IE2012 will accept four kinds of submissions; all accepted submissions will be included in the conference proceedings.

Regular Papers – Maximum 10 pages.
Regular papers represents mature work where the work has been rigorously evaluated. All regular papers will be peer reviewed for technical merit, significance, clarity and relevance to interactive entertainment. Accepted papers are required to give a 15-20 minute presentation at the conference.

Short Papers – Maximum 3 pages.
Short papers represent novel work in progress that may not be yet as mature as regular submissions, but still represents a significant contribution to the field. All short papers will be peer reviewed for technical merit, significance, clarity and relevance to interactive entertainment. Accepted papers are required to present a poster at the conference.

Demo Submissions – Maximum 1 page.
Technical demonstrations show innovative and original implementations to interactive entertainment. Demo papers will be reviewed by the conference chair and the program chair for significance and relevance. Demo presenters are responsible for bringing the necessary equipment to set up their own demo at the conference.

Exhibition Submissions – Maximum of 3 pages.
Exhibition papers can represent both mature and novel work related to interactive entertainment. Applicants are to submit a short write-up outlining and contextualising the work to be exhibited, including pictures. They will need provide a clear understanding of the proposed exhibited design work, its relationship with interactive entertainment supported by design argumentation. A detailed description of what and how the work needs to be exhibited should also be included. Exhibit presenters are responsible for bringing the necessary equipment to set up their own exhibit at the conference.
