IEEE SECON 2009 will include poster/demonstration sessions that shall provide a forum to present and discuss: works in progress, industry demonstrations of new applications and techniques, practical implementations, industrial and commercial developments, research testbeds and demonstrations, recent research/implementation results, upcoming research challenges, future directions, and novel approaches in the fields of sensor, mesh and ad hoc communications and networks. One of the key goals of this conference is to foster collaboration between industry and academia. Hence, participation of researchers/developers from industry and posters/demonstrations reporting joint work between industry and academia are especially encouraged. Submissions should be in the form of a proposal describing the main contributions of the poster/demo and the merits of the proposed ideas. If available, preliminary results can also be included. Proposals will be evaluated mainly based on their potential to stimulate interesting discussions, exchange of ideas and promote collaborations. Submissions should not be more than three pages (preferably IEEE conference format, 2-column) in length. Demonstration submissions should include the space requirements and/or any other equipment-specific requirements. The documents must contain the authors' names, affiliations, and contact information and the designated corresponding author. Accepted authors of posters/demos will have a space in the poster/demo session room to display their posters or exhibit their demos and describe their work in discussions with interested attendees. Moreover, the abstact of the accepted posters/demos will appear in IEEE Xplore. IEEE Communications Society policy states that all accepted IEEE SECON 2009 posters/demos require at least a one day registration. For authors co-authoring multiple posters/demos, a one day registration is valid for up to three presentations. In addition, there needs to be at least one person per poster/demo registered for one day by May 9, 2009 in order for the abstract to appear in IEEE Xplore. Please submit the proposal via EDAS at Any questions can be addressed to Poster/Demo Co-Chairs Antonio Capone ( and Suman Banerjee ( Antonio Capone and Suman Banerjee IEEE SECON 2009 Poster/Demo Co-Chairs
