Call for Demos


As in previous years, ACM Multimedia will provide demonstration sessions. Demos are intended as real, practical, and interactive proof of the presenters’ research ideas and scientific or engineering contributions, with the goal of providing multimedia researchers and practitioners with the opportunity to discuss working multimedia systems, applications, prototypes, or proof-of-concepts. Such a setting allows conference attendants to view and interact first hand with live evidence of innovative solutions and ideas in the field of multimedia and to see leading edge research at work.

Expected Contents

Submissions are encouraged in all areas related to multimedia, as advertised in ACMMM 2017 general call for papers.


Once accepted, demonstrators will be provided with a table, poster board, power outlet and wireless (shared) Internet. Demo presenters are expected to bring with themselves everything else needed for their demo, such as hardware, laptops, sensors, PCs, etc. However if you have special requests such as a larger space, special lighting conditions and so on, we will do our best to arrange them.

Submission Guidelines

The documents should be submitted through the conference submission system selecting the Demo track.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed, and the demos will be selected through a Jury process. Please submit a two pages demo proposals (excluding references) in standard ACM MM 2017 format, with the exception that the papers need not be blind. Also each demo submission must contain a supplementary file, either in PowerPoint format (no more than 10 slides) or in video (no longer than 3 minutes) explaining to the jury:

  • What is the scientific or engineering concept behind the work?
  • What is the novelty of the work and how is the work different from existing systems or techniques?
  • What will be actually shown during the demo?

In addition, a PDF file of one page description about your demo booth configuration may be provided if you have special requests. Please note that the submission system can accept only one supplementary file (Max 10MB). Therefore you have to compress multiple files into one ZIP file for submitting the supplementary materials. If the total size of your supplementary materials exceeds 10MB, please contact the demo chairs and arrange a way to submit the file.
