Video Posters and Demos


To help authors illustrate a theoretical, methodological or design issue that might otherwise be difficult to convey, or a research project that requires a multimedia presentation, we encourage the submission of video posters. Video posters are a great way to excite viewers’ imaginations and to help them reflect on issues that they might not be familiar with. Presentations in this format have much potential to stimulate a lively discussion among conference attendees and the ACI community more broadly.


Video poster submissions should include the following:

  • an extended abstract (up to 4 pages plus up to 1 page of references) describing the project and underpinning research; the abstract must be in the ACM SIGCHI extended abstract format:
  • the link to a 3-minute video accessible to a video repository such as YouTube or Vimeo; the video’s opening credits should include the name and year of the conference
  • a short video description (up to 250 words).


The submission portal will be opened shortly.


Submissions will be peer-reviewed and extended abstracts will be published in the ACI2017 Conference Proceedings.


Upon notification of acceptance the authors will be expected to finalise the video, based on the reviewers’ comments. Ahead of the conference, the videos will be uploaded to the ACI2017 YouTube channel.


At the conference, video poster displays may be complemented by demos. Demos that would involve animals may be considered, but must be approved by the organising committee ahead of the conference. This is to ensure that they are logistically feasible and meet The Open University’s animal ethics and welfare standards for ACI research.
