General Information

We invite researchers and practitioners to submit their work to the Late-Breaking Results category of MobileHCI 2020. Work that is best suited for this type of 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. Poster abstracts appear in the ACM Digital Library (DL). 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.

Preparing the Submission

All poster submissions must include an extended abstract in PDF format

The extended abstract has a maximum limit of 6 pages, including all figures and references, and must be in the SIGCHI Extended Abstracts Format. The review process will be double-blinded hence the submission must be anonymized by removing 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 via the PCS submission system.

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 Do not cite publications that are proprietary or confidential at the time of publication.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 at the given. All submissions conflicting with one or more guidelines will be removed before the reviewing process.

For the camera ready submission of the LBW, you will have to use the following template:

Submissions will be managed in the PCS submission system.


Late-breaking results will be reviewed by members of the MobileHCI Late Breaking Results Session 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, and results. It should highlight the novelty and importance of your work and invite for discussion. For each accepted submission, at least one author must register for the MobileHCI 2020 conference by the early registration deadline. During a dedicated poster session, authors are obliged to accompany their posters, present and discuss them with conference attendees. Authors are expected to bring the accepted posters to the conference site with them and be present throughout the poster session.

Final Submission

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

Accepted submissions will be presented as a poster in PDF format at the conference. Accepted Late-Breaking Results abstracts will be included in the ACM Digital Library as part of the MobileHCI 2020 Adjunct Proceedings. 

Besides the camera-ready version of their LBR paper, authors should make sure to submit a poster (PDF) in landscape format, which will be integrated into the Miro board for conference attendees to visit. Additionally, authors have the option to submit a short (2-min max) video to walk attendees through said PDF. This video will appear along with the PDF on the Miro board. Tips regarding the preparation of the presentation video can be found in the guide prepared by David Ayman.

For the conference, authors will be assigned two dedicated presentation slots. The presentation should be given twice to accommodate attendees from different time zones, which ensures maximum visibility for your poster.
