Call for Demonstrations and Exhibits
We invite you to submit your proposals for demonstrations and exhibits to be held during the
23rd ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI 2021), located in Montreal,
Canada, October 18-22nd, 2021. This year's conference theme is on multimodal interaction for
behavioural health and virtual connectivity.
Demonstrations and Exhibits
The ICMI 2021 Demonstrations & Exhibits session is intended to provide a forum to showcase innovative implementations,
systems and technologies demonstrating new ideas about interactive multimodal interfaces. It can also serve to
introduce commercial products.
Proposals may be of two types: demonstrations or exhibits. The main difference is that demonstrations include a 2-3
pages paper in one column, which will be included in the ICMI main proceedings, while the exhibits only need to
include a brief outline (no more than two pages in one column; not 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 may be invited to participate in the demonstration sessions as well.
Please submit a 2-3 page description of the demonstration in a single column format through the main ICMI conference
management system (https://new.precisionconference.com/sigchi). Demonstration description(s) must be in PDF
format, according to the ACM conference format, of no more than 3 pages in a single column format including
references. The instructions and templates are on the following link: https://www.acm.org/publications/taps/word-template-worflow. Demonstration proposals
should include a description with photographs and/or screen captures of the demonstration. A video of the proposed
demo should accompany the submission (no larger than 200MB), which can be in PowerPoint format (no more than 10
slides). The demo and exhibit paper submissions are not anonymous. However, all ACM rules and guidelines related to
paper submission should be followed (e.g. plagiarism, including self-plagiarism).
The demonstration submissions will be peer reviewed, according to the following criteria: 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, along with preparing the short papers mindful of
the quality and rigorous scientific expectations of an ACM publication.
The demo program will include the accepted proposals and may additionally include invited demos from among full-length
papers accepted for presentation at the conference. Please note that the accepted descriptions will be included in the
ICMI main proceedings.
Exhibit proposals should be submitted following the same guidelines, formatting, and due dates as for demonstration
proposals. Exhibit proposals must be shorter in length (up to two pages) and more suitable for mature systems.
Exhibits will not have a paper published in the ICMI 2021 proceedings.
Once accepted, demonstrators and video presenters will be provided with a table, poster board, power outlet and
wireless (shared) Internet. Demo and video presenters are expected to bring with themselves everything else needed for
their demo and video presentations, such as hardware, laptops, sensors, PCs, etc. However, if you have special
requests such as a larger space, special lighting conditions and so on, we will do our best to arrange them.
Important note for the authors: The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the
ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of the conference. The official
publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
At least one author of all accepted Demonstrations and Exhibits submissions must register for and attend the
conference, including the conference demonstrations and exhibits session(s).
