Call for Demos
DASFAA is an annual international database conference, located in the Asia-Pacific region, which showcases state-of-the-art R&D activities in database systems and their applications. The DASFAA 2014 Demo program aims to bring together researchers, developers, and database users from the data management and Web communities. It offers an exciting and highly interactive way of demonstrating your databases, systems, services, middleware, and Web research and is an excellent way of advertising the applicability of your results. Proposals for demonstrations of products or prototypes based on innovative research results are solicited.
It is mandatory that all demo proposals describe clearly what will be demonstrated and how the contributions will be illustrated interactively. Optionally, proposals can include a URL that shows a preliminary version of the demo (e.g., screen shots or, even better, an interactive program).
A BEST DEMO AWARD will also be given out to the best demo(s) presented in the demo session during the conference.
