Demo Submissions
At SiMPE 2013, we also invite submissions for interesting demos. Any 
prototype or demos on the phone or a device are encouraged to for 
submission. A 1-page description of the demonstration in the above format 
is required by the submission deadline. The 1-page description should 
provide specific details about the demo, the device and how this will be 
presented at the workshop. If the authors need specific arrangements to be 
made on the workshop day, please mention those as well.  We also welcome 
participation without paper submission. 
Note: Since the workshop also aims to be a meeting point for researchers 
working in this area, at least one author of accepted papers has to attend 
the workshop to present their work, else the paper will not be included in 
the final workshop proceedings. Participants who wish to attend the 
workshop will have to register for the main conference as well.
