Call For Papers

Tutorials address a wide range of mature topics from theoretical foundations to practical techniques and tools for automated software engineering. The general chair and organizers will decide the exact dates after all proposals have been reviewed and accepted. Tutorials are intended to provide scientific background on themes relevant to ASE’s research audience.

Instructors are invited to submit proposals for 1.5h, half-day (3h) and full-day (6h) tutorials and, upon selection, are required to provide tutorial notes on the topic of presentation in PDF. Tutorial proposals are limited to 5 pages.


Proposal submissions should include the following information:

  • Name and affiliation of the proposer/organizer (including e-mail address)
  • Name and affiliation of each additional instructor
  • Instructors’ experience in the area, including other tutorials, courses, etc.
  • Title, objective, abstract, and duration
  • Outline with approximate timings
  • Target audience, including the indication of level (novice, intermediate, expert)
  • Assumed background of attendees
  • Brief biography of each instructor (for later inclusion in publicity materials)
  • History of the tutorial (if it has been already presented; provide location, approximate attendance, etc.)
  • Audio-visual and technical requirements
  • Preferences for tutorial date, duration (1.5h, half-day or full-day), and any other scheduling constraints, with justification for full day (if a full day is proposed)

Proposals are due by May 8, 2020 and should be submitted over HotCRP (https://ase2020-tutorials.hotcrp.com/). All submissions must be in PDF format and conform, at time of submission, to the ACM Proceedings Template (LaTEX users must use \documentclass[sigconf,review]{acmart}).

Tutorial proposals will be reviewed by the ASE 2020 tutorial co-chairs Aldeida Aleti and Justyna Petke. Acceptance will be based on the timeliness and expected interest in the topic and the potential for attracting a sufficient number of participants. Note that tutorials with too few registered attendees may be cancelled.
