Call for Demos

CALL FOR DEMOS

IEEE International Conference on Blockchain and Cryptocurrency (ICBC 2021) cordially welcomes proposals for "show-and-tell" demonstration sessions (demos) to demonstrate research prototypes and decentralized applications. Demo sessions have been proven to serve both as a natural platform for researchers from academia and industry to demonstrate their ground-breaking prototypes, elucidate innovative solutions, or as a wider discussion forum. As a high-profile, leading-edge forum for researchers and engineers in the field of blockchain and cryptocurrency, ICBC 2021 offers a unique opportunity to showcase applications, engage with a highly skilled audience and discuss emerging technologies and recent research prototypes with key thought leaders. The ICBC2021 organizers encourage presentations of demos related to any of the technical areas within the merit of the research area, as summarized at the conference’s CFP.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES FOR DEMOS

Prospective contributors are expected to turn in a demo proposal in the form of a 2-page paper in the IEEE conference double-column format, preferably incorporating a demo system architecture illustration. Demo papers will be peer-reviewed and accepted papers will be included in the electronic conference proceedings bundle provided to ICBC 2020 delegates and will be subsequently made available via IEEE Xplore.

Demo papers should be submitted via JEMS conference submission system by January 15, 2021; acceptance notifications will be sent no later than 19 February 2021, and camera-ready versions should be uploaded via JEMS conference submission system 3 April 2021. The demo proposals will be reviewed by the ICBC 2021 demo program committee and will be approved based on the availability of demo space as well as on the following criteria:

  • Extent and significance of the research contribution,
  • The potential impact on the audience,
  • Quality of the proposed implementation,
  • Presentation quality.

At least one author of each accepted demo proposal is required to register for the ICBC 2021 at the full conference rate and present their demo at the scheduled demo session.

A submissions link will be added to this page closer to the deadline.

DEMO SETUP

A successful demo proposal will be allocated space in the central Reception/Exhibition area and will run in parallel to the standard technique sessions.

The demo presenters will have at their disposal: a table, a board for a poster/banner, and an electrical power connection. It is the responsibility of the presenters to cater for any other equipment, shipping and delivery costs, and care of their exhibit items during the conference.

As a demonstrator, you will need to register for ICBC, in order to be given a demonstrator's kit. Once at the conference site, please liaise with the local organizers regarding any practical issue, including set-up times and layout of your demonstration space.

IMPORTANT DATES

  • Submission Deadline: 15 January 2021
  • Acceptance Notification: 19 February 2021
