ICEC 2011 : International Conference on Entertainment Computing
Conference Series : International Conference on Entertainment Computing
Call For Papers
The IFIP International Conference on Entertainment Computing explores the application of computational technology to entertainment. The conference brings together practitioners and researchers interested in the art and design of entertainment computing applications. ICEC welcomes submissions on the design, engineering, application and theory of entertainment technology. We solicit paper, poster and demonstration submissions, as well as proposals for tutorials and workshops.
Papers will be published by Springer Verlag and archived in the SpringerLink digital library. Authors of the top ten selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their submissions to the Entertainment Computing journal.

Papers must be submitted in the Springer LNCS format (see below.) Papers should be written in English and must be no longer than 12 pages (or 6 pages for short technical papers), including references, appendices, and figures. They must include title, author names, contacts and affiliations, abstract, keywords, body, and references. The abstract must be within 150 words and included in the paper. All papers will be reviewed by the ICEC 2011 program committee. Accepted papers will be divided into two categories, long presentations and short presentations.
Posters provide an interactive forum in which authors can present work to conference attendees during special poster sessions. Posters provide an opportunity to describe new work or work that is still in progress, and will be more lightly reviewed than papers.
A poster submission should be in the form of a four-page paper in Springer LNCS format, describing the research problem, contribution, and value to ICEC attendees, submitted as a PDF file. Authors may also include a video (optional). Video files should be at most three minutes long and 15MB in size. See the video guide and the general submission information for more details about preparing your submission.
Posters will be displayed on cork boards during specific sessions. We expect to be able to accommodate posters of up to 3 feet by 4 feet (portrait format), so we suggest using that size or smaller. Additional details on poster format will be made available during author notification.
Demonstrations and Interactive Installations
Peer-reviewed demonstrations show early implementations of novel, interesting, and important computing entertainment concepts or systems, or can serve to showcase commercial products not previously described in the research literature. At ICEC demonstrations also encompass interactive works of art or installations of interest to the entertainment computing community. Demonstrations should be brief, so that they can be shown repeatedly. We particularly encourage demonstrations with which attendees can interact.
A demonstration or installation submission consists of: 1) an extended abstract that should be no more than four Springer-format pages in length, 2) an accompanying video which should be at most three minutes long and 15MB in size, and 3) a supplement document with a list of a) technical requirements including electrical and connectivity needs and b) space requirements including display and footprint needs. By default, demos will have available a table and chairs and internet in a common room. By their nature, interactive installations are intended for larger, potentially public spaces. We will try to accommodate the needs of these types of installations, but please include a minimal set-up so that we know the range of requirements that we will need to accommodate. Successful demonstration/installation submissions will be contacted by the chair to confirm the availability of requested resources. Both the abstract, digital video and supplement should be submitted electronically.
Extended abstracts should be submitted through the submission web site in PDF format. All materials will be reviewed and processed electronically. The information about the work and a contact author’s email address, mailing address, and phone number must be submitted through the submission web site by the deadline. Movies or other materials can also be submitted through the submission web site. The format of movies must be AVI/QuickTime/MPEG-4 within 3 minutes, and the size of all materials must not exceed 15 megabytes. Additional material must also be received by the deadline. All submissions will be reviewed by the ICEC 2011 program committee.
Authors have to follow the guidelines described at http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0, using the Springer LNCS Word template.
