SOSR Demos/Poster 2018 : ACM Symposium on SDN Research Poster and Demo Session
Call For Papers
Call for Demos and Posters - SOSR 2018
The ACM Symposium on SDN Research (SOSR) demos and posters session
showcases research-focused work currently underway in academia and
research organizations. Topics of interest are the same as research
topics in the SOSR call for papers. We particularly invite the
submission of emerging results in SDN research that address timely
problems, that can help evolve the landscape of SDN (e.g., addressing
new applications), that enhance our understanding of how SDN work in
real-world deployments or realistic test beds, or that could influence
further applied research and experimentation in industry. The SOSR 2018
Demos and Posters committee will review all proposals.
*Why should you submit a demo to SOSR?*
ACM SOSR offers unique opportunities to presenters because the event is
collocated with the Open Networking Summit (ONS), the flagship SDN
conference in which industry experts, decision makers, vision and trend
setters, researchers, and students mix up all together. In fact the SOSR
demos will share the same exhibition floor with ONS industry demos,
allowing demo presenters — especially for students — a great opportunity
to interact directly with a very knowledgeable and diverse crowd at the
conference regarding their ongoing research topics. In addition,
accepted demos and posters will be published as a two-page abstract for
the archived conference proceedings, giving even more chances to reach
broader audience over time.
All demos will be provided with table space, an external display, a
poster board and wireless Internet access by default. The demos should
be configured to run in a cloud environment accessible via Internet and
presented from the exhibition space floor on the demonstrator's laptop.
Any additional needs (beyond the defaults: table, monitor, Internet)
such as equipment for the demo, required setup time or additional
facilities must be requested with submission.
If you have interesting early-stage work, which has not yet evolved into
a fully-fledged demo, please consider submitting a poster proposal.
*What is a poster?*
We expect both poster and demo presenters to prepare a poster. A poster
is A0 paper size in portrait mode (841 × 1189mm), to which you can affix
visually appealing material that describes your research. Alternatively,
you can use the space as a continuum. You should prepare the best
material (visually appealing and succinct) that effectively communicates
your research problem, techniques, results, and what is novel/important
about the work. You do not submit such a large-format image; only an
abstract describing in text what the poster would present.
*What to submit*
Please submit your demo or poster proposal in the form of a two-page
abstract in PDF. The abstract should clearly state: (a) the problem
being addressed, (b) what makes this problem interesting, important, and
difficult, (c) your approach to the problem, and (d) the key contribution.
If you are submitting a demo, you should also include a video clip
showcasing the work, in addition to the abstract. The video should be no
more than 3 minutes and should give a good idea of what the demo is
about and what it would look like. A link to the video should be
included in the abstract PDF.
Prepare your abstract using the 10-point format following the alternate
ACM SIG Alternate conference style. Word documents will not be accepted.
The abstracts of accepted posters and demos will be available to all
attendees at the conference.
Students who are submitting demos/posters are highly encouraged to
examine if they are eligible for student travel grants.
