Note: Submission deadline and the notification date have been updated.
In addition to the tool track papers, ICST 2018 will also be accepting submissions of demonstrations of testing-related tools and prototypes. The goal is to provide a highly interactive session where researchers and practitioners can experiment and discuss their tools.
Demonstrations provide an opportunity to communicate how a scientific approach has been implemented or how a hypothesis has been assessed, including details such as implementation and usage challenges, data models and representations, APIs for tool and data access.
A demonstration should focus on novel aspects of early prototypes or mature tools. It must clearly communicate the following information to the audience:
Each submission will be reviewed by at least two members of the organizing committee. The evaluation criteria include:
Submissions will be handled via EasyChair (Tools, Demos, Artefacts track of ICST 2018):
The Tools, Demos, Artefacts track of ICST 2018 uses single-blind reviewing, which means that demos need not be anonymized.
Each submission must include a one page summary (PDF) describing:
In addition to the one page summary, authors are expected to submit an overview (PDF of up to one page) of the planned demonstration. Alternatively, authors can submit a video (up to five minutes long). The demonstration plan and/or video must clearly convey:
If a link to a video is provided, the video must be available online at the time of submission.
Author(s) of an accepted demo will present their work at the ICST conference in a 3 minute lightning talk and a live demonstration.
There will be an award for the best demonstration.
