Demonstration Proposal Deadline: Monday September 19, 2011 The Neural Information Processing Systems Conference 2011 http://nips.cc/Conferences/2011/ has a Demonstration Track running in parallel with the evening Poster Sessions, December 13-15, 2011, in Granada, Spain.

Demonstrations are an opportunity to showcase:

  • Hardware technology
  • Software systems
  • Neuromorphic and biologically-inspired systems
  • Robotics

or other systems, which are relevant to the technical areas covered by NIPS (see Call for Papers http://nips.cc/Conferences/2011/CallForPapers) . Demonstrations must show novel technology and must be live, preferably with some interactive parts. A demonstration is not just another poster presentation or a slide show, the action part is important.

Submissions: Submission of demo proposals at the following URL:
http://nips.cc/Demonstrators/

You will be asked to fill a questionnaire and describe clearly:

  • the technology demonstrated
  • the elements of novelty
  • the live part
  • the interactive part
  • the equipment brought by the demonstrator
  • the equipment required at the place of the demo

Evaluation Criteria: Submissions will be refereed on the basis of technical quality, novelty, live action, potential for interaction.
