The demonstrations track of ACM Symposium on Spatial User Interaction 2017 (SUI) provides the opportunity to showcase your SUI related research in a direct and interactive way. We seek exciting research demonstrations, interactive experiences or commercial products from individuals, laboratories or research groups (academic, government, or industrial) from all areas of spatial user interaction. We are also looking for artists who are focusing on the intersection between artistic expression and the technological mediums enabling spatial interaction.

This is your chance to fully engage the attendees at a personal level by letting them see and interact with your work. Demos should interest the broad SUI community and be presentable in a conference setting. Research Demos will be expected to run during the dedicated demo session, lunch breaks and coffee breaks of the conference.

Co-located demo session with ISS 2017

This year, SUI will be co-located with the ACM International Conference on Interactive Surfaces and Spaces (ISS) in Brighton, UK. An additional joint demo session between SUI and ISS will be organized. This joint session will be held during the Reception Event on Tuesday, October the 17th, at the Jurys Inn Brighton Waterfront. During this combined event, we are planning to invite the press in order to garner greater publicity for the conferences and enhance the visibility of your demos!

Demo Proposals

Your demo proposal should include a one-page description of the demo using the ACM SIG Proceedings extended abstracts format and a schematic layout of the demo , showing all components required (i.e., as projectors/cameras, trackers, etc.). This description should inform about the overall architecture of the system, installation, exhibit or performance, interaction with the audience, foreseen benefits to audience members, as well as its relevance and impact on the SUI community, emphasizing on the novelty and rationale. In addition, a short paragraph with a description of the research lab or creators is strongly encouraged.

Submission Instructions

  • Unlike paper submissions, demo submissions are not anonymous. Thus, be sure to include the names and affiliations of all authors.

  • Extended abstracts should be prepared as a one-page manuscript in the ACM SIG Proceedings format. Please submit your paper using the sigconf template in Latex.

  • Supplementary materials should include a schematic of the layout (showing components such as projectors/cameras) of the demo and a picture showing the demo in action. Please include what equipment you will be bringing and other equipment/materials you are requesting, although we cannot guarantee any equipment will be provided.

  • SUI 2017 uses the new version of the Precision Conference System.

  • (Optional) A brief video (up to 3 minutes long) of the demo in action. The video should demonstrate how users will interact with the demo as well as any other relevant information about the demo. This is optional, but the authors are strongly encouraged to prepare their videos in their submissions.

  • Submissions should address one or more of the topics above within spatial user interaction. Unlisted but strongly related topics are also welcome.

Demo Setup and Presentation

  • SUI 2017 will provide basic infrastructure for the demos (space, a table, and power).

  • Authors of accepted demonstrations will have a time slot in the fast-forward research demonstration session to present a slide communicating more general information about the specific demo.

  • Please note that at least one author of each accepted demo will be required to register at the symposium. The author is also required to be available during the demo sessions session.

Fast Forward Research Demonstration Session

More information about the Fast Forward Research Demonstration Session will be available soon.
