Submission Instructions

Submissions should be a three-page minimum (max 4 pages) summary that follows the IEEE formatting guidelines (standard 2-column IEEE article layout) :  refer to the IEEE submission instructions for details. All submissions will be subject to peer review, according to IEEE policies.

Be as specific as possible in describing what you will demonstrate or display as demo. Demonstrations should be based on technical achievements and prototypes at a research stage (i.e. no pre-commercial or product demonstrations are allowed).

A complete submission should be three pages minimum in length (4 pages maximum) and proposal summary that will include the following:

  • A 35-word abstract
  • An Overview section giving a full description of the research and technologies to be demonstrated
  • An Innovation section describing the problem and novelty of the approach in solving it
  • A section describing the relevance for MeditCom explaining why the MeditCom audience and communities should be interested in this demo
  • The demo summary should explain the objective and contents of the demo, and detail its configuration and main elements. The objective should be to demonstrate an innovative application, a working prototype or a novel concept.
  • A section describing the demo processing and how it could be shown if online.
  • A section describing the material requested for the demo (tables, poster, screen, etc).
  • When possible a link toward a video of the demo.

The  proposal summary demo session will take place physically (locally) and/or online, depending on the conference type (physical or hybrid). Summaries of accepted demos will be included in the IEEE MeditCom 2022 Proceedings. Accepted and presented summaries will be submitted to IEEE Xplore®.
