About ACSOS 2020 Posters and Demos

The 1st IEEE International Conference on Autonomic Computing and Self-Organizing Systems (ACSOS 2020) solicits the submission of posters and demos on specific aspects of autonomic software and systems and of artificial self-organizing systems, particularly related to the subject areas indicated by the ACSOS call for papers.

Posters provide a forum for authors to present their work in an informal and interactive setting. They allow authors and interested participants to engage in discussions about their work. In particular, a poster submission should motivate its relevance to the communities of autonomic computing and/or self-organizing systems, summarize the main challenges, experiences, and novel ideas.

A demonstration should present an existing tool or research prototype. Authors are expected to perform a live demonstration on their laptops during the poster and demonstration session. A demonstration submission should clearly describe the motivation, the novelty of the contribution, and the applicability of the tool or prototype to specific use cases.

Call for Posters and Demos

Important Dates

Poster / demo submission deadline:			May 15, 2020  
Acceptance notification:			        June 8, 2020  
Camera Ready copy: 	                                July 8, 2020  
Conference:				                August 17- August 21, 2020  


Posters or demonstrations can be submitted for evaluation in the form of an extended abstract. Submissions are limited to 2 pages including references and are required to comply with the standard IEEE Computer Society Press proceedings style guide. All submissions must present only original and unpublished work that is not currently under review at any other venue.

Please submit your extended abstracts electronically in PDF format using the ACSOS 2020 conference management system, https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=acsos20, selecting the ACSOS 20 Poster and Demo Track.

Selection Process

All extended abstracts will be reviewed by the members of the Poster and Demo Committee and evaluated based on novelty, impact, technical soundness, relevance to the conference, and presentation. In case an extended abstract presents a software tool, the online availability of such a tool and its documentation will also be considered in the final decision by the reviewers.

Accepted Posters and Demos

If selected, authors shall prepare a final camera-ready version of the extended abstract, taking into account the reviewers’ feedback. The extended abstract of the selected posters and demos will be included in the ACSOS2020 Poster and Demo Proceedings, which will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press and made available as a part of IEEE Digital Library. At least one author of each accepted submission is required to register at the conference and present their work in the interactive poster and demo session.

Demo Guidelines

At the conference, authors will present their live demos on their laptops and are invited to bring any other piece of equipment they may need (e.g., smart devices, sensors, actuators, robots, etc.). Software simulations or video recordings are accepted as an alternative if a live demo is not possible. Additionally, authors of the accepted demonstration submissions must also bring a poster summarizing their system and demo, following the poster guidelines.

Poster Guidelines

When preparing their posters authors are required to capture the viewer’s attention effectively by presenting in a clear and concise way the core concepts and the context of their work. Therefore, visual representations are typically the main medium of communication in a successful poster session. Few attendees will stop to read a large poster with small font and dense text. If screenshots are used, please ensure that they are readable. The recommended size for the poster is A0. Authors are required to print and bring their printed posters at the conference.

Best Poster and Demo Awards

Two prizes will be awarded, one for the best poster and one for the best demonstration. The award criteria include the quality of the submitted extended abstract and the quality of the live demo presentation during the posters and demos session.
