 UbiComp/ISWC 2015 -- Call for Demos
 September 7-11, 2015, Osaka, Japan

Demos are an important part of UbiComp 2015 program. They provide
researchers with an opportunity to present their latest, cutting-edge
research. Demos can cover preliminary or exploratory work within the
field of ubiquitous and pervasive computing, report about smaller
projects or results that are still maturing towards a full paper
submission, or present any other research that would encourage

**Deadlines (updated)**
- June 5, 2015: Submission of demo proposal video and/or 1-2 page
abstract (Extended)
- June 26, 2015: Notification of acceptance (Changed)

** CFP/Process **

[ What are Demos at Ubicomp/ISWC? ]

Demos are an integral part of the Ubicomp/ISWC conference. It is an
opportunity for you to showcase your early implementations, prototypes
work in-progress systems and even commercial products not previously
described in the research literature to a broad audience. It is your
chance to engage the attendees and media representatives at a personal
level and let them see, touch and experience the future of Ubicomp and
ISWC. Whether you are coming with new what-if scenarios, developing
new technologies or using existing ones in novel ways, your
submissions are welcome.

Demos should be brief and repeatable so that it can be efficiently
shown repeatedly to a large number of attendees. We particularly
encourage demos that people can interact with, have physical sensors
or artifacts and in general keep the audience engaged.

The demo track is a "curated" track. In a curated track, content is
highly selective but does not necessarily follow a reviewing process
by a committee. Curated content will be selected from submissions by
the demo chairs and a small number of domain experts. Authors who
submit to curated tracks should not expect to receive formal feedback
on their submission other than the selection decision.

[ Submission Guidelines ]

Note: It is OK to submit demos of research work that has been
published elsewhere, however this should be explicitly made clear in
the submission. In particular, we encourage demo submissions from
authors of accepted Notes and Papers to complement their research
publication at the conference. This allows attendees to get a hands-on
experience of your innovation in addition to the technical
presentation. Demo submissions should be submitted electronically
through the UbiComp Online Submission System (PCS) ( ).

The submission process is 2-step:

Step-1: Your demo submission begins with a submission of a short video
or a 1-2 page abstract explaining the demo that you propose to present
at Ubicomp/ISWC. The video should be 1-4 minutes in length and must
clearly explain the demo concept. The primary purpose of the video or
the short abstract is to communicate to the demo selection committee
what the demo is about and whether it is a relevant fit for the
Ubicomp/ISWC community. You may even supplement the 1-2 page abstract
with a short video. If you choose to submit a video, please note that
your video must show a working version of the system (software or
hardware). Similarly, the 1-2 page abstract should convince the reader
that the system works (pictures are highly encouraged). We understand
that for many research prototypes, it may not always be feasible to
demo the entire system (for example a system that requires sensors to
be deployed throughout a home). In such instances, we encourage you to
limit the scope of the system for the purposes of the demo and
communicate clearly in the video or the abstract document how the
demonstrated system is a small scale version of the overall

Please note that the video can be of informal quality (it just needs
to show the concept) as it will only be used for selection process and
will NOT be archived and/or published publicly, unless you submit a
video as part of the camera ready.

Finally, as part of the first step, please also include the Demo
Supplement Document containing a description of attendees’
interactions with the demo and technical requirements of the demo.

Step-2 (if your entry is accepted): If your proposed demo is accepted
based on "Step 1" above, we require that you submit a 4-page extended
abstract (see section Demo/Poster abstract). All accepted submissions
will be included in UbiComp/ISWC 2015 Adjunct Proceedings and in the
ACM Digital Library.
