Call for Demonstrations and Exhibits

We kindly invite you to submit your proposals for demonstrations and exhibits to be held during the 19th ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI 2017), located in Glasgow, Scotland on 13-17 November 2017.

Demonstrations and Exhibits

The ICMI 2017 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 short paper (2 pages), which will be included in ICMI proceedings, while the exhibits only need to include a short outline (no more than 1 page). 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

A 1-2 page description of the demonstration is required, which must be submitted electronically through the main ICMI conference management system (https://precisionconference.com/~icmi). Demo description(s) must be in PDF format, according to the ACM conference format, of no more than 2 pages in length including references (template available at: ACM Templates). 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 selection process is juried (curated) by committee, according to criteria such as: suitability as a demo, scientific or engineering feasibility of the proposed demo system, application, or interactivity, alignment with the conference focus, potential to engage the audience, and overall quality and presentation of the written proposal. Authors are encouraged to address such criteria in their proposals (paper submission), along with preparing the short papers mindful of the quality and rigorous scientific expectations of an ACM publication.

The curated demo program will be selected from the submitted proposals as well as invited demos from among full-length papers accepted for presentation at the conference which the committee deems suitable for demonstration.

The demo and exhibit paper submissions should not be anonymous. However, all ACM rules and guidelines related to paper submission should be followed (e.g. plagiarism, including self-plagiarism).

Exhibit Submission

Exhibit proposals should be submitted following the same guidelines, formatting, and due dates as for demo proposals. The main difference is that exhibits proposals should be shorter in length (up to one page) and more suitable for very mature systems (commercial or almost commercial). Exhibits won't have a paper published in the ICMI 2017 proceedings.
