CALL FOR DEMOS
Notice: Demo submission deadline is 23:59 (Anywhere on Earth time) of May 23, 2019
The demonstration session aims to provide the opportunity for researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, and government to interact while exploring the latest techniques for managing information and knowledge. We seek demonstrations that showcase exciting new technologies and early prototypes, as well as case studies from more mature systems with innovative features and functionalities. Demonstrations with focus on the marketing of products must be submitted to the exhibit program, rather than to the demonstration track.
The demo papers should describe the intended audience, point out the innovative aspects of the system being demonstrated, and explain how those aspects contribute to the state of the art in knowledge and information management. The submissions must also make clear what the audience will experience during the demo; authors may convey this information through a scenario, explanatory text, and/or screenshots. Submissions that are case studies should also explain the case being demonstrated. The demo papers must also include appropriate references to the literature.
Submissions must be single-blind and formatted according to the 2017 ACM Master Article Template. A demo paper must be no more than 4 pages long (including references), and must be submitted as a PDF document. Authors may include an additional page to list the practical requirements for presenting their demonstrations; this additional page will not be included in the conference proceedings. Authors may also include a URL to a 5 minute video (or an additional page of screenshots) for the proposed demo.
Submissions will be reviewed by the Demonstrations Program Committee, who will evaluate the novelty of the technical features being demonstrated, the challenges in producing such a system, its expected impact, and its timeliness and relevance for the CIKM audience of practitioners and researchers. Demo papers that describe case studies from mature systems will also be evaluated on the relevance of the system and innovative features and functionalities that are being included in the demonstration.
At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference before the final version submission deadline, and must attend the conference and present the work as scheduled in the conference program. Work that is not presented at the conference by one or more of its authors may be removed from the ACM Digital Library and may be removed from the final version of the proceedings.
