anonymized — please remove names and affiliations from the first page and any other material that would allow authorship to be easily identified by the reviewers. Your extended abstract should be submitted to the Precision Conference System. NOTE: this year the submission will consist only of the extended abstract paper – a draft of the poster is not required.

Your submission must be original work. It cannot have been published elsewhere, nor can it be under concurrent review for publication by another conference or journal. All references must be complete, accurate, accessible to the HCI public, and conform to the Conference Proceedings Publication Format. Do not cite publications that are proprietary or confidential at the time of publication. Final camera-ready versions of accepted submissions therefore must be accompanied by a signed copyright form which will be provided to accepted authors. All submissions conflicting with one or more guidelines will be removed before the reviewing process.

Submissions will be managed in PCS


Poster submissions will be reviewed by members of the MobileHCI Poster Committee. Confidentiality of submissions is maintained during the review 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.

Presentation at the conference

Upon acceptance you should prepare a poster in order to effectively communicate your research problem, techniques, results, highlighting what is novel and important about your work. For each accepted paper, at least one author must register for the MobileHCI 2018 conference by the early registration deadline. During a dedicated poster session, authors will have the opportunity to accompany their posters, present and discuss them with conference attendees. Poster participants will also have the chance to introduce their posters in a “Madness” plenary session through 30-second presentation pitches. More details about poster sizing requirements will be communicated after the notification date.
