The Tools Session has been traditionally held as part of SBES and SBCARS. CBSoft 2010,
which integrated SBES, SBCARS, and SBLP, promoted the Tools Session to the context
of the main conference, aggregating contributions from researchers and professionals of
these three communities. After that, during CBSoft 2011, the Tools Session also included de
SBMF community.

The goal of the Tools Session is to create a productive environment for experiences
interchange, stimulating the discussion of automated solutions that support the software
development process regarding its different necessities and manifestations. The target
audience of the Tools Session includes members of the scientific community, showing their
research results in the fields of Software Engineering, Programming Languages, Formal
Methods, or Components, Architectures and Software Reuse. It also includes members from
industry, interested in showing commercial or proprietary tools that provide significant gains
in terms of productivity or quality for some software development activities.

Authors of papers submitted to the Tools Session will be able to present and advertise their
tools to the participants of SBES, SBLP, SBMF, and SBCARS. The Tools Sessions will
comprise both oral presentations and demo sessions of the selected tools.


Authors are invited to submit papers that describe automated solutions to the diverse aspects
and necessities discussed by any of the CBSoft events: SBES, SBLP, SBMF, SBCARS.

The Tools Session topics of interest include, among others:
- Aspect-oriented Software Development
- Configuration Management
- Distributed Software Development
- Experimental Software Engineering
- Metrics and Measurement in Software Engineering
- Model-driven Development

- Requirement Engineering
- Software Architecture
- Software Maintenance, Refactoring, and Reengineering
- Software Reuse
- Supporting Environment and Compilers
- Theoretical Foundation and Formal Methods
- Verification, Validation, and Test


Papers describing tools should be electronically submitted through the JEMS system at https:/

Authors are strongly advised to make the tool available for use or download over the Internet
during the review process. Papers submitted to the Tools Session should not be under review
or published in other forums. The acceptance of a tool implies the registration of at least one
of the authors in the CBSoft 2013 to present the tool.


The Tools Session usually takes place in two days during CBSoft. The first day holds the
oral presentation. The second day holds the demo session. Both the oral presentation and the
demo session are required for all accepted tools.


Papers should describe, at least and in a clear way, the following aspects:
a) Problem description
b) Tool architecture
c) Main features of the tool
d) Comparison against similar tools
e) Screenshots (if applicable)
f) Type of license
g) Tool URL for use or download

Papers should not exceed 6 (six) pages, one column, A4, including figures, references,
and appendixes. Papers should be written in English or Portuguese, and submitted in
PDF. Please, double check the quality and readability of figures. The submission format
should adhere to the SBC template, which is available at
