Poster and Demonstrations

The Poster and Demonstration Session is an opportunity for presenting late-breaking results, ongoing research projects, and speculative or innovative work in progress. This session is an ideal platform for researchers and practitioners to present their work, engage in discussion regarding their work and receive valuable feedback. Participants are invited to submit high-quality posters and demonstrations presenting novel ideas, designs, techniques, systems, tools, evaluations, scientific investigations, methodologies, social issues or policy issues relating to any topics that may be of interest to the accessibility community. A poster is a great way to test new ideas, generate interest in a research area, or describe useful or interesting work that is not substantial enough for a full paper presentation or present late-breaking result. A demonstration is a great way to communicate inventive accessible computing and IT technologies in action.

The abstract must clearly demonstrate relevance to accessibility research. Decisions about acceptance will be based on relevance to accessibility, originality, potential significance, topicality and clarity. A detailed list of suggested topics can be found in the call for papers.

Submission Guidelines

Poster and demonstration 2-page extended abstracts should be submitted using the ACM conference format. Accepted extended abstracts will be included in the conference proceedings. For accepted posters and demonstrations, at least one author must register as the presenter by the early registration deadline to be included in the proceedings.

Your PDF file must be readable by screen readers. Please refer to the instructions on Creating an Accessible ACM Conference Paper for information on how to accomplish this. If you cannot create an accessible PDF at submission time then you will be given the option to upload a Microsoft Word version of your extended abstract (in either .doc or .docx format) in addition to your PDF. If your poster is accepted, note that the final version will need to be transformed into an accessible PDF document.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by an international panel, per the ASSETS policy on Program Committees. Writing Guidelines are available to help authors choose appropriate language for writing about technology and people with disabilities. Finally, please refer to the ACM policy on plagiarism for guidance.

Submissions (in PDF format) should be submitted by the deadline (25 June 2015, Thursday). It is important to note that these are NOT double blind submissions; the authors' names should be on the paper.
