Authors are invited to submit a 3-page demo proposal in IEEE conference double-column format, preferably incorporating a demo system architecture illustration.
The proposal should also describe in detail what ICIN 2024 attendees will experience during the demonstration. Furthermore, we encourage software demos that the audience can interact with.
Authors of regular full and short papers submitted to ICIN 2024 are encouraged to submit a demo paper to showcase the relevance of the proposal detailed in their paper contribution.

Demo papers should be submitted through the EDAS entry of ICIN 2024, selecting Demo Paper Track:


Only PDF files will be accepted.

The demo proposals will be peer-reviewed based on the following criteria:

  • Extent and significance of the research contribution
  • Potential impact on the audience
  • Quality of the proposed implementation
  • Presentation quality

Accepted demo papers will be included in the conference proceedings provided to
ICIN 2024 attendees and will be subsequently submitted to IEEE Xplore.

At least one author of each accepted demo is required to register to ICIN 2024
conference and present the demo at the scheduled demo session(s).
