IEEE CCNC 2012 Demonstrations
IEEE CCNC 2012 will feature a special demonstration session showcasing 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 research prototypes and/or research ideas -- they cannot consist of actual commercial products.
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 will evaluate the proposals. It is headed by the demonstration chairs and has representatives of venture capitalists among its members, Proposals will be evaluated mainly based on their potential to stimulate interesting discussions, exchange of ideas, and promote collaborations. The best demonstrator will receive a Demo Award.
Accepted demonstrations will be presented during a special demonstration session during the conference. The presenter is responsible for the demonstration and equipment setup. The presenter is expected to stand next to his/her exhibit and discuss the work with other conference attendees. Note that bandwidth of available Internet connection may vary in the demonstration room. Please consult the demonstration chairs if you are uncertain whether your demonstration falls within the scope of the conference or if you require additional information.
IEEE CCNC has reserved a booth at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC). CES 2012 is adjacent to IEEE CCNC. At the booth, there will be a unique opportunity for a small number of demonstrators to be shown to the greater public. These demonstrators will be selected by the Demonstration Committee from the proposals submitted for the IEEE CCNC Demonstrations Session, based on their potential to represent the leading edge spirit of the conference. Proposals should therefore explicitly state if the proposer would like to present their prototype at the CES 2012. If so, then the proposal can only be accepted if the proposer is willing to present at IEEE CCNC as well as all days of the CES. Furthermore, a small extra fee will be charged. This fee will cover the costs of the booth and elevate the proposing organization or company to an official patron of IEEE CCNC 2012.
Demonstration proposals should be one or two pages in length and will appear in the conference proceedings as well as on IEEE Xplore. Submission guidelines and formatting details can be found under Author Information on the CCNC web site. Only electronic submissions will be accepted.
