Call for HotWeb Posters and Demos!

HotWeb 2006 is expanding its program by seeking posters and live demonstrations that show the impact of internet systems and technologies on actual end-user experience. Whether or not you have a paper in the technical session, if you have a system that pushes the state of the art of web infrastructure, interactivity, or design please consider presenting a poster or a live demo at HotWeb 2006. Authors of accepted posters and demos will be expected to give a short introduction of their work during the technical program, followed by presentation of the poster or live demo on the demo floor for attendees to see later.

  • Special Poster/Demo Session: HotWeb 2006 will feature a “boaster” session for demos during the regular conference technical session. Each participant will have 10 minutes to give an overview of their system to generate interest among attendees for in-depth discussions on the demo floor.

  • Poster/Demo Venue: HotWeb 2006 will provide space for the installation of posters and a limited number of live demos in a space adjacent to the main conference sessions. Attendees will be encouraged to visit the demo space during breaks from the technical program and in a dedicated demo session. Support will be provided including tables for setup, electrical power, and wireless networking as available generally to the workshop program.
