Demo papers should contain a substantial presentation of the system to enable a proper evaluation of the techniques used. The content of papers should be sufficiently substantial for publication in the conference proceedings. The demo paper should be submitted through EasyChair, while the demo link should be submitted through the Challenge Website, after which it will be publicly available immediately.
