  • If available, a link to an implementation or demo of the artifact

The presentation of the prototype and product demo submissions will involve:

  • A 2 minutes elevator pitch in front of the DESRIST audience with a 1-slide PowerPoint
  • Prototype demonstration, e.g. on your laptop, and a poster.

We will provide you with a poster stand in the conference venue. You need to bring your own poster and laptop.
