International Conference on Embedded Wireless Systems and Networks (EWSN)

International Conference on Embedded Wireless Systems and Networks (EWSN)

15-17 February 2016, Graz, Austria

Call for Posters and Demos

The International Conference on Embedded Wireless Systems and Networks
(EWSN) is a highly selective single-track international conference
focusing on premier research results at the intersection of embedded
systems and wireless networking.

Along with full research papers, EWSN solicits submissions of poster
and demo abstracts whose contribution will be publicly presented
during the conference. The poster session at EWSN will provide a forum
for researchers to present their work in progress and to receive
feedback from experts attending the conference. In parallel to the
poster session, the demo session will offer a unique opportunity to
showcase real prototypes, tools, and systems to the conference

The areas of interest for both poster and demo abstracts are the same
as for full research papers. Please refer to more details.


Demo and poster abstracts must not exceed 2 pages. Titles should start
with “Poster: …” or “Demo: …” depending on the case. Pages must
have 8.5″ x 11″ (letter) two-column format, using 10-point type on
11-point leading, with a maximum text block of 7″ wide x 9″ deep with
an intercolumn spacing of .25″. The page limits include figures,
tables, and references. Submissions may not be anonymous.

A LaTex template is available at under
Calls -> Posters & Demos. At the same page, you find a link where
to perform the actual submission. As we particularly welcome
contributions from students, the submission system offers an option
to explicitly signal whether the main author is a student.

Both poster and demo abstracts may optionally complement the
submission with a video of at most 2 minutes that
further illustrates the work at hand. If the abstract is accepted, the
video will be made available directly from the conference website.

Poster and demo abstracts will be reviewed by at least three members
of the poster/demo committee to ensure quality and matching to the
goals of the poster/demo session as well as to the conference’s
topics. Accepted poster and demo abstracts will be included in
the conference proceedings that appear in the ACM Digital Library.

Presentation at the conference:

In addition to space given to every accepted abstract during the
poster/demo session, one author of the abstract will be given a slot
in a further “1-minute madness” session within the main program. In
this session, authors will have the opportunity to describe their work
to the entire conference audience with a single slide and a 1-minute
speech. Attendees will be given an online link where to cast a vote
for what they think was the best 1-minute poster or demo teaser. Best
poster and demo awards will be decided based on the outcome of the
