Call for Demo Papers

The Demonstration Track of DASFAA 2018 provides an engaging and highly interactive way to showcase your database research. Demo submissions are solicited in all areas of database applications, practice, technology, and theory.

All demo submissions need to:

  1. Motivate the demonstrated concepts

  2. Describe the system and the technology

  3. Detail the features and scenarios that will be demonstrated, and

  4. Pinpoint the novelty and significance of the contribution

Authors are encouraged, but not required, to submit a brief video that illustrates the demonstration scenario alongside the paper submission. Demo submissions will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Potential usefulness,

  • Functionality,

  • Potential for engagement with the audience, and

  • Novelty.

Demo submissions must be prepared in accordance with the given submission guidelines for the conference. Demo submissions must not exceed 4 pages, in LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) format , including references.

Only electronic submissions in PDF format will be considered. Please upload your submission to the DASFAA 2018 Demo Track through the CMT submission link below:

Video submissions can be up to 5 minutes long (file size of up to 30MB), and are optional for demo paper submission. Videos should be submitted in the Easychair system. The video must be in MPEG format and must be playable using a wide variety of media players, including VLC Media player.

Demo submissions must not be under review for any other publishing forum or presentation venue (including conferences, workshops, and journals) during the time they are being considered for DASFAA. Furthermore, after you submit to DASFAA, you must await our response and only resubmit elsewhere if your demo is rejected (or withdrawn at your request). This restriction applies to identical submissions as well as to submissions with a substantial overlap in scientific content and results.

Demo submissions will be included in the conference proceedings
