Research demonstrations enable conference participants to view research systems in action,
and to discuss the systems with the people who created them. These demonstrations are
intended to show early implementations of novel software engineering concepts and are
suitable for mature presentations that can be communicated effectively to a large
audience using projection technology.

Research demonstrations are suitable for mature presentations. Each formal
demonstrator will be presented during a formal presentation session. Additionally,
informal demonstration to participants must be provided in further assigned
Commercial products will also be considered as research demonstrations.
The criteria used for evaluation of commercial products however will be
different from the academic research demonstrations criteria (see Evaluation
Review and Evaluation Criteria
submission will be reviewed by at least two members of
the research demonstrations committee.
The research demonstrations committee will review each submission
using the standard ICSE criteria: originality, importance and generality
of contribution, soundness of rationale or demonstration, quality
of written and graphic presentation, and appropriate consideration
of relevant literature.
In addition, for commercial proposals,
we will consider issues such as likelihood of being world-changing
and likelihood of being of interest to researchers (e.g., open
source, well documented, extensible, free for academic use).
The formal research demonstration proposals should conform to
the ICSE 2006 Format and Submission Guidelines.
Formal Demonstration submissions should consist of a single document with
the following two parts. The first part, at most four pages,
should describe the tool presented. The second part, as an ANNEX of at
most two pages,
should explain how the demonstration will be carried out and what it will
show. Besides these, up to four pages of screen dumps, well-captioned,
may also be attached, as needed, to illustrate the demo narrative.
There are two categories of acceptance for research demonstrations:
formal demonstrations and informal demonstrations.
Final camera ready papers will be four pages long for formal demonstrations,
and two pages long for informal demonstrations, following the ICSE
2006 Format and Submission Guidelines.
The authors of the accepted formal demonstrations will be expected to
deliver both presentations and demonstrations. The
authors of the accepted informal demonstrations will be
expected to deliver demonstrations only.
of the technical characteristics of the systems can be demonstrated during
a session of the conference. Two data projectors will be available, so
that a live demonstration and the slides can be projected at the same
Demonstrations: There will be a separate
time slot for demonstration of about 3 hours in
a venue equipped for small-group informal demonstrations. This will provide
ICSE attendees and demonstrators with more opportunities for stimulating
one-on-one interactions. Only desks will be provided during this time
We will not provide any computing equipment such as computers, disk drives,
or monitors. We will, however, provide basic electronic projection capabilities
during the formal demonstration and desks for the informal demonstrations.
