FORMAL RESEARCH DEMONSTRATIONS

DEADLINE
January 4, 1999

AIM
Formal research demonstrations enable conference participants to view research systems in action and to discuss the systems with the people who created them. Research demonstrations are intended to show early implementations of novel software engineering concepts. Proposals will be evaluated on the basis of potential, originality, and promise for bringing new and exciting ideas to the conference.

SCOPE
Formal research demonstrations are intended for mature presentations that can be communicated effectively in front of a large audience using projection technology. Formal research demonstrations will be 40 minutes long. In addition to the formal demonstrations, booths will be provided in the demonstration room to allow informal demonstrations throughout the conference. Commercial products will not be accepted as research demonstrations (see Exhibits). We consider any system that is at least six months away from appearing in a commercial product as a “research system.”

REVIEW PROCESS
Submissions will be reviewed 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.

COMPUTING AND PROJECTION EQUIPMENT
The conference will not provide any computing equipment such as CPU's, disk drives, displays for demonstration or presentation. Basic electronic projection capabilities will be provided.

HOW TO SUBMIT
Authors should submit a four-page description of their research demonstration proposal for review. More detail will be provided soon.

ACCEPTANCE NOTIFICATION
February 15, 1999. Accepted demos will have 4 pages for a Proceedings-format summary in the Proceedings.
