The objective of the ICSE 2014 Formal Demonstrations Track is to excite the software engineering community about new advances in our field through compelling demonstrations that help advance research and practice. The track is a highly interactive venue where researchers and practitioners can demonstrate their tools and data sets and discuss them with attendees.
Tool-based demonstrations describe novel aspects of early prototypes or mature tools. The tool demonstrations must communicate clearly the following information to the audience:
Data set-based demonstrations, which must be based on publicly available data sets, must communicate:
Highlighting scientific contributions through concrete artifacts is a critical supplement to the traditional ICSE research papers. A demonstration provides the opportunity to communicate how the scientific approach has been implemented or how a specific hypothesis has been assessed, including details such as implementation and usage issues, data models and representations, APIs for tool and data access. Authors of regular research papers are thus also encouraged to submit an accompanying demonstration paper.
Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the demonstrations selection committee. The evaluation criteria include:
Submissions must conform to the ICSE 2014 formatting and submission instructions. In particular, submissions of formal demonstrations papers must meet the following criteria.
Papers must be submitted electronically at the ICSE submission site by November 22, 2013. At the end of the abstract (both in your submitted PDF and in the EasyChair textbox), please append the URL at which your demo video can be found. Please note that for consistency we require that ALL videos be uploaded to YouTube and made accessible during the time of reviewing. Authors of successful submissions will have the opportunity to revise both the paper and the video (and its hosting location) by the camera-ready deadline (March 14, 2014).
For examples of previously successful short videos, please see the following:
