Emerging Results


The session is an informal and highly interactive environment that gives ICSE participants the opportunity to engage one another in discussions about ongoing work and critical issues in key areas. Authors get early exposure of their work-in-progress, and ICSE attendees get rapid, low overhead introductions to emerging ideas and technologies in software engineering. Authors also receive critical feedback that they can use to shape future full ICSE papers.

Important Dates

  • SUBMISSION: 30 October 2005
  • CAMERA-READY COPY DUE: 24 February 2006



  • Betty Cheng, Michigan State University, chengb@cse.msu.edu
  • Beijun Shen, ECUST, bjshen@vip.sina.com


ICSE 2006 Emerging Results Session cover the same interest areas as the Technical Papers, Experience Reports, Workshops, Panels program. Submissions should cover work that has a solid technical basis, but perhaps has not been fully validated.

Review and Evaluation Criteria

Each submission will be reviewed by at least two members of the Emerging Results committee.

The Emerging Results committee will review each submission using the standard ICSE criteria: originality, importance and generality of contribution, soundness of rationale, quality of written and graphic presentation, and appropriate consideration of relevant literature.

Submission Structure

Emerging Results submissions should conform to the ICSE 2006 Format and Submission Guidelines.

Submissions should consist of a single four page document with the following three parts:

  • Overview of problem and motivation (include related work)
  • Brief description of preliminary results
  • Discussion of impact of results and tentative future investigations.


Accepted Emerging Results submissions will be allocated four pages in the proceedings and must conform to the ICSE 2006 Format and Submission Guidelines. In addition to publishing their short papers in the conference proceedings, authors will present their work in the form of a poster during dedicated time slots throughout the conference.


We will not provide any computing equipment such as computers, disk drives, or monitors. We will, however, provide poster board, easel, and a table for handouts and/or early drafts of technical reports.
