ICSE 2023
Sun 14 - Sat 20 May 2023 Melbourne, Australia

ICSE is the premier software engineering conference, but its programs in recent years have not covered the breadth of activities needed to engineer software. In particular, early-phase software-engineering activities, which typically involve non-code artefacts, have been sorely underrepresented – including:          

  • requirements engineering
  • software architecture and design
  • software modelling
  • formal analyses


The aim of the Showcase track is to increase the representation of these four topics in the ICSE 2023 program and to showcase some of the best recent work in these areas. This track will feature invited presentations by authors of best papers published in the top conferences associated with the above activities:


The papers to be presented will be chosen by the steering or program committees of these conferences.  The committees of each conference will be invited to provide a ranked list of the best papers published in the most recent editions of their conferences. The Showcase chairs will then invite authors of these papers (prioritized by rank of paper and diversity of authors) to welcome three invited presentations from each conference for a total of twelve presentations. The Showcase presentations will be blended into the ICSE 2023 program with paper presentations on related topics from other ICSE tracks.
