IE2013 will accept four kinds of submissions; all accepted submissions will be included in the conference proceedings.

Regular Papers – Recommended length: 7-10 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 – Recommended length: 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.

Panel Submissions – Recommended length: 1 page
Submit an abstract of 600-800 words (plus references) for review via double-blind peer-review process. Please submit the abstract on one page in PDF format. Panel submissions do not need to use the IE version of the official ACM proceedings format.

Demo Submissions – Recommended length: 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 – Recommended length: 1 page.
These submissions are for work which will be exhibited in the conference’s dedicated space. Applicants are to submit a short write-up outlining and contextualising the work to be exhibited, including pictures. They will need to 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.

All submissions except for the panel submissions must be in PDF format, formatted according to the IE version of the official ACM proceedings format which can be obtained here in word format:
pubform_ie2013 (.doc format)

If you need to refer to the original official ACM templates, they can be obtained at .  For a submission to appear in the proceedings, at least one author must register for the conference by the deadline.

All conference papers will be fully peer reviewed using a double-blind process (i.e., authors names and affiliations must be omitted in your submitted papers) by an International Review Panel to ensure research dissemination of the highest quality. IE2013 will not accept any paper that, at the time of submission, is under review for or has already been published or accepted for publication in another journal or conference. 

Successful authors have the opportunity to modify their papers to include recommendations from the International Review Panel. All accepted papers are expected to be published in the conference proceedings. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM IE2013 conference proceedings. The proceedings volume is part of the International Conference Proceedings Series published by ACM. Please see for papers from previous years.
