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. So presenters should provide comprehensive notes written in clear, standard English. Idioms, irony, slang and culture-specific references should be avoided as far as possible. Finally, please submit your Tutorial proposal in plain ascii. This is essential so that we can have it reviewed quickly and easily.

The ICSE Tutorials 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. Proposals for full-day (6-hour) or half-day (3-hour) tutorials are solicited. A tutorial can cover 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.

Tutorial proposals will be evaluated on the basis of their anticipated benefit for prospective participants and their 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.

Submit tutorial proposals (of ten or fewer pages) by plain text e-mail to the tutorial chair, shown below. The ICSE web pages (http://sunset.usc.edu/icse99) contain detailed information on format, length, and style of presentation. In brief, proposals should include a title, proposer’s contact information, tutorial aims and objectives, duration (full- or half-day), purpose and scope, and summary of material to be covered.

November 15, 1998. Accepted tutorials will have 2 pages for a Proceedings-format summaryin the Proceedings.
