Demonstrations

The objective of the ESEC/FSE 2018 Demonstrations Track is to excite the software engineering community about new advances in our field through compelling demonstrations that help advance research and practice. The track is a highly interactive venue where researchers and practitioners can demonstrate their tools and discuss them with attendees. Tool-based demonstrations describe novel aspects of early prototypes or mature tools. The tool demonstrations must communicate clearly the following information to the audience:

  • the envisioned users;
  • the software engineering challenge it proposes to address;
  • the methodology it implies for its users; and
  • the results of validation studies already conducted for mature tools, or the design of planned studies for early prototypes.

Highlighting scientific contributions through concrete artifacts is a critical supplement to the traditional ESEC/FSE research papers. A demonstration provides the opportunity to communicate how the scientific approach has been implemented or how a specific hypothesis has been assessed, including details such as implementation and usage issues, data models and representations, APIs for tool and data access. Authors of regular research papers are thus also encouraged to submit an accompanying demonstration paper.

Call for Papers

Evaluation

Each submission will be reviewed by a demonstrations selection committee.

The evaluation criteria include:

  • the relevance of the proposed demonstration for the ESEC/FSE audience;
  • the technical soundness of the demonstrated tool (for a tool demo);
  • the originality of its underlying ideas;
  • the quality of its presentation in the associated video; and
  • the degree to which it considers the relevant literature.

How to Submit

Submissions must conform to the ESEC/FSE 2018 Format and Submission Guidelines. ESEC/FSE 2018 Demonstrations Track will employ a single-blind review process. Latex users should NOT use the “anonymous” option. In addition, demonstrations paper submissions must meet the following criteria.

A demonstration submission may not exceed four pages (including all text, references and figures). Each submission must be accompanied by a short video (between three and five minutes long) illustrating the demonstration. The video must be made available online at the time of submission. Videos should (i) provide an overview of the tool’s capabilities and/or dataset characteristics; (ii) walk through (some of) the tool capabilities and/or data analysis process; (iii) where appropriate, provide clarifying voice-over and/or annotation highlights; and (iv) be engaging and exciting for the watcher! A submission may not have been previously published in a demonstration form. The paper submission must be in PDF and the video made available on YouTube. Papers must be submitted electronically through EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esecfse2018formaldem. At the end of the abstract, append the URL at which your demo video can be found on YouTube. The video on YouTube must be publicly accessible at the time of reviewing. Authors of successful submissions will have the opportunity to revise both the paper and the video (and its hosting location) by the camera-ready deadline.
