Call for Demonstrations

Demonstrations serve the dissemination of advances embodied in research-­oriented tools and systems that use or support modularity and composition. 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. Modularity'14 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 modularity and composition community, and feasibility of presentation. The presentation has to focus on technical content and is to be given by technical members of the team.

To each demo will be allocated 30 minutes, with 10 minutes for the presentation, 15 minutes for the demonstration, and 5 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 include (though are not limited to):
  • applications of the mechanisms to support modularity and composition the in the software development life­-cycle 
  • new technologies for software modularization and composition
  • linguistic mechanism to support modularity and composition
  • modularity in domain specific languages design, implementation and application
  • composable and reusable library of programming entities

Important Dates

Submission Guidelines

The following information is required for a demonstration submission:
  • Demonstration title
  • 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 modularity and composition
    • Uniqueness of design and implementation
    • Underlying implementation techniques and technologies
    • Relation to other industrial or research efforts
    • Description with screenshots or a movie of what the audience will see
  • a demo paper of up to 4 pages (in the ACM sigplanconf 9pt format); if the demo will be accepted this paper will be included in the conference companion proceedings  
Proposals for demonstrations should be submitted in pdf and they must not exceed four pages (excluding the screenshots) plus four pages for the demo paper.
