Dear all!

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. This track at
Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces is a forum for you to demo your
cool new technologies and applications to all attendees at the
conference's main reception. Demos are a central way of communicating
your work to the community, using an interactive means. The demo
session promises to be hands-on, interactive and fun.

Important Dates:

Submission of Demo Video: September 30, 2009
Notification: October 10, 2009
ITS 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Submitted videos are for review purpose only and will not be
published.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 ITS
2009 Conference DVD and will be archived in the ACM DL. The video
submission should be no 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.
•       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 x 360 pixels, 640 x
480 pixels, 720 x 540 pixels, 1024 x 576 pixels, and 1280 x 720
pixels. If your piece is 720 x 480 pixels with an NTSC 0.9 anamorphic
pixel-aspect ratio, please resize it to 640 x 480 pixels or 720 x 540
pixels to avoid your film being screened wider than it should appear.
•       The preferred movie file frame rates are 24fps and 30fps.
•       Valid container file formats are Windows .avi,, and .mp4.
•       Valid video codecs are DivX, H.264, Sorenson, MPEG-4, and WMV.
•       Valid audio codecs are uncompressed, AAC, AC3, and MP3.
•       Total compressed file size must be at most 75 MB.
•       Make sure the Total Run Time (TRT) listed on your online
submission form is accurate.
•       If accepted, make sure the video has an ACM copyright notice
as part of the video.
•       In all cases, make sure that you take your skis with to Banff.
