Call for Posters, Demos, and Videos

The call for posters, demos, and videos has been closed on June 2, 2013.

Posters, demos, and videos are an important part of UbiComp 2013 program. They provide researchers with an opportunity to present their latest, cutting-edge research. Posters, demos, and videos can: cover preliminary or exploratory work within the field of ubiquitous and pervasive computing; report about smaller projects or results that are still maturing towards a full paper submission; or present any other research that would encourage discussion.


The basis of UbiComp 2013 poster, demo, or video submissions is a 4-page extended abstract (including all figures and references) prepared using the UbiComp ACM Word or Latex template. Submissions must not be anonymized! Additional material is also required, as detailed below.

Extended abstracts and all additional material should be submitted to the UbiComp Online Submission System (PCS) at All accepted submissions will be included in UbiComp 2013 Adjunct Proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library. Please make sure that your submitted abstract complies with all the formatting guidelines and is ready for publication, since there will be no time to make major revisions.

Multi-presentation submission process

The UbiComp 2013 Adjunct Program continues the multimodal submission process from previous years, which encourages the submission of integrated contributions presenting a combination of posters, demos, and videos. This approach provides conference participants with more opportunities to showcase and discuss their work with other attendees. A multimodal submission also increases its chances of acceptance. If you submit your work to multiple tracks, the individual formats will be reviewed independently according to the criteria of each track. Making a combined poster, demo and video submission thus gives you three chances at acceptance!

Please note even in case of an integrated submission, exactly one extended abstract must be prepared.

Detailed Submission Instructions

All submission formats have the same dates for submission, notification of acceptance and camera-ready submission. However, they feature different submission deadlines. In case of a multi-presentation submission, the earliest deadline needs to be followed.


UbiComp 2013 poster submissions should include:

Poster submissions should not be anonymized!

UbiComp 2013 demo submissions should contain the following documents:

Demo submissions (i.e. the abstract, the description of technical requirements and envisioned interaction, and optionally a video) should be submitted electronically through the Precision Conference submission system, as detailed above. Links to online files (video, images, etc.) can also be included in the PDF submission. Other files (e.g., Powerpoint presentations, hi-res images) can also be combined with the demo supplement into a single ZIP archive.

Additional materials are for the purposes of review only and will not be published (i.e., only the abstract will be included in the UbiComp 2013 Adjunct Proceedings). Upon acceptance you will be required to install your demonstration in the conference venue and to keep it running for at least one session (subject to the final conference schedule).

Demo submissions should not be anonymized!

UbiComp 2013 welcomes the contribution of videos illustrating inspiring visions of future systems that are grounded in today's technical reality, demonstrate the practical application of research results and the functionality of ubiquitous computing systems. We also welcome contributions that visualize the outcome of research and development projects that are not directly or exclusively linked to a specific system. We encourage the submission of videos either as new material or as supplemental to paper submissions (e.g., in order to illustrate particular aspects of a system). In order to be eligible, videos should not have been previously presented in any other formal video program.

At the conference, the video program will be interleaved into the regular paper program. Video authors will have a chance to answer questions from the audience after their video is presented.

A UbiComp 2013 video submission should include:

The video should adhere to these guidelines:

Submissions (i.e., the 4-page abstract plus the video) should be submitted online through the PCS submission system as a single ZIP file that contains both the PDF and the video file.

Videos will be judged primarily on the quality of their content, the clarity of their presentation, quality of production, their interest and relevance to UbiComp. If the video is accepted, a high-quality format, suitable for DVD production, will be required for the final version. The authors will have to grant UbiComp 2013 the right to redistribute it freely, which means that it must not contain any material subject to copyright.

Video submissions should not be anonymized!

Videos from previous years can be found in the ACM Digital Library. Should you have any questions regarding potential submissions, including copyright issues, please contact the UbiComp 2013 video chairs at

We look forward to seeing you at UbiComp 2013!
