Solutions Showcase sessions are for brief demonstration-style presentations in an informal and intimate setting.
A Solutions Showcase can be used to demonstrate research-related software, tools, platforms, portals, visualisations, learning aids or other resources, and/or their application in specific case studies. Demonstrations that can be linked to other specific elements of the conference program, such as oral presentations, posters, sessions or displays, are encouraged.
Each presenter is allocated 15 minutes, including a minimum of 5 minutes for questions and discussion.
Presenters are encouraged to take questions during the course of their demonstration. As time is limited, it is recommended more detailed discussions and issues are followed up one-to-one after the session.
The Solutions Showcase sessions are typically scheduled to utilise the lunch and tea breaks, with audience members able to bring their food and drinks to the session.
Submissions consist of a short summary abstract, generally less than a page.
Submissions are reviewed for interest and relevance to the conference audience, as described in the Abstract selection and notification process.
Tutorial style presentations and demonstrations of relevant commercial products will be considered if they meet the review criteria. Solutions Showcase is not intended to be a substitute for other categories of submission, such as belated oral presentations.
