Call For Demo & Posters

The 38th IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS 2018) solicits demonstrations of distributed computing systems and applications, as well as posters, presenting the research and development results in distributed computing systems and applications. Early implementations, prototypes, work-in-progress systems/applications as well as commercial products that are related to distributed computing technologies, cloud computing technologies, edge computing technologies, etc., are welcome.   Especially, we encourage software demos that the audience can interact with.

The selection criteria for ICDCS demonstrations include novelty, technical merit, and the ability of the audience to interact with the demos. The demo proposal may outline the features of the demo that the audience can interact with and the novelty behind the underlying system.

Demo Submission

A demo submission requires a software demo proposal that should follow IEEE 8.5″ x 11″ Two-Column Format. The demo paper should be up to 4 pages, including all figures/tables and references. Separately, a text file describing the information of your demo (required space, power, network, etc.) must be provided.

Demo proposals should be submitted electronically to https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icdcs2018. In the submission form, select the Demo & Posters Track.

All accepted demonstration papers (up to 4 pages) will be included in the conference proceedings and will be published on IEEE Xplore (IEEE Digital Library).

Best Demo Awards

There will be two Best Demo Awards at the conference, one based on track chair and program committee evaluation and another based on audience poll during the poster and demo sessions.
