Note: WASPAA 2021 will be a fully virtual event

In addition to papers presenting theoretical and practical advances, WASPAA 2021 is seeking demonstrations of novel technologies in the field. Demonstrations at WASPAA 2021 are intended to complement the overall program of the workshop in order to present and discuss practical achievements, challenges, and performance results of innovative implementations, integrations, and prototypes.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the hybrid virtual nature of WASPAA 2021, 4 3 modes of presentations will be available to presenters:

  1. [Physical] Physical demos at Mohonk – similar to previous years.
  2. [Live Video] Demos performed over a video-conferencing platform in real time during the workshop.
  3. [Pre-Recorded] Pre-recorded video demos. The authors will answer questions about the demo on demand through the WASPAA virtual platform.
  4. [Online] Interactive web-based demos developed and hosted online by the authors. A public Internet link to access the online demo will be provided by the authors. The authors will answer questions about the demo on demand through the WASPAA virtual platform.
