Call for Demos and Work-in-Progress

The 1st Blockchain, Robotics and AI for Networking Security Conference (BRAINS) takes place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on March 27-28, 2019. The conference aims at providing a forum for researchers, students, and professionals to exchange ideas, share their experiences, and discuss their research results. The Demo and work-in-Progress Track of BRAINS is an opportunity to present novel prototypes, testbeds, work-in-progress sharing the main lessons learnt from practical implementations and on-going projects. The single-track nature of BRAINS guarantees accepted and presented demos and work-in-progress a full focus of the conferences attendees. Areas of interest cover the same areas as the main track of BRAINS, see

Content of the accepted demo papers will be demonstrated through a physical demonstration during the conference. The demonstration can be accompanied with a poster. Work-in-progress will also be the occasion to develop some new ideas and new paradigms. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings under a short paper limited to 3 pages and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. We strongly encourage both academia and industry submissions. Demos accompanied with datasets are more than welcome.
