Call for Papers
We invite the submission of high quality papers describing novel and original work in all areas of Search Based Software Engineering including, but not limited to, applications of SBSE to novel problems, theoretical analyses of search algorithms for software engineering, rigorous empirical evaluations of SBSE techniques, and reports of industrial experiences. SSBSE welcomes not only applications from throughout the software engineering lifecycle but also a broad range of search methods ranging from exact Operational Research techniques to nature-inspired algorithms and simulated annealing. We particularly encourage papers that report on software engineering applications to which SBSE has not been applied before.

We also invite students to submit papers to a special Graduate Student track. This track gives students the opportunity to showcase their SBSE research and receive feedback from senior members of the SBSE community. Papers submitted to this track should not exceed 6 pages in length using the regular symposium format. To be eligible, papers should be primarily the work of students currently registered on a doctoral or masters programme that have not yet completed their studies. The paper may have co-authors who are not students but the student author is expected to present the paper at the symposium. The work presented in submitted papers does not have to be complete, although initial experimental results would be very welcome. This track would be an ideal venue for PhD and masters students to present and discuss their research agenda in the company of leading experts in the domain.

We challenge everyone interested in SBSE to apply their tools, techniques, and algorithms to our selected problems. We want you to apply your SBSE expertise to do interesting things to or with the software and uncover interesting things related to it. The best competition entries will be awarded special prizes. Further details will be announced soon.

Papers must not have been previously published, or be in consideration for, any journal, book, or other conference. Papers will be evaluated by members of the program committee based on their originality, technical soundness and presentation quality. We invite submission of technical papers of up to 15 pages in LNCS format, including all text, figures, references and appendices. If the paper is accepted, at least one author is expected to attend the symposium and to present the paper. We further invite short papers of up to 6 pages length presenting new ideas, tools, experience reports, or novel techniques and ideas, which will be included in the proceedings and presented at the symposium with a poster. Further information on paper formatting and submission will be soon available from the symposium website.

The authors of best selected symposium papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for a special issue in one of the leading software engineering journals. Details will be announced soon.
