SUI 2017 Call for Demos

October 16-17 in Brighton, United Kingdom

*** Sorry for cross-posting ***


- Demo Submissions

Submission deadline: August 11, 2017

Notification deadline: August 20, 2017

Camera-ready deadline: August 25, 2017

Early Registration: August 21, 2017

The demonstrations track of ACM Symposium on Spatial User Interaction 2017
(SUI) provides the opportunity to showcase your SUI related research in a
direct and interactive way. We seek exciting research demonstrations,
interactive experiences or commercial products from individuals,
laboratories or research groups (academic, government, or industrial) from
all areas of spatial user interaction. We are also looking for artists who
are focusing on the intersection between artistic expression and the
technological mediums enabling spatial interaction.

This is your chance to fully engage the attendees at a personal level by
letting them see and interact with your work. Demos should interest the
broad SUI community and be presentable in a conference setting. Research
Demos will be expected to run during the dedicated demo session, lunch
breaks and coffee breaks of the conference.

- Co-located demo session with ISS 2017

This year, SUI will be co-located with the ACM International Conference on
Interactive Surfaces and Spaces (ISS) in Brighton, UK. An additional joint
demo session between SUI and ISS will be organised. The joint session  will
be held during the Reception Event on Tuesday, October the 17th, at the Jurys
Inn Brighton Waterfront
<> ( During this combined
event, we are planning to invite the press in order to garner greater
publicity for the conferences and enhance the visibility of your demos!

- Specific topics of interest

This year, we have a special theme! We invite you to investigate the
metaphor of human gestures (movement, expression, emotion related, etc.) to
interfaces (visible or invisible, virtual or tangible) that result in the
construction or intervention of an action or a space.

Of course, we also welcome all kinds of exciting works! Submissions should
address one or more of the topics below. Unlisted but strongly related
topics are also welcome.

* Spatial interaction techniques

* Spatial user interface metaphors

* Spatial input devices and technology

* Interaction on spatial, stereoscopic, and 3D displays

* Evaluation methods for spatial user interaction

* Collaborative interaction in 3D space

* Design and user experience (UX) for spatial user interaction

* Applications of human spatial perception to interaction

* Adaptive and perceptual-inspired spatial user interaction

* Applications of spatial UIs, such as games, entertainment, CAD, education

* Gesture-based spatial interaction

* Tangible spatial user interaction

* Multi-touch technologies for spatial user interaction

* Desktop interfaces for spatial interaction

* Multisensory and other novel forms of spatial user interaction

- Submission Information

Demo proposal should include:


   A one-page description of the demo using the ACM SIG Proceedings
   extended abstracts format (
   This description should include information about the overall architecture
   of the system, installation, exhibit or performance, interaction with the
   audience, foreseen benefits to audience members, as well as its relevance
   and impact on the SUI community, emphasizing on the novelty and rationale.
   In addition, a short paragraph with a description of the research lab or
   creators is strongly encouraged. Please submit your extended abstract in
   camera-ready format. Note that demo submissions, unlike paper submissions,
   are not anonymous.


   Supplementary materials should include a schematic of the layout
   (showing components such as projectors/cameras) of the demo and a picture
   showing the demo in action.. Please include what equipment you will be
   bringing and other equipment/materials you are requesting, although we
   cannot guarantee any equipment will be provided.


   (Optional) A brief video of the demo in action (URL to be included in
   the proposal). The video should demonstrate how users will interact with
   the demo as well as any other relevant information about the demo. This is
   optional, but the authors are strongly encouraged to prepare their videos
   in their submissions.

Submissions should be made through the online submission system

- Presenting at the Symposium

SUI 2017 will provide basic infrastructure for the demos (space, a table,
and power). In addition, authors of accepted demonstrations will have a
time slot in the fast-forward research demonstration session to present a
slide communicating more general information about the specific demo.

Accepted demos will be included in the proceedings. At least one author
from each accepted demo will be required to register to present at the
symposium. If no author is registered by the early registration deadline,
the accepted poster will be withdrawn from the proceedings and digital
