The conference theme
The theme of ACE 2013 is “Making New Knowledge”. We especially welcome novel showcases and interactive art that relate to this year’s conference theme, inspired by John Seely Brown’s lecture on “tinkering as a mode of knowledge construction”, by the fact that making games and
toys is often even more fun than playing with them, and by the very hands-on creative approach with which ACE participants have always explored the boundaries of creative technology.
The Poster Track provides researchers with an opportunity to present
their preliminary or exploratory work, smaller projects or research
findings that are not yet suitable for a regular paper, but nonetheless
merit discussion and can benefit from presentation at a conference.
Submissions to this track should not exceed 4 pages in Springer format.
Papers can be submitted through the Easychair website (see the ACE
website for more details).
Creative Showcases and Interactive Art
The Creative Showcases and Interactive Art track is open to a large variety of submissions including, but not limited to:
-Technical demonstrations of prototype technologies of advanced
– All varieties of video and computer games
– Interactive art, new media art, and technology-based art
– Web and mobile-based computer entertainment
– Audio, visual and other sensory forms of digital interaction
Accepted works will be demonstrated to conference attendees during the
Creative Showcases and Interactive Art session.
Submissions must be in English. A submission to the Creative Showcases track consists of:
– A short document in PDF format about the technical requirements (e.g.
space, sound, light, and so on) of the demo
– A 4-page PDF document containing an extended abstract which should describe the showcase and its underlying ideas and motivation in sufficient detail necessary for a thorough evaluation of your contribution.
See Springer LNCS formatting templates and guidelines (
for the formatting requirements. There are Word and LaTeX templates linked on the template page.
Previously published, demonstrated or under submission work can be submitted, but information on prior exposure of the work must be provided in the submitted paper. Novelty is an important selection criteria for ACE Creative Showcases and Interactive Art.
Authors may include supplementary materials (such as a video or photos) with the submission, and such materials are highly encouraged if they provide evidence of the claimed contribution. Videos should not be
longer than 5 minutes long, and the total size of all submitted materials (including the PDF document) must be under 20MB. Videos should be playable by either the current Windows Media Player or Apple Quicktime player. It is preferable that your video is playable by these
standard players without requiring additional codec installations. If you require a special codec (e.g. DivX), make certain that you include instructions on how to find and install that codec.
By default, one table, two chairs, one poster board with enough space left for one A0-sized poster in portrait orientation, 220-240V 50Hz power, and internet connectivity will be available. If you have some
special requirements, please feel free to contact the Creative Showcases and Interactive Art chairs.
Participants are expected to bring the necessary equipment to the conference site with them. Demonstrations will be presented during the conference.
Please submit all materials via the conference submission system.
If you have questions, please contact the Creative Showcases and
Interactive Art chairs at demochair@ace2013.ìnfo
ACE has become the leading scientific forum for dissemination of
