Demo Paper Submission:

All demonstration submissions must be less than 5 pages single spacing, including all figures and and should provide a short description of the demonstrated system, a summary of its novel characteristics, the list of functions and features that are going to be demonstrated. Detailed formatting instructions from IEEE can be found at:

The selection criteria used for demonstration proposals include the novelty, the technical quality, and the attractiveness of the demonstrated system.

Demo proposals need to be submitted electronically to the demo session account ( before the deadline of demo proposal submission. For every accepted demo paper, MDM2006 does require at least one person to register and present. MDM can provide space and standard equipments (PC and Internet connection) at the conference. A demo will be included in the conference proceedings.


We expect to offer a best demo award to the best demo presented in the demo session.
