Research demonstrations enable conference participants
to view research systems in action, and to discuss the systems with the
who created them. These demonstrations are intended to show early
implementations of novel software engineering concepts and are
suitable for mature presentations that can be communicated effectively
to a large audience using projection technology. In addition, formal
demonstrators are expected to be available for additional informal
demonstrations to participants.
Research demonstrations are suitable for mature
formal demonstrator will be presented during a formal presentation session.
Additionally, informal demonstration to participants must be provided in
Commercial products will also be considered as formal research
demonstrations. The criteria used for evaluation of commercial
products however will be different from the academic research
demonstrations criteria (see Evaluation).
Each submission will be reviewed by at least
two members of the research demonstrations committee.
The research demonstrations 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. In addition, for commercial
proposals, we will consider issues such as likelihood of being
world-changing and likelihood of being of interest to researchers
(e.g., open source, well documented, extensible, free for academic
The format of formal research demonstration
proposals may be Adobe Portable Document Format or Postscript and should
respect the ICSE two column format.
Formal Demonstration submissions should consist of a single document with
the following three parts. The first part, at most four
should describe the tool presented. An additional two
should explain how the demonstration will be carried out and what it will
show. Up to four pages of screen dumps, well-captioned,
may also be attached, as needed, to illustrate the demo narrative.
Submissions for this category are closed.
Research Demonstrations final camera ready
papers will be two pages
long (in the ICSE format).
The author of the accepted demonstrations will
be expected to:
a formal presentation of the technical characteristics of the tool
during a session of the conference. Two data projectors will be available,
so that a live demonstration and the slides can be projected at the
> be available for informal
demonstrations during a separate time slot, for
a period of 3 hours in a venue equipped for small-group informal
demonstrations. This will provide ICSE attendees and demonstrators with
opportunities for stimulating one-on-one interactions.
We will not provide any computing equipment
such as computers, disk drives, or monitors. We will, however, provide
basic electronic projection capabilities during the formal demonstration
and desks for the informal demonstrations.
