IEEE CCNC 2011 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 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, 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. 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.
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.
