Call for demos

Our primary goals

To provide a platform for undergraduate students to share and exchange their inspiring ideas between theory and practice.

To showcase the applicability of AI technologies improving and revolutionising the current world.

We invite innovative demo submissions that encompass AI and its applications by students from both pre-university and undergraduate globally. Submissions can be in the form of demos. If your submission is accepted, you will be invited to present your ideas during the conference and stand a chance to win awards. 

Submission instructions

Submissions will be made through Microsoft Forms. Click on the SUBMIT DEMO button below to access the submission website.

Please submit a two-page demo/video proposal (excluding references) in standard ACM MM 2021 format, with the exception that the papers need not be blind. Also each demo/video submission must contain a supplementary file, either in PowerPoint format (no more than 10 slides) or in video (no longer than 3 minutes) explaining:

  • What is the scientific or engineering concept behind the work?
  • What is the novelty of the work and how is the work different from existing systems or techniques?
  • What will be actually shown during the demo?

In addition, a PDF file of one-page description about your demo booth configuration may be provided if you have special requests. Please upload the PDF file into a cloud drive (Google Drive preferred) and include the URL in the submission form.

For video submission, a URL linking to a demonstration video no more than 10 minutes in length has to be provided. This demo video may include a screencast presentation with a voice-over.

Submitted papers may be 4 to 6 pages long. Up to two additional pages may be added for references, and they must contain only references. Overlength papers will be rejected without review.

Paper submissions must conform with the “double-blind” review policy. This means that the authors should not know the names of the reviewers of their papers, and reviewers should not know the names of the authors. Please prepare your paper in a way that preserves anonymity of the authors.

  • Do not put the authors’ names under the title.
  • Only include authors’ names in the EasyChair form.
  • Avoid using phrases such as “our previous work” when referring to earlier publications by the authors.
  • Remove information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgments (e.g., co-workers and grant IDs).
  • Check supplemental material (e.g., titles in the video clips, or supplementary documents) for information that may identify the authors’ identities.
  • Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors.

Papers without appropriate blinding will be rejected without review.

Papers submitted to STCAI must be the original work of the authors. They must not be simultaneously under review elsewhere. The authors’ prior work must be cited appropriately.

Authors will retain their rights as the copyright holder for their submissions. They can choose whether or not to publish their accepted papers/demos on the STCAI website.

Submit your demo

As a general conference on AI, STCAI welcomes submissions across all areas of AI technology. We encourage all submissions that describe innovative, high-quality AI research addressing real-world problems.
