NeurIPS 2020 Call For Demonstrations

We invite the submission of demonstrations to be presented at the Neural Information Processing Systems Conference 2020, to be held as a virtual conference December 8-12, 2020. Accepted demonstrations will be presented in a virtual forum, in parallel the main conference. There will be a NeurIPS award given for Outstanding Demonstration.

Demonstration Proposal Submission Deadline:

The date DemonstrationApplicationDeadline not found. 

Demonstrations offer a unique opportunity to showcase:

  • Interactive applications of learning algorithms

  • Dialog and conversational AIs

  • Learning from demonstration

  • Real-time visualization of learning models

  • Hardware technology

  • Algorithmic art and creative AI

  • Generative models for audio or video

  • Robotics

Demonstrations must show novel technology and must run online during the conference. Unlike poster presentations or slide shows, interaction with the audience is a critical element. Therefore, the creativity of demonstrators to propose new ways in which interaction and engagement can fully leverage this year’s virtual conference format will be particularly relevant for the selection. 

 

SUBMISSIONS

Demonstration proposals must be submitted via CMT at: 

https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/DEMONeurIPS2020/

You are asked to submit a 2-page extended abstract which describes:

  • the technology demonstrated

  • the elements of novelty

  • the audience-interactive part

  • any special needs or equipment required to run the demo virtually 

  • A concrete description of how the demo will run virtually, please be creative!! Examples are provided for inspiration below.

Please follow the standard NeurIPS 2020 Latex template (https://neurips.cc/Conferences/2020/PaperInformation/StyleFiles) when preparing the 2-page extended abstracts, and ensure that all information listed above is included in your extended abstract. Demo reviews are single blind, i.e., demo proposal submissions do not have to be anonymized.

Clarification / update: references/bibliography do not count towards the page count.

Submissions will be refereed based on technical quality, novelty, and potential for interaction, with a special focus on interaction in a virtual conference setting.
