IEEE iThings 2013/CPSCom 2013/GreenCom 2013 August 20-22, 2013 Beijing, 

Call for Demos and Exhibitions

Call for Cybermatics Creative Video Contest 

Deadline: June 10, 2013

Please take notice to the following submissions.
Paper authors are welcome to submit their work to these as well.

1. Call for Demos and Exhibitions

The IoT/CPSCom demo and exhibition program provides researchers and 
engineers with opportunities to show their cutting-edge work presented 
in an interactive fashion. The live demonstrations and exhibitions may 
include implementations of techniques presented in the main conference, 
workshops, other conferences and venues, as well as systems and video. 
We encourage companies or other commercial entities or laboratories to 
participate in showcasing their products. Prospective applicants should 
submit a 2-page paper of the demonstration/exhibition in the IEEE CS format
(http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting) via email 
(cpscom2013demo at live.com). Video demonstrations are also welcome.
The main selection criteria will be the expected general interest of the 
demonstration to the cyber physical system and social computing 
community. The accepted demo/exhibition will be included in the 
IoT/CPSCom conference proceedings. As a condition for acceptance, at 
least one of the people must be registered for the main conference, and 
present the demo in the conference with a poster and optional video. We 
will print out the poster in the conference if the demonstrator sends it 
beforehand in electronic format. All demos will compete for the Best 
Demo Award.

The conference will at minimum provide a space for your demo, a poster 
stand, a table and chairs, and a power connection (220V). If you need 
any special equipment you should provide that by yourself, including 
power converters, projectors, audio amplification, wireless LAN 
routers/access points, etc. Please specify your demo requirements on a 
separate page so that we can plan the demo area accordingly.

Demo/Exhibition Chairs:
Dr. Pin Tao, Tsinghua University, China (taopin at tsinghua.edu.cn) Dr. 
Kongqiao Wang, Nokia Research Center, China (kongqiao.wang at nokia.com)

2. Call for Cybermatics Creative Video Contest

It is believed that the frontier of information science is increasingly 
characterized by not only catching up with the human intelligence (e.g.
intelligent sensing, and making decision and control), but also learning 
much from the nature-inspired attributes (e.g., dynamics, 
self-adaptability, and energy saving). Among such research areas, a 
newly-emerged interdisciplinary, Cybermatics (i.e., cyber technology) as 
we call here, includes three main aspects:
Internet of Things (IoT), cyber, physical and social computing, and 
green computing and communications.

The Cybermatics Creative Video Contest is a call for works from academia 
and industry for digital videos that involve any video work, information 
design and digital animation work about the concept of cyber technology. 
The content within the video must be related to cyber technology, IoT 
and big data, and demonstrate how it can produce a great impact on the 
future of human life.

We welcome video submissions from at home and abroad, and from any 
academic, business, education and government circles to take part in the 
"Cybermatics Creative Video Contest".
Please submit your video that conforms to the following specifications to
cpscom2013video at gmail.com:

- Video size: HD (1920×1280), or SD (1280×720).
- Video format: AVI, WMV, MOV, MP4
- Video time: Up to 5 minutes.
- Deadline: June 10, 2013
- Notification of Acceptance: June 30, 2013

Please also include the title of your video, the team members and 
affiliation, and an abstract of up to 150 words that explains your 
video, what makes it is applicable to cybermatics, and how it can help 
improve human life.

For inspiration, see an example of a cybermatics video called "A Day 
Made of Glass" from Corning:

The contest will happen in two phases:
1) The videos are evaluated according to creativity, relevance and 
impact, and choose the top 5 videos.
2) The selected 5 videos will be exhibited in the conference, where each 
author will give a 30 second pitch as to why his/her video should be the 
winner. The conference attendees will then vote for the winner.

Cybermatics Video Chairs:
Ning Wang, Beihang University, China
Jun Fei, Chinese Academy of Fine Arts, China
