Submissions should present the most recent and significant technical contributions to the field of Software and Systems Engineering. We invite high quality submissions to be evaluated against the following criteria:
Soundness: The extent to which contributions are supported by rigorous application of appropriate research methods.
Significance: Demonstrating that contributions are novel, original, and important, with respect to the existing body of knowledge.
Verifiability: The presentation of sufficient information to support independent verification or replication of the claimed contributions,
Presentation: Achieving clear descriptions and explanations, adequate use of the English language, absence of major ambiguity, clearly readable figures and tables, and adherence to the formatting instructions provided below.
This year, we invite submissions under three categories: Regular, Short, Poster:
Regular papers should not exceed 11 pages, 10 pages for the main text (including figures, appendix etc.) and 1 page for references in standard ACM format. Regular papers contain full descriptions that constitute contributions to knowledge and are evaluated against the criteria given above.
Short papers should not exceed 5 pages, including references in standard ACM format. Short papers should clearly demonstrate that the work is a contribution to knowledge, but may be incomplete in terms of being able to demonstrate one or more of soundness, significance, or verifiability.
Poster papers should not exceed 2 pages. A poster paper is intended to describe work that is at an early stage in development. Accepted poster papers will be provided with an opportunity to display a poster and to discuss the ideas with delegatesduring a dedicated session of the conference.
Regular paper submissions are expected to contain in-depth descriptions of the new ideas along with detailed evaluation, and when relevant rigorously consider reasonable broader impacts, both positive and negative, e.g. in a separate "Broader Impacts" section (refer to the blog post: https://acm-fca.org/2018/03/29/negativeimpacts/).
Submissions may take the form of experience reports or case studies. In particular we would welcome such submissions from Industry. Experience reports and case studies should address the application of software engineering practices (which may include work on principles, techniques, tools, methods, processes) to a specific business domain or to the development of a substantial software platform/system. Each paper should describe the context of a problem of practical importance and provide plausible solutions. Please take care to cover the following issues: innovation of the approach and the solution, the methodology, assessment of the benefits, risks and lessons learned.
Short papers may contain, for example, new interesting ideas which may not be evaluated extensively, tool descriptions or case studies.
Submissions must comply with the ACM plagiarism policy and procedures. In particular, it must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review elsewhere while under review for ISEC. The submission must also comply with the IEEE Policy on
Accepted papers in all categories will be published in the ACM Digital Library and indexed by DBLP.If a submission is accepted, at least one author of the paper is required to attend the conference and present the paper in person.
