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 1-2 page paper, which will be included in the ICMI main proceedings,
while the exhibits only need to include a brief outline (no more than one page; 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 1-2 page description of the demonstration 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 2 pages in length including references (see submission format). 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 one page) and
more suitable for mature systems. Exhibits will not have a paper published in the ICMI 2021
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).
