2. Short papers: 4 pages, anonymised, short presentation
3. Demonstration papers: 2 pages, anonymised, demo at the conference
4. Poster papers: 2 pages, anonymised, poster at the conference
5. Student Design Competition (details including prizes found on http://www.augmented-human.com/ah-2016-welcome/student-design-competition )

Submissions shall be made to the conference management system ( https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ah2016 ). At least 3 double-blind reviews per paper will be done. Submissions should be properly anonymized to facilitate blind reviewing: papers being submitted should not list the authors, affiliations or addresses on the first page and authors are also encouraged to take care throughout the entire document to minimise references that may reveal the identity of the authors or institution. Authors of accepted papers must be prepared to sign a copyright statement and must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. At least one co-author of an accepted paper must register to the conference and come to present the paper, allowing the inclusion of the paper in the conference proceedings. This is a requirement for the paper to be included in the ACM ICPS and digital library. No-show of scheduled papers will result in excluding them from the ACM ICPS and digital library.  

Full/Short, Poster and Demonstration accepted will be published in the ACM digital library and must follow the ACM SIG Proceedings template on this page http://www.acm.org/publications/article-templates/proceedings-template.html We encourage authors to submit supporting video material in addition to the PDF submission. Authors of all accepted papers will also be invited and encouraged to participate in the demo sessions. 10 design projects submitted by students or team of students will be selected for presentation during the conference with official signed certificates of selection and Student Design Competition awards and prizes during the conference based on public/participants votes and researchers votes.
