ICSE 2015


The 37th International Conference on Software Engineering

May 16-24, 2015 - Firenze, Italy

Call for Workshop Proposals 

* Scope and Goal *

The 2015 International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE)
Workshops provide a forum for a group of 20-50 participants to discuss
topics in software engineering research and practice. ICSE Workshops
will provide opportunities for researchers to exchange and discuss
scientific and engineering ideas at a stage before they have matured
to warrant conference or journal publication. ICSE Workshops also
serve as incubators for scientific communities that form and share a
particular research agenda.

ICSE 2015 Workshops may be either one or two days long and may be held
before or after the main conference. Participation in ICSE workshops
is typically open. ICSE workshops can produce workshop proceedings to
be published in the electronic ICSE proceedings.

* Proposal Submissions *

Proposals must not exceed five pages in length, must follow the ICSE
2015 formatting and submission instructions and must include the
following information, in the order specified:

4 pages

- full contact information for all organizers of the workshop and main
  contact person;
- desired length of the workshop (i.e., one or two days);

- outline of the themes and goals of the workshop, including a brief
  abstract (less than 200 words) intended for the ICSE 2015 web site;
- concise motivation of the workshop's relevance to the field of
  software engineering;
