Posters and Informal Demonstrations
The ICSE 2012 Poster and Informal Tool Demonstrations Track provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present, show-case, and discuss their most recent advances, experiences, and challenges in the field of software engineering in an informal setting. As the top software engineering venue, ICSE is known to provide an excellent environment for discussions from which new ideas and solutions can emerge.
Poster submissions are intended to stimulate discussions of recent advances, experiences, and challenges as well as cutting-edge ideas, in the field of software engineering. Informal tool demonstrations are intended to show implementations of novel software engineering concepts. Authors of the New Ideas and Emerging Results (NIER) and the Doctoral Symposium (DS) tracks are thus particularly encouraged to submit an accompanying poster and informal tool demonstration paper.
Each submission will be reviewed by at least two members of the program committee. The main evaluation criteria include the relevance and quality of the proposed posters and informal demonstrations in terms of originality, relevance for the ICSE audience, technical soundness, and presentation quality.
How to Submit
Submissions comprise an extended abstract of two pages (in ICSE 2012 proceedings format) and the poster in A0 portrait format (841mm x 1189mm). The extended abstract describes recent advances, experiences, challenges or cutting-edge ideas in the field of software engineering. Submissions must be clearly indicated as posters by preceding the title of the extended abstract with "Poster", for example "Poster: New Advances in Software Engineering".
Informal research demonstration submissions
Submissions comprise an extended abstract of two pages (in ICSE 2012 proceedings format) and a description of the demonstration (see below). The extended abstract describes the implementation of novel software engineering concepts. Submissions must be clearly indicated as informal research demonstrations by preceding the title of the abstract with "Informal Research Demonstration", for example "Informal Research Demonstration: The Toblerone Analyzer".
Furthermore, each informal research demonstration submission is accompanied by either max. two pages that present 1-2 typical usage scenarios of the tool (including screen shots) or a video that shows these usage scenarios. The video must not exceed 5 minutes in length and the submission must clearly indicate the URL where the video is available.
All submitted materials (papers, posters, demonstration descriptions) must be in pdf.
All papers must conform at time of submission to the ICSE 2012 formatting and submission instructions, and must not exceed two pages, including all text, references and figures.
Papers must be submitted electronically by the deadline stated below.
