Call for Demos

IEEE BlackSeaCom 2024 Call for Demo Proposals
The IEEE BlackSeaCom series of conferences are held in the countries surrounding the Black Sea. The goal of the IEEE BlackSeaCom is to bring together visionaries in academia, research labs and industry from all over the world to the shores of the Black Sea. Here they will address many of the outstanding grand challenges that exist in the areas of communications and networking while having an opportunity to explore this exciting and dynamic region that has a rich history.

The 12th Black Sea Conference on Communications and Networking will take place in the beautiful city of Tbilisi, Georgia, on 24-27 June 2024, and will be hosted by the Georgian Technical University.

We seek original, completed and unpublished technical papers not currently under review by any other journal, magazine or conference. Besides the regular technical papers, the conference welcomes the submission of short papers which present work in progress and demos. IEEE BlackSeaCom 2024 will feature a special demonstration session showcasing the latest technological advances in all areas of communication and networking technologies.

The demonstration session will provide an exciting forum for researchers and developers to present and discuss new applications, techniques and prototypes. Demonstrations showcasing working systems, research and development results/challenges, novel applications, ground-breaking ideas or future directions in communications and networking are welcome. Nascent and incubating companies wishing to demonstrate emerging and innovative technologies that have potential commercial applications are particularly encouraged to participate.
