> ERA Track
> ================================
> The goal of the Early Research Achievements (ERA) track is to provide
> researchers and practitioners with a forum for presenting great,
> promising ideas in early stages of research. These ideas do not
> require a strong empirical evaluation! The 2013 ERA track aims to
> provide constructive feedback to guide you from your initial idea and
> limited evaluation towards a solid ICSM 2014 paper with strong
> empirical underpinnings. The topics of interest for this track are the
> same as for the main research track, i.e., all the topics in the
> research and practice of software maintenance and evolution. Papers
> submitted to the ERA track must not have been accepted previously for
> publication or submitted for review to another conference, journal, or
> book.
> 
> Submissions must be in English and conform to the IEEE
> proceedings style. They must be four-page long, including all text,
> references, appendices, and figures. 
> Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of their originality,
> importance of contribution, soundness, evaluation (if available),
> quality and consistency of presentation, and appropriate comparison to
> related work. 
> 
> Further details are available at:
> http://icsm2013.tue.nl/CFP/index.html

> Doctoral Symposium Track
> ================================
> 
> As with previous editions, ICSM 2013 will feature a double doctoral symposium:
> 
> Pre-doctoral: The first part is dedicated to PhD students in the midst
> of their doctoral studies in the field of software maintenance, who
> intend to finish their PhD within the next two years (2014-2015). This
> symposium aims to provide PhD students with an opportunity to present
> their ongoing work, to interact with other researchers in the field,
> and to get constructive feedback from senior researchers. Participants
> will discuss their goals, methods, and results at an early stage in
> their research. 
> For the pre-doctoral symposium the submission should not exceed 4
> pages.
> Details on the required content are available at:
> http://icsm2013.tue.nl/CFP/index.html 
> 
> Post-doctoral: The second part is dedicated to researchers who have
> delivered their PhD dissertations in the area of software maintenance
> and evolution within the last 2 years (2011-2012). This symposium aims
> to provide a forum for post-docs to present the highlights of their
> work to the ICSM community. Moreover, participants will be asked to
> reflect on the PhD process itself, and share some lessons learned with
> PhD students as well as PhD advisors. 
> 
> For the post-doctoral symposium the submission should not exceed 6 pages.
> Details on the required content are available at:

> Industrial Track
> ================================
> 
> This track aims to foster mutually beneficial links between those
> engaged in scientific research and practitioners working to improve
> software maintenance practices. We are interested in results (both
> good and bad), obstacles, and lessons learned. Experiences from
> practitioners provide crucial input into future research directions
> and allow others to learn from successes and failures. 
> 
> For the industry track, we invite submissions of state-of-the-art
> practice and experience reports, survey reports from real-world
> projects and industrial experiences, and evidence-based
> identifications of unsolved research challenges associated to software
> maintenance. If you apply in an industrial context a method, model or
> tool, which you know was earlier presented at ICSM or other software
> engineering conference, we also warmly encourage you to submit to this
> track. 
> 
> Each submission should describe the problem addressed, the approach
> used, the current state of the project, an evaluation of the benefits
> or lessons learnt, and future developments. Submissions must be in
> English and conform to the IEEE proceedings style. They must be
> four-page long, including all text, references, appendices, and
> figures.

> ================================
> Tool Demo Track
> ================================
> This track provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners 
> to present and discuss the most recent advances, experiences, and 
> challenges in the field of software maintenance with the goal of allowing 
> live presentation of new research tools. Whether the tools are early 
> research prototypes or polished tools prepared for commercialization 
> (but not yet commercialized), the ICSM demo track provides the perfect 
> opportunity to reach an international audience of researchers and 
> practitioners, and solicit critical feedback.
> 
> This year's demo track consists of demonstrators who get about 15 minutes in  
> the conference program for presenting their tool. The presentation should focus  
> on the main use cases of and essential concepts behind the tool, and should 
> include an actual tool demo of at least 10 minutes. Accepted demos will be 
> included in the ICSM proceedings. Demos also require a website and a
> 4-page proposal.
> 
> Participation to the demos requires:
>    1) a 4-page proposal (format: IEEE format and template) describing 
>        the problem context, a typical usage scenario, existing tools and 
>        their shortcomings, the concepts behind the proposed tool, 
>        a graphical overview of the tool's architecture, a short discussion 
>        of the technologies used for implementation, a summary of experiments 
>        or other experiences with the tool, an outline of missing features and 
>        other future work, and the URL of the tool's website (see 2.);
>    2) a small website (referenced in the proposal) containing the URL 
>        of the screencast as well as the download link of the actual tool, together 
>        with clear installation instructions.
> 
> The proposal should be submitted via EasyChair at
> http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icsmtool2013
> The website do NOT need to be submitted via EasyChair, since their URL 
> can be found via the proposal. If the tool is not available for download, 
> the authors should clearly explain the rationale for this in the proposal.
> 
> Each submission will be reviewed by at least 3 members of the tool demo PC. 
> Major reviewing criteria are:
>    relevance to the ICSM audience
>    quality of the proposal
>    novelty of the tool
>    adherence to the tool demo guidelines
> 
> Accepted demos will be allocated 4 pages in the conference proceedings. 
> At least one author of each accepted demo must register and attend 
> ICSM 2013 for the demo to be published in the proceedings. In addition, 
> demonstrators will be expected to give a presentation that will be scheduled 
> in the conference program.
> 
> Demonstrators are expected to provide their own equipment. Please mention 
> supplemental wishes (e.g., Internet access) in a seperate appendix in proposal, 
> this appendix will NOT be included in proceedings.
