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.
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.
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.
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
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 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.
