In this category, innovative technology demos, novel forms of interaction, and also interactive artistic works can be submitted.

The following types of demos are possible:

  • Interactive systems. These can be novel hardware solutions, interaction concepts, or interesting software solutions from a wide range of application areas. The only condition is that they must be non-commercial contributions. We also welcome the submission of demonstrators that accompany a long paper submitted in the scientific program.
  • Design Artifacts. Innovative examples of digital media or interactive systems as well as interactive, multimedia, or artistic works (e.g. art installations, games).

The demo contributions will be presented in a separate demo session and are intended to encourage people to get to know each other, try them out, get inspired by them, discuss them, and generally exchange knowledge. In a preceding demo slam, presenters create audience attention for their own demo.
