ISSTA 2014, Call for Tool Demonstrations

For 2014, ISSTA has created a new Tool Demonstrations Track that provides an opportunity for researchers, educators, practitioners, and software tool vendors to present their experiences, challenges, and solutions in the fields of software analysis and testing using live presentations of new tools and prototypes as well as interactive results and data sets. We invite new and innovative research tool demonstrations that show early implementations of research concepts as well as mature prototypes and tools demonstrating advances in usability, scalability, and applicability to new problem domains.

The tool demonstrations are intended to highlight new research contributions in this field. The demonstration 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 Tool Demonstrations track.

Each submission should be a 4-page tool description plus a 1-page appendix describing the demo steps (all in ACM conference format). The submission site is:

The accepted tool demonstrations will have their 4-page paper desciptions included in the ISSTA proceedings.

Important Dates:

Submission Deadline: April 13, 2014 (Sunday), extended from April 11

Notification: May 22, 2014 (Thursday)

Final Papers Due: June 6, 2014 (Friday)
