CIbSE is the leading research forum on Software Engineering (SE) in Ibero-America. The primary objective of this conference is to promote high-quality scientific research in Ibero-American countries and, thus, support the researchers in this community in publishing and discussing their work. Also, the conference fosters collaboration and cross-fertilization among academics, students, and practitioners from industry.
CIbSE 2022 will be held in Cordoba, Argentina. In this edition of the conference, the three traditional tracks (Software Engineering, Requirements Engineering, and Empirical Software Engineering) are going to be merged into a single main track. CIbSE 2022 will include keynotes from influential researchers of the Software Engineering community and will be held in conjunction with three satellite events: a Doctoral Symposium, the 5th edition of the Advanced Ibero-American School on Software Engineering (EIbAIS), and Industry Talks. The Doctoral Symposium is organized to discuss work in progress of PhD theses related to the general area of Software Engineering. EIbAIS combines lectures and tutorials on the current trends in Software Engineering by renowned speakers. The Industry Talks aim at approximating academics and practitioners from the local community to discuss state-of-the-practice Software Engineering topics.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Application of artificial intelligence to software engineering
- Continuous software engineering practices (e.g., agile development and DevOps)
- Empirical software engineering
- Formal methods applied to software engineering
- Human and social aspects of software engineering
- Mining software repositories and software analytics
- Model-driven software engineering
- Requirements engineering
- Search-based software engineering
- Software architecture
- Software dependability
- Software economics
- Software ecosystems and systems-of-systems
- Software engineering education and training
- Software engineering for emerging application domains (e.g., artificial intelligence, big data, blockchain, cloud computing, cyber-physical systems, IoT, and quantum computing)
- Software engineering in industry
- Software maintenance and evolution
- Software metrics and measurement
- Software process
- Software product lines
- Software quality and quality models
- Software reuse
- Software testing
-Technical debt management
We invite authors to submit high-quality research papers describing significant, original, and not previously published results on Software Engineering, in any of the official CIbSE languages: English, Spanish, and Portuguese. The following paper categories are welcome.
** Technical papers ** (not exceeding 15 pages): papers describing innovative research in the topics of the conference. Papers in this submission category should describe a novel contribution to the topics and should carefully support claims of novelty with citations to the relevant literature.
Technical papers will be evaluated by originality, soundness, relevance, importance of contribution, strength of validation, quality of presentation, and appropriate comparison to related work. In case a submission builds upon the previous work of the author(s), the novelty of the new contribution must be described clearly concerning the previous work. Technical papers need to discuss openly how the results were validated.
** Emerging Ideas papers ** (not exceeding 8 pages): papers describing new, non-conventional approaches that depart from standard practice, on the topics of the conference. They are intended to describe clear research ideas that are at an early stage of the investigation.
Emerging ideas papers will be assessed primarily on their level of originality and potential for impact on the field regarding promoting innovative thinking. Hence, inadequacies in the state-of-the-art and the pertinence, correctness, and impact of the idea must be described precisely. While the idea that is described does not need to be fully validated, a presentation of preliminary results that provide initial insights into the feasibility and the impact of the idea is expected.
Any paper that is not in the scope of the conference, does not follow the formatting guidelines, or was submitted or published in any other forum (conference or journal) will be desk-rejected without review. All other submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee. The best paper will receive an award certificate.
All papers must be submitted through EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cibse2022), using PDF format only. Submissions must be formatted according to the style of the Brazilian Computing Society for conference papers (https://www.sbc.org.br/documentos-da-sbc/summary/169-templates-para-artigos-e-capitulos-de-livros/878-modelosparapublicaodeartigos).
The accepted papers will be included in the proceedings made available online by the Digital Open Library of the Brazilian Computing Society - SOL (https://sol.sbc.org.br/index.php/anais) and Curran Associates (http://www.proceedings.com/), and later indexed by DBLP and Scopus.
At least one author of each accepted paper must register by the camera-ready deadline. One registration corresponds to only one paper. Some author of each accepted paper must present it in person or the paper will be excluded from the proceedings. If an author has more than one accepted paper, it is possible to pay the 50% of the registration in the second and following co-authored papers.
Authors of papers on the topics of interest of the conference and accepted in Q1 or Q2 JCR journals are invited to present their research work at CIbSE. This offers an opportunity for the authors to discuss their work with the community as well as to enrich the technical program of CIbSE. Presentations of journal-first papers will be included into CIbSE 2022 main track.
The main evaluation criterion to select journal-first papers is the description of original results that are not extensions of previous conference papers. In addition, the paper must have been accepted for publication in the journal no earlier than January 1st, 2021 and must have not been presented at any other conference as a journal-first contribution.
At least one author per selected journal first paper must register and attend the conference to present it.
Authors interested in presenting journal first papers at CIbSE 2022 must submit their proposals in PDF format through EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cibse2022). The following information must be provided: (i) paper title; (ii) list of authors; (iii) keywords; (iv) journal and information about its impact factor and its rank; (v) DOI; (vi) abstract, and; (vi) a short statement on how the work satisfies the criteria above.
The Doctoral Symposium aims at disseminating research-in-progress conducted by novice researchers. A board of experts will discuss with the researchers to suggest new perspectives and improvements to the PhD theses.
The submitted research can address any of CIbSE 2022 research topics. We recommend, although it is not compulsory, that the research is at an intermediate stage (~ 2nd year) so that experts’ suggestions could be included in the PhD work.
The suggested paper structure is as follows:
- Introduction to the field of research and identification of the main challenges therein
- Explicit formulation of the research questions and objectives justifying why they were chosen
- Outline of the current knowledge of the problem domain as well as the state of existing solutions
- Sketch of the research methodology that is being applied
- Introduction of the proposed solution and the results achieved so far
- The statement in what aspects the suggested solution is different or better as compared to existing approaches
- An indication of the outstanding issues and description of the next steps that are planned
- Provision of a list of references
Doctoral Symposium papers shall be authored by the doctoral candidate exclusively (thus, the name of the supervisor should not be included). All papers must be submitted in PDF format through EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cibse2022). Submissions must be written in English, Portuguese, or Spanish. Moreover, the papers must not exceed eight pages and must be formatted according to the style of the Brazilian Computing Society for conference papers (https://www.sbc.org.br/documentos-da-sbc/summary/169-templates-para-artigos-e-capitulos-de-livros/878-modelosparapublicaodeartigos). Accepted papers will be included in the proceedings of the conference. The authors of accepted papers must register by the camera-ready deadline.
