July 15, 1998

Workshops provide a forum for a group of (typically 25 to 40) participants to exchange opinions on topics in research and/or applications. Workshops are held either before or after the conference and may be one, one and a half or two days in length. Workshops are not alternative forums for full papers, which otherwise could be submitted to ICSE. Participation in a workshop typically depends on submission of a position statement. Deadlines for submissions to accepted workshops will be posted after September 25, 1998 on the ICSE web site ( and elsewhere.

Workshop proposals will be reviewed by a committee representing a cross section of software engineering researchers and practitioners. Acceptance will be based on an evaluation of the workshop's potential for generating useful results, the timeliness and expected interest in the topic, and the organizers' ability to lead a successful workshop.

Submit a three-page proposal by plain text e-mail to the workshop review committee. A workshop proposal should contain:

  1. an outline of the theme and goals of the workshop and its relevance to the field;
  2. a description of the desired number of participants, the participant solicitation and selection process, pre-workshop activities, planned workshop activities including length of time and required rooms, and expected workshop outputs;
  3. a brief description of each organizer's background, including relevant past experience with workshops, and whether the organizers have conducted ICSE workshops before.

September 25, 1998. Accepted Workshops will have 2 pages for a Proceedings-format summary in the Proceedings.
