Tutorials/Tech Briefings

The tutorials track at ISEC 2018 is aimed to provide an opportunity for conference participants to learn, explore and gain knowledge on timely research topics ranging from theoretical foundations to practical techniques in the broad area of software engineering. Specifically, this year we plan to introduce the idea of short and crisp sessions on the state-of-the-art in emerging research areas in addition to half day and full day tutorials. The tutorial track serves as an opportunity for researchers and industry experts to present advances in the field of software engineering providing insights for young students and researchers to get an overview of the research area and to further pursue research.

The tutorial instructors are invited to submit proposals for:

  • (i) technical briefings, 90-minute compact sessions on a specific topic focusing on current state-of-the-art
  • (ii) half-day
  • (iii) full-day tutorials

Proposals should indicate the type of tutorial, a justification and should include title, objective, timeliness, a motivation for the topic, target audience, an outline, the names and short biographies of the speakers and any other information that helps in assessing the proposed tutorial. A proposal should be no longer than 3 pages and should include a few sample slides from the intended tutorial presentation. The proposal should be submitted as a pdf over mail to the track chairs before October 15th 2017.

The tutorials committee will review each proposal based on its ability to garner interest from the audience, the relevance and importance of the topic in the context of the current lines of research in software engineering, the experience of instructors and a fit with the entire program of ISEC 2018.

For any further queries, please contact the track chairs Sridhar Chimalakonda or Mei Nagappan.
