Submissions must be as short papers and demos (optional) of Work-in-Progress.
Short papers should contain between 2 and 4 pages and present proposals with initial results.
All submissions should follow the ACM guidelines.
Ensure you use the latest version of the templates available from the ACM.
Additionally, authors are invited to submit a demo (video up to 3 minutes in format .mp4) related to their proposal.
This video is optional and it will be additional material to evaluate the short paper.
Demo video can be sent using this form.
Submissions should be made by easychair system.
There will be two awards: best short paper and best video demo.
Accepted and presented works were published at Digital Open Library of the Brazilian Computing Society (in an open access base).
Submission of a work in this workshop does not cancel the opportunity of submit a full paper in the IMX main track.
