From ITS 2010

Main: Demos


The ITS demo session provides an interactive forum for authors to present their work to conference attendees and receive feedback from the leading experts in interactive surface research. Demos provide an opportunity to interactively present research prototypes and work-in-progress as well as your best demos of the last year. Both independent demonstrations and those accompanying accepted papers and posters are welcome. At the conference, we want the ITS participants to literally get in touch with your demos. Our main goal is to provide a forum for lively discussion and hands-on experience.

Your submission will be reviewed with regard to its relevance, potential interest to the ITS participants, novelty as well as feasibility (in terms of space and technical requirements). Unlike with archival paper submissions, these criteria and the overall number of demo submissions need to be balanced by the demo chairs.

ITS demo videos and abstracts are a refereed but non-archival publication venue. Demo videos are not be considered to be formal publications and so should not limit use of the material in future publications about the same work. However, they will be included in the ACM Digital Library so other researchers are able to find, read, and cite them. They are similar to CHI Work-in-Progress poster abstracts.

We are looking forward to your exciting demo submissions and to get in touch with them during ACM ITS 2010 in Saarbrücken! If you have any further questions regarding your submission, don't hesitate to contact us via .
