> As part of the 2009 Electronic Voting Tech Workshop/Workshop on
> Trustworthy Elections (EVT/WOTE 2009), we would like to hold a system
> demonstration session. We envisage this session as an opportunity for
> workshop participants to examine and "play with" voting system
> implementations (or functioning prototypes). The format will be
> similar to a poster session, with space allocated for each system and
> participants walking between the different demonstrations. The demo
> session is mainly aimed at new or non-traditional voting systems (such
> as implementations of end-to-end verifiable systems), but if space
> allows we may also include demonstrations of existing systems.
>
> If you would like to demonstrate a system, please email the following
> details to the EVT/WOTE chairs (evtwote09chairs@usenix.org):
>
> 1. Name of the system
> 2. Short abstract
> 3. Demo requirements (e.g., space, power, network, etc.)
>
> There is no hard deadline for proposals, however we would appreciate
> hearing from you as soon as possible so that we know how much space
> we'll need (if we cannot accommodate all the demos, earlier proposals
> will receive preference).
