Interactive Demos are presentations / demonstrations that highlight and foster discussion of current research and development in the area of automotive user interfaces and interactive vehicular applications. We see demos as catalysts for innovation and collaboration and we encourage submissions from both industry and academia. We accept both Academic Demos and Industry Showcases under the Interactive Demo category. All accepted Interactive Demo submissions will be available in the ACM digital library.
A Demo is an exhibition of the operation or use of a device, machine, interface, process or product. Demos should foster conversations around technology, application and methodologies relevant for the AutomotiveUI community.
An Industry Showcase is a concise presentation of late-breaking findings or other types of innovative or thought-provoking industry-related work relevant for the AutomotiveUI community.
Submissions consist of one document uploaded to PCS:
Your extended abstract should be submitted by July 11, 2018 AoE to Precision Conference System as soon as possible, but no later than August 11, 2018. and be prepared according to the requirements stated above.
The extended abstract shall not contain sensitive, confidential, or proprietary information that cannot be disclosed at publication time. Confidentiality of submissions will be maintained during the review process. All rejected submissions will be kept confidential in perpetuity. All submitted materials for accepted submissions will be kept confidential until the start of the conference, with the exception of title and author information which will be published on the website prior to the conference.
The submissions will be selected using a peer review process. After the initial reviewers make their recommendation, the final decision will be made by the interactive demo chairs. Submissions are rated on two scales, overall evaluation and reviewer’s confidence. Accepted submissions will be made available in the AutomotiveUI Adjunct Proceedings, distributed by the conference (e.g., through USB sticks and on the conference website) and will appear in the ACM Digital Library. All submissions are considered confidential during the review process.
Each submission will be reviewed on the following criteria, acknowledging the early-stage nature of the work:
Interactive Demo authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection on August 4, 2018. Authors of accepted submissions will receive instructions on how to prepare and submit the publication-ready version, and details on the Interactive Demo presentation and scheduling at the conference.
At least one author must register for the conference by the early registration deadline in order for the Interactive Demo abstracts to be published.
Please arrange with the Interactive Demo Chairs that your Demo will be properly received at the venue if you are not carrying it with you. You should have received details ahead of time. Authors will be assigned a time and location to present their interactive demo to conference attendees.Equipment and Resources
Interactive Demo participants are expected to bring the necessary equipment to the conference site with them. By default, the conference will provide:
Before arrival at the conference prepare a 30-second-madness presentation of your Interactive Demo. This is an opportunity to get the plenum excited about your interactive demo and attract them to your booth. You may give a one-slide presentation, show a 30-second video, perform an act or something new. Whatever you do, you will only have 30 seconds (no exceptions).
Please prepare one Powerpoint slide, PDF page or image (bmp, jpg, png) or 30-seconds video. Information on where to upload the material will be available closer to the conference dates. All slides will be compiled into one presentation and advance automatically. The projector will display in a 16:9 layout.
Accepted Interactive Demo abstracts will be made available in the AutomotiveUI Adjunct Proceedings, distributed by the conference (e.g., through USB sticks and on the conference website) and will secure publication in the ACM Digital Library, where they will remain accessible to researchers and practitioners worldwide.
