Software demo

This year for the first time, we will also accept software demonstrations to be presented during the poster session. A prospectus (maximum 1-page) may be sent directly to, and should include: name of software tool, background and a brief description of functionalities. Concurrent full papers submissions to the conference describing the software are allowed but not required.
