Call for Demonstrations and Videos

Live demonstrations and videos form an important part of the technical conference programme. Demonstrations of both research prototypes and commercial products by those directly involved in developing the systems are welcomed. The purpose of this track is to provide the authors with the ability to demonstrate their creative designs and novel groupware developments, to describe more about their research and results to interested delegates, and to involve them in discussions about their work, exchanging ideas, providing feedback, as well as sharing work-in-progress.

Authors submitting a paper to ECSCW 2013 conference may consider submitting the same work to Demos & Videos, for example if they want to provide a demonstration for an accepted paper. Please note that a separate submission must be made.

The submissions for Demos & Videos must be related to the topics of interest of the ECSCW 2013 main research tracks ( Submissions should include a short two page paper, including all figures, references and a 50 word max. abstract. It should explicitly state the contribution and originality of the work, making it clear how it differs from significant prior work. A full literature review is not required.

All submissions should be formatted according to the ECSCW formatting instructions and submitted via EasyChair.

All submissions should be accompanied by an Exhibition Plan (in MSWord format), describing technical requirements (e.g. exceptional power (V), dimensions and footprint of exhibit (cm), lighting conditions, internet connectivity). A power strip (230V), a poster board (A1), and an ordinary table will be provided. Additional equipment must be supplied by the demonstrator unless explicitly confirmed otherwise by the organisers.

The Demos & Videos papers will be published in ECSCW 2013 Proceedings Volume 2 (previously known as the conference supplement). Volume 2 will be printed in the Aarhus University, Department of Computer Science Report Series and will be available in printed form for the conference participants as well as online.
