Call for Demonstrations and Posters

Poster Papers

The Poster Track provides researchers and practitioners with the opportunity of presenting their work-in-progress, obtaining precious feedback from their peers in an informal setting.

Demo Papers

Demo papers refer to something that can be shown to demonstrate a completed or ongoing research effort. We are looking for implementations of novel and interesting concepts or systems related to the main topics of EICS.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Modelling, specification and analysis of interaction and interactive systems
  • Model-based development of interactive software
  • Requirements engineering for interactive systems
  • Methods, processes, principles and/or tools for building interactive systems (e.g., design, implementation, prototyping, evaluation, verification and validation, testing)
  • Software architectures for interactive systems
  • Formal methods within interactive systems engineering
  • Certification issues of methods, tools, and processes to create interactive systems
  • Frameworks, toolkits, domain-specific languages and APIs for interactive systems
  • Languages and notations for describing user interfaces and interactions
  • Integrating engineering issues in the design process of interactive systems
  • Engineering design tools
  • Engineering evaluation tools
  • Supporting design in interactive development processes
  • Computational-Interaction Systems and Techniques
  • Interactive data-driven systems
  • Engineering interactive applications with emerging technologies (e.g., adaptive, context-aware, tangible, haptic, touch and multitouch input, voice, gestures, EEG, multimodal input, mobile and wearable systems, AI, (augmented, mixed, virtual) realities...)
  • Engineering hardware/software integration in interactive systems (e.g., fabrication and maker processes, physical computing, cyber-physical systems…)
  • Engineering interactive systems for various user categories (e.g., children, elderly, people with disabilities,…)
  • Engineering interactive systems for various application domains (e.g., health, home, entertainment, desktop, avionics, space, nuclear, civil protection, law enforcement, emergency services and calamity management...)
  • Engineering interactive systems for specific properties (user experience, usability, safety, security, dependability, …)
  • Engineering smart interactive systems (e.g. recommending, adaptive, intelligent)
  • Building Human-centred AI systems (integrating explainable AI, intelligible design, human-in-the-loop, adaptive and context-aware, interactive agents…)

Lab/Group Demos

We welcome submissions from research groups consisting of multiple demonstrations. This can mean that groups showcase multiple works spanning different themes, or multiple in-depth demonstrations on a single theme. Please contact the Demo and Poster Chairs for more details and to discuss ideas.

At the Conference

Accepted Demos and Posters will be presented during the conference in the exhibition area.

Preparing and Submitting Your Poster/Demo Submission

We ask authors to detail their envisioned setup. Presenters should provide a description of how the physical setup will look like. The organizers will provide you with a standard table, WiFi and electrical outlets. Additionally, presenters can request computer displays, and speakers.

Before the submission deadline, you must submit up to a 2-page, two column (+1 for references) poster or demo article, detailing the work, a picture depicting the work, a video demonstration, and additional information detailing the requirements for the exhibit, not anonymized. All submissions should include all author names, affiliations, and contact information.

Submissions must have the following components:

  1. Paper (due at submission)
  2. Walkthrough Video (due at submission)
  3. Still image (due at submission)
  4. Needs requirement for on-site presentation

1. Paper

The paper should be up to 2-page long in the Template (two column), including references. It should be self-contained and clearly describe the novelty and distinguishing ideas of your project, even for readers who are not able to view the related demonstration at the conference or associated videos. Your paper should include:

  • A description of the system, installation or exhibit and the problem it addresses. Where relevant, discuss the broader context and questions that your work promotes reflection upon.

Authors must make their submissions (paper & video) accessible using recommendations found in the Guide to an Accessible Submission and Guide to a Successful Video Submission. Upon acceptance, during the TAPS process, your submission will be converted to a double-column format.

2. Video

A video is the optimal medium to communicate your Interactivity demo to the reviewers and provides an archive of the work. You must submit a walkthrough video in addition to your written documentation. The video must be no longer than 3 minutes and all uploaded content (PDF(s) + image + video) must fit within the overall submission size of 250 MB. Videos must also be made accessible and properly encoded. Check the technical requirements for video content. Submitted videos will be used for review purposes. The videos may also be displayed at the Interactivity site and possibly on websites previewing EICS content. Be sure to have permission for all content, and use rights-free music tracks. Please see the following CHI 2022 examples of walkthrough videos for inspiration:

3. Still Image

You are required to upload a still image of at least 1500 x 1200 px that represents your work, and a suitable image description. The image is required for publications and conference publicity.

Demo and Poster Selection Process

Each submission will be reviewed by at least two members of the Posters and Demos Program Committee. The selection will also take into account feasibility, available space at the conference, and other relevant information. Our intention is to ensure that the Posters and Demos track is exciting, while representing a range of projects being undertaken.

Demonstrators of all accepted interactivities will be expected to perform live demos during the conference.

Submissions should not contain sensitive, private, or proprietary information that cannot be disclosed at publication time. Submissions should NOT be anonymous. However, confidentiality of submissions will be maintained during the selection process. All rejected submissions will be kept confidential in perpetuity.
