Call for Demostrations
The objective of the ICSA 2024 Demonstrations Track is to excite the software architecture 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 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:
- the envisioned users;
- the software engineering challenge it proposes to address;
- the methodology it implies for its users;
- the novelty of the tool; and
- the results of validation studies already conducted for mature tools, or the design of planned studies for early prototypes.
EvaluationEach submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the demonstration selection committee. The evaluation criteria include:
- the relevance of the proposed demonstration for the ICSA audience;
- the technical soundness of the demonstrated tool (for a tool demo)
- the originality of its underlying ideas;
- the quality of its presentation in the associated video; and
- the degree to which it considers the relevant literature and state of practice.
How to SubmitSubmissions must conform to the IEEE paper formatting and submission instructions and must not exceed 4 pages, inclusive of all figures, tables, references, appendices, etc.. To be included in the conference proceedings, the submissions must conform to the author instructions as well as to the IEEE Guidelines for Artificial Intelligence (AI)-Generated Text . Other Submissions not conforming to these instructions may be reviewed and presented at the conference, but will not be included in the proceedings.
A demonstration submission may not exceed four pages (including all text, references, and figures). Each submission MUST be accompanied by a short video (between three and five minutes long) illustrating the demonstration. The video should be made available online at the time of submission. Videos should
- provide an overview of the tool’s capabilities and/or dataset characteristics;
- walk through (some of) the tool capabilities and/or data analysis process;
- where appropriate, provide clarifying voice-over and/or annotation highlights; and
- be engaging and exciting for the watcher! A submission may not have been previously published in a demonstration form.
The paper submission must be in PDF. Papers must be submitted electronically through EasyChair by January 06, 2024. (The submission webpage will be opened 3 months before the submission deadline).
At the end of the abstract, 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.
For examples of previously successful short videos, please see the examples from [ICSE 2018] https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6g5MCGbJtUF1iW4RSPvUtbKkemrVYrkP.
