The demo session will provide the opportunity to see live demonstrations and prototypes of research projects, corresponding to all relevant topics of the Conference.

The live session will provide a forum for researchers from Industry and Academia to give a demonstration of their work with concrete systems, tools and prototypes. The Demo area will be open to Conference Delegates, providing unique opportunities for potential technological transfer and dissemination of research results.


Submission is open to testbed and prototypes originating from research activities and submission from collaborative work; EU research projects are especially encouraged. No demonstrations of commercial or pre-commercial products will be accepted.

The proposals should include specific sections highlighting the innovation that will be demonstrated and how the demo will be presented and illustrated interactively. Inclusion of results from the demonstration or prototype, even if at early stage, is strongly encouraged.


The main criteria for the selection of a demo are the level of innovation and how the demo is presented (live demonstrations with on-site hardware equipment are preferred. Pre-recorded videos and other material can be used as support/backup material but should not be the main technical content of the demonstration).


Authors wishing to participate in the demo session are invited to submit technical proposals in the standard conference proceedings style, via the online submission system, selecting the dedicated "Demo Session" sub-category. A complete submission should not exceed three pages and should include a explanation of the proposed demo equipment / materials. An additional page in permitted for any references.

Submission process

Demo proposals will undergo a peer review selection process, conducted by the Demo Sub Committee, comprised of the Demo Sub Committee Chair and 8 members from different Technical Programme Sub Committees. The accepted proposals will be included in the conference proceedings.

Onsite equipment

For each selected demo a rectangular table, two chairs, a power outlet and a 42" touch screen with HDMI connection, and Wi-Fi Internet connectivity (best effort) will be provided.

Questions regarding the demo session can be directed at at any time.

Submission deadline: 7th May 2019 (23:59 UTC)
