ICSE 2004 invites the submission of high-quality posters and informal demonstrations to enable conference participants to view research systems in action and to discuss the systems with the people who created them.


The Informal Demos and Poster program complements the main program by offering an opportunity for authors to present late-breaking or as-yet incomplete research results, or significant work-in-progress.

Review Process

The Informal Demonstrations and Posters Committee will review each submission using the standard ICSE criteria: originality, importance and generality of contribution, soundness of rationale or demonstration, quality of written and graphic presentation, and appropriate consideration of relevant literature.

Commercial products will not be accepted as subjects of informal demonstrations. A system that is destined to be a commercial product, but will not be available for sale for at least six months, may qualify as a formal research demonstration. Informal demonstrations are not intended to be sales pitches, however, and thus should highlight the technical contributions. For further clarification, please contact the Informal Demos and Posters Chair.

How to Submit

Poster authors are required to submit a two-page proposal summarizing the work and the results. Poster proposals will be judged on relevance, originality and significance. The proposal should describe the substance of the work, not how the work will be displayed. It may include a small number of references, and even a figure or two. It is advisable to include an email address and a URL leading to more information about the work.

Posters proposals should be in PDF format (no more than 2 pages).

Proposals for informal demos should briefly describe the technology or approach, how it relates to other industrial or research efforts, including references, and the expected benefits. It is advisable to include an email address and a URL leading to more information about the work.

Proposals for informal demos should be in PDF format (no more than 2 pages).

Accepted Demos and Posters

Accepted proposals will be given poster / demonstration space in an exhibit area during the conference. At least one author must register for the conference. There will be designated hours during which the author(s) are expected to be at their assigned space to present their work. Posters will be on display during the conference in a poster room.
