The pre-conference that was conducted as part of the International Conference on Engineering Software (ICSE 2014) scheduled to be held in Hyderabad in June 2014, saw around 100 software engineering practitioners, technical leads, principal/solution architects, research scientists, doctoral and master's research scholars, and academicians participate.
Organised by ACM India and TiE, the pre-conference workshop held on Monday at CA Technologies, Gachibowli, was on "Software Engineering In Practice". The objective of the pre-conference workshop was to encourage participation and submission by professionals and researchers in Hyderabad/India in ICSE 2014.
This workshop was also an orientation session for the pre-conference workshop scheduled on June 7, 2013, where practitioners are expected to write up their research/technical work and submit it to various tracks and workshops in ICSE 2014.
The pre-conference workshop discussed ideas for possible papers. Actual papers will be presented at June 7 event to local audience and local mentoring will be provided for three weeks before June pre-conference event. All papers presented that day will be submitted for the international mentoring to be made available as part of the ICSE conference itself. The selected papers will receive mentoring from a highly accomplished international advisor from June to September this year. Final paper submissions are due in September.
In addition to the discussions around the ideas, two important presentations were made by Satish Chandra, IBM - on "How to write research papers" and by Prof. Vasudeva Varma, IIIT Hyderabad � on "ICSE 2014" � History and its Scope. Prof Varma stressed on the need for Industry to set standards rather than stick to already published material and felt this conference will not only help the industry's voice be heard but will also bring international recognition to the participants.
Satish Chandra from IBM, Bangalore, laid down the blue print of do's and don'ts for writing a research paper for ICSE.
