The 47th IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN), September 26-29, 2022, hybrid format (hosted in Edmonton, Canada)

Call For Demos


IEEE LCN 2022 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 demonstration. IEEE LCN is looking for demonstrations in all topics covered by the main conference and/or the symposium held in conjunction with LCN 2022. Research prototypes as well as commercial products are welcome. All accepted papers will be published in the IEEE LCN 2022 proceedings.

Demo Submission

Proposals (no more than 3 pages) must be submitted via EDAS to the LCN Demo Track.

Papers must be registered on EDAS and submitted in PDF format following the appropriate templates. Detailed submission instructions are available at the conference website. Demonstrations will be selected based on their merits and expected interest from the LCN attendance. 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.

Demo Presentation

All accepted demo papers shall be presented. The presentation will be organised in a parallel session dedicated to face-to-face demo. 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, which will be made available for attendees during the conference, to best showcase their demo.

A best demo award will be awarded to the demo with the most votes from the audience.

Important dates

  • Demo Submission: June 3 13, 2022
  • Demo Acceptance: June 23, 2022
  • Demo Camera Ready: July 15, 2022

Registration for Demos

For conference registration, a demo is regarded as a paper, i.e.,

  • Demo presenters with no accepted conference or symposium papers must select "demo-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. For each accepted demo, at least one author is required to register for the LCN 2022 main conference and present their demo at the scheduled demo session(s). The registration category must cover the presence of the author at the demo session.

Please contact Demo Chair Rahim Rahmani with any questions regarding the demo content or setup.
