                                                           CALL FOR POSTERS AND DEMOS

                                                                          IEEE SECON 2013
                                       10th Annual IEEE Communications Society Conference on
                                      Sensor, Mesh and Ad Hoc Communications and Networks

                                                        June 24-27, 2013 - New Orleans, USA

Poster/demo submission opens: March 15, 2013
Poster/demo submission deadline: April 29, 2013
Acceptance notification: May 13, 2013

IEEE SECON 2013 will include poster/demonstration sessions that shall provide a forum to present and discuss: works in progress, industry demonstrations of new applications and techniques, practical implementations, industrial and commercial developments, research testbeds and demonstrations, recent research/implementation results, upcoming research challenges, future directions, and novel approaches in the fields of sensor, mesh and ad hoc communications and networks. One of the key goals of this conference is to foster collaboration between industry and academia. Hence, participation of researchers/developers from industry and posters/demonstrations reporting joint work between industry and academia are especially encouraged.

Poster submissions should be in the form of a short paper/abstract describing the main contributions and the merits of the proposed ideas as well as reporting initial results and the challenges towards a full fledged solution of the problem under consideration. Abstracts will be evaluated mainly based on their potential to stimulate interesting discussions, exchange of ideas and promote collaborations.

Demonstration submissions will also be on the basis of a short paper/abstract describing a prototype system and/or an interesting implementation concept as well as the merits of the proposed ideas.  They should also include the space requirements and/or any other equipment-specific requirements. Proposals will be evaluated mainly based on their potential to stimulate interesting discussions, exchange of ideas and promote collaborations.  Submissions should not be more than three pages (preferably IEEE conference format, 2-column) in length. The documents must contain the authors' names, affiliations, and contact information and the designated corresponding author.

Accepted authors of posters/demos will have a space in the poster/demo session room to display their posters or exhibit their demos and describe their work in discussions with interested attendees. Moreover, the abstract of the accepted posters/demos will appear in IEEE Xplore. IEEE Communications Society policy states that all accepted IEEE SECON 2012 posters/demos require at least a one day registration. For authors co-authoring multiple posters/demos, a one day registration is valid for up to three presentations. In addition, there needs to be at least one person per poster/demo registered for one day in order for the abstract to appear in IEEE Xplore.

Awards: The IEEE Secon 2013 will also run a best poster and best demo award competition.  Awards will be based on the novelty and the potentials of the poster/demo to drive further research. The quality of presentation/demonstration as well as the attraction they will get during the session will be important criteria for the award as well.  Award decisions will be announced during the reception of the main conference and the authors will be given the opportunity to make a short presentation of their research during the main conference.

Please submit the proposal through the emails (Please use the title: "SECON 2013 - X", where X is Demo or Poster) :
