All deadlines are Anywhere on Earth Standard Time (AoE=UTC-12) at 23:59:59.
Demo papers are part of a special event organized in a dedicated time slot during the conference. Participants are given the opportunity to demonstrate their most recent progress or developments, and interact with the conference attendees in an informal way, such as a demo, mock-up, or any adapted format of their own choice. Submissions are encouraged in all areas related to the user’s quality of experience in multimedia, as advertised in the general call for QoMEX. Researchers are also encouraged to submit demo proposals that supplement their accepted regular papers and have a chance to showcase the technical aspects of their work through a demo.
Contributions must highlight the innovative side of the concept, and should be different from normal short papers in that the presentation is significantly improved by the demonstration format. Particularly, authors should address the following questions in their submission:
- What aspects of the work go beyond existing methodologies for quality of experience in multimedia?
- What is the significance of the work and how will it impact the audience? (Also please state here if this demo supplements an accepted full paper.)
- What will be shown during the demo?
Same as for short papers, the manuscript may be no longer than 3 pages, including figures and tables, plus 1 page for references (3 + 1) using the format and template found here. Submissions will be peer-reviewed in single-blind format; authors and references (e.g., to open-source repositories) should not be anonymized. Reviewers will judge the originality, significance, quality, and clarity of the proposed demonstration.
Each presentation space will include one poster board, one table, a full-HD screen and a power outlet. Please feel free to contact the demo chairs (Conor Keighrey and Irene Viola) if you have any questions regarding the demo content or setup, or if you have requests beyond the basic equipment provided.
In particular, the 2024 edition of QoMEX will solicit hybrid experience demos enabling both onsite and remote participants to test the demo in an immersive environment.
The motto of QoMEX 2024 “Towards immersive digiphysical experiences” grew out of recent advances in various realities (VR/AR/MR/XR) and the manifold telemeeting experiences during the CoVid pandemic. The latter were facing difficulties to handle situations in which physical and remote presence had to be combined, so-called hybrid meetings. This gap between the current state and future aspirations is what QoMEX 2024 aims to bridge.
We are looking for experiences (e.g. demos, prototypes, designs…) that go beyond current limitations for hybrid events and conferences, especially handling the scenarios that are difficult to address with traditional remote conference solutions: poster discussion, coffee breaks, social events, mentoring sessions… Participants attending remotely to some QoMEX 2024 events should be able to connect to your experience (with your support, if needed).
Contributions should describe the proposed experience, including:
- How the system works and which scenario / necessity it addresses.
- Describe the social and/or user experience of the system, considering both local and remote users and bystanders (non-users).
- Requirements for the local space and the remote users: which connectivity is needed? How many remote users are supported? Do they need to have specific hardware or software?
- Hints on how the Quality of your proposed Experience should be assessed and how your contribution can inspire or help the QoE community.
Manuscript submission format is the same as for regular demo papers. Reviewers will judge the originality, significance, quality, and clarity of the proposed demonstration.
Each presentation space will include one poster board, one table, a full-HD screen and a power outlet. Please feel free to contact the hybrid experiences chairs (Pablo Pérez and Jonas Svegland) if you have any questions regarding the demo content or setup, or if you have requests beyond the basic equipment provided.
Demo papers will be included in the conference proceedings as fully citable papers; they will also be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore. QoMEX 2023 requires each accepted paper to be presented by one of the authors at the conference according to the schedule published. At least one author of each accepted submission must register for and attend the conference at a non-student rate, and demonstrate the system or mock-up during the demo session. Any paper accepted into the program, but not presented on-site will be withdrawn from the official proceedings archived on IEEE Xplore.
By submitting a manuscript, the authors guarantee that it is not previously published or under review elsewhere in a substantially similar form. Furthermore, no paper which contains significant overlap with the contributions of the submission should be submitted during the review period to either a journal or a conference.
