new ideas and emerging results track
Goal and Scope
The goal of the New Ideas and Emerging Results (NIER) track is to provide researchers with a forum for presenting and getting early feedback on novel research ideas and promising work that has not yet been fully evaluated. The topics of interest for this track are the same as the main research track.
How to submit
Submissions should conform to the ICSE 2010 Format and Submission Guidelines and should consist of a four-page paper that discusses:
• Overview/Motivation and state of the art
Papers must be submitted electronically through CyberChairPro.
Review and Evaluation Criteria
Each submission will be reviewed by at least two members of the New Ideas and Emerging Results committee. The committee will review submissions using the standard ICSE criteria: originality, importance of contribution, soundness of rationale, quality of presentation, and appropriate consideration of relevant literature. Special emphasis will be put on the originality of the work.
Accepted submissions will be allocated four pages in the proceedings companion. Authors will also present their work at the main conference, both as a five-minute talk during dedicated, highly interactive sessions and as a poster, demo, and/or video.
