Open Until August 31
Lightning Talks



Chair: Ken Bauer ITESM, Campus Guadalajara, demos@oopsla.org


OOPSLA demonstrations is your opportunity to show your work rather than just talk about it! We give you the opportunity to show your latest work to an experienced audience. This can be work in progress, commercial applications, proof of concepts, results of academic research, tools, systems or any topic that has interesting object-oriented aspects. Demonstrations are not focused on selling a product but to highlight, explain and present the technical aspects of it. Demonstrators may actively solicit feedback from the usually very technically savvy audience. In the past, this has made for some very interesting demonstration sessions.

Presenters of accepted demonstrations will also be expected to provide a two-page summary description to be published in the OOPSLA Conference Companion.

For additional information, clarification, or answers to questions, please contact the Demos Chair, Ken Bauer at demos@oopsla.org
