ICSE 2015 call for contributions to

Workshop Proposals

Scope and Goal

The 2015 International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) Workshops provide a forum for a group of 20-50 participants to discuss topics in software engineering research and practice. ICSE Workshops will provide opportunities for researchers to exchange and discuss scientific and engineering ideas at a stage before they have matured to warrant conference or journal publication. ICSE Workshops also serve as incubators for scientific communities that form and share a particular research agenda.

ICSE 2015 Workshops may be either one or two days long and may be held before or after the main conference. Participation in ICSE workshops is typically open. ICSE workshops can produce workshop proceedings to be published in the electronic ICSE proceedings.

Proposal Submissions

Proposals must not exceed five pages in length, must follow the ICSE 2015 formatting and submission instructions and must include the following information, in the order specified:

4 pages

  • full contact information for all organizers of the workshop and main contact person;
  • desired length of the workshop (i.e., one or two days);
  • desired workshop date(s) and scheduling constraints (workshops can be scheduled before or after the main conference);
  • outline of the themes and goals of the workshop, including a brief abstract (less than 200 words) intended for the ICSE 2015 web site;
  • concise motivation of the workshop's relevance to the field of software engineering;
  • participant solicitation and selection process, including whether the workshop will be open or closed;
  • desired minimum and maximum number of workshop participants, expected number of participants, and (in case of previously held workshops) number of registered attendees and web site for previous editions of the workshop;
  • structure of the workshop and plans for generating and stimulating discussion;
