|Submission of Poster and Demo papers|
We welcome demonstrations & interactivity prototypes from students and researchers in all stages of their career. We particularly encourage undergraduate students and authors of accepted papers (details in the submission section) to contribute their demos. An appealing and innovative demonstration presents an opportunity to further display and disseminate your research and 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. Business-related visibility is only available for sponsors.
The submission should include:
Description: maximum six pages long description (including figures) of the demonstrated system, followed by citations. If the system has been demonstrated before, describe if there are any changes to the proposed demo.
Practical details (1-2 pages), outlining how you plan to share your demo, including:
Video: a brief video (2 minutes maximum) showcasing your demo.
Accepted papers that include interactive experiences are granted a place in the demo session by default. We highly encourage all authors of demo-able papers to make use of this opportunity to showcase their work and connect with the attendees. For full paper authors, we provide a more light-weight demo submission process: to indicate that the accepted paper will be accompanied by a demo, authors only need to submit the practical details document, the specification of the infrastructure requirements. In addition, we ask authors to indicate the submission number of the paper accompanied by the demo. In case authors would like to have an additional extended abstract published, they can also decide to submit an up to six-page description in extended abstract format. Self-plagiarism must naturally be avoided.
Submissions do not need to be anonymous.
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 & Interactivity 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.
Accepted submissions will be included in the ACM Digital Library as part of the MobileHCI 2021 Adjunct Proceedings. ACM will send you a copyright form, which you have to complete. Once completed, ACM will provide you the copyright information to be put into your paper. You can then submit the camera-ready version (including the copyright notice) through the submission system.
Upon acceptance, you have to present your demo (virtually) at the conference. At least one author of a demo must register by the early registration deadline. Participants are expected to prepare their demo to be shared through a live camera feed. Participants should also have a quality microphone for discussing their work with conference attendees. Prior to the conference, you should prepare a poster outlining your work:
As the demo track will be held virtually, we will endeavour to provide a fun, interactive, and lively environment for authors to share their work. Preparations for a virtual Demos & Interactivity Track will proceed as follows:
