Submissions consist of a (1) video and (2) an extended abstract. Failure to submit either file will result in an automatic rejection. The required documents are:
The extended abstract must be formatted in accordance with the new single-column ACM SIGCHI format.
More details regarding the new ACM workflow for publications can be found here: https://www.acm.org/publications/taps/word-template-workflow
Any submission exceeding the word limits and/or not adhering to the template will be automatically rejected.
The submissions should not be anonymized for reviews
Videos and extended abstracts will be reviewed by the Video Chairs. Authors should not expect to receive formal feedback on their submission other than the selection decision.
Videos will be assessed by the Videos Chairs, according to two main criteria:
Original video submissions will be prioritized, but videos that have been published or released previously will also be given consideration. If a video has been published or released previously, please make clear in your submission any prior exposure your video has received.
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 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 may be published on the website prior to the conference.
Authors of accepted submissions will receive instructions on how to prepare and submit the publication-ready version, and details on the poster presentation and scheduling at the conference.
A member of the program committee and the publication chairs will check that the final versions meet the requirements for publication and if so, will finalize the acceptance. Authors are encouraged to submit their revisions earlier than the deadline, in case it is judged that the video and extended abstract do not meet the committee requirements. If the authors are unable to meet these requirements by the deadline, the videos chairs will be notified and may be required to remove the extended abstract and video from the program.
Upon acceptance, at least one author must register for the conference by the early registration deadline in order for the video and extended abstract to be published.
Authors from outside of the U.S. are urged to verify their visa requirements as early as possible (https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas.html). The AutoUI Organization, ACM and SIGCHI do not issue formal invitation letters for visas to attend ACM sponsored conferences. ACM can however issue a visa support letter. Please see our visa support section for more information.
Authors are expected to attend the conference but are not required to present their work on stage. Rather, a time and location will be assigned to the video session and the video will be showcased in a previously communicated slot.
Video submissions whose authors are not at the conference may be withdrawn from the Adjunct Proceedings and the Digital Library.
Accepted videos and extended abstracts will be made available in the AutoUI 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.
