The IEEE CCNC 2009 will feature a special demonstration session that will showcase the latest technological advances in the area of consumer communications and networking. We invite researchers and developers from academic, industrial, and government laboratories to present their novel ideas, including works in progress and results that do not warrant a full technical paper. CCNC especially welcomes demonstrations of emerging and innovative technologies that have potential commercial application from nascent and incubating companies. Technology demonstrations, however, must be prototypes and/or research ideas - they cannot consist of actual commercial products.
A special Venture Advisory Committee comprising of individuals from Artiman Ventures, More Davidow Ventures and Bay Partners Ventures will help judge the demonstrations. A Best Demonstration Award will be given to the top demonstration, as determined by the Venture Advisory Committee and the Demonstration Committee.
The demonstration session will provide an exciting forum for researchers, developers, and entrepreneurs to present and discuss new applications and techniques, research demonstrations, recent research/implementation results, upcoming research challenges, practical implementations, commercial developments, future directions, and novel application concepts. We envision the demonstration session as a means to exhibit innovations that have the potential to change the future landscape of consumer communications and networking.
Submissions should be in the form of a proposal describing the main contributions of the demonstration and the merits of the proposed ideas. Be as specific as possible in describing what you will show. The description of accepted demonstration proposals will also appear in the conference proceedings. A technology prototype can range from a mockup using computers (instead of actual consumer devices) to a full-fledged collection of networked consumer devices. Each demonstration should be accompanied by a poster of approximately 30" by 40" describing your research. Of course, many variations are possible. Proposals should include space, power and networking requirements. A Demonstration Committee, headed by the demonstration chairs, will evaluate the proposals. Proposals will be evaluated mainly based on their potential to stimulate interesting discussions, exchange of ideas, and promote collaborations.
Accepted demonstrations will be presented during a special demonstration session during the conference. You will be expected to stand next to your exhibit and discuss your work with other conference attendees. You may also wish to provide additional handouts that explain your work in more detail, indicate where to find more information, etc. Please consult the demonstration chair if you are uncertain whether your demonstration falls within the scope of the conference or if you require additional information.
Demonstration proposals should be one or two pages in length and will appear in the conference proceedings. Submission guidelines and formatting details can be found under Author Information on the CCNC web site. Only electronic submissions will be accepted.
Demonstration proposal submission deadline: 4 Oct 2008
