Demonstration Proposal Deadline: Monday September 15, 2014, 11pm Universal Time (4pm Pacific Daylight Time)

The Neural Information Processing Systems Conference 2014
http://nips.cc/Conferences/2014/ has a Demonstration Track running in parallel
with some of the evening Poster Sessions, December 8-11, 2014, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Demonstrations offer a unique opportunity to showcase robotics technology including:
* 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/2014/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: https://nips.cc/Demonstrators/

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.
