We invite submissions that report on cutting-edge research in the broad spectrum of pervasive digital displays. We welcome submissions from large interactive structures to wearable displays; from technical advances to field studies; and from mobile display to urban visualisation. This year we want to further extend the scope of PerDis and encourage researchers to submit work around augmented, mixed and virtual reality (AR/MR/VR) head-mounted displays which are recent manifestation of pervasive display technology. The symposium on Pervasive Displays welcomes work on all areas pertaining to digital displays including, but not limited to:
- Novel technologies and new forms of pervasive displays
- Interfaces and interaction techniques
- Media façades and architecture
- Content design and information visualisation
- Research methods for pervasive displays
- Art installations
- Evaluations, case studies, deployments, and experience reports
- Audience behaviour
- Usable privacy for public displays
- System architectures and infrastructure
- Frameworks and toolkits for developing pervasive display applications
- Augmented, mixed and virtual reality head-mounted displays (HMDs)
As a targeted topic venue, Pervasive Displays offers authors the unique opportunity to present their work to a research community focused on display technologies and research questions surrounding them. In this intimate symposium setting, authors can receive feedback from leading experts and lead discussions with highly interested parties.
Please note that the information in this call pertains to submissions to the research paper track. Information about other submission tracks (posters and demos) will be provided in subsequent calls.
Submitted papers should clearly explain the research question addressed, research method and tasks, findings or results, and contributions of the work (https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2907069). Papers should provide sufficient background and related work to situate and contextualize the authors’ work within the greater body of research. Submitted papers should be a maximum of six (6) pages in length (excluding references) in the ACM SIGCHI Conference Proceedings format (https://chi2020.acm.org/authors/chi-proceedings-format/).
Submissions shall consist of original work that has not been previously published or is not concurrently under consideration for any other conference, workshop, journal, or other publication with an ISBN, ISSN or DOI number. Papers will be peer-reviewed by multiple members of a program committee consisting of experts on pervasive displays. All accepted papers will be archived in the ACM Digital Library.
Papers should be submitted as PDF files via the EasyChair Conference System (link below).
Posters, Demos, and Videos
All types of adjunct submissions should be in ACM SIGCONF format (i.e., should not use the SIGCHI Extended Abstracts format) and should not exceed 2 pages (including references). You can download the templates at this link. The zip file contains three folders (latex, overleaf, word), each for the three different submission options:
LaTeX - use the LaTeX template files contained in the "latex" folder.
Overleaf - an "ACM SIGCONF Conference Proceedings" template is already available in the Overleaf template repository. However, we invite the authors to adopt the template available in the "overleaf" folder already customized with the PerDis 2020 details.
Microsoft Word - Use the main.docx file contained in the "word" folder. Authors using MS Word might need to install the required fonts (available in the word folder), often not included in MS Word.
Submissions should clearly describe the research questions addressed, research methods and tasks, findings or results, and the contribution to the pervasive displays community. Abstracts should also provide sufficient background and related work to situate and contextualize the authors' contribution within the greater body of research. As the abstract may be viewed without the poster, demo/installation, or video, this should be written to stand alone as an independent submission. Accepted abstracts describing original work will be included in the conference proceedings and archived in the ACM Digital Library.
Submissions (and supplementary material) should not be anonymized.
Posters, demonstrations and videos should be submitted via the EasyChair Conference System. You can find track-specific submission instructions below.
Accepted posters will be displayed in a designated session, providing presenters with an opportunity to engage in discussions with other attendees around their research.
Poster authors are required to submit a research abstract (see above).
If you have questions about posters at PerDis 2020, contact the Posters Chairs.
Accepted demonstrations will be displayed in a designated session, providing presenters with an opportunity to engage in discussions with other attendees around their research. Furthermore, we plan to feature accepted demonstrations and art installations on the PerDis Website with photos and project information for potential collaborators and sponsors.
Authors are encouraged to also submit an optional short (3 minute maximum) video documenting the work. Videos should not be submitted directly - only a download link should be provided (e.g. from Youtube or Vimeo, or from the authors' website). Either you upload your video to the submission system or you provide a link to your video.
Please note, that PerDis 2020 also considers demo submissions of work which has been previously presented at another conference. However, respective abstracts will not be archived in the ACM Digital Library. Please notify the demo and video chairs if this is the case for your submission.
If you have questions about demonstrations at PerDis 2020, contact the Demos and Videos Chairs.
PerDis 2020 video track offers a possibility to showcase novel visions, reflections, and studies that are most suited for video format and fall within the focus areas of the symposium. Each video will be shown within a suitable single-track session, preceded by a short introduction from the corresponding video author, and followed by a short discussion with the audience.
A video submission consists of the video and an accompanying research abstract (see above). Submitted videos will be judged based on their focus, production quality, as well as the level of intellectual engagement with the symposium audience. Accepted videos will be made available in the ACM Digital Library after the conference.
Checklist for video submissions:
Five minutes in length. Contact the demo and video chair in advance in case you have a good reason to request exemption for the length limit.
Present video title and credits shortly in the beginning; keep your focus on your contribution.
Encoded as MP4 using the H.264 codec.
Resolution at least 720px * 480px. Submit high-resolution copy as possible.
16:9 aspect ratio. Encode your video using square pixels for the pixel aspect ratio to avoid the video looking stretched when projected to a canvas.
Videos should ideally not be submitted directly -- only a download link should be provided (e.g. from Youtube or Vimeo, or from the authors' website). Either you upload your video to the submission system or you provide a link to your video.
If you have questions about videos at PerDis 2020, contact the Demos and Videos Chairs.
