The Canadian Consortium for Software Engineering Research (CSER)

presents ...

The CSER 2013 Spring Meeting!

Where: Montréal, Canada
When: June 17 and 18, 2013

Deadline: May 27, 2013

Web: http://www.cser.ca/
Email: cser DOT montreal AT gmail DOT com

Dear colleagues,

The Consortium for Software Engineering Research (CSER) 2013
Spring meeting will take place on Monday, June 17, 2013, and 
Tuesday, June 18, 2013 in Montréal. Please save these dates!

CSER is an open meeting to present and discuss research results
in software engineering. It is "open" in the sense that every researcher, 
industry participant or grad student based in Canada or fascinated by 
software engineering research in Canada can participate. All that is 
needed is a 150 word abstract (details below), and you're good to go. 
There is no reviewing phase, nor proceedings. The main goal really is 
to gather and provide feedback on the recent research results of the 
participants (and, while you're at it, enjoy one of the most beautiful 
Canadian cities).

As such, CSER is an ideal software engineering venue both for 
experienced researchers to present upcoming conference papers, for
industry participants to present project deliverables, as for young and 
not-so-young students to present their first paper, tool or poster.

Please feel free to forward this email to other members of your
research team, your research partners, or colleagues at your
institution or company who may be able to participate!

Research Talks ...

We invite members of the CSER community to give brief research
presentations (10 to 15 minutes long) at the meeting. Such a presentation
could be by a faculty member, industry participant or a student. There
will be an award for the best presentation.

Your presentation proposal should include the following

- presentation title
- author name(s), affiliation(s) and email(s) (with the presenter(s) highlighted)
- presentation abstract (up to 150 words)
- type
  (e.g., research talk, experience report, event summary report,
  position statement, project introduction or research directions)


Young Faculty Keynotes ...

The CSER 2013 Spring meeting continues the highly successful series of
keynotes by new Canadian faculty. Every new Canadian faculty member 
("new" meaning having obtained a faculty position in 2011, 2012 or 2013)
who did not yet give a keynote at CSER before is eligible, provided there
is still space in the program. Typically, keynote speakers have around 30
minutes in total (talk + questions).

Your keynote proposal should include the following information:

- presentation title
- name and new affiliation (+ email)
- presentation abstract (up to 150 words)
- short bio


Workshops ...

We also invite members of the CSER community to organize a
mini-workshop session during one of the afternoons of the meeting.

Your workshop proposal should include the following information:

- workshop title
- organizer and presenter names (with affiliations and email)
- workshop abstract (up to 150 words)
- format
  (e.g., group exercise, moderated panel, fishbowl discussion,
  lightning talks)
- anticipated outcome
- preferred length of the workshop


Posters ...

Following tradition, we will have a poster session during the evening
reception, with an award for the best poster. This is an excellent
opportunity for students to present their work and gain feedback from 
the CSER community.

Your poster proposal should include the following

- poster title
- author name(s) (with the presenter(s) highlighted, plus affiliations and email)
- poster abstract (up to 150 words)


Announcements ...

Software engineering researchers in Canada continue to be
involved in a wide variety of conferences, publication
venues, projects and studies. There will be time during the
meeting to briefly publicize your event or call for participants.

Please prepare a one or two slide presentation, and indicate
who will give the announcement.


Submission Process ...

Please email your submissions to the official CSER 2013 email
address (cser DOT montreal AT gmail DOT com) by May 27, 2013.
We plan to release a preliminary program and registration instructions
at the end of May.


Registration Process & Venue ...

We will post the details about the registration process and
the specific venue in Montréal on our site (http://cser.ca), 
and will also send this information to people who submitted
a talk or poster.

In any case, registration for faculty members will be around 
$200, while for students it will be around $75. This includes 
food and a poster reception.
