Panel Proposals


October 16, 2000 for panel proposals.
December 1, 2000 for notification.
February 1, 2001 for final copy of two-page panel summary.


ICSE panel sessions serve to stimulate discussion about ideas and issues of importance to the software engineering community.


Panels may emphasize complex technical issues, or they may provide an opportunity to air views and address controversies through informed debate. Suitable topics for discussion include pressing issues in software engineering theory and practice, emerging industrial trends and enabling technologies, and professional, organizational, and social issues associated with software engineering. Panels last about ninety minutes and can be organized in many formats.

Review Process

The technical program chairs will review each panel proposal. We are looking for stimulating and timely proposals that focus on topical issues and include well-informed and engaging panelists. We encourage proposals of original panel formats that will engage the panelists and audience in lively and substantive discussions.

In brief, a panel proposal should contain the following:

  • a description of the topic, stating the issues to be discussed, and their relevance to software engineering;
  • a description of the panel format, stating how the panel will be conducted and why the proposed format is suitable for the proposed topic;
  • a list of the panelists and their credentials.
