Important Dates
       Demonstration proposal submission: November 22, 2002
       Notification of acceptance: December 09, 2002
       Demonstrations: March 19 - 21, 2002


Demonstrations are an excellent occasion for AOSD conference attendees to learn about emerging technologies and to interact with the developers of those technologies. For a presenter they offer an opportunity to share the technical aspects of their AOSD tool, system, or project. Demonstrations can range across commercial, academic, and corporate research systems. The demonstrations will be selected on the basis of technical merit, novelty, relevance to the AOSD community, and feasibility of presentation. The presentation should be focused on technical content and given by the technical members of the team. Product marketing is inappropriate in this forum.

Each demonstration will be 50 minutes long and 10 minutes will be reserved for questions. After that hour some time will be reserved in the room for continued informal discussion. All demonstrations will be scheduled twice. There will also be projectors and space set aside where any conference attendee can give an informal demonstration. A sign-up sheet will be available for scheduling informal demonstrations during the conference.
