ISSTA 2017 Demonstrations


Call for Papers

The ACM SIGSOFT International Symposium on Software Testing and
Analysis (ISSTA) 2017 Demonstrations Track serves as a venue for
publishing and presenting advances in software testing and analysis
tools that aid either practice, research, or both. Submissions may
describe early prototypes of tools, mature tools, and everything
inbetween. To help disseminate tools to the community, we encourage
submissions describing previously unpublished tools whose underlying
techniques may have already been published.

Highlighting scientific contributions through concrete artifacts is a
critical supplement to the traditional research papers published at
software engineering venues, including ISSTA. A demonstration provides
the opportunity to communicate how the scientific approach has been
implemented or how a specific hypothesis has been assessed, including
implementation and usage details, data models and representations, and
APIs for tool and data access. Authors of regular research papers at
ISSTA or other conferences are thus also encouraged to submit an
accompanying demonstration paper. However, the demonstration papers
must be original, and the tools must not have been previously
demonstrated or be concurrently under review at ISSTA or at another

The tool demonstrations must communicate clearly the following information:

    the toolís envisioned users,
    the software testing and analysis challenge(s) the tool addresses,
    how the tool is used,
    either results of conducted validation studies or the design of planned studies.


Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the demonstrations selection committee. The evaluation criteria include:

    the relevance of the proposed demonstration to the ISSTA audience,
    the technical soundness of the demonstrated tool,
    the originality of the underlying ideas,
    the quality of its presentation,
    the comparison to related work.

How to Submit

Submissions must conform to the ACM Conference Format. A demonstration
submission may not exceed four pages, including all text, figures, and
references. A submission may not have been previously published in a
demonstration form. The paper submission must be in PDF. The
Demonstrations track will be using the single-blind reviewing model,
so the submitted PDFs should identify the authors.
