Some tips

The demo consists of a poster (printed by CELF), with a few sentences talking about a tool, technology or distribution and a table top where you can place anything from:

  1. nothing at all, just have a person sitting there to talk to people about what's on the poster, or ...
  2. something on a laptop - like a program running or a even a static chart showing some result
  3. something running on a board or a device
  4. something on an actual CE product

You can also put some flyers there for people to grab, if you'd like.

If you can put charts and graphs on the poster, that's nice but it is NOT required. Neither the poster nor the hardware (if any) needs to be elaborate or require lots of setup. One year I showed up with a camcorder and just talked to people about it's bootup time (which I had worked on).

If you are a presenter, the demo session is a good chance to talk to people one-on-one about your session topic. This gives you more time for interactive Q&A, and a chance to show something hands-on, if that applies to your subject.

How to apply

  1. Send an e-mail to the coordinator with the following information.

  1. Q: Is this opportunity limited to CELF members?

    • A: No. You do not have to be a forum member to have a demo at the conference. However, each demo should be associated with a paid conference attendee.
  2. Q: Is the demonstrator required to make a presentation at the conference?

    • A: No, this is not required. However, we believe there will be many people who will to be interested in details of the technology, so we hope that you can have a session. Please note that the due date for a session proposal is earlier than the due date for demo sign-up.
  3. Q: Should I assign some dedicated staff to carry on the demonstration?

    • A: No, this is not necessary. There will be a dedicated time slot for the demos that will be separate from the other technical sessions. So there should be no conflict between the demo session and the other technical sessions.
  4. Q: Is there any fee to demo something in this session?

    • A: No, it is completely free. However, the session is limited to conference attendees, so please register for the conference if you would not otherwise do so. If you have someone coming who will ONLY run or assist with your demo, and not attend any sessions, then that person may be admitted for free, for just the demo session (and setup and take down). However, each demo should be associated with at least one registered attendee.
