ICSE 2015 call for contributions to

Technical Briefings Proposals

The Technical Briefings Program is now available


The ICSE Technical Briefings program provides conference participants with the opportunity to gain new insights, knowledge, and skills in a broad range of areas of software engineering.

Technical Briefings offer a venue for communicating the current state of a timely topic related to software engineering. As opposed to in-depth tutorials in more mature fields, Technical Briefings should provide a compact introduction to the state-of-the-art in an emerging area.

Technical Briefings will take place in 90-minute slots on the day before the main ICSE conference (Tuesday May 19, 2015).


The Technical Briefings committee will review each proposal and will select quality proposals that fit the evaluation criteria.

Each proposal will be evaluated on its anticipated benefit for prospective participants and its fit within the program as a whole. Factors to be considered also include: relevance, timeliness, importance, and audience appeal; suitability for presentation in a 90-minute format; effectiveness of teaching methods; and past experience and qualifications of the presenters.

How to submit

Proposals should include a title, a description of the topic, a paragraph explaining why the topic would be of interest to a broad section of the software engineering community, and the names and short biographies of the speakers. A proposal should be no longer than 2 pages.

Together with the proposal, at least 3 typical sample slides from the intended tutorial presentation must be submitted.

The proposal, as well as the sample slides, must be submitted in PDF with all fonts included.

Submissions will be managed through CyberChairPRO available at this link: http://cyberchairpro.borbala.net/icsetechnicalbriefings/submit/


The presenters of each selected Technical Briefing will have the opportunity to publish a 2-page abstract in the ICSE proceedings. The abstracts must be sent by the deadline of  February 13, 2015. They must conform to the ICSE 2015 formatting and submission instructions and must not exceed two pages, including all text, references, appendices, and figures.
