Prototypes Track

Prototype Demonstration Opportunity (Research and Teaching):
This year we have added an exiting new category for submissions to BAC 2015. Proposals for prototype demonstrations are invited for submission to BAC 2015 that highlight various aspects of the prototype such as novelty, architecture, functioning, ongoing and future work, etc.  Prototypes could be related to teaching as well as research applications. Examples of such prototypes could be (but not limited to) original web application, mobile apps, a functional analytics model, devices (such as IoT) connected to data science applications, teaching games that have an integrated study or analytics component. 

This high visibility category is different from paper presentation category and provides an opportunity to display your artifact to an interactive audience. Prototype demonstration will involve a poster display (printed or electronic) and/or live demonstration of prototype to the attendees. 

The proposal are expanded abstracts and are to be limited to two pages in length (or 800 words). Submissions should indicate on the top that they are "prototype demonstrations". Proposal submissions and queries must be sent to Ashish Gupta: gupta@utc.edu and Amit Deokar: avd108@psu.edu with subject line “BAC 2015 Prototype Proposal". Submission due date: Tuesday, September 15th, 2015 midnight PST.

These demonstrations will be evaluated at the conference by a panel of judges. Best and runner up prototypes for teaching as well as research demonstration categories will be recognized at BAC 2015.
