Call For Demo Presentations
There will be a joint demo session of the
19th International Conference on Distributed Multimedia Systems DMS 2013
in conjunction with
2013 International Workshop on Distance Education Technologies
2013 International Workshop on Visual Languages and Computing.
Researchers are invited to submit a fresh demo, or a demo for a paper already submitted to any conference session (you still must follow the instructions below to prepare and submit your work for this session. If accepted, a separate registration by at least one author is required).
A best demo award will be granted by DMS 2013 based on the demo's innovation, technical contribution, and presentation.
The descriptions of accepted demos will be included in the proceedings of DMS 2013 (but are not considered conference papers).
Demo presenters will be responsible for bringing and setting up any equipment needed for their demos. Please clearly state if any additional arrangements are required in a footnote to the demo paper.
DMS 2013 - Call for demos
The main theme of the 19th International Conference on Distributed Multimedia Systems (DMS 2013) is Multimedia Inspired Computing.
The demo track provides researchers and practitioners with a platform to demonstrate their new and innovative systems while interacting with their audience in an informal setting. Demo submissions should be concerned with mature systems or prototypes in which computing technologies are used to solve practically important problems or to make entertainment. Demo papers should make clear which aspects of the system will be demonstrated. It should include a discussion of the implementation and case studies of how the system is applied.
Software and hardware demos on the following topics will be considered, but are not limited to:
- Human-Computer Interaction
- Semantic Computing and Processing
- Multimedia Databases and Information Systems
- Multimedia Indexing and Retrieval Systems
- Collaborative and Social Multimedia Systems and Solutions
- Humanities and Cultural Heritage Applications, Management and Fruition
- Mobile intelligent applications
- Cultural Heritage Preservation, Management and Fruition
- Health Care Management and Disability Assistance
- Internet and Multimedia
- Internet of Things
- Virtual, Mixed and Augmented Reality
- Multimedia Arts and Technologies
- Smartphone and tablet Apps for entertainment
- Music and New Technologies
DET 2013 - Call for demos
The demo track allows researchers and practitioners in the e-learning field to demonstrate creative solutions on distance education. Demo submissions must be based on an implemented and tested system that pursues one or more innovative ideas in the e-learning area. Demos can be from the "traditional" research community but also can be from companies that are using software for training and motivating their human resources. Software and hardware demos on the following topics will be considered, but are not limited to:
- New e-learning network infrastructures
- Learning Management Systems
- Ubiquitous learning
- Situated Learning
- Smartphone and tablet Apps for education
- Recommendation system for e-learning
- Personalised learning
- Intelligent tutoring systems
- New technologies for supporting new learning approaches
- Computer Supported Collaboration tools
- Social networking technologies for e-learning
- Virtual environments and serious games
- Smart simulation
VLC 2013 - Call for demos
Engaging demonstrations of the applications in the area of visual languages and computing are solicited for the joint demo session. Demos of both emerging academic prototypes and of cutting-edge industry developments are encouraged. Software and hardware demos on the following topics will be considered, but are not limited to:
- Aesthetic Computing
- Automated Generation and Layout of Visualisations
- Computer-Assisted Visual Art and Design
- Fusion of Vision with Audio and Other Modalities
- Gestural Computing
- Human-Machine Interface Design
- Parallel/Distributed/Neural Computing and Representations for Visual Information
- Pictorial Databases and Information Systems
- Scientific Visualization
- Sketch and Gesture based design
- Sketch Recognition
- Software to Support the use of Visual Languages
- Visual Languages
- Visual Programming
SUBMISSION OF DEMOS
Submissions that address research and development on the above and other related topics are strongly encouraged. All the submitted demos will be reviewed by the international Program Committee members. Accepted demos will be published in the Proceedings of DMS 2013. Demo descriptions of up to two (2) IEEE double-column pages should be submitted electronically via the VLC 2013 paper submission page: http://conf.ksi.edu/vlc2013/submit/SubmitPaper.php (submission site will be open Jan 1, 2013).
