Demos/posters are invited for all areas covered by the main conference and the two workshops. Researchers are invited to submit a demo/poster for a paper already submitted to any conference session (you still must follow the instructions below to prepare and submit your work for this session. If accepted, a separate registration by at least one author is required). Demos/posters not associated with a paper are also encouraged.

A best demo/poster award will be granted by DMS 2014 based on the demo/poster's innovation, technical contribution, and presentation.

Please clearly state if any additional arrangements are required in a footnote to the demo/poster paper.
