Call for Demos

We welcome submissions of demonstrations for ICTD 2013. The demo session will provide students, researchers, and practitioners with an international audience for showcasing demonstrations of their work.

Your demonstration may span novel hardware or software systems, video footage, or physical artifacts, amongst others. Research projects, commercial tools, or government initiatives are all welcome. Engaging, interactive demos that demonstrate real world impact are encouraged.

Unlike ICTD 2013 papers, the subject of a demo may have been published previously, either in ICTD or in other venues. However, the demonstration itself should be new and interesting to the community, and should reflect work that is at least as mature as a poster presentation.

At least one presenter of each accepted demo must register for the conference and be in attendance to present the demo.

Authors of accepted papers and posters are also invited to propose demonstrations of their work.

Submission Instructions

Demo participants must submit a brief abstract (minimum of 100 words) that describes the context, novelty, and significance of the demonstration, including a precise description of exactly what is to be demonstrated (hardware, software, etc.) along with the demonstrator’s technical requirements (power, internet, setup, space, etc.). Each submission should include a title; the names, affiliations, and contact emails for all authors.

Each submission will be reviewed to assess the novelty of the demo and its suitability for the conference before its final acceptance. Please note, accepted submissions will not be published in the conference proceedings.

Submission deadline is 15 September 2013. Acceptance notifications will be emailed on 27 September 2013.
