IEEE LCN 2019 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 describe the scope, significance and required equipment. 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.

IEEE LCN is looking for demonstrations in all topics covered by the main conference and/or the symposium held in conjunction with LCN 2019.

Research prototypes as well as commercial products are welcome.

Demonstrations will be selected based on the expected interest from the LCN audience. A best demo award will be awarded to the demo with the most votes from the audience.

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
  • Any 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 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 an accepted LCN or symposium papers incur no extra charge for a demo. The conference registration will cover their demo
