Call for Demonstrations and Exhibits

We kindly invite you to submit your proposals for demonstrations and exhibits to be held during the 18th ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI 2016), located in Tokyo, Japan on 12-16 November 2016.

Demonstrations and Exhibits

The ICMI 2016 Demonstrations & Exhibits session is intended to provide a forum to showcase innovative implementations, systems and technologies demonstrating new ideas about interactive multimodal interfaces. We particularly encourage demonstration of interactive and multimodal analysis systems and sensors. They can also serve to introduce commercial products.

Proposals may be of two types: demonstrations and exhibits. The main difference is that demonstrations include a 2-page paper, which will be included in ICMI proceedings. We encourage both the submission of early research prototypes and interesting mature systems. In addition, authors of accepted regular research papers are invited to participate in the demonstration sessions as well.

This year will feature a Multimodal Resources track to showcase novel corpora, annotation tools and schemes. Demonstrations in this track will benefit from more exposure to visitors, and will allow visitors to interact with the material.

Demonstration Submission

Demo proposals can be submitted at any time until August 28th, 2016. A 1-2 page description of the demonstration is required, which must be submitted electronically through the main ICMI conference management system ( Demo description(s) must be in PDF format, according to ACM publication format. Demo proposals should include a description with photographs and/or screen captures of the demonstration and, if possible, the URL of a website where a live version or video of the proposed demo is available. Please note that the accepted descriptions will be included in ICMI proceedings.

The reviewing will be double blind, so submissions should be anonymous: do not include the authors' names, affiliations or any clearly identifiable information in the paper. It is appropriate to cite past work of the authors if these citations are treated like any other (e.g., "Smith [5] approached this problem by....") - omit references only if it would be obviously identifying the authors. [Note: if a non-anonymous paper has already been submitted, please re-submit with the identifying information removed.]

Exhibit Submission

Exhibit proposals can be submitted at any time until September 5, 2016 September 7, 2016, and do not require a paper submission. Hence, exhibits won't have a paper published in the ICMI 2016 proceedings. To submit an exhibit, prospective applicants should fill out and submit an online form:

Exhibitors will be notified within one week.
