Scope and Goals
The 2013 International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) Workshops provide a forum for a group of 20-50 participants to discuss current topics in software engineering research and practice. ICSE Workshops will provide opportunities for researchers to exchange and discuss innovative scientific and engineering ideas at a stage before they have matured to warrant conference or journal publication. ICSE Workshops also serve as incubators for scientific ideas or new scientific communities that form and share a particular research agenda.
ICSE 2013 Workshops may be either one or two days long and may be held before or after the main conference. Participation in ICSE workshops is usually open. ICSE workshops frequently publish a call for papers to produce workshop proceedings to be published in the electronic ICSE proceedings.
Here's a list of workshops from ICSE 2013.
Proposals must not exceed 5 pages in length, must follow the ICSE 2013 formatting and submission instructions and must include the following information in the order specified:
full contact information for all organizers of the workshop;
identify a main contact for the workshop;
the desired length of the workshop (i.e., one or two days);
desired workshop date(s) and scheduling constraints; as usual, workshops will be scheduled before and after the main ICSE 2013 conference;
a one-page outline of the theme and goals of the workshop including a brief abstract (less than 175 words) intended for the ICSE 2013 web site;
a statement discussing the relevance to the field of software engineering;
plans for generating and stimulating discussion at the workshop;
the desired minimum and maximum number of workshop participants;
link to a preliminary web site of the workshop;
a list of program committee members including proposed and committed members;
the participant solicitation and selection process including whether the workshop will be open or closed;
plans for workshop proceedings (if any) including an ideal number of papers and expected length of a participant paper (pages);
a statement and justification of the expected number of participants to help determine whether the workshop is financially feasible - in case of previously held workshops, the number of submissions and registered attendees as well as the web site must be included;
any equipment, room capacity, or other logistic constraints;
a brief description of each organizer's background, including relevant past experience in organizing conferences and workshops; and
your call for papers.
All proposals must conform at time of submission to the ICSE 2013 formatting and submission instructions, and must not exceed 4 pages, including all text, references, appendices and figures, plus 1 extra page for the call-for-papers.
Proposals must be submitted electronically by the deadline below.
Finally, in preparing their workshop proposals and organizing their event, workshop organizers should keep in mind the following constraints:
ICSE 2013 will not pay for registration, travel, or other arrangements for workshop organizers or any of their invited speakers or guests.
All participants, including workshop organizers, keynote speakers, and invited guests, must register for the workshop.
Workshop organizers cannot submit (refereed) papers to their own workshop.
For all workshops, ICSE 2013 will enforce uniform deadlines for workshop paper submission, notification of authors, and camera-ready copies (see mandatory deadlines in the section on formatting proposals above).
Review and Evaluation Criteria
Workshop proposals will be reviewed by the ICSE 2013 Workshop Committee and evaluated according to the following criteria:
The potential to advance the state of software engineering research and practice
The organizers' commitment to stimulate discussion at the workshop
The organizers' experience and ability to lead a successful workshop
Timeliness and expected interest in the workshop topics
The balance and synergy between all ICSE 2013 events
