Call for demos

4th International ICST Conference on Interactive Entertainment


Sponsored by ICST, Technically co-sponsored by CREATE-NET and Casa Paganini - InfoMus, Univ. of Genoa
In association with EAI

In-coop with ACM SIGCHI

Genoa, Italy, May 25-27, 2011

INTETAIN 2011 will include an amazing Demo Space where to show off the latest academic and industrial research achievements. The idea is to bring together practictioners, researchers, and attendees to experiment, discuss and collaborate on new interactive technologies for entertaiment. Specifically, we are looking for proposals from both industry and academia for interactive demos to be held during a dedicated session at the conference, and for presentations to an audience of non experts, including the visitors and tourists attending the wonderful site of the Conference of Palazzo Ducale, the heart of cultural, museal and artistic, initiatives in the city of Genoa.

Topics for demo submissions include, but are not limited to:

Demos may accompany a long or short paper, or may be submitted separately, as an extended abstract (Demo Paper) explaining the demo and showing why the demo would be a worthwhile contribution the Intetain 2011 demo session.
Kids' Intetain. During the conference special moments will be organized for bringing together kids and researchers through visits to the Demo Space. If you have an interactive project or technology that is hands-on and kid-friendly, we encourage you to present it in the Kids' Intetain. We're looking for short-duration projects that can be accomplished in five minutes or up to one hour by small groups of kids visiting The Demo space.
