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.

Following the first three editions of the conference in Batumi, Georgia in 2013, in Chisinau, Moldova in
2014 (originally scheduled for Odessa, Ukraine), in Constanta, Romania, in 2015, and the next edition of
the conference will take place on 6-9 June 2016 in Varna, Bulgaria - a beautiful Black Sea resort.

IEEE BlackSeaCom 2016 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 2016 key topics
  • Demos from industrial researchers

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • OpenFlow and Software Defined Networks
  • Communication and Information Theory
  • Cloud Communications and Data Center Networks
  • Mobile and Wireless Communications and Networking
  • Internet of Things and Sensor Networks
  • Optical Networks and Systems, Radio over Fiber
  • Smart Grids, M2M and Vehicular Networks
  • Cognitive Radio and Networking
  • Social Networking, eHealth, and Multimedia Applications
  • Security, Privacy and Trust
  • Future Internet and Testbeds
  • Green Communications and Networks
  • Network Management
  • Signal Processing for Communications

Submission Guidelines
To be published in the IEEE BlackSeaCom 2016 Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication 
in IEEE Xplore (only for demo), an author of an accepted demo is required to register for the conference at 
the full (IEEE member or non-member) rate and the demo must be presented by an author of that demo
at the conference.

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 2016.

Submit a demo via EDAS by filling out this form here using paper paper format defined here for IEEE
Conference Proceedings

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.
