Research Demos

We invite high-quality contributions to the ICSE'09 Research Demonstrations track. Research demos are expected to present implementations of tools for innovative software engineering techniques and processes. Any of the ICSE'09 topics of interest are appropriate areas for research demonstrations.

The format of the track has changed from prior years, so authors are requested to read carefully the submission procedure and related information.

How to Submit

Authors can choose to submit in one of two sub-tracks.
  • Formal Demos with Formal Papers
    This is the traditional "ICSE Research Demos" submission style. Authors need to submit a description of the research tool of up to 4 pages, optionally followed by a 2 page demo script and up to 4 pages of screenshots. Submissions will be rigorously reviewed, considering both the tool value and the research value of the described artifacts. Submissions accepted as "formal demos with formal papers" will be allocated a dedicated presentation slot and 4 pages in the main ICSE electronic proceedings.

  • Formal Demos with Informal Papers
    Authors need to submit a 2-page description of their research tool, optionally followed by supplementary material, such as a 2-page script and up to 2 pages of screenshots. Submissions will be reviewed for tool quality, relevance, and value to the community. Due to the brief description, tools should be of clear practical impact to the Software Engineering community. Industrial contributions are highly encouraged in this sub-track. Submissions accepted as "formal demos with informal papers" will be allocated a dedicated presentation slot and 2 pages in the ICSE Companion proceedings.

After review, the committee may decide to accept submissions from either of the above sub-tracks as "informal demos".

Informal Demos will be allocated 2 pages in the ICSE Companion proceedings and a shared presentation slot, with all informal demonstrations taking place in an single common setting.

Submissions should be made electronically via CyberChair.

For further information, please see format.
