Poster Track Call for Contributions

This year, the scope of the Poster Track has been broadened to include the New Ideas and Emerging Results (NIER) track. As a result, the best ICSE 2016 poster submissions will be invited to give a short presentation in a session during the main conference.


The ICSE 2016 Poster Track provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present, show-case, and discuss their most recent advances, ideas, experiences, and challenges in the field of software engineering.

As the top software engineering venue, ICSE is known to provide an excellent environment for discussions from which new ideas and solutions can emerge.


Poster submissions are intended to stimulate discussions of recent advances, experiences, and challenges, as well as cutting-edge or potentially disruptive ideas, in the field of software engineering. In particular, reflections on the past, descriptions of current initiatives, or visions of the future are welcome in addition to presentations of new results in software engineering research and practice.


Each submission will be reviewed by at least two members of the program committee. The main evaluation criteria include the relevance and quality of the proposed posters in terms of originality, relevance for the ICSE audience, technical soundness, and presentation quality. The best poster submissions will be invited to give short presentations in a session during the main conference.

How to submit

Submissions comprise (1) an extended abstract of no more than two pages, excluding references, but including all text, appendices, and figures (see the ICSE 2016 Formatting and Submission Guidelines) and (2) a 24 inch x 36 inch poster.

Submissions must be clearly indicated as posters by preceding the title of the extended abstract with "Poster", for example "Poster: New Advances in Software Engineering".

Posters must be submitted electronically to the Poster Track submission site.

Extended abstracts of accepted submissions will be published in the ICSE 2016 Companion Proceedings. The official publication date of the proceedings is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of the conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
