Demos are one of the most exciting parts of ACM TVX conferences. As in previous years, ACM TVX 2016 will offer dedicated demo spaces to companies and academia research labs alike. Demos are intended as real, practical, and interactive proof of the presenters’ research ideas and scientific or engineering contributions, with the goal of providing TVX researchers and practitioners with the opportunity to discuss working interactive TV systems, applications, prototypes, or proof-of-concepts. The layout of the demo area will be designed to appeal to our audience of researchers and practitioners.



Submissions are encouraged in all areas related to interactive TV experiences, as advertised in the ACM TVX 2016 general call for papers. We invite submission of non-anonymized 2-page papers in SIGCHI format , describing the research and what will be shown during the demonstration. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and selection will be based on the novelty of the research and interestingness of the demonstration. Please consider the following questions in your submission:


  • 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?


We strongly encourage authors to provide a demo video, which will be included in the digital version of the adjunct proceedings. The following video demonstrates how you can make a great submission video for you demo:

In addition, a separate document should also be submitted that details the technical requirements of the demo. Please fill in these details in the Demo Rider document and upload it through the PCS submission system together with your submission. 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.



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, large displays and so on, we will do our best to arrange them, or to provide you with suitable rental services.



  • Submission deadline: April 18, 2016
  • Acceptance notification: April 25, 2016
  • Camera ready deadline: May 20, 2016


Demos will take place during the main conference program of 23-24, June. The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of the conference. Note that the official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
