CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
======================

UbiComp 2006 - The Eighth International Conference on Ubiquituous Computing
   http://www.ubicomp.org/ubicomp2006/

   Conference Date: 17. - 21.09.2006
   Conference Venue: Marriott Newport Beach, Orange County, California
 
   Hosted by:
   Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences
   University of California, Irvine

Overview:
=========
This mail contains the calls for 
1. Videos, 
2. Demos and 
3. Posters. 
You can review all calls at: http://www.ubicomp.org/ubicomp2006/calls/

Important Dates and Deadlines:
==============================
Submission Deadline: June 16, 2006
Acceptance Notification: July 14, 2006 



1. CALL FOR VIDEOS
==================
Videos are increasingly becoming an integral part of the UbiComp
conference series: they offer the chance to showcase emerging
technologies, prototype systems, and new approaches to using
ubiquitous computing. Videos are especially useful for illustrating
complex systems and new interactions with systems in special
environments that would not easily be presented as demonstrations at
the conference.

The video program will be shown at a special session at the
conference, and will be published on a DVD and distributed to
conference attendees (although copyright will be retained by the
authors). A panel of international reviewers will review videos for
their technical content, interest, and relevance to the ubiquitous
computing community. Other important review aspects will be the
video's communication effectiveness and production quality.

Video submissions should be 4 to 8 minutes long, have not been
presented previously in any other formal video program, and must
include a short paper with a maximum of 2 pages (ACM SIGCHI conference
publications format).  For detailed information on submission
procedure and accepted formats, see the Call for Videos Webpage at 

http://www.ubicomp.org/ubicomp2006/calls/videos/

Important Dates and Deadlines:
==============================
Submission Deadline: June 16, 2006

2. CALL FOR DEMOS
=================
The Ubicomp conference's Demonstrations Program offers an excellent way 
to showcase tangible results of ubiquitous computing research and 
development to over 500 attendees from academia and industry. A 
successful demo communicates ideas and concepts in a powerful way that a 
regular presentation cannot. We invite you to contribute your vision of 
the ubicomp experience to the Demonstrations Program at the UbiComp 2006 
conference. We particularly encourage demonstrations that include 
participation by conference attendees and provoke discussion about issues 
within the field of ubiquitous computing. 

We seek proposals for demonstrations of ubiquitous computing technologies 
across the full milieu of everyday life: office, home, street, park, 
train, automobile, bedroom, bathroom, work, play, desktop, handheld, worn, 
public, private, community, individual, shared, and personal. We welcome 
a wide range of submission from scenarios involving innovative solutions 
of focused tasks as well as playful pursuits.

NOTE:
====
There will be a special Demonstrations and Poster Reception during the 
main conference, when conference attendees will be able to interact with 
demonstrations. Additionally, we encourage presenters to showcase their 
demos during this conference banquet, which will be held outdoors on the 
lawn of the UC Irvine campus. This provides a unique opportunity for 
systems that could benefit from being outdoors, especially those that use 
GPS.

Reviewing:
==========
All submissions will be peer-reviewed to ensure a high quality 
demonstrations program. Each demonstration will be reviewed by at least 
two members of the demonstration review committee. In an electronic 
discussion, the committee will make final decisions on which submissions 
to accept. 

Proposals will be judged on their relevance for the ubicomp community, 
level of innovation, technical merit, conceptual contribution and the 
potential to include participation by conference attendees. Furthermore, 
to make a successful demo submission, you need to have a strategy to 
present visitors the main points in a short time. You must also convince 
the committee that you are capable of installing and running the demo at 
the conference. 

Demonstrations do not have the same requirements on originality as papers 
and posters. It is acceptable to submit a demonstration even if the main 
points have been published at the UbiComp conference (including this 
year) or elsewhere. However, the demonstration format should still add 
significantly to any previous presentations. To make it easier to judge 
this, you must provide a complete history of previous presentations of 
the submitted work and work directly related to it. 

A demonstration is not the right forum to promote commercial products. In 
this case, please instead consider becoming a sponsor or exhibitor. 

Submission Requirements:
========================
A demonstration submission requires two parts: 
  
A demonstration abstract that describes the technology being exhibited and 
discusses the novelty and distinguishing ideas or approaches it brings to 
the ubiquitous computing community. The demonstration abstract will be 
published in the Conference Supplement and should therefore be 
self-contained. It should be a maximum of 2 pages, in the ACM SIGCHI 
conference publications format, including all figures and references. 
Please make sure that your submitted abstract complies to all the 
formatting guidelines and is ready for publication, since there will be 
no time to make major revisions. 
    
A demonstration supplement that details how the demo will be executed in 
practice, and how visitors will interact with it during the conference. 
The interaction can be described in the form of a short usage scenario, 
storyboard sketch, screenshots, illustrations, photos, and/or video 
documentation. The demonstration supplement should also include the 
various technical requirements such as preferred setting, space, power, 
networking, lighting, acoustical, and other special equipment. A 
demonstration supplement submission template is available at the bottom 
of this webpage. Demonstration supplement materials are for the purposes 
of review only and will not be published. A template for demonstration 
supplements is provided below. 
     
Your submission should be sent as a single PDF file to the following 
address: [log in to unmask] The subject line should read: UbiComp Demo 
Submission - NAME OF MAIN CONTACT. The name of the attached file should 
similarly be: NAME OF MAIN CONTACT.pdf. Links to additional material 
(videos, etc.) should be included both in the mail and in the supplement. 

Upon Acceptance:
================
You will be required to install your demonstration in the conference venue 
on September 17, and have it packed away by the end of the conference, on 
September 21. 

You are required to have your demonstration up and running throughout the 
Demonstrations and Poster Reception. In addition, we strongly encourage 
you to have your demo staffed and available throughout the conference, 
especially during breaks. 

The conference will at minimum provide a space for your demo, a table and 
chairs, and a power connection. If you need any special equipment you 
should provide that yourself, including projectors, audio amplification, 
wireless LAN, etc. Please specify all needs in your demonstration 
supplement so that we can plan the demo area accordingly.

3. CALL FOR POSTERS
===================
The Posters category provides researchers with an opportunity to present work 
in a forum that facilitates open discussion, and enables authors to interact 
directly with conference attendees. In the Posters category, we encourage the 
submission of late-breaking, preliminary, or exploratory work, smaller 
projects or results not suitable for a full paper, and any other research 
that authors wish to present in an interactive, open forum.

Poster submissions should include an extended abstract of no longer 
than 2 pages in the ACM SIGCHI conference publications format, including all 
figures and references. Submissions may also include an optional single page 
describing or illustrating the proposed poster. This page is should convey to 
reviewers visual aspects of the poster that may not come across in the 
abstract, for example including a key graphic to be used in the poster. This 
supplemental page is for review purposes only and will not be published.
   
Accepted 2-page Poster abstracts will be published in a Conference Supplement 
that will be distributed to attendees at the conference; they will not be 
incorporated into the main UbiComp 2006 Conference Proceedings.
