Call for Demos

The main program of the meeting includes a Demo and Exhibit Session. Demonstrations are intended as a forum for showcasing the state of the art in Multimedia Signal Processing. The focus will be on innovative prototype implementations, systems and technologies in this research field.
Demos can be considered as real, practical, and interactive proof of the presenters’ research ideas and scientific or engineering contributions, with the goal of providing multimedia researchers and practitioners with the opportunity to discuss working multimedia systems, applications, prototypes, or proof-of-concepts. Such a setting allows meeting attendants to view and interact first hand with live evidence of innovative solutions and ideas in the field of multimedia, and to see leading edge research at work.
Demonstrators will be provided with a table, power outlet, and (shared) wireless Internet. Demo presenters are expected to bring with them everything else needed for their demo, such as hardware, laptops, sensors, PCs, etc.

Submission Information

Submissions are encouraged in all areas related to multimedia signal processing. Please submit short demo descriptions (max 1 page in English) to lucio.marcenaro@unige.it describing the scientific or engineering concept behind the work, the novelty of the work, how is the work different from existing systems/techniques, and what will be actually shown during the demo.

Please use the following formats for preparing your contribution:

Best Demonstration Award

All research demo submissions with a student lead will be automatically entered into a Student Research Demo competition. During the meeting, demos will be judged by an evaluation committee and one will be selected for the Best Demonstration Award. Demos will primarily be judged on originality, execution, and illustration of the core research ideas. The 500€ prize is sponsored by GTTI.

The prize will be assigned to demonstrations presenting multimedia signal processing based applications. Demonstration related aspects will be considered being able to highlight concisely, effectively and clearly presented research ideas and their potential effects on the state of the art or the market.
The demonstrations evaluation will be based on the votes from the event's participants.
