ISSTA 2015 Call for Demonstrations

The ISSTA Demo track provides an opportunity for researchers, educators, practitioners and software tool vendors to present their recent advances, experiences and challenges in the fields of software testing and analysis using live presentations of new tools and prototypes as well as benchmarks and data sets.

We invite new and innovative prototype demonstrations that show early implementations of research concepts as well as mature tools demonstrating advances in usability, scalability, and applicability to new problem domains. We also want to encourage researchers to submit demonstrations that show the use of shared benchmarks and data sets that would be relevant to the testing and analysis community.

The demonstrations are intended to highlight new research contributions to this field. They should provide a more hands-on experience of a research concept and help attendees obtain a better understanding of the problem being solved and its solution. Authors of regular research papers who have spent significant time and effort on implementing the research concept in software are encouraged to make an additional submission to the Demo track.

To promote replicability and quick dissemination of research results, we strongly encourage all authors to make the artifacts they demonstrate (tools, benchmarks or data sets) available to the community. Each submission should include information about the availability of the artifact presented, or if the artifact is not available, a clear explanation of how the community could still benefit from the proposed demonstration.

Each submission should be a four-page tool description plus a one-page appendix describing the demo steps (all in ACM conference format). The title of each submission should start with the prefix "Demo:". The accepted tool demonstrations will have their four-page paper descriptions included in the ISSTA proceedings.
