ICSE 97 Posters

Posters Coordinator:
Debra J. Richardson, University of California, Irvine (USA)

Posters provide an excellent opportunity to show late-breaking results and ongoing work or finished results during the conference. Note that not all types of work in software engineering can be presented effectively using posters during the conference. Prospective submitters should carefully consider how their work may be presented.


15 February 1997
5:00 p.m. (17:00) PST.

Review Process

Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of experts in the field using the standard ICSE criteria: originality, importance and generality of contribution, soundness of rationale or demonstration, quality of written and graphic presentation, and appropriate citation of relevant literature.


Authors should prepare a four page description of their poster for review. The description should provide: (a) a summary of the technical content of the poster and (b) a description of how the material will be presented on the poster.

Upon Acceptance

Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by the end of March 1997.

At the Conference

Posters will have display space (approximately 2.5 m by 1.2 m), with a table for other materials, optionally including an informal demonstration and/or videotape. Author(s) will be expected to be present at scheduled times for informal discussions at their posters. (The conference will not provide any electronic equipment for demonstration or presentation of cd-rom or videotapes; use and security of such equipment is fully the authors' responsibility.)

Ground Rules

  1. The poster should effectively communicate the material without the presence of the author, as posters will remain posted throughout the entire conference. Dedicated interactive poster sessions, where presenters will be available at their posters to discuss the work and answer questions will be scheduled during conference breaks and other appropriate times.
  2. Your submission must be in English.
  3. Electronic and fax submissions are not accepted.
  4. Submissions which arrive after the deadline will not be considered.
  5. Your submission should contain no proprietary or confidential material and should cite no proprietary or confidential publications. Your submission should not be a demonstration of a commercial product.
  6. Responsibility for permissions to use video, audio or pictures of identifiable people rests with you, not ICSE 97.
  7. If your submission is accepted, it will not be published without copyright release forms signed by the first-listed author or a representative of the first author's institution.
  8. We strongly suggest the use of express mail or a courier service, for speedy delivery. Customs labels should bear the words "Educational materials with no commercial value."


Please follow the steps in this checklist to ensure completeness of your submission.

  1. Read the Invitation To Submit.
  2. Fill out Cover Page One.
  3. Prepare an Informal Sketch of the poster for review, as described above.
  4. Collect Cover Page One and the Sketch in a packet; make 6 copies of the packet. Use 8.5 x 11 inch or A4 paper.
  5. Make sure each copy of the packet is STAPLED, not loose or held by clips.
  6. You may include a self-addressed reply postcard which will be mailed to acknowledge receipt of your submission.
  7. Send the 6 copies of your submission packet and the reply postcard, to the Posters Coordinator at the Send To address shown below.
