AVI 2014 –  International Working Conference  on Advanced Visual  Interfaces
May 27-30, 2014 - Como, Italy


AVI 2014 (the  12th International Conference  on Advanced Visual  Interfaces) is
inviting submissions of posters, demos, and industrial presentations.

AVI 2014 will be  held in Como (Italy)  at the campus of  Politecnico di Milano,
from May 27th to 30th, 2014. Started in 1992 in Rome, AVI has become a  biannual
appointment for a wide International community of experts with a broad range  of
backgrounds, who share the  interest in the investigation,  design, development,
and  evaluation  of  innovative interactive  solutions  impacting  our world  at
individual and societal level. Through more than two decades, the Conference has
contributed to the progress of  Human-Computer Interaction, offering a forum  to
present and disseminate new technological results, new paradigms and new visions
for interaction  and interfaces.  AVI 2014  offers a  wide variety of submission
types to suit  many types of  interests and works.  They include full  and short
research  papers,  posters,   demos,  industry  presentations,   and  workshops.
Theoretical  and   formal  approaches,   novel  methodologies,   domain-specific
applications,  empirical studies,  new technological  solutions, and  industrial
achievements fit  well into  the framework  of the  conference. The program also
includes  a number  of prestigious  invited talks  as well  social events  at  a
magnificent villa on the Como lake.

Submission:                 March 10,  2014
Acceptance Notification:    March 21, 2014
Camera Ready due:           April 2, 2014

All  submission  must  be  formatted   according  to  the  ACM   SIGCHI   format and submitted online
on EasyChair:


The  AVI     2014   Poster   Track    provides    researchers  and practitioners
with   the   opportunity     for    presenting      their    work-in  -progress,
obtaining  precious  feedback from  their peers,  in  an  informal setting.  The
poster  session  provides conference  attendees the   chance of   being aware of
novel    and on-going  research  projects,   whose   preliminary    results are
already   interesting.

Poster  submissions must  be up  to 2  pages (not  anonymized). Accepted  poster
papers  will appear  in the  conference proceedings  and will  be published   in
ACM  Digital Library. Poster authors are required to register for the conference
and to bring a poster to be displayed in a  dedicated poster area; they are also
required  to attend  the  dedicated poster   session (see  preliminary  program)
and to present their work there.


A    “Demo”  for   AVI2014   is   something  that    can  be   shown    in order
to  demonstrate    a   completed  or    on-going   research   effort.   We   are
looking for (prototypical  or full)  implementations of  novel and   interesting
concepts  or systems related to the  main topics of AVI. Demonstrations will  be
presented in  a dedicated   session  (in  parallel  with   the poster  session).
Demonstrators are required to bring  their own equipment (since organizers  will
only provide a desk and  standard electrical  connection).

Demo proposals  (not anonymized)  must include a description of  the demo (up to
2 pages) and a  separate page shortly describing  the  equipment used  and   the
space  requirements  or other   special requirements (if  any).   Accepted  demo
presentations  will be  included in  the Adjunct Proceedings of the  Conference.
Demo presenters  authors are  required  to  register for  the conference  and to
bring the necessary equipment; they  are  also required to attend  the dedicated
demo session (see preliminary program)  and to present their demo there.


The    industrial  track   represents   an    opportunity for   companies    to
present  their    late    works    (as   short    presentations,  posters     or
interactive   demos)  and  to  receive   valuable  feedback   from the  research
community.   It   also   provides    an   opportunity   for   recruitment    and

Submissions consist of   1-2 pages  expression  of  interest. The   following is
the  suggested  content:   a   short  presentation   of   the   company   and  a
description  of  the  contribution (talk,  poster,  or  demo) highlighting   its
relevance  for the  AVI community. Proposals for the industry track will not  be
peer-reviewed  but   their relevance  will  be judged  by   a jury  of  experts.
Accepted  industry presentations will be included in the Adjunct Proceedings.
