Video Previews are 30-second videos that can be thought of as an elevator pitch to give a glimpse of your work, and are here to help connect your work with the community at the conference and beyond. Since their introduction at CHI 2013, Video Previews have been adopted in world first class conferences such as ACM UIST and IEEE VIS. They provide the authors with a great opportunity to publicize their work to a wider audience and to attract more readers to their paper (*).
UIST 2015 will continue the use of video previews. All authors of accepted Papers and Notes are required to submit a 30 seconds video that describes their work. The Video Previews will be made available through different mediums before and during the conference to help attendees plan their daily schedules (ACM YouTube Channel, conference program application, digital proceedings). They will also be embedded on the abstract page of the ACM Digital Library.
If you have any questions, please contact the video preview chairs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(*) UIST 2014 Video Previews have a record of 150,000 views since Oct. 2014, and CHI 2015 Video Previews have about 180,000 views since April 2015 (aggregated data from the ACM YouTube Channel).
Please carefully read the following instructions and submit your Video Preview in the dedicated "Video Preview" field of your final submission at http://www.precisionconference.com/~sigchi by August 7th 2015, 17:00 PDT.
Video previews are mandatory for the following venues:
Some of the Video Previews will be used for the conference teaser. The teaser/program video preview will be released on Oct. 26th (two weeks before the conference) and the Video Previews will be released on Nov. 2nd (one week prior to the conference). If you do not want your material to be part of the teaser or to be released prior to the conference, uncheck the ‘Early Release’ checkbox on your final submission form (your video will then be released the day before the conference).
Your Video Preview material must conform to the format as described in the submission guide below. We strongly recommend you to read the detailed guidelines, which list a series of technical as well as production recommendations to help you create a compelling video preview of quality. For inspiration, you can watch the Video Previews of UIST 2014 and CHI 2015.
The following checklists have been designed to help you make sure that your material conforms to the Video Previews requirements. Please make sure that you go through every item of these lists. Detailed guidelines and advices are available by following the (i) icons.
Before submitting, we also invite you to check the compliance of your file using the Video Previews Checker
