DEMO paper submission instructions

Submissions should be a two-page proposal summary that follows the IEEE formatting guidelines: refer to the IEEE submission instructions for details. Be as specific as possible in describing what you will demonstrate or display as demo.

A complete submission should be two pages in length and will include the following:

  • A 35-word abstract
  • An Overview section giving a full description of the research and technologies to be demonstrated
  • An Innovation section describing the problem and novelty of the approach in solving it
  • A section describing the relevance for MeditCom explaining why the MeditCom audience and communities should be interested in this demo
  • The demo proposal summary should explain the objective and contents of the demo, and detail its configuration and main elements. The objective should be to demonstrate an innovative application, a working prototype or a novel concept
  • Demonstrations should be based on technical achievements and prototypes at a research stage (i.e. no pre-commercial or product demonstrations are allowed).


The demo session will take place online or locally, depending on the conference type (hybrid or virtual). Summaries of accepted demos will be included in the IEEE MeditCom 2021 Proceedings. Accepted and presented summaries will be submitted to IEEE Xplore®.
