Submission Procedure

There are two alternative ways to propose a demo:

Option 1: Authors may click on the "will present a demo" checkbox when they submit a workshop paper by July 21. If the paper is accepted, they agree to present a demo with their poster. They do not need to submit an abstract if the paper gets accepted, but info on equipment requirements should be sent to by September 10, 2014.

Option 2: Authors may submit a 1-2 page abstract for demo presentations by October 1, 2014. These will be reviewed by demo chairs and accepted/rejected for presentation. Abstracts should briefly outline the demonstration, including application and system design. Additionally, information should be provided on equipment requirements. Demo applications may optionally include a single video file that exemplifies the results of the work.

Notes: A table, a poster board and power will be provided. There are no fees for demos, but all demo presenters will have to register to SLT2014.
