Demonstrations Submission

Submissions accepted for the Demo track will be advertised on the ICSOC 2020 website and would be included in the post-conference proceedings. Each Demo submission must consist of the following elements:

  • Paper (maximum 5 pages): Pages 1-4 to describe the system to be demonstrated and the bibliographic references. The authors are encouraged to discuss the application domain, the problem scenario, the technology used, the techniques involved, the innovations of the system, interactive aspects, etc. Page 5 provides the organizers with a list of requirements for the demo setting at the conference. Papers must be prepared using the ICSOC format and submitted as PDF files. Submissions not conforming to the guidelines above will be rejected.
  • Video (maximum 5 minutes): The paper should contain a URL linking to a demonstration video of no more than 5 minutes in duration (QuickTime or YouTube format) showing and explaining the execution of the system. The video should be understandable without sound as much as possible, as they can be played during the conference.

Papers should be formatted according to the Springer’s LNCS Formatting Guidelines. Submissions must be in English. All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF to the Demo Submission System.All accepted papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Videos of accepted demo papers will be played (with no sound) during the breaks and demo sessions to increase visibility.For each accepted paper, at least one author must attend the conference and present the paper. The deadline for identifying and registering this individual author will be at the time when the camera-ready version is submitted.

Selection Process

The submission and selection process for the ICSOC 2020 Demos will be separate from that of the main conference. Each submission will be assessed by the Demos Program Committee. The authors will receive a brief evaluation report with the notification. The evaluation criteria are:

  • Relevance to the ICSOC conference
  • Significance and originality
  • Video content and presentation
  • Maturity and readiness of the demonstration
  • Potential for public interaction
  • Potential impact in the intended application domain
  • Potential interest to a broader audience

Best Demonstration Award

The “Best Demo” Awards will be given to the demos that the Demonstration Program Committee judges to be the best in quality, execution, and impact among all the accepted demos in the conference.

Demonstration Chairs

  • Amin Beheshti, Macquarie University, Australia
  • Xumin Liu, Rochester Institute of Technology, USA
