Demonstrations provide researchers and practitioners with an exciting and interactive opportunity to present their systems, artifacts and/or research prototypes, either at a regular session or at the technical exhibition. In any case, it is required to avoid a commercial format, even if the demo consists of presenting a business product or service. Instead, the presentation should focus on technical aspects.
Any written support materials may be distributed locally but not published in the proceedings. Authors who already present a paper at the conference may apply for a demonstration, to complement but not to replace their paper presentation. Demonstrations can also be made by sponsor companies or as a mixed initiative involving researchers and industrial partners.
Demonstrations are based on an informal setting that encourages presenters and participants to engage in discussions about the presented work. This is an opportunity for the participants to disseminate practical results of their research and to network with other applied researchers or business partners.

Concerning the format of the demo, we can accommodate it either as a demonstration in a booth (physical area of 4 sq. meter, with a table and 2 chairs) at the exhibition area, as a poster or as a 20 min oral presentation at a session especially set up for demonstrations. It is also possible to organize the presentation of the same demo in more than one format. Please contact the event secretariat.

Brief Bio
Bethany Bracken is a Principal Scientist at Charles River Analytics. At Charles River, she currently works on projects using neurophysiological and physiological sensing methods to assess human states such as stress, focused attention, and cognitive workload and to predict upcoming performance deficits to allow time to enact augmentation strategies to optimize that performance. Dr. Bracken has a B.S. in Psychology from Clarion University of Pennsylvania, and a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Brandeis University. Before joining Charles River Analytics, Dr. Bracken completed a postdoctoral fellowship, quickly followed with a promotion to the faculty level, in the Department of Psychiatry at McLean Hospital and Harvard Medical School.

Access to human physiological, neurophysiological, and behavioral signals (biosignals) can revolutionize health solutions, scientific research across multiple fields, and everyday interaction between thedigital and human worlds (e.g., through the internet of things, “smart” technologies, smartphone apps).One of the earliest capabilities to extract biosignals from humans were ECG recordings [1]. Since thentechnology has been constantly evolving into a growing list of sensors capable of enabling a deeperunderstanding of the human physiological and cognitive state. Still, there are a great number ofchallenges, both technical and methodological, that need to be tackled.
