Camera Ready Deadline

September 27, 2021, 23:39 (anywhere on earth)

We invite you to showcase your demo at the ACM Symposium on Spatial User Interaction (SUI 2021), which will be held virtually Monday, November 8th through Wednesday, November 10th (dates tentative). Demos offer you the opportunity of engaging the audience of the Symposium at a personal level, elicit feedback on your work, and discuss potential collaborations in an informal manner.

We seek exciting research demonstrations, interactive experiences or commercial products from individuals, laboratories or research groups (academic, government, or industrial) from all areas of spatial user interaction. We are also open to artists who are focusing on the intersection between artistic expression and the technological mediums enabling spatial interaction. Some authors of otherwise rejected papers will be invited to present their work as a demo.

Submission Instructions

  • Demo proposals should be prepared as a two-page abstract in the ACM SIG Proceedings format and submitted as PDF in camera-ready format. For the LaTeX version, the correct template to use is sigconf. The demo abstracts will be included in the ACM Digital Library.
  • Also, a mandatory explanatory video of the demo, as delivered in a virtual platform such as discord or zoom, should be included in the original submission. The demo video should include a view of the user (if applicable).
  • Unlike paper submissions, demo submissions are NOT anonymous and should include full names and affiliations of the authors.
  • Demos should be presentable in a form of video presentation or online live demonstration during the symposium.
  • The authors of the accepted demos must provide a 30-sec brief video of the demo in action, including audio descriptions, for the final camera-ready version. The video should demonstrate how users will interact with the demo as well as any other relevant information about the demo. This video will be used as part of a teaser to publicize the demos in a fast forward type video presentation on the website and to the symposium.
  • Submissions should be made through the online submission system: Precision Conference System.
  • At least one author of each accepted demo will be required to register to present at the symposium. The author is also required to be available during the demo session.
  • Please contact the Posters, Demos and Interaction Chairs ( for more information.
