Posters and Demos
Posters and demos are an opportunity to present late-breaking results, prototypes not yet validated through user studies, student research in early phases, and other research best presented in this open format. They are an excellent opportunity to discuss and reflect your work with conferences attendees. Posters and demos will be displayed at a dedicated session in the conference when poster and demo authors will be available discuss and demonstrate their work.
Posters depict experiences, methods, or conceptual prototypes which can trigger reflection and discussion among conference attendees. Submissions can be about - but are not limited to - community engagement or civic participation experiences; design methods that enable collaboration; or conceptual prototypes designed to support collaborative practices.
Demos can be platforms, hands-on methods, or devices which allow participants to reflect and interact with them. Submissions can be about - but are not limited to - digital platforms that support collective action; hands-on methods aimed to design for collaboration that can be tried out at the conference; or interactive installations/artefacts that emphasize collaboration or collective making. Demos can be static or itinerant. Interactions can be visual, tactile, sound-based.
Posters and Demos submission information
Submissions should include an extended abstract no longer than 4 pages, including all figures and references, in the ACM CHI Extended Abstract Format (available here). In addition, demo authors should submit the requirements in a separate text (.doc) document (e.g. What do you need to run your demo? What are the technical requirements? What are the space/logistic requirements?). If your demo does not need any specific requirements, please let us know in the email with the submission.
The extended abstract should include author names and affiliations - these are not anonymous submissions. You need to bring your printed poster in the standard A0 size to the conference. Either portrait or landscape orientation should be fine. Easels and office supplies needed to hang the posters will be provided at the conference. If you have any additional requirements, please contact the poster and demo chairs in good time before the conference. Selected demos and posters will be included in the conference proceedings and archived in the ACM Digital Library.
Please send submissions directly to co-chairs at [email protected]
Posters and Demos selection process:
Contributions will be selected through single-blind peer review. Our review process will emphasize feasibility, quality, originality, and the capability to generate discussion (posters) and bring people together in a collective action (demos). We encourage submissions which allow people to engage with the posters and demos during the conference in a collective manner.
Some topics of interest may be (but not restricted to):
- Civic participation
- Collaborative prototyping
- Collaborative work in organizations
- Digital fabrication
- Critical/speculative design
- Gender issues
- Open-hardware movements
- Grassroots communities
- Social media and online communities
- Ethical and social implications of computing
Submission deadline: October 4th 2019
Notification of acceptance: October 16th 2019
Final versions of camera-ready papers: October 25th 2019
