Demonstrations provide researchers and practitioners with an exciting and interactive opportunity to present their systems, artifacts and/or research prototypes at the technical exhibition. In any case, it is required to avoid a commercial format, even if the demo consists of presenting a business product or service. Instead, the presentation should focus on technical aspects.
Any written support materials may be distributed locally but not published in the proceedings. Authors who already present a paper at the conference may apply for a demonstration, to complement but not to replace their paper presentation. Demonstrations can also be made by sponsor companies or as a mixed initiative involving researchers and industrial partners.
Demonstrations are based on an informal setting that encourages presenters and participants to engage in discussions about the presented work. This is an opportunity for the participants to disseminate practical results of their research and to network with other applied researchers or business partners.
In the aim to value the demonstration, the participant is invited to submit an abstract and a 4-page short paper for inclusion in the Cem15 proceedings. The abstract and the short paper should include the following:
- system description: a brief description of the system and the problem it attempts to address,
- technical content summary: a summary of the technical content of the system,
- results: results of a formal evaluation (if applicable) or of an experiment to be carried out during the demonstration (if applicable).
- technical set-up: a detailed description of the technical set-up and requirements.
- a URL link to a movie / screen capture or live version of the system,
By default, the conference will provide a table and two chairs for each demo. Special requirements regarding the hardware and software, used modalities, space, and infrastructure (such as power supplies, network access, etc) need to be explicitly mentioned in the submission. We will attempt to provide necessary equipment and infrastructure, but demonstrators will be required to provide their own computers and special-purpose equipment.
