ISSTA 2019
Mon 15 - Fri 19 July 2019 Beijing, China


The ACM SIGSOFT International Symposium on Software Testing and Analysis (ISSTA) 2019 Tool Demonstration Track serves as a venue for publishing and presenting advances in software testing and analysis tools that aid either practice, research, or both. Submissions may describe early prototypes of tools, mature tools, and everything in between. To help disseminate tools to the community, we encourage submissions describing previously unpublished tools whose underlying techniques may have already been published.

Highlighting scientific contributions through concrete artifacts is a critical supplement to the traditional research papers published at software engineering venues, including ISSTA. A demonstration provides the opportunity to communicate how the scientific approach has been implemented or how a specific hypothesis has been assessed, including implementation and usage details, data models and representations, and APIs for tool and data access. Authors of regular research papers at ISSTA or other conferences are thus also encouraged to submit an accompanying demonstration paper. The demonstration papers should be original, however, substantial improvements or extensions to existing tools are also encouraged. Tool papers must not be concurrently under review at ISSTA or at another venue.

Call for Submissions

The ACM SIGSOFT International Symposium on Software Testing and Analysis (ISSTA) 2019 Tool Demonstration Track serves as a venue for publishing and presenting advances in software testing and analysis tools that aid either practice, research, or both. Submissions may describe early prototypes of tools, mature tools, and everything in between. To help disseminate tools to the community, we encourage submissions describing previously unpublished tools whose underlying techniques may have already been published.

Highlighting scientific contributions through concrete artifacts is a critical supplement to the traditional research papers published at software engineering venues, including ISSTA. A demonstration provides the opportunity to communicate how the scientific approach has been implemented or how a specific hypothesis has been assessed, including implementation and usage details, data models and representations, and APIs for tool and data access. Authors of regular research papers at ISSTA or other conferences are thus also encouraged to submit an accompanying demonstration paper. The demonstration papers should be original, however, substantial improvements or extensions to existing tools are also encouraged. Tool papers must not be concurrently under review at ISSTA or at another venue.


The tool demonstrations must communicate clearly the following information:

  • the tool’s envisioned users
  • the software testing and analysis challenge(s) the tool addresses
  • how the tool is used
  • either results of conducted validation studies or the design of planned studies

Evaluation

Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the demonstrations program committee. The evaluation criteria include:

  • the relevance of the proposed demonstration to the ISSTA audience
  • the technical soundness of the demonstrated tool
  • the originality of the underlying ideas
  • the quality of its presentation
  • the comparison to related work

How to Submit

Submissions must conform to the ACM Conference Format. A tool demonstration submission may not exceed four pages, including all text, figures, and references. A submission may not have been previously published in a demonstration form. The paper submission must be in PDF. The Tool Demonstration track will be using the single-blind reviewing model, so the submitted PDFs should identify the authors.


Submit your papers via the ISSTA Tool Demonstration 2019 submission website by May 4, 2019, 23:59:59 AoE.
