Call for Demos
The 46th Annual IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN 2021)
October 4-7, 2021
IMPORTANT: After evaluating the current COVID-19 situation, the decision has
been made to hold this year's LCN in a fully virtual conference. The
conference dates remain the same.
Consider a virtual demo as an opportunity to showcase your work in a way that was not possible in physical meetings or would have required to travel with a lot of gear. We will do our best to accommodate demo author needs to present and discuss the demo virtually.
IEEE LCN 2021 will feature a demo session with the aim of providing
demonstrations that validate important research issues and/or show innovative
prototypes. Authors are invited to submit technical demonstrations (no more than 3 pages) showing
innovative and original research. The authors are encouraged to highlight the research component
of the demo and explicitly mention the novelty of the showcased technology/
solution. The proposal should include one page that describes
what conference participants will be able to see or experience during the
IEEE LCN is looking for demonstrations in all topics covered by the main
conference and/or the symposium held in conjunction with LCN 2021. Research
prototypes as well as commercial products are welcome.
## Demo Submission
Proposals (no more than 3 pages) must be submitted via EDAS to the LCN Demo Track:
Demonstrations will be selected based on their merits and expected interest
from the LCN audience. All demo proposals will be reviewed by the members of the Demo Board via an
EDAS score sheet. The scores will be provided to the authors along with the
## Virtual Demo Presentation
Demo presentations will be organised as parallel dedicated virtual rooms for each demo similar to a face-to-face demo session. Demo presenters will have the opportunity to perform live demos while also answering questions from the audience. In addition, authors of accepted demos will also be asked to record a video to best showcase the demo which will be available for attendees during the conference.
* A best demo award will be awarded to the demo with the most votes from the audience.
## Important Dates
Demo Submission: Sep 6, 2021 [Extended]
Demo Acceptance: Sep 20, 2021
Demo Camera Ready: Sep 27, 2021
## Registration for Demos
For conference registration, a demo is not regarded as a paper, i.e.,
* demo presenters with no accepted conference or symposium papers must select
"non-author registration" when registering for the conference
* demo presenters with accepted LCN or symposium papers incur no extra charge
for a demo. The conference registration will cover their demo.
Please feel free to contact the demo chair if you have any questions regarding the demo content or setup.
