Publication

Accepted and registered Demos will be published by EAI with Open Access and showcased in EUDL – European Union Digital Library, and EAI360 – EAI’s Innovation Workbench.

Attendance

At least one author of an accepted Demo must register and present the demo at the conference venue.  Specific requirements will be arranged with presenters of accepted demos, however, demos should be self-supporting as the organizers will only be able to provide space, electricity and an internet connection.

Presentation

Accepted and registered Demos will be showcased at the venue open to the conference participants. Authors will need to be available for installation, and for facilitating interaction with their work at scheduled times during the conference.

Selection

Submissions will be evaluated and selected based on their quality, originality, and significance to the areas of interest for Urb-IoT. Submissions outside of the conference’s Scope should justify their relevance to the main area of interest.

Questions

If you have questions about the Demos, please contact the Summit coordinator at conferences@eai.eu.
