    The Conference Program will include plenary sessions, break-out sessions, keynote talks, a panel, a poster/demo session and a workshop day.

    Abstracts of the accepted and presented posters and demos will be published in the IFIP Digital Library as well as will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements.

    Submission Guidelines

    We request submissions in the form of a three-page abstract, adhering to the IEEE conference format. All submitted demos/posters will be judged based on their quality and relevance. Submitted demos/posters should be written in English by following the IEEE conference format, with a maximum length limit of 3 printed pages, including all the figures, references, and appendices. Submissions longer than 3 pages will not be reviewed.

    Please provide specific details about what you plan to display or demonstrate in your poster or demo. Clearly indicate in your submission whether you will be presenting a poster or a demo.

    If your demonstration requires special arrangements or additional equipment, please include these details in your submission. Please note that all additional equipment or special needs are subject to budget approval.

    All submissions must be submitted in the Portable Document Format (PDF) electronically using EDAS:

    When submitting a demos and posters, its title, all co-authors, and a concise abstract of up to 200 words should be provided to EDAS as the metadata of the paper.

    At least one author of each accepted demo/poster is required to register for the conference at the full (member or non-member) rate and the demo/poster must be presented by an author of that demo/poster at the conference unless the TPC co-chairs grant permission for a substitute presenter before the conference. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final correctly formatted, publication-ready version of the demo and poster.

    To ensure appropriate consideration of conflicts of interest during the review process, changes to the list of authors are prohibited once a demo/poster has been submitted for review. Should a paper be accepted, the complete list of authors, including the order of authors, must remain identical as the EDAS metadata in the final camera-ready manuscript.

    Important Dates

    • Demo/Poster submission deadline: April 21, 2024
    • Notification of acceptance: April 28, 2024
    • Camera-ready deadline: May 2, 2024
