Demonstrations - Demo Night 

The demonstrations will give you the opportunity to present your prototypes to the audience of the IHM'22 conference during a dedicated "demo night" event. This session offers you the opportunity to:  

  • make the IHM'22 audience experience directly your work, which is often the best way to communicate on your ideas; 
  • receive a feedback on your work from the IHM'22 audience, who are experts in the field (around 100-150 attendees each year); 
  • initiate collaborations with national and international researchers; 
  • communicate on your work to medias and research institutions; 
  • offer conference attendees to take part in some user experiments; 
  • win the IHM'22 "best demonstration award", voted by the IHM'22 attendees during the "demo night". 

    Call for participation 

    IHM'22 offers a specific call for participation dedicated to demonstrations, in which we encourage innovative submissions within the following domains (non-exhaustive list):  

    • interaction techniques; 
    • tools for HCI (analysis, design, prototyping, etc.); 
    • software and hardware for HCI; 
    • applications (home, school, museum, game, office, etc.). 

      Submissions on the theme of IHM’22 “Artificial Intelligence” are particularly encouraged. 

      The program committee of IHM'22 may also invite authors of other tracks (articles, WiP, etc.) to present a demonstration without additional submission (except for the technical appendix).  

      Instructions to authors 

      Submissions should be in the form of a 1 to 2 pages non-anonymous article. They must be accompanied with a technical appendix in a separate document.  

      The article should present the scientific goals of the work that originated the demonstration as well as the main functionalities presented during the demo.  

      The technical appendix has no imposed format and should concisely describe the envisioned demonstration scenario as well as the specific material needs (each demonstration booth will have one table, one electric socket, and a WiFi internet access; if the demonstration requires other apparatus, it has to be specified in the technical appendix, the organizers will try to fulfill the requirements insofar as possible).  

      To ease the submissions management, the name of the submitted files must respect the following format:  

      • for the article: DemoIHM2022-Article-Lastname_of_the_first_author.pdf 
      • for the technical appendix: DemoIHM2022-Annexe-Lastname_of_the_first_author.pdf 


        Submissions should follow the non-anonymous Proceedings format (1 to 2 pages):  

        Submission procedure 

        The submissions must be sent via email to 

        Selection process 

        Submissions will be evaluated by the demo chairs, assisted by additional reviewers if necessary. 

        Procedure for submitting the final version

        Final versions should follow the above-mentioned NON-anonymous Proceedings format, in its double-column version. They should not exceed two pages, excluding references.

        A single PDF file with the paper modified according to the comments provided to the authors must be returned to by March 11. The technical appendix should not be attached to or incorporated into the article.

        Publication in proceedings 

        Articles accompanying the accepted demonstrations will be included in the adjunct proceedings of the conference available on HAL
