The track provides an opportunity to demonstrate and discuss emerging IT artifacts with researchers and practitioners. Submissions for the Products & Prototypes Track should comprise the following sections in no more than 5 pages:

  • Introduction
  • Design of the artifact (e.g., problem statement, use cases, intended user groups, list of features)
  • Significance to research (e.g., innovativeness of the artifact)
  • Significance to practice (e.g., usefulness of the artifact)
  • Evaluation of the artifact (e.g., in laboratory or field settings)
  • If available, screencast of or link to an implementation of the artifact

Accepted regular submissions (full papers only) will be published in the DESRIST conference proceedings (Springer LNCS). For formatting guidelines for accepted papers please refer to Springer LNCS formatting guidelines.

 

Special Instruction for Product & Prototype:

The presentation of the product & prototype paper compromises two activities:

  • A 2 minutes elevator pitch in front of the DESRIST audience with a 1-slide PowerPoint
  • Prototype demonstration, e.g. on your laptop, and a poster.

We ask all authors of a products & prototype paper to prepare and send the following items to desrist2018@wmail.iitm.ac.in until May 1, 2018:

  • A 1-slide PowerPoint summarizing your paper (incl. title and author names)
  • A DIN A0 Poster addressing your research (using the provided PowerPoint template)

We will provide you with a poster stand in the conference venue. You need to bring your own poster and laptop.
