International Conference on Sensing, Communication and Networking
6–9 July 2021 // Virtual Conference

Call for Demos

The IEEE SECON 2021 demo session solicits the submission of research, platform, and product demonstrations and exhibits, from both academia and industry, that falls at the intersection of traditional sensing/networking and new disciplinary areas including (but not limited to) machine intelligence, data analytics, edge computing, social networks, rural connectivity, electromagnetic fields, to name a few. The demo session offers a great opportunity to showcase innovative research or product prototypes, systems, software and hardware platforms, and novel applications. We also welcome live demos reproducing results of papers presented at IEEE SECON, as well as other relevant venues.

Contributions of interest include, but are not limited to, the following demonstrations:

  • Novel applications and techniques, algorithms, protocols
  • Work-in-progress in research, prototyping, and real-world deployments
  • Novel hardware and tools
  • Real-world deployments
  • New research prototypes
  • Testbeds and living labs
  • Platforms for research and real-world deployments
  • Public-private and industrial-academic collaboration initiatives
  • Pilots and proof-of-concept demonstrations from public-private projects

Since the conference will be held virtually, video recordings, as well as live streams, will be welcome. Authors of accepted demos will be allocated a time slot to reproduce a video or perform a demo in a live stream, in addition to extra time for discussion with the conference attendees.

A Best Demo Award will be given to a high-impact demo selected by a committee, taking into account inputs from conference participants.

The abstract of accepted demos will appear in the conference proceeding. Each accepted demo requires at least a one-day registration. For authors co-authoring multiple demos, a one-day registration is valid for up to two demos.

Submission Guidelines

Demo submissions will be evaluated mainly based on their potential to stimulate discussions, promote collaborations, and disseminate results of broad community interest.

The demo abstract should follow the standard two-column IEEE conference format, including the names, affiliations, and email addresses of all authors. The demo abstract should have no more than 2 pages in length and have a minimum font size of 10 points.

Demo abstracts must be submitted electronically through EasyChair, using the following link:
