Tool Demonstration Track

This track is an important part of the conference with the goal of allowing live presentation of new research tool prototypes. Since tools are central to research in software maintenance and reengineering, tool demonstrations have a prominent role within the conference and add to the visibility of the associated research.

Whereas a scientific paper is intended to give the background information and point out the scientific contribution of a new software engineering approach, the tool demonstration provides a good opportunity to show how the scientific approach has been transferred into a running tool prototype.

Tool demonstrators will be expected to give a formal presentation and a live demonstration of their tool. There will also be a demonstration area open to attendees at Thursday in the afternoon. Demonstrators are expected to be available to give their demonstrations during this time. A table and a poster stand will be available. You can prepare and bring a poster to the conference highlighting your results. The size of poster stands is: height 105cm, width 134cm.


Demonstrators are expected to provide their own equipment. The conference organisation will provide an Internet connection. For supplemental wishes please contact the demo chairs.
