DEMO PRESENTATION (Link to a PDF file for DEMO_IWANN_2015)

Demonstrations in IWANN 2015 are intended to introduce new or on-going work on systems and applications related to the topics of the Conference and provide opportunities for authors to interact directly with the conference attendees.
The demonstrations session complements the overall program of the conference with the direct presentation of real-world, applied-and-tested advances trough simulations, or hardware systems including sensors networks, smart phone apps, robotics, etc.).

Abstracts of accepted demos will be included in the IWANN 2015 conference proceedings, submissions from both industries and universities are encouraged.
Demo submissions will be evaluated on relevance, maturity of the systems to be presented and technical challenges they solve.


Demo proposals must include an extended abstract (at least 3-4 pages in the LNCS template) including all figures and references and could include either a link to the online demo or a video presenting it. Submission should also specify:
  1. What is the research background and application context of the demonstration and the key technology used?
  2. What are the innovative aspects?
  3. What exactly will be demonstrated?
  4. What exactly will a visitor of the demonstration learn?

The authors should also provide a brief sketch of the planned demonstration and specific requirements (power, network, security...). Demo proposals must be submitted electronically with the authors list and the abstract in PDF to the following email: and also must be submitted to the EasyChair web platform.
