ICSME 2016 technology briefings aim to bridge the gap between research and practice. Technology briefings showcase results and techniques that industry/academic practitioners can use "off the shelf." We invite proposals for short briefings (30 minutes, including Q&A) that may (but are not required to) include executable support tools, "paper-based" conceptual frameworks with proven value, or reviews that reflect on where we have been and where should we go in the future. Topics may include (but are not restricted to) the following:
Proposals must contain:
All submissions that meet the submission criteria (see below) and fit the scope of the conference will be reviewed by the technology briefings chairs. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of timeliness of and expected interest in the topic, the proposer's ability to present an interesting briefing, and the potential for attracting a sufficient number of participants. Submissions that are not in compliance with the required submission format or that are out of the scope of the conference will be rejected without being reviewed. Submitted proposals must comply with IEEE plagiarism policy and procedures.
Summaries of accepted technology briefings (including titles, names and affiliations of proposers/organizers, and abstracts) will be published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Presenters must be available on the dates reserved by ICSME 2016 for technology briefings. Presentation details will follow notifications of acceptance.
Submissions must be formatted according to the ICSME 2016 Formatting Instructions. Proposals must not exceed 3 pages (including all text, references, figures, and appendices). All submissions must be in PDF and must be submitted via email to the chairs (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) with the subject "ICSME 2016 Technology Briefings Proposal" (without the quotes).
