Call for Technical Demos
As in previous years, ACM Multimedia will provide demonstration sessions. 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 attendants 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.
Demonstrators will be provided with a table, 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.
Submissions are encouraged in all areas related to multimedia, as advertised in ACM MM 2014 general call for papers. All submissions will be peer-reviewed to ensure quality. Please submit 2 page demo proposals in standard ACM MM 2014 format, with the exception that the paper needs not be blind. In addition, each demo submission must contain a URL pointing to a supplementary file, either in PowerPoint format (no more than 10 slides) or in video (no more than 3 minutes, playable in VLC 1.1.12 or better) explaining to the judges:
- 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/techniques?
- What will be actually shown during the demo?
Please submit the technical demo proposal in PDF format via https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mm2014td.
Submissions will be allowed until May 19, 2014
Paper acceptance notification: July 7, 2014
Camera-ready submission deadline: August 11, 2014
