Call for Academic or Industrial Demos or Exhibits
The 7th Pacific-Rim Symposium on Image and Video Technology (PSIVT 2015) Organising Committee invites Proposals for Demos or Exhibits to be held in conjunction with PSIVT 2015 in Auckland, New Zealand, 23rd to 27th of November, 2015. Special Demo Sessions are scheduled for the 25th and 27th of November; however, demo spaces can also be made available for other times during the week. The scope of the proposal should be consistent with the conference themes.
The purpose of demos or exhibits is to give researchers or the industry the opportunity to showcase their contributions or products. Academic demonstrations are free of charge for registered participants of the symposium. Industrial demos or exhibits can be part of a sponsorship agreement; otherwise a charge (depending on required space) applies for covering costs.
Academic demo submissions will be evaluated based on originality, technical soundness and clarity of explanations. Space for equipment and/or posters will be provided and requirements need to be detailed in the submission. All demonstrators are required to bring their own computing equipment and any additional display, sensor, and hardware needed for the demonstration at their own expense.
Submissions (in pdf format) should include author or demonstrator names, affiliation and contact information, a brief description of the demonstrated system or the shown products, and a list of appliances the demonstration requires in addition to a table and electric power. If interested in having demo material included into the files made available to all PSIVT participants, then also provide two pages in the usual LNCS proceedings style possibly including a summary of the novel characteristics of the demonstration, the significance of the contribution to multimedia technology, applications or systems, comparisons with related systems, references or figures.
If a demo proposal is attached to an accepted PSIVT 2015 main conference or workshop paper, it should be indicated in the submission. Authors are encouraged to provide a link to a website that describes or illustrates the demonstration (e.g. by containing a video, slides or an interactive presentation).
