The demo track provides a forum to researchers, developers, and technologists to present first-hand experience of software systems, prototypes, conceptual designs, libraries, etc., in an interactive setting. The prospective submissions would have a novel solution to a problem exhibited either through prototypes or operational systems. Demos are invited for all domains of innovations: Data, Algorithms, and Applications. The submissions would include a short paper (maximum 4 pages, unlimited references ) as well as a link to the demo that would be showcased at the event. The demonstration session provides a forum to researchers and developers to display their software systems, prototypes, conceptual designs, libraries, etc., in an interactive setting. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Data Science
- Machine Learning
- Artificial Intelligence
- Text analytics and NLP
- Computer Vision
- Information Retrieval
- Social Network Analysis
- Recommender Systems
- Online Advertising
- Psycholinguistics and Social Sciences
- Computational Neuroscience
- Systems Biology
- Multimedia processing
- Crowdsourcing
- Education
- Healthcare
- Robotics
- Technology for Emerging Markets
- Bioinformatics
- Digital Marketing

The submission must describe the technical innovation that has produced the demonstrated system. It must also include the ​ specifications, literature references, and optionally a URL to screenshots or an online version. The submissions will be carefully reviewed by the Demonstration Program Committee and be selected based on various factors such as novelty, relevance to CODS-COMAD, potential impact, technical challenges being addressed, and practical applications

Submission Format

The submissions should not exceed 4 pages including references and should be formatted in the standard ACM style available at the​ ACM Master Article Template​ . The submissions should be made via ​ Easychair. The submission deadline is October 1st, 2018 and the notifications will be sent out by November 1st, 2018. Please contact ​ Dr. Niyati Chhaya​ or ​ Dr. Parth Gupta​ for further queries.

The publication of the demo in the proceedings in optional. Therefore, even if an author intends to publish their work somewhere else, they can demo their work in this session and opt out of the proceedings. Students will receive generous funding for attending the conference to showcase their demos.
