The IEEE SENSORS 2019 Call for Demonstrations

The IEEE SENSORS 2019 Conference will have a “Live Demonstration of Sensors and Sensing Technologies” track to allow an interactive and tangible form of presentation, which is quite different from the oral or poster sessions. The demonstrations will be conducted in presentation booths and ample space will be provided to set up a working system, may it be interactive software on a laptop or a hardware setup. Conference attendees are invited to experience the demonstrations directly, to interact with, play with, and challenge them. Presenters will have the opportunity to show direct proof of their working sensor systems and to create a lasting impression. Similar sessions organized in previous years were very well attended. Prospective demonstrations could be either be related to the work that has already been published or the one going to be published at the IEEE SENSORS 2019 Conference.

Instructions for submission

Proposals of live demonstrations should submit a one-page description of the demonstration, using the same page formatting as for regular IEEE SENSORS papers. It is mandatory to include reference to at least one earlier publicly accessible publication in the one-page description.

There will be a "Best Demonstration Contest” in IEEE SENSORS 2019 to recognize the top live demonstration and encourage the participation in the demonstration session. The contest winner will receive the "Best Demonstration Award" of IEEE SENSORS 2019.

Important Dates

1-Page Demo Description submission deadline July 17th, 2019
Notification of Acceptance August 18th, 2019


The one-page demonstration description must contain the following information; failure to include this information may result in rejection of the submission:

1. Demonstration title and author information: The title must begin with “Live Demonstration:” and then the title of the Demonstration.

2. Demonstration setup: Describe the equipment that you will bring to IEEE SENSORS CONFERENCE. Include a photograph and/or a screenshot in the demonstration description. Only a power plug, a table and pin wall will be provided. Demonstrators are responsible for the transportation of their own equipment to the meeting site. Indicate any special requirements, such as extra space for demonstrating robotic movement or other requirements which the organizers should be aware of. Please ensure that the equipment you bring is safe for conference attendees to interact with. For the accepted demonstration paper, the authors should also prepare and setup a poster at the conference site to summarize and present the demo work.

3. Visitor experience: Explain the way in which a visitor will experience and interact with your demonstration, how it reveals the essence of your work, furthers understanding, and what the visitor will learn.

4. Earlier publication: Please include one or more citations referring to your work about the scientific background of your live demonstration. This reference must be publicly and easily accessible for the reviewers – a URL is highly recommended! Inaccessible conference publications will cause paper rejection.

Please submit your 1-page demo description by the 17th of July 2019 here. Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic, the qualifications of the authors, and quality of the proposed demonstration. Notification of acceptance will be sent to the authors by August 18, 2019.
