We invite you to submit your proposals for demonstrations and exhibits to
be held during the 20th ACM International Conference on Multimodal
Interaction (ICMI 2018), located in Boulder, Colorado. October 16-20th,
Demonstrations and Exhibits
The ICMI 2018 Demonstrations & Exhibits session is intended to provide a
forum to showcase innovative implementations, systems and technologies
demonstrating new ideas about interactive multimodal interfaces. They can
also serve to introduce commercial products.
Proposals may be of two types: demonstrations or exhibits. The main
difference is that demonstrations include a two page paper, which will be
included in ICMI proceedings, while the exhibits only need to include a
brief outline (no more than one page; not included in ICMI proceedings). We
encourage both the submission of early research prototypes and interesting
mature systems. In addition, authors of accepted regular research papers
are invited to participate in the demonstration sessions as well.
The theme of the ICMI 2018 conference is Multi-modal Understanding of
Multi-party Interactions. Demonstrations in this area will benefit from
more exposure to visitors, and will allow visitors to interact with the
A description of the demonstration must be submitted electronically through
the main ICMI conference management system:
Demo proposals should include a description with photographs and/or screen
captures of the demonstration and, if possible, the URL of a website where
a live version or video of the proposed demo is available. Please note that
the accepted demonstration descriptions will be included in ICMI
The selection process is juried by committee, according to criteria such
as: suitability as a demo, scientific or engineering feasibility of the
proposed demo system, application, or interactivity, alignment with the
conference focus, potential to engage the audience, and overall quality and
presentation of the written proposal. Authors are encouraged to address
such criteria in their proposals (paper submission), along with preparing
the short papers mindful of the quality and rigorous scientific
expectations of an ACM publication.
The curated demo program will be selected from the submitted proposals as
well as invited demos from among regular conference papers accepted for
presentation at the conference which the committee deems suitable for
The demo and exhibit paper submissions should not be anonymous. However,
all ACM rules and guidelines related to paper submission should be followed
(e.g. plagiarism, including self-plagiarism).
Exhibit proposals should be submitted following the same guidelines,
formatting, and due dates as for demo proposals. The main difference is
that exhibits proposals should be shorter in length (up to one page) and
more suitable for very mature systems (commercial or almost commercial).
Exhibits won't have a paper published in the ICMI 2018 proceedings.
