Call for Demonstrations at AOSD 2012
MODULARITY: aosd.2012, March 25-30, 2012
Hasso-Plattner-Institut Potsdam, Germany
Demonstration proposals due: Monday, January 9th, 2012
Notification: Monday, January 30th, 2012
Demonstrations serve to disseminate advances embodied in
research-oriented tools and systems that use or support AOSD.
Attendees learn about emerging technologies and have opportunities to
interact with their developers. Presenters gain excellent
opportunities to increase the visibility and impact of their work.
AOSD.12 solicits high quality proposals for its demonstration track.
Demonstrations can range across commercial, academic, and corporate
Demonstrations will be selected on the basis of technical merit,
novelty, relevance to the AOSD community, and feasibility of
presentation. The presentation should be focused on technical content
and given by the technical members of the team.
There are two types of demonstrations: Forum demos and Tabletop demos.
The intent is to split demos into those that can be shown without a
formal presentation and those that require one.
In Tabletop demos, the presenter is seated at a table, and is
surrounded by a number of chairs for attendants. There is no
conceptual introduction, instead the demonstration starts with showing
the tool itself. This form of demonstration is especially suited for
extensions to tools which are well known, as no introduction is
needed, or for demos where more interaction with the audience is
expected, as the setting is more intimate. Tabletop demos are
allocated 30 minutes, with 20 minutes for the demonstration and 10
minutes for questions and discussion. Authors of regular research
papers are also welcome to submit accompanying demonstrations.
Forum demos start with a conceptual introduction of about 10 minutes
before the tool itself is demonstrated. This form of demos is suited
for tools which are not well-known or new, or have been significantly
extended in recent times. A Forum demo is allocated 45 minutes, with
10 minutes for a presentation, 25 minutes for the demonstration and 10
minutes for questions and discussion. Every demonstration will be
scheduled twice for presentation. Also, demonstration presenters will
have the opportunity to give a 1-minute overview of their
demonstration during a conference plenary session.
There will also be space set aside where any conference attendee can
give an informal demonstration. Demonstrations included in the program
are also allowed and encouraged to be presented informally.
Topics of Interest
Topics of interest include (though are not limited to):
* support for application of the aspect-oriented paradigm throughout
the development life-cycle,
* new technologies for aspect weaving/compilation,
* reverse engineering of aspects from existing software artifacts,
* reusable library aspects,
* interesting applications of AOSD
The following information is required for a demonstration/exhibition
* Demonstration title
* Type of demonstration (Forum or Tabletop)
* Name, email, address, and phone number of the contact person
* Names and affiliations of the other presenters
* A short bio of all presenters
* Description including:
- Problems addressed
- Relevance to AOSD
- Uniqueness of design and implementation
- Underlying implementation techniques and technologies used
- Relation to other industrial or research efforts
- A description with screenshots (or optionally a movie) of what
the audience will see
A 200 word abstract for advertising the demonstration/exhibition on
the conference web site
Hardware and presentation requirements
Proposals for demonstrations/exhibitions should not exceed four pages
(excluding the screenshots) in either ASCII (plain or HTML) or Adobe
Portable Document Format (PDF).
How to Submit
Proposals should be submitted by email to the Demonstrations Chairs
(Carl Friedrich Bolz and Damien Cassou,) at demos at aosd.net. The
