Presentation and Objectives

The SBRC Demo Session is a meeting forum for developers and researchers interested in the architecture, implementation, and practical assessment of systems and tools that contribute to the advancement of knowledge in computer networks and distributed systems. For a more practical purpose, there is an emphasis on demonstrating systems and tools, on the experience of their development, on issues of implementation and use, and the perspectives created by them.

The 2021 edition of the Demo Session will be held in Uberlândia, MG, as part of the grid of activities of the 39th Brazilian Symposium on Computer Networks and Distributed Systems (SBRC 2021).

Topics of Interest

All works that present systems and tools that can contribute to the advancement of knowledge in computer networks and distributed systems are of interest to the SBRC Tools Salon. In general, the topics of interest are, initially, the same as those of the main SBRC track that includes:

  1. Distributed algorithms
  2. Distributed and networked applications
  3. Distributed storage and ledger
  4. Architecture and characterization of networks and services
  5. Blockchain e distributed ledger technologies
  6. Smart Cities
  7. Data-intensive computing (big data), data analysis, and mining
  8. Mobile Computing
  9. Cloud, fog and service-oriented computing
  10. Social Computing
  11. Ubiquitous, pervasive, and context-sensitive computing
  12. Urban Computing
  13. Performance, scalability, and reliability
  14. Detection and prevention of anomalies and attacks
  15. Network engineering and traffic control
  16. Protocol specification, validation, and verification
  17. Identity, address and location management
  18. Network management, operation, design and analysis
  19. Internet of things and cyber-physical systems
  20. Future Internet
  21. Network measurement and monitoring
  22. Middleware
  23. Cross-layer optimization
  24. Quality of service (QoS) and Quality experience (QoE)
  25. Autonomous and self-organizing networks
  26. Cellular Networks
  27. Information-Centric Networking

  46. Fault tolerance and resilience
  47. Networking Function Virtualization
  48. Networking Virtualization

Instructions to authors

The tools must be presented in an article that must be submitted exclusively electronically, through the JEMS System. Articles can be written in Portuguese or English and submitted only in PDF format. Each article is limited to 8 pages, including an abstract, figures, diagrams, references, and annexes. Papers must be formatted according to the SBC article model.

The article must contain the following information:

  1. Description and motivation of the problem addressed by the tool;
  2. Solution architecture and description of the main functionalities;
  3. URL where the tool is available;
  4. URL of tool manuals and documentation;
  5. URL with a video explaining the installation and features of the tool;

Also, we request that the authors send a document, up to 2 pages, describing the planned demonstration for the SBRC and informing the necessary equipment for this.

The requested information and the effective existence of the indicated URLs are indispensable for the evaluation of the works. The video is mandatory. Its purpose is to assist reviewers and readers who, for some reason, have difficulty installing and using the tool. It is recommended to use a free website for uploading videos such as Youtube or Vimeo.

The Demo Session proceedings published on the SBC OpenLib Platform (SOL), the digital library maintained by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC), and free of charge to the society. 


Tool Requirements

The Demo Session addresses experimental results and functional systems/tools available for use. Although works in progress are accepted, it must be possible for them to be demonstrated and available at a URL along with their documentation at the time of article submission.

All accepted tools must be demonstrated and also presented in the conventional format of SBRC technical sessions.



The evaluation process will consider the quality, relevance, and innovation of the practical results, its documentation, the explanatory video, the submitted article, and the proposed demonstration for the SBRC 2021 Demo Session. A specific committee will choose the best tool among those accepted.
