The Dearborn Artificial Intelligence Research (DAIR) Center ( will organize its annual symposium, DAIS ’20 (, on November 30th and December 4th. DAIS ‘20 includes. DAIS ’20 includes poster/demonstration sessions to present and discuss AI works in progress, industry demonstrations of AI new applications or techniques, research demonstrations and test beds, AI research challenges, future directions, and novel approaches. 

One of the key goals of the posters and tools demo sessions is to encourage collaborations between industry and academia within AI areas that can benefit the society in multiple domains such as transportation, healthcare, supply chain, smart cities, e-commerce, manufacturing, robotics, bots, maintenance, etc. Participation of researchers and practitioners from industry to present posters/tools demonstration reporting on joint work between industry and academia are therefore especially encouraged. The track is a highly interactive venue where researchers and practitioners can demonstrate their tools and discuss them with attendees.

Posters need to be about ongoing work with interesting results, yet can benefit from community feedback to evolve into a full paper at a later stage. Demonstrations should be tool-based and describe novel aspects of early prototypes or mature tools. The tool demonstrations must communicate clearly the following information to the audience:

  • the envisioned users;
  • the AI challenge it proposes to address;
  • the results of validation studies already conducted for mature tools

The recorded and live streaming posters and tools demo will be presented during sessions of one hour, and more details will be provided upon selection. The participants are expected to prepare a pre-recording of up-to 10 min of the poster/tool demo and participate in the live streaming session to answer the questions from the audience and interact with them.


Up-to 2 best poster/demo awards will be selected. The award amount is US$ 1,000.00. The selection process of the best posters/demos will be handled by a committee composed by the poster/demo session chairs and 5 academic or industry experts that will evaluate proposals based on the following criteria (but not limited to): 

  • the relevance of the proposed demonstration for the AI audience;
  • the technical soundness of the demonstrated tool;
  • the originality of its underlying ideas;
  • the quality of the optionally provided video, code, and datasets;
