As in previous years, MMSys will provide researchers, engineers, and scientist with the opportunity to showcase their research prototypes, systems, and applications to MMSys attendees. 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 attendees 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.
Submissions are encouraged in all areas related to multimedia, as advertised in the MMSys2018 general call for papers. We invite submission 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?
Papers should be between two and four pages long (in PDF format) including references, prepared in the ACM style and written in English. Authors do not need to anonymize their submission due to the inherent difficulty of doing so for source code and datasets.
We encourage demo proposals to include a short video showcasing the work. Including a video will help the committee better understand and evaluate proposals.
In addition, a separate demo requirement document (template available soon) should also be submitted that details the technical requirements of the demo. 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, please indicate them in the demo requirement document, and we will do our best to arrange them, or to provide you with suitable rental services.
