Final Contest Procedure


The final competition includes a session of presentation and a session of demonstration. The on-site evaluation committee is composed by PC members and professional attendants of ICWS. In the presentation session, each team has 30 minutes for presentation and questions. In the demonstration session, the teams demo their systems via Internet connection. The both sessions are attended by the evaluation committee, as well as public audiences.

Time and Schedule

  1. Please use the posted conference program on the ICWS Web site for date, starting time, and location.
  2. Time will be precisely controlled.
  3. Be sure to make your demo system running online when the demo system starts.

The Presentation Session

  1. The presentation session is organized like a conference session where one or multiple authors present their paper in about 20-25 minutes with about 5-10 minutes for questions and answers. The time used for each team will be strictly controlled.
  2. ICWS normally asks the authors to upload slides on a provided laptop. The presentations are video-typed. It is better to use the provided laptop in order to save switching time. Please consider to convert your slides into pdf for better effect.
  3. Since we have a demo session, the paper presentation should focus on technical depth and significant contributions, rather than demonstrating your implementation.
The Demo Session
  1. The conference provides a demonstration workplace for each team. A workplace has a table, several chairs and a stand for displaying a poster. Internet connection is provided.
  2. A team uses one laptop of its own for demonstration. It is required that the system should be accessible using a common Web browser. No extra equipments, such as projectors and extra screens, are provided or allowed for demonstration. If an application needs special equipments, it needs to be evaluated and approved on case by case base.
  3. The size of the poster is roughly 34in*44in (or A0).
  4. The demonstration evaluation committee members have 3 hours to check the demos. Conversations with the team members and hands-on operations on the demo systems are expected.

The Final Results

The final results will be announced at the ICWS closing session.
