Demos and Posters

Call for Demos and Posters

The GTTI MMSP 2016 meeting includes a Poster, Demo and Exhibit Session. Demonstrations are intended as a forum for showcasing the state of the art in Multimedia Signal Processing. The focus will be on innovative prototype implementations, systems and technologies in this research field.
Demos can be considered as real, practical, and interactive proof of the presenters’ research ideas and scientific or engineering contributions, with the goal of offering researchers and practitioners in the area of multimedia processing the opportunity to discuss systems, applications, prototypes, or proofs-of-concept. This setting allows meeting attendants to view and interact with innovative solutions and ideas; and to witness leading-edge research at work. Participation of interested people from industry and the community is encouraged. Please contact the organizers in case you wish to participate without attending the workshop.
Demonstrators will be given a table and a power outlet. If the demo requires access to the Internet, please contact the organizers in advance. Demo presenters are expected to bring with them everything that is needed for their demo (hardware, laptops, sensors, PCs, etc).
The purpose of the Posters is to offer an overview of research in the area of GTTI MMSP 2016. Workshop participants are encouraged to present a Poster, which may describe results that have already been presented in other major conferences or events.


Awards

All research demo submissions that have a student as leading author will be automatically subscribed to the Student Research Demo competition of GTTI MMSP 2016. An evaluation committee will view and score the demos and select one for Best Demo Award. Demos will be primarily judged on originality, execution, and illustration of the core research ideas. The 500 € prize is sponsored by the GTTI.
The competing demonstrations will present applications of multimedia signal processing. Demonstrations are expected to highlight research ideas and their potential effects on the state of the art or the market in a concise, effective and clear fashion.

Best Demo Award
  • RoboEye: a Wheelchair Plugin for Mobility Enhancement, Malvina Leuci, Luca Maule, Alberto Fornaser, Mariolino De Cecco (Università degli Studi di Trento),  Alfredo Armanini (Xtensa s.r.l.), Nicola Conci, Francesco De Natale (Università degli Studi di Trento)
  • Exploiting Silhouette Descriptors and Synthetic Data for Hand Gesture Recognition, Ludovico Minto, Alvise Memo and Pietro Zanuttigh (Università di Padova)


Submission

Submissions are encouraged in all areas related to multimedia signal processing. Please submit a short demo or poster description/extended abstract (max. 1 page in English) describing the scientific or engineering concepts behind the work, the novelty of the work and how the work differs from existing systems/techniques. For demos, please also provide a description of what will be actually shown during the demo session.
If you are considering to submit a contribution, send an email to lttm@dei.unipd.it with the following information:
  • Title of the contribution
  • Authors with affiliations
  • Presenter (must register to the workshop)
  • Demo requirements (e.g. internet connection, space needs)
  • A PDF file with a short description/extended abstract
The deadline for submissions is December 20, 2015.
