Posters and Demos

Call for Posters and Demos

WUWNet'22 seeks proposals for posters and live demos or videos of demos of underwater wireless systems, applications and services. Posters should describe work either new or ongoing, not published before, and provide opportunities for authors to interact directly with conference attendees. Poster and demos of research prototypes as well as commercial products are welcome. The presenter is expected to understand the system being demonstrated and explain the technical contributions of the system to the audience. Unlike posters, demos of previously published systems are welcome.

The student poster competition aims to provide a forum for researchers to show their innovative and emerging work and obtain early feedback on ongoing research from the conference attendees. The poster venue is especially suited for presenting new research directions as well as intermediate results of ongoing research that may generate discussion of promising theoretical or experimental ideas that have not yet been investigated or validated in detail. Educational, tutorial-like material related to underwater wireless systems  is also welcome. Posters describing open-source software/hardware as well as open data are encouraged. 

The demonstrations at WUWNet aim at complementing the overall program of the conference by showing real-world, applied-and-tested advances of underwater technologies. As such, demos are an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present their innovative prototypes, practical developments, on-going projects, and lessons learnt relevant for the topics of interest of the main conference (underwater sensing, communications, networking, robotics, systems, and applications). Submissions from both industry and academia are encouraged. 

Disclaimer: WUWNet is not an appropriate forum for marketing or sales presentations.

Poster & Demo Submission Instructions

Please submit an extended abstract (no more than 2 8.5x11 inch pages including all figures and references) of your poster or demo via EDAS. The title should begin with Poster: or Demo:.

Please, be as specific as possible in describing what you will demonstrate or exhibit. For demo submissions, the extended abstract must include a short description of space and equipment requirements (other than a demo booth/table). 

For the demo submission, it is also encouraged to submit an optional companion video that illustrates the demo. The companion video should highlight the technical contributions of the demo and should be no more than 1 min in length. Please include the YouTube URL of the companion video in the extended abstract. Submissions for posters should only include the extended abstract, not the poster itself. Accepted abstracts for poster/demo will be posted and maintained on the conference website, but not published in the proceedings.

You are welcome to use ACM conference format, specified at the WUWNet'22 paper submission guideline page.

Best Poster & Demo Award

All poster and demo submissions will be considered for the Best Poster Award and Best Demo Award, respectively. An independent review committee will select the winners at the conference.

Poster Presentation Instructions 

Both student posters and demos require the authors to show them throughout the conference. Posters will be posted on the walls. We will provide 40" x 60" foam boards and accessories. You are free to use different poster sizes, such as 36" x 48", 36" x 56", and 40" x 60".
