Call for Technical Briefings Proposals

* Goal *

The ICSE Technical Briefings program provides conference participants
with the opportunity to gain new insights, knowledge, and skills in a
broad range of areas of software engineering.

Technical Briefings offer a venue for communicating the current state
of a timely topic related to software engineering. As opposed to
in-depth tutorials in more mature fields, Technical Briefings should
provide a compact introduction to the state-of-the-art in an emerging

Technical Briefings will take place in 90-minute slots on the day
before the main ICSE conference (Tuesday May 19, 2015).

* Evaluation *

The Technical Briefings committee will review each proposal and will

importance, and audience appeal; suitability for presentation in a
90-minute format; effectiveness of teaching methods; and past
experience and qualifications of the presenters.

* How to submit *

Proposals should include a title, a description of the topic, a
paragraph explaining why the topic would be of interest to a broad
section of the software engineering community, and the names and short
biographies of the speakers. A proposal should be no longer than 2
