ICSE 2002 Workshop Proposals


ICSE workshops are forums for small groups to engage in intellectual discussions that aim to significantly advance the state of software engineering research. To foster dialog, the ideal group size is twenty. Group size can range as high as forty, but at the cost of limiting the opportunities to engage all participants in meaningful discussions.


ICSE workshops are not mini-conferences. They are not forums for full research papers. Full papers should be submitted to the main ICSE conference. Nor should workshops be organized like conferences, in which formal presentations dominate. At least half of the time should be devoted to discussion.


A workshop is either open or closed. An open workshop will accept any participant up to the agreed enrollment limit for the workshop. Participation in a closed workshop is to be by invitation only, typically on the basis of a submitted position paper. Registration in the closed workshops will be limited to those on lists of invited participants provided to ICSE 2002 by the workshop organizers.


ICSE workshops are held before and after the main conference. Workshops are one, one and a half, or two days long. The acceptance of a workshop proposal does not guarantee that the requested times will be accommodated. Scheduling and other constraints might in some cases require that actual workshop dates and durations be changed or shortened. We assume that submitters are available to run workshops on any of the days that ICSE has scheduled for workshops.


A committee will review each proposal. Acceptance will be based on an evaluation of the potential to advance the state of software engineering research, expected level of interest in the topic, the organizers' ability to lead a successful workshop, and the need of ICSE 2002 to achieve balance and synergy in its workshop offerings.


ICSE 2002 will publish pre-workshop summaries in the ICSE Proceedings. ICSE 2002 will also work with workshop organizers to reproduce informal proceedings for each of the accepted workshops. Some workshop organizers might wish to produce published proceedings. Such arrangements may be pursued; however ICSE 2002 will not become involved in any such efforts.


ICSE 2002 will support for the reproduction of informal workshop proceedings and the pre- and post-workshop summaries. ICSE 2002 will not pay for registration, travel, or other arrangements for workshop organizers or any of their invited guests. All participants in workshops must register. How to Submit

Workshop proposals should be submitted in two parts, each one no longer than one page, and each in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). The first part is a brief workshop title and abstract, suitable both for proposal evaluation and for early posting on a web site pending production of an official call for participation or papers. The second document is to provide supporting and logistical documentation.

  • A brief abstract including the following:
    • workshop title and organizers
    • a statement of the theme and goals of the workshop
    • statement of how the workshop can advance software engineering research
    • the desired, minimum and maximum number of workshop participants
    • whether the workshop would be open or closed
    • an overview of the participant solicitation and selection process
  • Supporting administrative and other documentation
    • requested workshop date(s) and duration, and any schedule constraints
    • requested equipment, room capacity and organization, and materials
    • brief description of each organizer's background, including experience with past workshops, and whether the organizers have conducted ICSE workshops before
    • an indication that, if your proposal is accepted, you agree to the following:
      • to produce a pre-workshop summary of up to two pages in a timely manner for publication in the ICSE proceedings, copyright ACM
      • similarly to produce a post-workshop summary for publication
      • to conform to common deadlines for submission of position papers and notification of acceptance (if applicable)
    • to limit the lengths of papers solicited or presented to five pages


Each accepted workshop will have two pages for a summary in the conference proceedings. This summary must conform to the proceedings publication format. The final camera-ready copy and signed copyright release form are due TBA. Each workshop will also produce a post-workshop report. These reports are due TBA.
