Call for Panels

ICSE panel sessions serve to stimulate discussion about ideas and issues of importance to the software engineering community. They provide an opportunity to air views and address controversies through informed discussion and debate. Suitable topics for discussion include pressing issues in software engineering theory and practice, emerging industrial trends and enabling technologies, and professional, educational, organizational, and social issues associated with software engineering.

Panels last about ninety minutes and can be organized in many formats.

Selection Process

Panel proposals are reviewed and selected by the Panels Chair in consultation with the General Chair and the Program Chairs. 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.

Submission Process

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.

The format of panel proposals (two pages or fewer each) may be ASCII text (plain or HTML), or Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

Proposals must be submitted via e-mail to the Panels Chair.

Each accepted panel will have a two-page summary in the conference proceedings. This summary must conform to the proceedings publication format. The final camera-ready copy must be accompanied by a signed copyright release form.
