Posters, Tools, Demos


The 13th European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA 2019) Posters, Tools & and Demos Track provides an opportunity for both practitioners and researchers to present and discuss the most recent advances, ideas, experiences, and challenges in the field of Software Architecture by means of posters and live tool/demo presentations.

  • Posters are intended to stimulate discussions among conference participants: reflections on the past, descriptions of current initiatives, visions of the future, and new results in Software Architecture research and practice are welcome. During the conference, posters will be presented in the poster session (in A1 poster format, 594mm x 841mm).
  • Tools & demos are intended to address or demonstrate any aspect of tool support for Software Architecture and can belong to two distinct categories:
    • Tools and demos in practice from vendors, industry or open source projects. These tools and demonstrations should focus on practical applications within the different activities of software architecting and should particularly show how they advance the current state of the practice.
    • Research tools and demos from academic or industrial research environments. These tools and demonstrations should underly scientific contributions and show how scientific approaches have been (or are being) transferred into a working tool.

The tools and demos should not be used as a means for commercial advertisement.

Participants of the conference will support the task to select the best poster, tool & demo papers, which will be awarded during the main conference.


Submissions of poster, tool & demo papers must have up to four pages in ACM style, describing the work, how it relates to other industrial or research efforts, including references, what the expected benefits are, and the web-page for the tool/demo (if one exists).

Tool/demo submissions should provide a link to a video (with audio commentary) of maximum five minutes length, with high resolution (details of the tool’s functionality should be clearly visible). The video must be uploaded on a server (e.g., YouTube, drive, dropbox) and the link should be included in the submission for its evaluation.

Contributions should be submitted using the online submission system: EasyChair ECSA 2019 Main Conference.

Selection criteria

The selection criteria of the posters, tools & demos papers will consider their originality, relevance for the ECSA audience, technical soundness, and presentation quality. Each submission will be evaluated by at least two members of the PC.
