    Submission deadline (firm)
  • June 30, 2006

OOPSLA demonstrations are the ultimate show and tell sessions for your state-of-the-art systems, languages, environments, tools, and applications!

As for past OOPSLAs, live demonstrations this year will be an outstanding vehicle for sharing the technical dimensions of your work.

Demonstrations focus on presenting novel and interesting technical details in a dynamic forum where executing systems are coupled with interactive presentations. The Demos Track in 2006 is a tremendous opportunity for both companies and universities to showcase their latest and greatest to an experienced and technically savvy audience.

Demonstrations will be selected on the basis of technical merit, relevance, novel features, and feasibility of presentation at OOPSLA. Projects demonstrated can be work in progress, commercial applications, proof of concepts, results of academic research, tools, systems or any topic that is of interest to the OOPSLA community.

Demonstrations are intended to highlight, explain and present the technical dimensions of hot new work. Demonstrators are encouraged to actively solicit feedback from the audience--ensuring that we have very interesting and entertaining demonstration sessions!
