Call for Demonstrations

Demonstrations present first-hand experience with research prototypes or operational systems. They provide opportunities to exchange ideas gained from implementing IR systems and to obtain feedback from expert users. Demonstration submissions are welcomed in any of the areas identified in the call for papers. One-page demonstration abstracts will appear in the conference proceedings. Authors are invited to submit demonstration outlines presenting original, previously unpublished, work on or before 22 October 2009. Submissions must be in English and consist of an extended abstract and an additional one-page requirements description. The abstract should emphasize what the implemented system aims to achieve, the major components of the system, the novelty of the techniques that have been implemented, and comparisons with comparable systems. The requirements description should identify the hardware, software and network access requirements for the demonstration. Network connections and computers with standard Web browsers can be provided upon request. Proposals to demonstrate systems that require more than a standard Web browser (e.g. context-aware mobile systems or virtual reality systems) must explain how the systems will be demonstrated at the conference. Unlike posters and research papers, authors of demonstration proposals are not expected to take measures to conceal their identity from reviewers.
