Regular paper, music, demo and workshop contributions must be submitted via the EasyChair Audio Mostly 2017 submission portal. Please read carefully the instructions related to your contribution below before submitting.
At least one author will need to be registered and attend the conference for publication and presentation of an accepted contribution. Conference registration will be made available on the Audio Mostly website in due course.
General Instructions for Papers
All Audio Mostly 2017 papers should be submitted using the 2017 ACM Master Article Template specified below for your contribution. Authors should use the ACM Computing Classification System (CCS) to provide the proper indexing information in their papers (see instructions on the 2017 ACM Master Article Template page). All papers must be submitted in the PDF format.
If you use LaTeX, please note that you may have to update your TeX distribution (e.g. TeXLive, MikTeX) and the acmart package to be able to compile using the 2017 ACM Master Article LaTeX Templates.
The length of abstracts in papers (regular, demo or workshop position papers) should be 150-200 words.
Regular Papers (Oral/Poster Presentation)
Audio Mostly 2017 regular papers can be of the following nature:
We let authors choose the most appropriate length for their contribution amongst the two following formats:
Upon paper submission, authors will have the possibility to give their preferences for oral or poster presentations. The final mode of presentation (oral/poster) will be based on the review process and program constraints, and will be communicated to the authors upon acceptance.
Regular papers will be subject to single blind peer-review by at least two reviewers and included in the conference proceedings.
We encourage authors of regular papers to also consider their work for the Demo track, wherever relevant (see Call for Demos and guidelines below).
Regular papers deadline
The deadline for regular papers is indicated in the Important Dates section of the website.
Special Session Papers
Authors of special session papers must follow the instructions given for regular papers (see above). You will have to indicate the special session your paper relates on the conference submission portal. Paper special sessions are described in the Paper special sessions section of the website.
Special session papers deadline
The deadline for Special session papers is indicated in the Important Dates section of the website.
Demonstration (demo) papers must be up to 5 pages long in the single column SIG CHI Extended Abstracts Format (LaTeX template: sample-sigchi-a.tex; Word template: SigChi-a.docx). We encourage authors of demonstrations to also submit a regular paper (see Call for Papers and guidelines above).
Demo papers should clearly pinpoint the novelty and characteristics of the project, even for readers who are not able to attend the demonstration at the conference. The papers should include:
Requirements for the demonstration must also be submitted as supplementary material in the PDF format. The requirements must indicate:
The supplementary demo PDF material is for the purpose of review and planning only and will not be published. If you would like to provide audio and/or videos that can help us understand the scope of your demo, please include links to them in your supplementary demo PDF material and/or demo paper.
We will be able to provide basic equipment (e.g. tables, chairs, power sockets, WiFi connection) and we will try to meet any additional requests, subject to equipment and space availability. However, authors are expected to provide for their own specific material (e.g. loudspeakers, screens, projectors, sound boards). Also, coherently with the number and type of demos as well as the final configuration of the space, please note that we might need to adapt your proposed set-up to meet the restrictions imposed by the space and the circumstances. For instance, we might need to reduce the space available for your demo and to require the use of headphones.
Selection of demos will be curated by the Demonstration and Program Chairs. Authors of demos will have to specify upon submission whether they wish to have their paper considered for inclusion in the main conference proceedings. Demo papers to be considered for inclusion in the main proceedings will be subjected to peer-review. It will be possible to present an accepted demonstration without having the paper peer-reviewed but the paper will not be part of the conference main proceedings. By leaving the peer-review process optional, we aim to accommodate the needs of different types of authors (e.g. academics, practitioners, industrials).
Demonstration contributions deadline
The deadline for Demo papers and requirements is indicated in the Important Dates section of the website.
Workshop Proposals and Position Papers
Workshop proposal (compulsory)
Hands-on/interactive and regular workshop proposals for Audio Mostly should include the information below in a single PDF document. The document must be up to 6 pages long in the single column SIG CHI Extended Abstracts Format (LaTeX template: sample-sigchi-a.tex; Word template: SigChi-a.docx).
Position paper accompanying workshop proposal (optional)
To complement workshop proposals, we strongly encourage workshop organisers to submit a position paper discussing topics addressed by the workshop. Contrary to workshop proposals, position papers will be peer-reviewed for inclusion in the conference proceedings. This is optional and must be provided as supplementary material, not in lieu of the workshop proposal which contains logistics information (see instructions above). There can be some overlap in content between a workshop proposal and a workshop position paper, but workshop position papers should not report aspects related to structure and logistics. Rather they should discuss the research topics and issues underlying the proposed workshop.
Position papers accompanying workshop proposals must be up to 5 pages long in the single column SIG CHI Extended Abstracts Format (LaTeX template: sample-sigchi-a.tex; Word template: SigChi-a.docx).
Position papers accompanying workshop proposals will be peer-reviewed. The outcome of the review process won’t affect the selection of workshops (a workshop can be accepted but the associated position paper rejected).
Workshop selection criteria
All workshop proposal submissions will be curated by the Audio Mostly Workshop and Program Chairs. The selection of workshop will be based on the workshop proposal (not the optional position paper) using the following criteria:
Accepted workshop proposals will not be part of the Audio Mostly main proceedings. Accepted position papers accompanying workshop proposals will be part of the Audio Mostly main proceedings.
For workshops soliciting papers, the paper review process must be handled by the workshop organisers. The use of the Audio Mostly 2017 conference management system can be discussed with the Audio Mostly chairs upon acceptance. Papers submitted to workshops will not be part of the Audio Mostly main proceedings.
Both Audio Mostly and the workshop organisers will be responsible for publicising accepted workshop and for soliciting potential participants. Upon acceptance, workshop organisers will be required to create and maintain a web page with workshop specific information and a link to the Audio Mostly website. Audio Mostly will place a link to the workshop’s web page on its website. Workshop organisers may solicit participants for their workshop through an Audio Mostly Workshop Call for Participation (e.g. if the workshop solicit papers).
Workshop contributions deadline
The deadline for Workshop contributions is indicated in the Important Dates section of the website.
