ACM UbiComp & ISWC 2018
8-12 October 2018 Singapore

Demos are an important part of UbiComp / ISWC 2018 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 wearable computing, report about smaller 
projects or results that are still maturing towards a full paper 
submission, or present any other research that would encourage discussion.

## Already published in the past?
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.

## Planning to publish in future?
All accepted submissions will be included in UbiComp 2018 Adjunct 
Proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library. These are not considered to 
be archival publications; presentation in this venue should not affect 
the ability for researchers to subsequently publish this work in an 
archival forum as a conference/journal paper.

All demos will be considered for the best demo award. An independent 
review committee will select the winner at the conference.

# Demo Deadlines
*- July 14, 2018: Submission deadline****(Extended)*
- July 27, 2018: Notification of acceptance
- August 10, 2018: Camera ready extended abstract deadline

# What Role Do Demos Play At UbiComp?
Demos are an integral part of the UbiComp conference. It is an 
opportunity for you to showcase your early implementations, prototypes 
work in-progress systems and even commercial products 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. 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.

# What To Submit
Your demo submission begins with a submission of a short video OR a 2 
page abstract in SIGCHI Extended Abstracts template explaining your 
proposed  demonstration scenario.

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 community.

If you choose to submit a video, please note that your video must show a 
working version of the system (software or hardware). If you choose to 
submit 2 page abstract, it should convince the reader that the system 
works (pictures are highly encouraged). (You can even supplement your 2 
page abstract with a short video, i.e. submit both an abstract and a video.)

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 innovation.

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. Note that the 
conference will at minimum provide you with a space for your demo, 
including a table, chairs, and a power connection (230V 50Hz). 
Participants should bring any special equipment or devices such as power 
converters, projectors or audio amplification.

# Extended abstract for accepted authors
If your proposed demo is accepted, we require that you submit a 4-page 
extended abstract prepared using the SIGCHI Extended Abstracts template, 
by the camera-ready deadline.

- LaTeX:

# How To Submit
Demos should be submitted electronically through the UbiComp Online 
Submission System (PCS) ( ). Please select 
“SIGCHI” as Society, “Ubicomp 2018” as Conference/Journal and “Ubicomp 
2018 Posters, Demos and Videos” as the  track in the submission page.

If you are submitting a 2 page abstract, please format your abstract 
title as “Demo: Title of the abstract”, so that it is recognized as a 
demo submission.  If you are submitting a video, upload it as a 
supplement file at the submission portal.

The review process will be single blind. Submissions must *NOT* be 
anonymized! For a video submission, author names and affiliations must 
be mentioned in the Demo Supplement Document.
