IMPORTANT: After evaluating the current COVID-19 situation, the decision has
been made to transform LCN into an all-digital conference experience. The
conference dates remain the same. Publications will continue as planned and
there will be proceedings. Presentations of demos will be organized in a way
that is convenient for the various time zones.



IEEE LCN 2020 will feature a demo session with the aim of providing
demonstrations that validate important research issues and/or show innovative
prototypes. Authors are invited to submit technical demonstrations showing
innovative and original research. Proposals (no more than 3 pages) must be
submitted via EDAS to the LCN Demo Track, and describe the scope, significance
and required equipment. The proposal should include one page that describes
what conference participants will be able to see or experience during the
demonstration. The authors are encouraged to highlight the research component
of the demo and explicitly mention the novelty of the showcased technology/

IEEE LCN is looking for demonstrations in all topics covered by the main
conference and/or the symposium held in conjunction with LCN 2020. Research
prototypes as well as commercial products are welcome.

Demonstrations will be selected based on their merits and expected interest
from the LCN audience. A best demo award will be awarded to the demo with the
most votes from the audience.
