Call for Workshop and Tutorial Proposals
Along with presentations, we encourage discussion sessions to promote interaction. We invite proposals that are aligned with the conference topics. The workshops and tutorials can be half-day or full-day and will take place on June 13, 2022.
The workshop organizers should: compose a program committee with members from different institutions and regions; provide a website; have a CFP and publicize it on appropriate lists and within social networks; collect papers through EasyChair; assign them to the reviewers, and proceed to author’s notifications. The organizers should also contact the Workshop Chairs to pose any questions and answer their requests.
Tutorial organizers should plan their tutorial, including timing, intended audience, and interactive elements.
-Workshop proposal submission: December 1st, 2021
-Workshop proposal notification: December 8th, 2021
-Workshop website published: December 15th, 2021
-Workshop paper submission: Jan 10th, 2022
-Workshop paper notification: Feb 7th, 2022
-Workshop paper camera-ready copy: Feb 21st, 2022
- Tutorial proposal submission: March 28th, 2022
- Tutorial proposal notification: April 10th, 2022
Workshop and tutorial proposals must be submitted via EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ease2022) in PDF format following the paper format of the main conference and no longer than the maximum page number of the main conference papers.
The workshop and tutorial proposals must include: title; short bios of the organizers; contact information of the organizers; motivation and objectives; list of topics; the format of the workshop/tutorial; equipment and services needed; and the target audience.
For workshops, also provide information of a previous edition of the workshop; type (e.g., short or full) and size of the papers; the evaluation process that will be applied; a preliminary list of PC members with names and affiliation.
For tutorials, describe the agenda of the tutorial and the format (e.g., lecture, interactive elements).
The workshop and tutorial proposals will be evaluated by the Workshop Chairs considering the relevance to the conference, the importance of the workshop topics, and the experience of the organizers.
Workshop/tutorial participants and organizers must register for the workshop/tutorial. The organization may cancel or suggest merges for workshops or tutorials without sufficient submissions or registrations.
For workshops, accepted papers will be published in the ACM proceedings. Accepted tutorials have the option of submitting a two-page tutorial summary for the proceedings.
Call for Doctoral Symposium Papers
The goal of the symposium is to provide a helpful and stimulating forum for Ph.D. students to present and discuss their research proposals and the early results of their research.
Experienced members of the empirical software engineering community will serve as symposium advisers to provide constructive and detailed feedback on the submitted papers. Depending on the number (and the topics) of submissions, we would like to involve the student participants in the peer-review process of the submissions in their areas of interest to foster their reviewing skills and expand their peer networks.
Participants must be current doctoral students, preferably at a mid-point in their dissertation work (though other doctoral students are also welcome).
The submitted research proposal should be single-authored, limited to 6 pages, include the advisor’s name, student’s email address, and address the below headings:
- Title and abstract (up to 250 words)
- Motivation, rationale, and contributions of the dissertation research
- Key Research Questions/Challenges questions to be addressed
- Work Plan explaining how the challenges would be addressed:
- Research approach, empirical study design and arrangements
- Definition of most important metrics (e.g. following the GQM approach)
- Data analysis methods and techniques
- Validity threats and their control
- Summary of the current status of the research (including a very brief outline of the early results) and planned next steps
- Relevant prior work
Important dates for doctoral symposium:
- Doctoral symposium papers submission: April 4th, 2022
- Notification: May 2nd, 2022
- Camera-ready: May 9th, 2022
Depending on the reviews, the submissions will be accepted either as short papers published in the conference proceedings or as posters to be presented during the conference.
Please submit your papers using: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ease2022 (the same formatting rules apply as for the main conference proceedings).
