ACM ICMI 2023 CALL FOR DEMONSTRATIONS AND EXHIBITS
9-13 October 2023, Paris - France
We invite you to submit your proposals for demonstrations and exhibits to be held during the 25th ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI 2023), located in Paris, France, October 9-13th 2023. This year’s conference theme is “Science of Multimodal Interactions”.
Demonstrations and Exhibits
The ICMI 2023 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 as a platform to introduce commercial products.
Proposals may be of two types: demonstrations or exhibits. The main difference is that demonstrations include a 2-3 page 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 (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. For instructions and links to the templates, please see the Guidelines for Authors (https://icmi.acm.org/2023/guidelines-for-authors/).
Demonstration proposals should include a description with photographs and/or screen captures of the demonstration. Demonstration submissions should be accompanied by a video of the proposed demo (no larger than 200MB), which can include a set of slides (no more than 10 slides) in PowerPoint format.
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 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 regular papers accepted for presentation at the conference. Please note that the accepted demos 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 are more suitable for showcasing mature systems. Like demos, submissions for exhibits should be accompanied by a video (no larger than 200MB), which can include a set of slides (no more than 10 slides) in PowerPoint format. Exhibits will not have a paper published in the ICMI 2023 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 them 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).
