Call for Demos

The Demo session at RTAS 2015 is dedicated to showcasing on-going work and to obtain feedback from the RTAS community as part of the CPS Week joint poster/demo session. Authors are invited to submit short technical abstracts (up to 1 page) describing what will be demonstrated and how the contributions will be illustrated interactively. All accepted demo technical abstracts will be distributed online and will be made available at the conference. We particularly encourage demos on research in embedded and real-time systems from industry.

An additional page can optionally be used to specify additional requirements for the successful demo. Tables, power, and wireless connectivity will be provided. If a demo requires additional special arrangements, detail them in your submission using this optional second page (not as part of the technical content of the abstract). The authors of the accepted demos will be invited to submit an optional short video together with the camera-ready version of the abstract. The videos may be linked from the conference program on the RTAS 2015 home page.
