ASE 2009 Call for Research Tool Demonstrations

Software Engineering is concerned with the analysis, design, 
implementation, testing, and maintenance of software systems. Automated 
software engineering focuses on how to automate these tasks in order to 
achieve improvements in quality and productivity. Tool support, 
therefore, is central to this. The 24th IEEE/ACM International 
Conference on Software Engineering (Auckland, New Zealand, Auckland 
16-20th November 2009) invites submissions for its tool demonstrations 

The ASE tool demonstrations track provides an opportunity for 
researchers and practitioners to present and discuss the most recent 
advances, experiences, and challenges in the field of automated software 
engineering with the goal of allowing live presentation of new research 
tools. Tools can range from research prototypes to in-house or 
pre-commercialized products.

The demonstrations are intended to highlight underlying scientific 
contributions. Whereas a scientific paper is intended to give the 
background information and point out the scientific contribution of a 
new software engineering approach, the tool demonstration provides a 
good opportunity to show how the scientific approach has been 
transferred into a working tool.

Demonstrators will be expected to give a presentation that will be 
scheduled into the conference program. There will also be a 
demonstration area open to attendees at scheduled times during the 
conference, during which demonstrators are expected to be available. 
Accepted demonstrations will be allocated 2 pages in the main conference 
proceedings. Presentation at the conference is a requirement for 
publication. Authors of regular research papers are also welcome to 
submit an accompanying tool paper.

Submissions of proposals for formal tool demonstrations must:

- adhere to the conference proceedings format: 

- have a maximum of 2 pages that describe the technology or approach, 
how it relates to other industrial or research efforts, including 
references, and describe what the expected benefits are (these two pages 
will appear in the proceedings)

- have an appendix (not included in the proceedings, but used by the 
committee to evaluate potential demonstrations) that provides a 
description of how the presentation will be conducted, screenshots that 
may be used in the presentation, information on tool availability and 
maturity, and a pointer to a web-page for the tool (if one exists)
