IEEE LCN 2018 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 showing innovative and original research. Proposals (no more than 3 pages) should be submitted via EDAS to the LCN Demo Track, and should describe the scope, significance and required equipment. IEEE LCN is a premier conference on theoretical and practical aspects of computer networking. The proposal should include one page that describes what conference participants will be able to see or experience during the demonstration. The authors are encouraged to highlight the research component of the demo and explicitly mention the novelty of the showcased technology/solution.

In general, IEEE LCN is looking for demonstrations in all topics covered by the main conference in addition to all the workshops held in conjunction with LCN 2018. Research prototypes as well as commercial products are welcome. Demonstrations will be selected based on the expected interest from the LCN audience. A public's favourite award will be given for the best demo of the session. Please see the LCN 2018 Home and Demonstrations Page for further details and updates.

Proposal submission

A proposal should include: Scope and significance of the demo and the basic idea that it supports, equipment to be used for the demo, space and setup time needed, and additional facilities needed including power and Internet/wireless access. Proposals (no more than 3 pages) can be submitted via EDAS.

Background Information

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 notification. For registration, a demo is not regarded as a paper; a non-author registration is therefore needed for the presenter. For authors of LCN or workshop papers there is no extra charge for a demo. The conference registration will cover the demo.
