Call for Contributions: Demo Session

The demo session at RTAS 2016 will provide a forum for researchers to give a demonstration of their work with concrete systems, tools and prototypes in all areas of real-time embedded technology and applications as part of the CPS Week joint poster/demo session. Authors are invited to submit short technical abstracts (up to 2 pages) describing what will be demonstrated and how the contributions will be illustrated interactively. In keeping with the spirit of the main symposium, submissions with an emphasis on system and application aspects are especially encouraged. Authors of papers accepted at RTAS’16 are welcome to propose a demo of their work.

[The WiP-and-demo proceedings are available here.]

Submission of Papers

This year, every author is required to submit two separate documents:

  1. A demo abstract that will appear in the main proceedings. These abstracts must include a conventional header with the title of the demo and the names and affiliations of the authors. The header must be followed by approximately 300 words (i.e. about half a page) that summarize in one or two paragraphs the research context and the specificity of the solution that will be demonstrated. To avoid doubling up the references and skewing the citation count, it is extremely important to note that these abstracts must *not* contain references nor acknowledgments! All references and acknowledgements will be removed from the document before its publication in the main proceedings.
  2. A short demo paper that will be made available online and at the conference. Demo papers should adhere to the IEEE 10-point, two-column conference format, and be 1 to 2 pages long, including all references and appendices. They should repeat and extend the information provided in the abstract. In addition, they must clearly describe what will be demonstrated and how the contributions will be illustrated interactively.  If a demonstration requires special arrangements (in addition to a table, power, and wireless connectivity), please describe them clearly in the paper.

Abstracts and short papers must be submitted electronically in PDF. Submissions will be evaluated based on technical merit and innovation as well as the potential to stimulate interesting discussions and exchange of ideas at the conference.

Submission of demo papers and abstracts is closed.

By submitting a paper, the authors agree and confirm that, in case of acceptance, at least one author will register for the conference and present the demo in person. Instructions for preparing the final version of accepted demo papers and their presentation will be sent along with the notification. Authors of accepted demo papers are expected to give a brief presentation to the RTAS’16 audience followed by an interactive demo at the reception held on April 12, 2016.
