About Demonstrations

CSCW 2020 demonstrations present implementations of new CSCW systems and
concepts. The curated demonstrations allow conference participants to view
novel and noteworthy CSCW systems in action, discuss the systems with those
who created them, and try them out. Appropriate demonstrations include
applications, technologies, and research prototypes, and may showcase work
that has been or is being published at CSCW or elsewhere. Demonstrations
can also serve to showcase novel commercial products not previously
described in the research literature.

Compelling demonstrations can include (but are not limited to) the
following areas:

* Multi-user interactions with large displays

* Hardware and tangible devices that have the potential for novel
cooperative interactions

* Augmented or immersive environments

* Novel social networking systems

* Design interventions in MOOCs or other large learning environments

* Visualizations of collaborative and social workflows

* Crowdsourcing, community-sourcing, or crowdfunding demonstrations

* Chatbot and conversational agent systems supporting multi-user scenarios

* AI-based systems as partners in collaboration with individual user,
teams, or communities

As CSCW will be virtual in 2020, demo presenters will be presenting their
demos virtually. The exact format of the demo session is still being
determined. This will likely mean some form of synchronous video conference
session where presenters can give video demonstrations to attendees, in the
case of demos that cannot be experienced by remote attendees or software
demos that attendees can try out remotely. Presenters must have been
directly involved with the development of the system and be able to explain
the unique and novel contributions of the system.

CSCW demos are non-archival. We encourage the submission of demos that were
previously shown at other venues but that will be novel to the CSCW
audience, as such demos can serve to build bridges between research
communities. Authors should state previous demo venues in their submission
and point out differences to previous demos.

All questions about Demos should be directed to [[log in to unmask]]

All demonstrations will be advertised and showcased in the conference pack
and throughout the conference. In addition, a panel of judges will select
one demonstration to receive a **Best Demo Award** during the reception.
Submission Materials

Demonstration submissions consist of two required and one optional

* A 4-page extended abstract (required) – will be published in the ACM
Digital Library and distributed to all attendees

* A video of the system in action that helps illustrate the proposed
demonstration (required, at most 2 minutes long) - will be published in the
CSCW'20 website.

The extended abstract is a description of the project goal or research
problem, contribution, and value to CSCW attendees of max. 4 pages.

**It will be published in the ACM Digital Library and distributed to all
attendees as part of the Conference Extended Abstracts**.

The extended abstract details the kind(s) of cooperative activities the
demonstration is intended to support, the noteworthy and distinguishing
ideas or approaches it embodies, a brief description of the system that
will be demoed, and a clear statement of the demo’s relevance to the CSCW
audience. The extended abstract should be submitted in PDF format. Please
submit it in the **SIGCHI Extended Abstract Format** ([Word](
 ), [Latex](

* Information about the presenter(s), including their relationship to the

* Please note if this is a demo of a system described in a CSCW paper
accepted for this year’s conference or that has appeared at a past CSCW
conference. There’s nothing wrong with this, but it’s useful for us to
know. If the system has been demonstrated before, describe if there are any
changes for the proposed CSCW demo.

* Do you plan to gather data about attendees’ interactions with the system?
If so, describe what data you plan to gather, and an example of the release
form that you would ask attendees to sign. If the demo is accepted, proof
of final IRB approval must be submitted by October 21st (if your home
institution has an IRB). CSCW can provide a "letter of cooperation" to
assist with your IRB application, if needed. If your institution does not
require IRB approval, a letter stating so from the demo presenters must be
submitted instead.

The demo submission must be supported by a short Video Figure. The video
should be at most two minutes long. A week before the CSCW conference, this
video will be uploaded to CSCW’s websites and will be accessible to the
Submission Instructions

The extended abstract, system summary, and URL for accessing the video have
to be submitted via PCS by ***July 1, 2020 5:00 pm PDT**.* Submissions
received after the deadline will not be considered. [](

Please direct all questions regarding the demo submissions to [
[log in to unmask]](mailto:[log in to unmask]). We look forward to
seeing you!
