Call for Demo Papers
====================
As in previous years, MMSys will provide researchers, engineers, and 
scientist with the opportunity to showcase their research prototypes, 
systems, and applications to MMSys attendees. Demos are intended as 
real, practical, and interactive proof of the presenters’ research ideas 
and scientific or engineering contributions, with the goal of providing 
multimedia researchers and practitioners with the opportunity to discuss 
working multimedia systems, applications, prototypes, or 
proof-of-concepts. Such a setting allows conference attendees to view 
and interact first hand with live evidence of innovative solutions and 
ideas in the field of multimedia and to see leading edge research at work.

Submissions are encouraged in all areas related to multimedia, as 
advertised in the MMSys2018 general call for papers. We invite 
submission describing the research and what will be shown during the 
demonstration. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and selection will 
be based on the novelty of the research and interestingness of the 
demonstration. Please consider the following questions in your submission:

- What is the scientific or engineering concept behind the work?
- What is the novelty of the work and how is the work different from 
existing systems or techniques?
- What will be actually shown during the demo?

Papers should be between two and four pages long (in PDF format) 
including references, prepared in the ACM style and written in English. 
Authors do not need to anonymize their submission due to the inherent 
difficulty of doing so for source code and datasets.

We encourage demo proposals to include a short video showcasing the 
work. Including a video will help the committee better understand and 
evaluate proposals.

In addition, a separate demo requirement document should also be 
submitted that details the technical requirements of the demo. Please 
note that the submission system can accept only one supplementary file 
(Max. 10MB). Therefore you have to compress multiple files into one ZIP 
file for submitting the supplementary materials. If the total size of 
your supplementary materials exceeds 10MB, please contact the demo 
chairs and arrange a way to submit the file.

Once accepted, demonstrators will be provided with a table, poster 
board, power outlet and wireless (shared) Internet. Demo presenters are 
expected to bring with themselves everything else needed for their demo, 
such as hardware, laptops, sensors, PCs, etc. However if you have 
special requests such as a larger space, special lighting conditions, 
large displays and so on, please indicate them in the demo requirement 
document, and we will do our best to arrange them, or to provide you 
with suitable rental services.
