Call for Tool Demonstrations

Tools are central to automated software engineering. Hence, tool demonstrations will have a prominent role in the conference. Demonstrators will be expected to present their tools during one or more sessions that will be scheduled into the conference program. In addition, a 2-page paper will be published in the conference proceedings for each accepted tool demonstration.

ASE 2007 solicits submissions for tool demonstrations related to automated software engineering. Tools can range from alpha-versions to fully developed products that are being prepared for commercialization. Products that are currently being commercialized will not be accepted as subjects of demonstrations. Tool demonstrations are not intended to be sales pitches, and should consequently highlight technical contributions.

Submission Information

Submissions of proposals for formal tool demonstrations must:

  • adhere to the conference proceedings format;
  • have a maximum of 2 pages that describe the technology or approach, how it relates to other industrial or research efforts, including references, and what the expected benefits are;
  • have an appendix (not included in the 2 page count) that provides a detailed description of how the presentation will be conducted (possibly illustrated with a number of snapshots or other types of multimedia content), information on tool availability and maturity in addition to a web-page for the tool (if one exists). The appendix should not exceed 4 pages.

Submit your tool demonstration as a single .pdf file by July 9, 2007 at:


Accepted demonstrations will be allocated 2 pages in the conference proceedings (the proposal appendix will not be included in the proceedings). In addition, demonstrators will be expected to give a presentation that will be scheduled into the conference program. There will also be a demonstration area open to attendees at scheduled times during the conference. Demonstrators are expected to be available to give their demonstrations during those times.
