TOOL DEMOS AND MOBILE APPS

Important Dates (2019)
February 4, 24:00 AoE Paper Submission Deadline
March 4 Author Notification
March 15 Camera-Ready Submissions

Mobile devices and platforms dominate the modern computing landscape, creating immense demand for quality applications.  Because of this, the engineers, architects and designers that create these apps are able to reach unprecedented numbers of users. However, the mobile software development and design processes come with a unique set of challenges and constraints.  The goal of this track is to solicit demonstrations of tools and mobile apps, from both academic and industrial origins, designed to improve the lives of mobile developers across the world. Submissions should showcase novel, practical contributions that aid mobile software architects, designers, researchers, or engineers in their respective workflows.  Authors of each accepted submission will give a short presentation of their solution, followed by a detailed demo session. Both tool demos and mobile application submissions can fall into one of the following two categories:

  1. Tools and apps in practice, either from commercial vendors or open-source projects. These demonstrations should focus on practical applications within the different activities of software design and development and should particularly show how they advance the current state of the practice. New ideas are particularly welcome.
  2. Tools and apps in research from academic or industrial research environments. These demonstrations are intended to highlight underlying scientific contributions and show how scientific approaches have been transferred into a working tool.

Both categories may range from early prototypes to in-house or pre-commercialized products. Authors of regular MOBILESoft papers are also welcome to submit an accompanying MOBILESoft Tool Demos and Mobile Apps paper by adding information regarding the actual demo. Each contribution must be submitted in the form of up to a four (4)-page short paper.

Formatting and Submission Instructions

All submissions must conform, at time of submission, to the IEEE Conference Proceedings Formatting Guidelines (title in 24pt font and full text in 10pt type, LaTEX users must use \documentclass[10pt,conference]{IEEEtran} without including the compsoc or compsocconf option). All submissions must be in PDF. The page limit is strict, and it will not be possible to purchase additional pages at any point in the process (including after the paper is accepted). Papers that do not conform to these guidelines will be desk rejected before the review process.

MOBILESoft 2019 will follow a double-blind review process. Thus, no submission may reveal its authors’ identities. The authors must make every effort to honour the double-blind review process. In particular: (i) the authors’ names must be omitted from the submission, (ii) references to their prior work should be in the third person, and (iii) supplementary material (e.g., experiment replication package, YouTube video, source code of the proposed approach) should be provided anonymously. Any submission that does not comply with the double-blind review process will be rejected by the Tool Demos & Mobile Apps PC Co-Chairs without further review.

Proceedings

At least one author of an accepted contribution is required to register, present the work, and participate during the discussions at the forum. Accepted papers will be published in the conference electronic proceedings and in both the ACM Digital Library and IEEE Digital Library. The official publication date of the conference proceedings is the date that the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library and IEEE Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of ICSE 2019. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
