Demonstrations provide researchers and practitioners with an exciting and interactive opportunity to present their systems, artifacts and/or research prototypes, either at a regular session or at the technical exhibition. In any case, it is required to avoid a commercial format, even if the demo consists of presenting a business product or service. Instead, the presentation should focus on technical aspects.
Any written support materials may be distributed locally but not published in the proceedings. Authors who already present a paper at the conference may apply for a demonstration, to complement but not to replace their paper presentation. Demonstrations can also be made by sponsor companies or as a mixed initiative involving researchers and industrial partners.
Demonstrations are based on an informal setting that encourages presenters and participants to engage in discussions about the presented work. This is an opportunity for the participants to disseminate practical results of their research and to network with other applied researchers or business partners.

Concerning the format of the demo, we can accommodate it either as a demonstration in a booth (physical area of 4 sq. meter, with a table and 2 chairs) at the exhibition area, as a poster or as a 20 min oral presentation at a session especially set up for demonstrations. It is also possible to organize the presentation of the same demo in more than one format. Please contact the event secretariat.

MetisCBR - A Distributed Case-based Approach for Search of Similar Building Designs


Viktor Eisenstadt
University of Hildesheim
Brief Bio
The demo will contain the presentation of MetisCBR, a retrieval application with case-based agents and agent groups
(containers) for search of similar architectural building designs in a case base of such designs. The application prototype was developed in context of the research project Metis that aims to support the early phase of architectural design process. An ICAART 2016 paper "Thinking With Containers: A Multi-Agent Retrieval Approach for the Case-Based Semantic Search of Architectural Designs", that will be presented as a poster, describes MetisCBR in detail. This demo is intended to be an additional presentation way of the application and will demonstrate the current stage of the development.
