Evaluation Process

The evaluation and selection process of the demos will happen in two steps.

In the first step, the authors submit papers describing the main characteristics of their demos. The submitted papers will be analyzed by at least 3 members of the Program Committee, based on originality of the demo, practical contribution, technical soundness and presentation.

In the second step, the selected demos will be presented during the conference, when they will be analyzed again by members of a Judging Committee. This second evaluation aims at guaranteeing that the demos are operational and functionally compatible with their descriptions.

The results of both evaluations will be used by the Judging Committee to choose and *reward the best demo*.


The Demos Session will be held in two days during SBBD2009. One of the authors of each
Demo should be present at the conference both for presenting the Demo (slides) and for
a hands-on demonstration of the software. Additionally, each accepted demo should have
a poster. The size of each poster should be of 0.70 cm x 1.00 m (width x height). Each
poster should include:
- the name of the demo
- authors names and affiliations
- information about financial support, if applicable
- contact e-mail and URL for further information about the software
- the summary and main characteristics of the demo
- main references.

We encourage the authors to use their own laptops to carry out hands-on demonstrations.
If necessary, upon request in advance (when submitting the camera ready version), specific equipment may be available for installing the tools and their respective development platforms.
