IEEE SECON 2015 Call for Posters/Demos


• Poster/demo submission deadline: April 20, 2015
• Acceptance notification: April 30, 2015
• Camera ready version: May 11, 2015


Both poster and demo proposals must be submitted electronically via the EDAS as follows:
•  Posters:
•  Demos:


IEEE SECON 2015 will include poster/demonstration sessions that shall provide a forum to present and discuss: works in progress, industry demonstrations of new applications and techniques, practical implementations, industrial and commercial developments, research testbeds and demonstrations, recent research/implementation results, upcoming research challenges, future directions, and novel approaches in the fields of sensing and communication in wireless networks. One of the key goals of this conference is to foster collaboration between industry and academia. Hence, participation of researchers/developers from industry and posters/demonstrations reporting joint work between industry and academia are especially encouraged.
Poster submissions should be in the form of a short paper/abstract describing the main contributions and the merits of the proposed ideas as well as reporting initial results and the challenges towards a full-fledged solution of the problem under consideration. Abstracts will be evaluated mainly based on their potential to stimulate interesting discussions, exchange of ideas and promote collaborations.
Demonstration submissions will also be on the basis of a short paper/abstract describing a prototype system and/or an interesting implementation concept as well as the merits of the proposed ideas. They should also include the space requirements and/or any other equipment-specific requirements. Proposals will be evaluated mainly based on their potential to stimulate interesting discussions, exchange of ideas and promote collaborations. Submissions for both posters and demos should not be more than three pages (strictly based on IEEE conference 2-column template) in length. The documents must contain the authors' names, affiliations, and contact information and the designated corresponding author. More detailed paper formatting instructions can be found at
Accepted authors of posters/demos will have a space in the poster/demo session room to display their posters or exhibit their demos, as well as to describe their work in discussions with interested attendees. In addition, each poster/demo presenter will have 5 minutes to orally present their idea at the beginning of the poster/demo session, such that he/she may get a chance to attract audiences to his/her poster/demo. Finally, the abstract of the accepted posters/demos will appear in IEEE Xplore, under the IEEE Communications Society policy that all accepted IEEE SECON 2015 posters/demos require at least a one-day registration. For authors co-authoring multiple posters/demos, a one day registration is valid for up to two presentations.

The IEEE SECON 2015 will also run a best poster and best demo award competition. Awards will be based on the novelty and the potentials of the poster/demo to drive further research. The quality of presentation/demonstration as well as the attraction they will get during the session will be important criteria for the award as well. Award decisions will be announced during the reception of the main conference and the authors will be given the opportunity to make a short presentation of their research during the main conference.

Any questions can be addressed to Poster chair at and Demo chair at
