Call for Demos - ICTD 2016

The Eighth International Conference on Information and Communication

Technologies and Development (ICTD2016), to be hosted at the

University of Michigan from June 3-6, 2016 cordially invites proposals

for demonstrations. ICTD2016 will provide an international forum for

scholarly researchers to explore the role of information and

communication technologies (ICTs) in social, political, and economic


The demo session will provide students, researchers, and practitioners

with an international audience for showcasing demonstrations of their

work. The demo session will be given wide visibility and opportunities

for interaction during the conference. Your demonstration may span

novel hardware or software systems, or physical artifacts. Research

projects, commercial tools, or government initiatives are all welcome.

We particularly encourage engaging, interactive demos that demonstrate

real world impact. While the topic for demonstrations may have been

published previously, the demonstration itself should offer new

insights and perspectives to the ICTD community.

For consideration, an abstract of between 100-400 words describing the

context, novelty, and significance of the demonstration must be

submitted. Be as descriptive and precise as possible, detailing what

exactly will be demonstrated. Also include the technical requirements

for your demo (e.g., power, Internet access, space and other setup

requirements). Each proposal should also include a demo title, as well

as names, affiliations, and contact information for all authors.

Demonstration proposals will be reviewed according to relevance to the

conference. Accepted demonstration proposals will not be published in

the conference proceedings, but will be listed as part of the

conference program.

The submission deadline is March 18, 2016. Authors will be notified on

April 4, 2016.

To submit a demo, use the following link:

Once accepted, at least, one author of the demonstration must register

for the conference and present the demonstration during the

conference. Authors of accepted contributions in other sections of the

conference may also submit proposals for demonstrations.
