IEEE Consumer Communications & Networking Conference
10-13 January 2020 // Las Vegas // USA

Call for Demonstrations

IEEE CCNC 2020 will again feature a special demonstration session showcasing the latest technological advances in the area of consumer communications and networking.

The demonstration session can host up to 30 demonstrators and will provide an exciting forum for researchers, developers, and entrepreneurs to present and discuss new applications and techniques, research demonstrations, recent research/implementation results, upcoming research challenges, practical implementations, commercial developments, future directions and novel application concepts. We envision the demonstration session as a means to exhibit innovations that have the potential to change the future landscape of consumer communications and networking.

We invite researchers and developers from academic, industrial, and government laboratories to present their novel ideas and demonstrations of original research prototypes. IEEE CCNC especially welcomes demonstrations of emerging and innovative technologies that have potential commercial application from nascent and incubating companies. In addition, authors that have a demonstration component in their work and are planning to submit their papers to the main tracks are highly encouraged to also submit proposals to the demonstration session.


Proposal Format

Demonstration proposals should be one or two pages in length, in double-column IEEE format, including authors' names and affiliations and a short abstract. Each proposal should describe the main contributions of the demonstration and the merits of the proposed idea. Of course, many variations are possible. A technology prototype can range from a mockup using computers (instead of actual consumer devices) to a full-fledged collection of networked consumer devices. Be as specific as possible in describing what you will show. In addition to the proposal to be published, an additional e-mail should be sent to the chairs, including space, power and networking requirements.

Demonstration proposals will be evaluated by a Committee including representatives of venture capitalists. Proposals will be evaluated mainly based on their potential to stimulate interesting discussions, exchange of ideas, and promote collaborations. The accepted demonstration proposals will also appear in the conference proceedings as well as on IEEE Xplore. The best demonstrator will receive a Demo Award.



Accepted demonstrations will be presented at the conference during a special demonstration session. The presenter is responsible for the demonstration and equipment setup. Each demonstration should be accompanied by a poster of approximately 30 inches by 40 inches describing it. The presenter is expected present and discuss the work with other conference attendees. For every demonstrator, a large table, a power socket, and Wi-Fi Internet connectivity will be made available. Please consult the Demonstrations Co-Chairs if you are uncertain whether your demonstration falls within the scope of the conference or if you require additional information.
