A message from the Demos chair
Demo submissions are for working prototypes, devices and systems that focus on the conference topics of NordiCHI´14. We seek demo submissions that illustrate novel ways of interacting with computers and information, such as novel interaction technologies, novel ways of using IT and alternative means of engaging computing in activities. Submissions relating to the conference theme ‘Fun, Fast, Foundational’ are encouraged. We welcome submissions from industry, research and design. A demo submission may feature work that has been published previously as long as this is indicated in the submission.

Demos submission content and format
We encourage submissions that: 1) demonstrate a novel interactive system; 2) demonstrate or illustrate novel use and interaction techniques; or 3) demonstrate the creation and/or testing of a prototype.

Submit a 2-4 page description of the work in ACM SIGCHI Extended Abstracts format, showing and describing implementations of novel interaction technologies, concepts or systems. The description needs to include the requirements for the demo setup.

All demos need to have a poster explaining the purpose of the demo. For the details, see the guidance for Poster submissions. The posters need to be submitted for the accepted demos by September 18.

Demos selection process
UPDATE 5.8.: It seems hard to keep the demo submissions anonymous, so we will allow unanonymous submissions. So:
The demos will be selected through a single-blind review process. The extended abstracts of accepted demos will be included in the conference proceedings and will be archived in the ACM library.
