ICSE 2014 Call for Papers - Tutorials and Technical Briefings

Goal and Scope

ICSE Tutorials and Technical Briefings enable industry and academic researchers to share their ideas and work and learn about the state of the art and practice in Software Engineering. ICSE 2014 presents an excellent opportunity for researchers and professional software engineers to present their work and educate their colleagues about new technologies and methods at the tutorials and technical briefing track. Tutorials are typically scheduled for half‐day or full day and they include comprehensive presentations on well‐established topics, which may include hands‐on exercises on using various software engineering tools. Technical briefings are shorter than tutorials and they last 90 minutes. While tutorials go into considerable depth, technical briefings give quick holistic overviews of interesting emerging topics with a concentration on fundamentals and projection about the future of these topics.

Accepted Tutorials and Technical Briefings
