Call for Best Students & YPs Demo Competition
This call is devoted to students and Young Professionals (YPs) to present their innovative demonstrations (prototype implementations, systems and technologies).
This competition is intended as a forum for showcasing the state of the art in a broad range of fields that include all the themes belonging to EUROCON 2023.
The language is English.
Demos can be considered as real, practical, and interactive proof of the presenters’ research ideas and scientific or engineering contributions, with the goal of offering students & YPs the opportunity to discuss systems, applications, prototypes, or proofs-of-concept with senior researchers and people from industry.
The audience present at the IEEE EUROCON will be able to vote their favorite demo (instructions on the voting procedure will be provided on site). The public vote will be taken into consideration by the evaluation committee which will select the best demo. Demos will be primarily judged on originality, execution, and illustration of the core research ideas.
All competitors (max 10) selected for presenting at the competition will receive a participation certificate. The best Demo will be awarded with a 500 € prize sponsored by the IEEE Italy Section.
The award ceremony will take place on July 7, 2023 during the social dinner (the winners will have free access to the dinner).
The competition will take place on July 6, 2023 during a dedicated exhibition time (see programme schedule on the web page of the conference to know the exact time and place) and the event will be in presence.
Please submit a short demo description using an abstract format (max. 1 page in English) describing the scientific or engineering concepts behind the work, the novelty of the work and how the work differs from existing systems/techniques.
Each Demo will be given a table a poster holder and a power outlet.
Demo presenters are expected to bring with them everything that is needed for their demo (hardware, laptops, sensors, PCs, etc.).
Participants are required to present also a poster illustrating the scientific research that lies behind the demonstrator.
The deadline to submit proposals is May 5, 2023. If you are considering to submit a contribution, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
