IPC8 Call For Demos and Posters
* Nov. 30 : Deadline for demos and posters.
* Dec. 15 : Notification of acceptance for demos and posters.
Demonstrations and Posters
We invite researchers and developers to present their work in
demonstrations or posters. Works in progress and results which don't
warrant a full paper may be presented this way, as well as
demonstrations of interesting applications.
Demos and posters will be selected based on the broad applicability of
new technologies and novelty of new approaches.
Tables and power will be provided. Computers will not be provided; if
you intend to do a demonstration, bring your own with all the software
you need. There may be a slow Internet connection (at most a shared
ISDN line); please let us know if Internet access is important to your

If you want to give a demonstration, be sure to bring your computer!
What to Submit and How to Submit It
To request space for a demonstration or poster, send an email to Fred
Drake (firstname.lastname@example.org) describing your demonstration or poster. If you
have special space or power requirements, please be sure to include
the appropriate information. If you require Internet connectivity, be
sure to tell us about that as well!
