ICSE 2025
Sat 26 April - Sun 4 May 2025 Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

Call for tutorials

The following information is tentative and will be finalized later

ICSE 2025 expects to incorporate a small number of tutorials intended to help software engineering researchers improve their knowledge of cutting-edge software engineering topics, useful tools and technologies or research methods.

Tutorials at ICSE 2025 will be held between Saturday April 26 and Tuesday April 29, 2025 or Saturday May 3 to Sunday May 4 2025 in Ottawa, Canada.


Tutorial proposals must include the following information

  • Title
  • Presenters names
  • Summary paragraph that will be used to publicize the tutorial in the program
  • Target audience (e.g. PhD students, early career researchers, all researchers, practitioners)
  • Justification for novelty of the tutorial or why ICSE attendees would be likely to want to learn the material and hence want to register for it
  • Learning objectives
  • Outline of topics to be covered
  • Information about any hands-on component (e.g. where attendees will actually use a tool or do an exercise), and what kind of computer would be needed for this.
  • Planned length of the tutorial (normally Half day (2.5-3 hours including a break). Full day tutorials will not be ruled out, but very strong justification must be provided. Shorter tutorials that take the form of technical briefings (1 to 1.5 hours) will also be considered.
  • Bios of the presenters, including evidence that they are experts in the area, and have teaching expertise
  • Sample presentation material (5-15 slides)
  • Preferred dates (we cannot guarantee the choices of dates)
  • Other sessions the presenters hope to attend (to enable the organizers to try to avoid conflicts)

By submitting your proposal to an IEEE Event, you are hereby acknowledging that you and your co-authors are subject to all IEEE Publications Policies.

Submissions format: To be determined

Proposal Review Criteria

The ICSE tutorials committee will select a small set of tutorials based on the following:

  • Overall quality of the proposal
  • Relevance to the conference
  • Level of interest they believe the tutorial will attract
  • Experience of the presenters
  • Avoidance of duplication

The decision about tutorials will be made by the tutorial chairs, and a small committee, in consultation with experts on the relevant topics that are on the committees of other ICSE 2025 tracks.


ICSE 2025 is not able to pay for travel, or other arrangements for tutorial presenters. Tutorial presenters must register and pay for at least one other day or days of the conference. Tutorials of 3 hours or longer will not be required to pay for the day of their own tutorial. Tutorials of 1 or 1.5 hours that attract at least 25 pre-registrations by the early registration deadline will also not be required to pay for their tutorial day.

Accepted presenters must inform the tutorial committee if they have to present papers in other sessions (ICSE tracks or workshops or co-located conferences), so that conflicts can be avoided to the greatest extent possible.

ICSE 2025 reserves the right to not accept any tutorial presentations.

ICSE 2025 reserves the right to ask potential tutorial proposers to submit additional material before their tutorial is accepted.

ICSE 2025 reserves the right to cancel any tutorial that receives fewer than 4 registrations by the early registration date.

Important Dates (Tentative)

  • Tutorial Proposal Submissions Deadline: 15 June 2024
  • Tutorial Proposal Acceptance Notification: 14 August 2024 (or possibly earlier)
