Second International Conference on
Generative Programming and Component Engineering (GPCE'03)

Demonstration Chair:
Markus Voelter, independent consultant, Germany

Important Dates


Demonstrations are a way for conference attendees to see how a specific technology is actually used. Also, demonstrations give attendees a chance to directly talk to the developers of the technology or tool. For the presenter(s) of a demonstration, there is the advantage that a demonstration can illustrate concepts, techniques or approaches that are hard to communicate using more static media such as papers or posters.

GPCE Demonstrations can cover novel tools, techniques or ideas; work in progress; or proven techniques used in real world scenarios. We invite proposals from the commercial and academic communities. Demonstrations will be selected based on technical content, practical or academinc relevance, and also the feasibility of the proposed demonstration. Please note that the presentation must focus on the technical content - product marketing is inappropriate in this forum.

Organizational Issues

A demonstration session will be one hour in length. Questions should either be taken at the end (which requires that some time be reserved for that) or during the session itself. We'll try to make the demonstration room available after the demonstration for additional informal discussions. Each demonstration will be scheduled twice during the course of the conference. A sign-up sheet will be available for scheduling informal demonstrations during the conference.

Please send demonstration proposals to the GPCE 2003 Demonstrations Chair Markus Voelter ( to arrive no later than May 18, 2003. For additional information, clarifications, questions, or special requirements, please also contact Markus.

Demonstrated tools will take part in the audience vote for the GPCE'03 Best Contribution Awards.
