Demonstration Proposal Deadline: Monday September 16, 2013, 11pm Universal
Time (4pm Pacific Daylight Time).

The Neural Information Processing Systems Conference 2013
http://nips.cc/Conferences/2013/ has a Demonstration Track running in
parallel with the evening Poster Sessions, December 5-7, 2013, in Lake
Tahoe, Nevada, USA.

Demonstrations offer a unique opportunity to showcase robotics technology
* Robotics Hardware
* Robotics Software systems
* Neuromorphic and biologically-inspired robotics systems

or other robotics systems, which are relevant to the technical areas
covered by NIPS (see Call for Papers
http://nips.cc/Conferences/2013/CallForPapers ). Demonstrations must show
novel technology and must be run live, preferably with some interactive
parts. Unlike poster presentations or slide shows, live action and
interaction with the audience are critical elements.

Submissions: Submission of demo proposals at the following URL:

You will be asked to fill a questionnaire and describe clearly:
* the robotics technology demonstrated
* the elements of novelty
* the live action 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, and potential for interaction.
