RTSI 2016 » Young Professional Event

Young Professional Event - Call for demos and posters

The IEEE Young Professionals (YP) program focuses on young people, i.e. up to fifteen years from the first degree and with an option to participate beyond the fifteen year span. YP is an international community of enthusiastic, dynamic and innovative members and volunteers and IEEE is committed to helping YP evaluate their career goals, polish their professional image, and create the building blocks of a lifelong and diverse professional network.

The 2nd RTSI forum, bringing together leading representatives from politics, industry and academia to foster technological innovation and excellence in all the fields of primary interest for IEEE, including power systems, electronics, informatics, automation, and computer engineering, offers a great opportunity to YP to be on the stage showing advancements in their fields. Hence, the RTSI’16 forum includes a "Poster and Demo Session" that is focused on YP. Demonstrations are intended as a forum for showcasing the state of the art in a broad range of fields that include all the themes belonging to RTSI.

The focus will be on innovative prototype implementations, systems and technologies in this research fields. 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 YP the opportunity to discuss systems, applications, prototypes, or proofs-of-concept with Senior researchers and people from industry.

All demo submissions will be automatically subscribed to the "YP Demo competition". An evaluation committee will view and score posters/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 IEEE Italy Section.

Please submit a short demo description using an abstract format (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.

Demonstrators will be given a table and a power outlet. Demo presenters are expected to bring with them everything that is needed for their demo (hardware, laptops, sensors, PCs, etc). Participants are required to present also a poster illustrating the scientific research that lies behind the demonstrator.

The deadline to submit proposals is May 15, 2016. If you are considering to submit a contribution, send an email to demo.rtsi16@gmail.com with the following information:

  • Title of the contribution
  • Authors with affiliations
  • Presenter (must register to the forum)
  • Demo requirements (e.g. internet connection, space needs)
