Call for Demos & Interactivity Prototypes
The MobileHCI 2023 Demo & Interactivity track provides a space for researchers and practitioners to bring hands-on experiences to conference attendees. We look forward to seeing and trying interesting:
We welcome demonstrations & interactivity prototypes from students and researchers in all stages of their careers. 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.
We are currently planning for MobileHCI 2023 to be a hybrid event, to be held simultaneously on a virtual conference platform and in-person. We will endeavor to provide a fun, interactive, and lively environment for authors to share their work, both virtually and physically. We especially appreciate clever approaches to providing high-quality interactive hybrid experiences, for getting engaged both virtual and on-site participants. All submissions must detail how they are to be presented according to how authors plan to participate in the conference: virtually in case of remote participation or on-site in case of physical attendance Hybrid approaches are appreciated but not enforced.

The submission should include:
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 will submit the presentation plan(s), demo video and the submission number of the paper. 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.
Demos submissions are required to present a presentation plan according to their choice to present their demo physically or virtually. The selection process will consider the proposed plan. Upon acceptance, possible changes to the proposed plan may be requested for making presentations feasible at the conference (e.g., for fitting the capacity of the demo space).
Accepted submissions will be included in the ACM Digital Library as part of the MobileHCI 2023 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 will present your demo at the conference. At least one author of a demo must register by the early registration deadline. All demos may be presented virtually, and in-person at the conference venue.
Accepted demos must additionally submit a 30-second teaser video, which will be incorporated into a demo reel available to conference attendees.
The demos & interactivity track is planned to occur as follows:
University of Cagliari, Italy
Playground AI, USA
City University of Hong Kong, China
