* Bring your interactive tables, walls and new interfaces to Banff for
ITS 2009 and do not forget your skis! Submission deadline is September
30, 2009. *

Demos provide an interactive forum for authors to present their work
to conference attendees and get feedback on it from the leading
experts. The demo session provides an opportunity to interactively
present research prototypes and works-in-progress as well as your best
demos of the last year. Both independent demonstrations and those
accompanying accepted papers and posters are welcome. Demo submissions
should be submitted through our online system in the form of a maximum
4 minute video. At the conference we want the ITS participants to
literally get in touch with your demos. Our main goal is to provide a
forum for lively discussions and a hands-on experience.

Important Dates:
Submission of Demo Video: September 30, 2009
Notification: October 10, 2009
TIS 2009: November 23–25, 2009

Submission Instructions:
Your demo must be submitted via the PCS submission system.
Submitted videos are for review purpose only and will not be
published. However, successful submissions will be included on the TIS
2009 Conference DVD and will be archived in the ACM DL. The video
submission should be not bigger than 75MB. There is a set time limit
for the videos of 4 minutes. We realize that making shorter films is
more difficult, but shorter films often transport the ideas better
than longer ones.

Please make sure that your video is playable on standard PC and Apple computers.

Please make sure that your video is playable on standard PC and
Macintosh computers.

    * The movie file should use a square pixel aspect ratio with a
horizontal resolution of at least 640 pixels and at most 1280 pixels.
Examples of acceptable pixel resolutions are 640×360 pixels, 640×480
pixels, 720×540 pixels, 1024×576 pixels, and 1280×720 pixels. If your
piece is 720×480 pixels with an NTSC 0.9 anamorphic pixel-aspect
ratio, please resize it to 640×480 pixels or 720×540 pixels to avoid
your film being screened wider than it should appear.

QuickTime .mov, and .mp4.
    * Valid video codecs are DivX, XviD, H.264, Sorenson, MPEG-4, and WMV.

part of the video.
