Invitation for submissions

The SUEDL 2012 System Demonstration Program Committee invites proposals for the Demonstrations Program. We encourage both the submission of early research prototypes and interesting mature systems.

Areas of interest include (but not limited to) the topics listed for the conference paper submission:

  • User-adaptive technologies
  • Personalization and recommendation
  • Information discovery and exploration
  • Navigating information spaces
  • Crowd sourcing and user generated content
  • Navigation using visual metaphors
  • Supporting exploration using enriched content
  • Any other technique which supports exploration of Digital Libraries

Accepted demos will be presented at a poster and demo session during the SUEDL workshop.

In their submission, developers should outline the design of their system and provide sufficient details to allow the evaluation of its validity, quality, and relevance to the topic of the workshop. Pointers to web sites running a demo preview will also be helpful.

For demos, authors will be required to bring laptop computers or other appropriate equipment, as no equipment will be provided.

Submission information

Submissions may consist of 6 pages (including references) and are required to be in pdf and formatted in the Springer’s LNCS format.
