IEEE INFOCOM 2013 Conference, Turin, Italy

Attention: open in a new window. PDF   Print


We are soliciting technical demonstrations showing innovative and original research. IEEE INFOCOM is interested in demonstrations of technology that validate important research issues and results, or showcase realistic applications. 2013 IEEE INFOCOM will offer a large space and visibility to allow the presentation of Demos and Posters. Topics of interest are the same as research topics of IEEE INFOCOM - see the main conference call for papers.

A competition among demonstrations will be running, where attendees will be offered the chance to vote for the best demonstration. The winner will be awarded by an Apple iPad engraved with the IEEE Infocom 2013 Best Demo Award.

Abstracts describing the Demo and Posters will be indexed by IEEE-Xplore and will be distributed with the official conference proceedings. Authors must be present during the Demo and Poster sessions. No show will preclude publication in IEEE-Xplore. Authors are invited to submit a poster/demo via Edas. We welcome submission whose primary contribution is from one or more students. The IEEE INFOCOM 2013 Poster and Demo committee will review all posters and demos proposals, providing feedback to authors. Please consult the Demo/Posters Co-Chairs if you are uncertain whether your demo/poster falls within the scope of the conference.

Submissions should not exceed a two-page abstract/proposal in PDF format adhering to INFOCOM submission guidelines. Be as specific as possible in describing what you will demonstrate/show. Try to be succinct, focused and to capture the curiosity of the readers.

Demos and Posters will be located along the main corridor, offering great visibility to authors of accepted works. The demo session will offer power (Italian electric sockets, bring your own adapters!), wireless and wired Internet connectivity. Each demo will be located in a 2.5mx4.5m area already equipped with tables and closets where to store devices, and a poster stand. Stand area measures 190 cm height x 95 cm width (74.8 inches height x 37.4 inches width).

We strongly suggest to use A1 portrait shape (84.1 cm height x 59.4 cm width, i.e. 33.1 inches height x 23.4 inches width). Below are the photos of both the poster stand and the demo area.
