Present CFP : 2018

Call for Research Papers
The IEEE International Conference on Program Comprehension (ICPC) is the principal venue for works in the area of program comprehension, which encompasses both the human activity of comprehending software, as well as the processes and technologies for supporting it. ICPC 2018 promises to provide a quality forum for researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, and government to present and to discuss state-of-the-art results and best practices in the field of program comprehension.

ICPC 2018 solicits full papers, ERA papers, tool-demonstration papers and industrial-experience papers. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Cognitive theories for program comprehension, including experiments and case studies
Individual, team, collaborative, distributed, and adversarial program comprehension
Comprehension of specific types of software systems, such as web-based systems, open source, mash-ups, legacy systems, product lines, and systems of systems
Comprehension in the context of diverse software process models and specific lifecycle activities, such as: maintenance, reengineering, migration, security, auditing, and testing
Novel interfaces to support program comprehension, including searching, browsing and visualization
Empirical evaluations of program comprehension tools, techniques, and approaches
Comprehension and legal issues, such as due diligence, intellectual property, reverse engineering, and litigation
Issues and case studies in the transfer of program comprehension technology to industry
Tool support for program comprehension

A special issue based on a selection of best papers from ICPC 2018 will be published in Wiley's Journal of Software: Evolution and Process (JSEP). In addition, we are negotiating a special section to highlight current program comprehension results in a practitioner oriented publication.

Submissions must not have been previously published or be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. Papers can be either full papers or short papers. Full research papers are limited to maximum 10 pages for the main text, inclusive of figures, tables and appendices plus 2 additional pages for references (for a total of maximum 12 pages). Short papers are limited to four pages for ERA, and five pages for Tool demonstrations including a one page appendix, eight pages for full industry paper, and two pages for an industry talk including the main text, figures, tables, and references. All accepted papers will be published both in the ACM and IEEE Digital Libraries and get a presentation slot.

Paper Preparation and Formatting
For the formatting and style guideline more information is available here. Papers must be submitted through the EasyChair Conference System. Full papers are limited to 10 proceedings pages for the main text, inclusive of figures, tables and appendices. Up to two more additional pages could be included for the references. Authors are encouraged to utilize these **two extra pages** for positioning their work to the literature. However, as of the previous years 10 page papers will also be considered as full papers.
