> Goal

The ICSE tutorial program provides conference participants with the opportunity to gain new insights, knowledge, and skills in a broad range of areas of software engineering. Participants at the tutorials include software practitioners, managers, teachers, researchers, and students seeking to gain a better understanding of software engineering.

> Scope

We are soliciting proposals for full-day (6-hour) or half-day (3-hour) tutorials. The tutorial contents can be selected from a wide range of topics, from practical techniques, guidelines, standards, and surveys, to theoretical issues. We encourage tutorials that reflect the conference themes and provide clear utility to practitioners. The topics are not limited to past ICSE tutorial offerings.

Tutorials are intended to provide independent instruction on a topic of relevance to software engineers. Therefore no commercial or sales-oriented presentations will be accepted. Potential presenters should keep in mind that there may be quite a varied audience, including novice graduate students, seasoned practitioners, and specialised researchers. They should be prepared to cope with this diversity unless they make clear that the tutorial is oriented to a particular subgroup. Also bear in mind that not everyone will have English as their first language. Thus, presenters should provide comprehensive notes written in clear, standard English. Idioms, irony, slang and culture-specific references should be avoided as far as possible.

> Evaluation

The tutorials committee will review each proposal and will select quality proposals that fit the criteria mentioned below.

Each tutorial proposal will be evaluated on its anticipated benefit for prospective participants and its fit within the tutorial program as a whole. Factors to be considered also include: relevance, timeliness, importance, and audience appeal; suitability for presentation in a half- or full-day tutorial format; effectiveness of teaching methods; and past experience and qualifications of the instructors.

> Submission

Tutorial proposals must conform to the proposal template. Together with the proposal, three sample slides from the intended tutorial presentation must be submitted.

The proposal as well as the sample slides must be submitted in PDF, with all fonts included.
Proposals not conforming to these instructions will not be considered.

Submissions for this category are closed.

> Publication / Presentation

Each accepted tutorial will have two pages for a summary in the conference proceedings. This summary must conform to the proceedings publication format. Tutorial presenters will have to sign a contract with the ICSE organizing committee, regulating her/his duties and the rules of reimbursement (see below).

> Reimbursement

Reimbursement for half-day tutorials is US$350. Full-day tutorials are reimbursed at US$700. In addition, actual travel and lodging expenses are reimbursed up to US$1000 per tutorial with a limit of two nights lodging. Reimbursement and travel expenses must be shared among the speakers if two or more speakers present the tutorial. Conference fees are not waived for tutorial presenters.
