The ICDE Demonstrations program provides an exciting and highly interactive way to demonstrate your database systems research. Demo proposals should focus on developments in the area of data and knowledge engineering, showing new technological advances in database systems, innovative data management and processing techniques, or novel applications of information technology.
All demonstration submissions must be within four pages in the standard IEEE proceedings style and should:
- motivate the demonstrated concepts,
- describe the system and the technology,
- explain what features and scenarios will be demonstrated, and
- state the significance of the contribution.
In addition, as an option, authors can submit a short (at most 4 minutes) video illustrating the demonstration scenario. The accompanying video must be in MPEG format and playable using a wide variety of media players, including VLC Media player 1.1.9 (available at http://www.videolan.org/vlc/).
Demonstrations will be selected based on several criteria including novelty, research contributions of the demonstrated system, and the “wow” factor of the demonstration. The proposal should describe clearly what the audience will see and how it can interact with the system.
Please submit your demo paper (up to 4 pages, IEEE proceedings style) through the CMT site for the ICDE 2012 Demo Track at https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/ICDE2012. An optional video (up to 4 minutes) can also be submitted there as “supplementary material”.
A demo proposal submitted to ICDE cannot be under review for any other publishing forum or presentation venue (including conferences, workshops, and journals) during the time it is being considered for ICDE. Furthermore, after you submit to ICDE, you must await our response and only resubmit elsewhere if your demo is rejected (or withdrawn at your request). This restriction applies to identical submissions as well as to submissions with a substantial overlap in scientific content and results.
