CONISOFT 2023 : IEEE 11th International Conference on Software Engineering Research and Innovation
Call For Papers
The 11th International Conference in Software Engineering Research and Innovation (CONISOFT 2023) will be held at Universidad de Guanajuato, November 6-10, 2023, León, Guanajuato, México. The purpose of the conference is to bring together practitioners and researchers from academy, industry, and government in order to advance the state of the art in Software Engineering, as well as generate synergy between academy and industry, defining a collaboration strategy to support and promote the development of the software industry in Mexico and worldwide. Papers that combine theory and practice are especially welcome.

Participation modalities (types of works):
•Track 1: Scientific papers (original research, basic and experimental).
•Track 2: Work in progress. Papers describing works that are at an early stage of the investigation.
Paper length: (a) Scientific papers (Track 1) will be submitted as full papers, from 8 pages and up to 10 pages; and (b) works in progress (Track 2) will be submitted as short papers, from 6 pages and up to 8.
Papers must be original works, not have been published before, nor subjected simultaneously to other events.
Submitted papers will be evaluated by an international reviewers committee composed of renowned researchers and professionals, which can be consulted on the Web site of the conference.
The CONISOFT will accept articles in English and Spanish.
(a) Accepted papers for CONISOFT in English (Track 1 and Track 2) will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore and the IEEE Computer Society (CSDL) digital libraries. The papers accepted for presentation and discussion at the CONISOFT conference are published in the proceedings by IEEE and will be submitted for indexing by IET INSPEC, EI (Compendex), Thomson ISI, Scopus, and other indexing services.
Based on the quality of the submissions, we are considering publishing extended versions of the best quality papers (in English) in a post-conference special issue in the Journal (with a second-round reviewing): Programming and Computer Software, © Springer. IF 0.936, Q4 (Scopus: Q3).
* The post-conference publication could require an additional payment to the editorial. Authors will be required to provide expanded versions of their submissions, which will undergo an additional review process for inclusion in the special issue.
(b) Accepted papers in Spanish will be published in a set of journals with Ibero-American indexes (some articles may be required to be translated into English as required by some journals). (to be defined).
The characteristics of the types of works and their structure can be consulted on the Web site of the conference. To prepare your paper, please use the template from:
Please submit a blinded version of your paper with no authors’ details.
Be aware that papers must be consistent and remain in the language originally submitted (English or Spanish).
