Call for Tool Demonstrations
Software Engineering is concerned with the analysis, design,
implementation, testing and maintenance of large software
systems. Automated software engineering is concerned with how to apply
computation to automate or partially automate these tasks to achieve
significant improvements in quality and productivity. The IEEE/ACM
International Conference on Automated Software Engineering brings
together researchers and practitioners to share ideas on the
foundations, techniques, tools and applications of automated software
Tools are central to automated software engineering. Hence, tool
demonstrations will have a prominent role in the
conference. Demonstrators will be expected to present their tools
during one or more sessions that will be scheduled into the conference
program. In addition, a 2-page paper will be published in the
conference proceedings for each accepted tool demonstration.
We solicit proposals for tool demonstrations related to automated
software engineering. Tools can range from alpha-versions to fully
developed products that are being prepared for commercialization.
Products that are currently being commercialized will not be accepted
as subjects of demonstrations. Tool demonstrations are not intended to
be sales pitches, and should consequently highlight technical
contributions. For further clarification, please contact the tool
Priority will be given to tools based on sound, rigorous research
results to support the automation of key software development tasks
such as requirements eliciting, analysis and verification.
The Tool Demonstrations Committee will review each submission
using the standard ASE criteria: originality and importance of
contribution, soundness of rationale or demonstration, quality of
written and graphic presentation, and appropriate consideration of
Demonstrators are expected to provide their own equipment.
How to submit
Submissions of proposals for tool demonstrations must:
have a maximum of 2 pages that describe the technology or approach,
what is the research that has gone into the tool, how it relates to
other industrial or research efforts, including references, and what
are the expected benefits.
have an appendix (not included in the 2 page count) that provides a
detailed description of how the presentation would be conducted
(possibly illustrated with a number of snapshots), information on tool
availability and maturity, and the URL of a web-page for the tool (if
be sent to by email to Nicolas Kicillof (nicok(at)dc.uba.ar) and Katsuhiko Gondow (gondow(at)cs.titech.ac.jp) by the Demos submission deadline. Please begin the subject line with "ASE 2006 Demo".
- adhere to the conference proceedings format (see http://www.computer.org/portal/pages/ieeecs/publications/cps/cps_forms.html
for the guidelines and ftp://pubftp.computer.org/Press/Outgoing/proceedings/
for the formatting files).
Accepted demonstrations will be allocated 2 pages in the conference
proceedings (the proposal appendix will not be included in the
proceedings). In addition, demonstrators are expected to demonstrate
their tool at scheduled times during the conference.
