Call for Demos

The Demonstrations Track of ICDE 2016 provides an exciting and highly interactive way to demonstrate your database systems research. Demo proposals should focus on developments in the area of data and knowledge engineering, showing new technological advances in database systems, innovative data management and processing techniques, or novel applications of information technology. All demonstration submissions should:
  • motivate the demonstrated concepts,
  • describe the system and the technology,
  • explain what features and scenarios will be demonstrated, and
  • state the novelty and significance of the contribution.
In addition, as an option, authors can submit a short video illustrating the demonstration scenario, please see Section Notes for Demos below.

Important Dates

Submission due: October 19, 2015
Notification of acceptance:December 20, 2015
Camera-Ready copy due:January 25, 2016

Criteria for Selecting Demos

Demonstrations will be selected based on several criteria including novelty, research contributions of the demonstrated system, and the "wow" factor of the demonstration. The proposal should describe clearly what the audience will see and how it can interact with the system.

Notes for Demos

Manuscripts must be prepared in accordance with the given submission guidelines. Demo papers must not exceed 4 pages.

Only electronic submissions in PDF format will be considered. Please upload your submission to the ICDE 2016 Demos Track through the CMT submission system. Your submission must be made within the due date specified above.

An optional video (up to 4 minutes) can also be submitted there as "supplementary material". The accompanying video must be in MPEG format and playable using a wide variety of media players, including VLC Media player 1.1.9.

Demo proposals submitted to ICDE cannot be under review for any other publishing forum or presentation venue (including conferences, workshops, and journals) during the time it is being considered for ICDE. Furthermore, after you submit to ICDE, you must await our response and only resubmit elsewhere if your demo is rejected (or withdrawn at your request). This restriction applies to identical submissions as well as to submissions with a substantial overlap in scientific content and results.

Demo manuscripts will be included in the conference proceedings and so IEEE reserves the right to exclude a demo paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if none of the authors attends the conference to present the demonstration.
