What are Demonstrations and Work In Progress papers?
The OzCHI Demonstration track is the hands-on part of the conference for showing your
work and engaging with the OzCHI attendees. Your demonstration can take the shape of a
live, interactive demo, a lab/corporate exhibition or any combination of these! Research
demonstrations will be open to general public. Hence, it must be relevant for the
scientific community and have appeal to the general public.
A Work in Progress submission reports on recent work that is producing interesting
results, but is not yet so well developed to be presented as a short or long paper.
Accepted Demo and Work in Progress papers will be included in the conference proceedings
the authors will have the opportunity to discuss their work with the conference delegates
during a special Demo and WiP session. Participants will be able to choose presenting a
WIP poster or demo on the day. Accepted papers will be available in the USB proceedings
and will be published in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series available
from the ACM Digital Library.

Accepted WiP submissions will be presented as a poster during the conference.
We will provide more information once the acceptance notifications are sent out.
Accepted Demonstrations will be presented as a live, interactive demo, a lab/corporate
exhibition,or a combination of the above.
The following additional information will be required for demonstrations:
The title of the proposed demonstration
The names of the authors
The name, telephone number and email address of the contact person
A description of your demo addressing the following points:
What makes it unique and special?
Why will it draw a general crowd?
Why will it be interesting for HCI researchers?
Provision of keywords
Information about the demonstration space:
The amount of floor or desktop space needed (length, width, height in meters)
The list of equipment you will bring (be as detailed as you can be)
Any power, socket and outlet needs
The list of equipment that you would want us to provide. Please note that beyond
general equipment and connections we cannot guarantee any equipment.
Networking requirements (ethernet, wifi, nonHTTP)
Any environment requirements (Does this demonstration require a dark environment?
Does it produce or is sensitive to a large amount of noise or light? Etc.)
Optional (but preferred): URL of your demo video
(Video in QuickTime, MPEG, or Windows Media Viewer not to exceed 50MB is recommended.
Please do NOT send your video by email.)
Anything else that you want us know about your demonstration
Both Demonstrations and Work in Progress will be rated based on their novelty and potential
appeal to the OzCHI attendees
and general public. The clarity of the proposal (having a video will help!) will help us
make this decision.
