The Tool Demonstration track is a valuable venue of the 26th International Conference on Software Analysis, Evolution, and Reengineering (SANER'19). The goal of this track is to promote live presentations of tool prototypes. Software Tools are fundamental for the research in software maintenance, reverse engineering, and reengineering. These tool demonstrations have a prominent role in the SANER'19 conference, which substantially increases the visibility of the research associated to such tools.
The demonstrations are expected to showcase tools that implement research approaches. The tools may range from mature prototypes to fully developed products that have not been commercialized yet. We encourage demonstration proposals that complement full research papers. For example, while a research paper provides the background information and the scientific contribution of a novel approach, a tool demonstration shows how such an approach has been converted into a running prototype. Thus, the authors of potential research papers are encouraged to submit their respective tools to this track. Any of the topics covered by the SANER'19 conference are appropriate for this track.
Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the tool demonstration program committee. The committee will review each submission based on the innovation, effort, relevance, and quality of the submission.
Important note: SANER 2019 follows a full double-blind review process. For details see the Instructions for Authors. Submissions that do not adhere to these limits or that violate the formatting guidelines will be desk-rejected without review.
