Call for contributions

Goal

The ICSE Technical Briefings program provides conference participants with the opportunity to gain new insights, knowledge, and skills in a broad range of areas of software engineering. The audience includes both academic researchers and industry practitioners. Technical Briefings offer a venue for communicating the current state of a timely topic related to software engineering. As opposed to in-depth tutorials in more mature fields, Technical Briefings should provide a compact introduction to the state-of-the-art in an emerging area.

Technical Briefings will take place in 90-minute slots on the day before the main ICSE conference (Tuesday, May 29th, 2018).

Evaluation

The Technical Briefings committee will review each proposal and will select quality proposals that fit the evaluation criteria. Each proposal will be evaluated on its anticipated benefits for prospective participants in industry and academia and its fit within the program as a whole. Factors to be considered also include: relevance, timeliness, importance, and audience appeal; suitability for presentation in a 90-minute format; effectiveness of teaching methods; and experience and qualifications of the presenters.

How to submit

Proposals should include a title, a description of the topic, a paragraph explaining why the topic would be of interest to a broad section of the software engineering research community and industry, and the names and short biographies of the speakers. A proposal should be no longer than 2 pages. In addition to the proposal, at least 3 representative 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. Submissions should be submitted electronically through the online easychair site.

Acceptance

The presenters of each selected Technical Briefing will have the opportunity to publish a 2-page abstract in the ICSE 2018 Companion proceedings. The abstracts must be sent by the deadline of February 12, 2018. They must conform to the ACM formatting guidelines. and must not exceed two pages, including all text, references, appendices, and figures.Further, upon acceptance, all presenters will be encouraged to provide a short (1-2 minute) video describing their presentation topic to be placed on the ICSE website for publicity purposes.
