Call for Participation » Interactive Demos

Researchers with interactive demos who would like to interact with conference attendees on a one-on-one basis are highly encouraged to submit their work. We particularly encourage submission of demos that reveal information patterns in aesthetic, provocative, and innovative ways. All interactive demos will be on display at the IEEE VisWeek venue during the poster sessions and will be included and/or documented electronically on the IEEE VisWeek 2010 Conference USB drive.

Submission instructions

Please send your Interactive Demo submission materials by email to interactive_demos@vgtc.org. See below for what to include and attach to the email.

Important Dates

Deadline: Thursday, July 1, 2010 5:00pm PDT

Information for Authors

Interactive Demo authors must submit a two-page PDF summary in the same two-column format as required for papers and posters. Authors who mainly plan to display a static, technically-oriented poster (with or without video) are encouraged to submit to one of the Posters sections instead. Clearly identify the type of your submission by including the prefix "Interactive Demo:" in the title of your summary. Please visit http://www.cs.sfu.ca/~vis/Tasks/camera.html for summary formatting guidelines.

Authors must also prepare a brief one or two paragraph description of the demo. The description must summarize your space and hardware needs and what you would require from the conference organization to make your participation a success. We also require a separate textual caption that will be printed for display with the demo. Although not required, a video of the demo (less than 10 MB) would help greatly in evaluating your contribution, as all submissions will be evaluated on practicability and feasibility of presentation as well as creative content.

At the Conference

Authors of accepted an Interactive Demo are required to bring their demo for display during the scheduled evening poster session(s), and be available for discussion at that time. Authors are required to bring their own computer hardware, e.g., laptops. Projectors and internet access may be provided by the conference organisation where needed and as resources allow. Please note that Interactive Demo submissions are for non-commercial purposes only. Information about exhibiting/demonstrating a commercial product may be found in Exhibition.

Interactive Demo Review Process

Each interactive demo submission will be read and evaluated by the Interactive Demo Chairs. Submissions will be evaluated based on whether the content is suitable for the venue and likely to be of interest to the community and to prompt discussion. Authors of an Interactive Demo that are not accepted will receive a summary review of their submitted materials from the chairs explaining the decision and providing feedback.
