The 6th ACM International Symposium on Pervasive Displays 2017
7-9 June, 2017
Lugano, Switzerland  

As digital displays become pervasive, they become increasingly prevalent in many areas, including advertising, art, architecture, computing, engineering, entertainment, interaction design, sociology and urban life.

Building on the success of the previous five events, we are pleased to announce the call for posters, demonstrations and arts, as well as video submissions. We invite material that reports on cutting-edge research in the broad spectrum of pervasive digital displays, from large interactive walls to wearable displays, from installations to personalised signage or mobile displays to urban visualisation. 

As a targeted topic venue, Pervasive Displays offers authors the unique opportunity to present their work to a research community focused on display technologies, and allow them to receive feedback from experts in the field in an intimate symposium setting.

The adjunct program presents an opportunity to publish late-breaking results, technical descriptions, installations, smaller research contributions, and works-in-progress in a concise format. PerDis 2017 welcomes posters, demonstrations and arts, as well as video submissions on all areas pertaining to digital displays including, but not limited to: 

- Applications 

- Content design and information visualisation

- Evaluations, case studies, deployments and experience reports 

- Interfaces and interaction techniques 

- Novel technologies and new forms of pervasive display 

- System architectures and infrastructure 

- Frameworks and toolkits for developing pervasive display applications

- Research methods for pervasive displays 

- Media facades and architecture 

- Art installations 

Submissions should consist of original work that has not been previously published or concurrently under consideration for any other conference, workshop, journal, or other publication with an ISBN, ISSN or DOI number. All material will be reviewed by an international panel of experts in the field of pervasive displays.

See for a link to the submission system.




All types of adjunct submissions should be in ACM SIGCHI format (i.e., _not_ in extended abstracts format) and should not exceed 2 pages (including references). Submissions should clearly describe the research questions addressed, research methods and tasks, findings or results, and the contribution to the pervasive displays community. Abstracts should also provide sufficient background and related work to situate and contextualize the authors' contribution within the greater body of research. As the abstract may be viewed without the poster, demo/installation, or video, this should be written to stand alone as an independent submission. Accepted abstracts will be archived in the ACM Digital Library. 

Submissions (and supplementary material) should _not_ be anonymized.  

You can find track-specific submission instructions below. 




Accepted posters will be displayed in a designated session, providing presenters with an opportunity to engage in discussions with other attendees around their research.

Poster authors are required to submit an abstract (see above) and a _draft_ poster. Draft posters should be formatted for A1 portrait (594x841mm).




Accepted demonstrations and art installations will be displayed in a designated session, providing presenters with an opportunity to engage in discussions with other attendees around their research.

Authors of demonstrators/art installations are required to submit an abstract (see above) as well as an additional installation information form:


Authors are encouraged to also submit an optional short (5 minute maximum) video documenting the work. Videos should not be submitted directly -- only a download link should be provided (e.g. from Youtube or Vimeo, or from the authors' website). 

The conference venue will feature several touch-enabled public displays -- we encourage submissions that can be displayed on this existing hardware. More information regarding the technical specification about the hardware is available on the conference website.




PerDis 2017 video track offers a possibility to showcase novel visions, reflections and studies that are most suited for video format and fall within the focus areas of the symposium. Each video will be shown within a suitable single-track session, preceded by short introduction from the corresponding video author, and followed by short discussion with the audience.

A video submission consists of the video and an accompanying two-page abstract (see above). Submitted videos will be judged based on their focus, production quality, as well as the level of intellectual engagement with the symposium audience. Accepted videos will be made available in the ACM Digital Library after the conference.

Checklist for video submissions:
- At most five minutes in length. Contact the video chair in advance in case you have a good reason to request exemption for the length limit.
- Present video title and credits shortly in the beginning; keep your focus on your contribution.
- Encoded as MP4 using the H.264 codec. No exceptions!
- Resolution at least 720px * 480px. Send as high-resolution copy as possible.
- 16:9 aspect ratio. Encode your video using square pixels for the pixel aspect ratio to avoid the video looking stretched when projected to a canvas.
- At most 100 MB in file size. Again, contact the video chair in advance if you have a good reason for submitting a video file larger that this.

Videos should not be submitted directly -- only a download link should be provided (e.g. from Youtube or Vimeo, or from the authors' website).
