The IEEE BlackSeaCom Conference on Communications and Networking, sponsored by the IEEE Communications, is held in the countries surrounding the Black Sea. The IEEE BlackSeaCom is organized with the objective of bringing together visionaries in academia, research labs and industry from all over the world to the shores of the Black Sea.
IEEE BlackSeaCom 2015 will feature a special demonstration session showcasing the latest technological advances in all areas of communications and networking technologies. The demonstration session will provide an exciting forum for researchers, 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 application are particularly encouraged to participate.

In particular, we are seeking the following types of contributions:
  • Demos from student authors about the concepts presented in their paper(s)
  • Demos from all other authors of accepted contributions in the main conference and workshops
  • Demos from faculty and academic research groups related to IEEE BlackSeaCom 2015 key topics
  • Demos from industrial researchers
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Information theoretic analysis of wireless networks and theoretical analysis frameworks
  • Communication protocols (transport, routing, link, and physical layers)
  • Cross-layer design and optimization
  • Theoretical analysis frameworks
  • Resource management
  • Energy efficiency, resiliency, reliability, and robustness
  • Deployment scenarios and experiences
  • Integration of heterogeneous networks
  • Infrastructures, Platforms, test beds, and software
  • Wireless networks, Ad hoc and mesh networks, Wireless sensor networks
  • Massive MIMO, Millimeter wave and Terahertz communications
  • Microwave devices
  • Communication in challenging environments (underwater, underground, tunnels/mines, space, disasters)
  • LTE/LTE-Advanced and beyond
  • Nano-scale networks
Submission Guidelines
Prospective demo participants should fill out and submit the application form describing the demonstration, and listing requirements (e.g. space, power, instruments, networking, etc.). All submitted applications will be reviewed and decisions will be based on the degree of appropriateness and quality for IEEE BlackSeaCom 2015. All presenters for each selected demo must register for the conference.
The applications should be submitted via email to the Demos Co-chairs, Larysa Globa ( or Alexander Schill ( by March 29, 2015. Please consult the demonstration organizing committee via email if you are uncertain whether your demonstration falls within the scope of the conference or if you require additional information.
Accepted demonstrations will be presented at the conference during a special demonstration session. The presenter is responsible for the demonstration and equipment setup. Each demonstration can be accompanied by a poster or presentation describing it. The presenter is expected to stand next to the exhibit and discuss the work with other conference attendees.
  • Demonstrations submission deadline: March 29, 2015
