NIPS 2011 Call for Demonstrations
Demonstration Proposal Deadline: Monday September 19, 2011
The Neural Information Processing Systems Conference 2011 
http://nips.cc/Conferences/2011/ has a Demonstration Track running in 
parallel with the evening Poster Sessions, December 13-15, 2011, in 
Granada, Spain.

Demonstrations are an opportunity to showcase:
* Hardware technology
* Software systems
* Neuromorphic and biologically-inspired systems
* Robotics
or other systems, which are relevant to the technical areas covered by NIPS
(see Call for Papers http://nips.cc/Conferences/2011/CallForPapers) .
Demonstrations must show novel technology and must be live, preferably with
some interactive parts. A demonstration is not just another poster 
presentation or a slide show, the action part is important.

Submissions: Submission of demo proposals at the following URL: 

You will be asked to fill a questionnaire and describe clearly:
* the technology demonstrated
* the elements of novelty
* the live part
* the interactive part
* the equipment brought by the demonstrator
* the equipment required at the place of the demo

Evaluation Criteria: Submissions will be refereed on the basis of technical
quality, novelty, live action, potential for interaction.
