Call for Demonstrations at AOSD 2013

Important Dates

  • Submission: January 7, 2013
  • Notification: January 16, 2013
  • Final paper: January 23, 2013


Demonstrations serve the dissemination of advances embodied in research-oriented tools and systems that use or support AOSD. Attendees learn about emerging technologies and have opportunities to interact with their developers. Presenters gain excellent opportunities to increase the visibility and impact of their work. AOSD.13 solicits high-quality proposals for its demonstration track. Demonstrations may present commercial, academic, or corporate research systems.

Demonstrations will be selected on the basis of technical merit, novelty, relevance to the AOSD community, and feasibility of presentation. The presentation has to focus on technical content and is to be given by technical members of the team.

There are two types of demonstrations: Tabletop demos and Forum demos. The intent is to split demos into those that can be shown without a formal presentation and those that require one.

In Tabletop demos, the presenter is seated at a table, and is surrounded by a number of chairs for attendants. There is no conceptual introduction, instead the demonstration starts with showing the tool itself. This form of demonstration is especially suited for extensions to tools which are well known, as no introduction is needed, or for demos where more interaction with the audience is expected, as the setting is more intimate. Tabletop demos are allocated 30 minutes, with 20 minutes for the demonstration and 10 minutes for questions and discussion.

Forum demos start with a conceptual introduction of about 10 minutes before the tool itself is demonstrated. This form of demo is suited for tools which are not well known or new, or have been significantly extended recently. A Forum demo is allocated 45 minutes, with 10 minutes for the presentation, 25 minutes for the demonstration, and 10 minutes for questions and discussion.

Every demonstration will be scheduled twice for presentation. Authors of regular papers are also welcome to submit accompanying demonstrations.

Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include (though are not limited to):

  • support for application of the aspect-oriented paradigm throughout the development life-cycle
  • new technologies for aspect weaving
  • reverse engineering of aspects from existing software artifacts
  • reusable library aspects
  • applications of AOSD

Submission Guidelines

The following information is required for a demonstration submission:

  • Demonstration title
  • Type of demonstration (Tabletop or Forum)
  • Name, email, address, and phone number of the contact person
  • Names and affiliations of all presenters
  • A short biography for each presenter
  • Abstract of 200 words for advertising the demonstration on the conference web site
  • Hardware and presentation requirements
  • Demonstration overview, including:
    • Problems addressed
    • Relevance to AOSD
    • Uniqueness of design and implementation
    • Underlying implementation techniques and technologies
    • Relation to other industrial or research efforts
    • Description with screenshots (or optionally a movie) of what the audience will see

Proposals for demonstrations must not exceed four pages (excluding the screenshots) in either ASCII (plain or HTML) or PDF. Authors of accepted demo submissions will have the opportunity to submit short demo papers for publication in the ACM digital library.

How to Submit

Proposals are to be submitted by email to the Demonstrations Chairs (Walter Binder and Charles Zhang):

The Demonstration Chairs will confirm receipt of the submission.
