The Second International Conference on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII 2007) invites researchers, practitioners, and industry for demonstrations to showcase both, mature systems and innovative prototypes of affective computing, and to discuss them with the broader international scientific community and the public at large. The goal for the demonstrations is to illustrate the range of applications and technical advances in the state of the art of affective computing, in particular (but not only) regarding the main conference topics.

Demos will be selected based on factors including scientific contribution, originality and innovation, social impact, engagingness, and technical requirements. Commercial products are eligible, but are required to demonstrate clearly the scientific and technical basis of their submission, as well as results of use.

Requirements for Submission

Submissions must contain the following:

  1. A two-to-five pages document providing the following information:
    1. A brief description of the demonstration set-up (up to a page);
    2. A summary of the technical content of the demonstration (up to a page);
    3. A short storyboard consisting of a set of commented images depicting important stages of a typical demonstration session (up to three pages).
    4. [optional] A URL of a currently active web-based demonstration or of a video clip. Please make sure this web site is active and accessible during the review process (until July 5, 2007).
  2. A detailed description of the technical set-up and requirements regarding the hardware and software, used modalities, space, ambience (illumination, noise sensitivity, etc.), and infrastructure (such as power supplies, network access, etc). ACII 2007 will attempt to provide necessary equipment and infrastructure, but demonstrators will be required to provide their own special-purpose equipment.

All proposals should be submitted by electronic mail to the Demo Chairs (see below) in PDF format, following the style guide for regular ACII 2007 papers available under Submission.

Important Note

Please note that by default, authors are required to show live demos of their systems. Other formats of demonstration, such as video clips or slide shows may be accepted in exceptional cases only.
