Call for Late-Breaking Papers, Demonstration and Video

Call for Late-Breaking Papers, Demonstration and Video

We invite researchers to submit and showcase their latest advances, experiences and challenges in the field of human-agent interaction as late-breaking results (to be presented as posters), demonstrations and videos.

Topics of interest are the same as research topics of HAI’18 – See the call for papers at Please consult the Program Chairs if you are uncertain whether your topic falls within the scope of the conference.

Please also note that at least one author of the work must register and be present during the session at all time. Any selected paper will be included in the proceeding of HAI’18 indexed by ACM Digital Library. An award will also be given for the demonstration and video.

Guidelines for a short paper of a late-breaking poster, video & demonstration

We require authors to submit papers describing work that is intended to be presented as a short paper (late-breaking results), demonstration or video, as follows:

  • Late-breaking Papers: 2-page submission for blind review, including title and keywords; abstract not necessary. The short paper should describe recent results. Accepted short papers will be presented as posters at the conference. It must be no longer than two pages including all text, figures and tables. Up to one additional page may be included for references only. Authors must ensure that their submissions are anonymised and no information of author’s identity can be inferred.
  • Demonstrations: Up to 2-page description of demonstration, including title, authors (not subject to blind review) and abstract (paragraph highlighting key elements of demonstration). Description should provide detail about what viewers will see and/or interact with at the conference. A URL could be provided (though not required) to help reviewers understand what the demonstration will show. Technical requirements necessary for the demonstration must be included, such as: external monitor, power supply, space (e.g., for robots), etc.
  • Video: Up to 1-page description of video, including title, authors (not subject to blind review) and abstract (paragraph highlighting key elements of video) and a URL where the video can be viewed online (e.g., youtube, vimeo, etc.) and which must be accessible to reviewers. Video submissions must be 5 minutes or less.

All submissions must be in PDF format and adhere to the ACM SIG proceedings templates (2 column format). Submitted papers must not be published nor submitted for publication elsewhere. Authors’ work with groundbreaking results and/or demonstrations of practical applications will be favoured during the selection process by the committee.
