Software Engineering is concerned with the analysis, design,  
implementation, testing and maintenance of large software systems.  
WCRE 2009 (the 16th Working Conference on Reverse Engineering) is an  
internationally renowned forum for researchers, practitioners, and  
educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends,  
experiences, and challenges in the field of reverse engineering. WCRE  
brings together experts from academia and industry to exchange the  
latest research results, state of the art, and state of the practice.  
The Research Tool Demonstrations track is an important part of the  
conference with the goal to allow live presentation of new research  
tool prototypes.

Tools are central to research in reverse engineering. Hence, tool  
demonstrations will have a prominent role within the conference. We  
solicit proposals for research tool demonstrations related to software  
engineering. Tools can range from mature prototypes to fully developed  
products that are being prepared for commercialization. Commercial  
products and products that are currently being commercialized cannot  
be accepted. The demonstrations are intended to highlight scientific  
contributions, and consequently should not be sales pitches. For  
further clarification, please contact the Tool Demonstrations  
Organizers (wcre2009.demo at gmail.com).

We want to specially encourage tool demonstration proposals  
complementing full technical papers. Whereas a technical 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 running tool prototype.

# How to submit
Submissions of proposals for formal tool demonstrations must:
* adhere to the conference proceedings format (IEEE style, see IEEE CS  
Press ftp site);
* have a maximum of 2 pages that describe the technology or approach,  
how it relates to other industrial or research efforts, including  
references, and what the expected benefits are;
* have an appendix (not included in the 2 page count) that provides a  
detailed description of how the presentation will be conducted  
(possibly illustrated with a number of snapshots), information on tool  
availability and maturity, and the web-page for the tool (if one  
* be submitted before the Tool Demonstrations submission deadline;
* be sent via EasyChair (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wcre2009 

# Review process
The Research Tool Demonstrations Committee will review each submission  
using the standard WCRE criteria, which are originality and importance  
of contribution, soundness of rationale, quality of written and  
graphic presentation, and appropriate consideration of relevant  

# Presentation
Accepted demonstrations will be allocated 2 pages in the conference  
proceedings (the proposal appendix will not be included in the  
proceedings). In addition, 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. Demonstrators are expected to be available to  
give their demonstrations during those times.

Demonstrators are expected to provide their own equipment. The  
conference organization will provide an Internet connection. For  
supplemental wishes please contact the Tool Demonstrations Organizers (wcre2009.demo at gmail.com
