Call For Papers


The Joint Conference of the 32nd International Workshop on Software Measurement (IWSM) and
the 17th International Conference on Software Process and Product Measurement (MENSURA)

September 14-15, 2023, Rome, Italy


IWSM-MENSURA is the premier international conference on software measurement. Over the past three decades, the
conference has built its reputation by attracting leading-edge researchers, leaders, and innovators with talks,
tutorials, and discussions. The main goal is to share experiences, challenges, and solution approaches to
facilitate technology transfers from best measurement and estimation-related practices developed by researchers
and world industry experts. IWSM-MENSURA is one of the pioneer conferences in attracting industry participation,
with each year 50-60% of its participants from the industry, either as speakers or as attendees. Therefore,
IWSM-MENSURA is quite unique in its rich discussions on the applicability of theoretical measurement research
in the field.


## Submission Guidelines

### Important Dates

Submission due: June 11, 2023
Notification of acceptance/rejection: July 15, 2023
Final version: August 1, 2023

### Submission Guidelines

All submissions must be done electronically in PDF format via the IWSM 2023 Easy Chair submission site: All submissions must adopt the new CEUR-ART style for
writing papers to be published with CEUR-WS.
An Overleaf page for LaTeX users is available at:

You can also download an offline version with the style files from It also
contains DOCX template files. Please use 1-column style. Submissions can be full papers, short papers, and industry
presentations. All papers must be in English, and must be at least 10 pages for full papers and 5-9 pages for short
papers and industry presentations. The title page must contain a short abstract clarifying the relation of the
paper with the topics above.

Paper submissions must be original contributions that have neither been published previously nor submitted to other
conferences or journals while being submitted to IWSM-MENSURA 2023.

Authors are encouraged to adhere to the best practices of reproducible research, by making available data and related
tools for reproducing the results reported in their papers.

For each accepted paper, at least one author must register to the conference and present the paper. Final paper
presentations must be submitted one week before the conference to allow posting them on the conference website on
time for the conference itself.


IWSM-MENSURA 2023 is inviting proposals for high-quality workshops to complement its scientific program. Workshop
proposals must fall within the broad area of Software Measurement and Estimation and we welcome workshops tackling
the development of consensual approaches to measurement in domains which would benefit from standardization to ensure
comparability and trustiness in measurement results. Workshop organizers are highly encouraged to include interactive
and hands-on working sessions.

The organizers of approved workshops are responsible for the planning of their workshops, identifying contributing
experts, soliciting ‘position papers’, proposing discussion topics supported by documented inputs when available,
setting discussions objectives, documenting participants suggestions and contributions and suggesting post-workshop
activities and goals.

- Organizers are expected to be present to attend, run, and manage their workshops.
- Conference facilities such as meeting rooms, wireless Internet and meals will be provided by the IWSM-MENSURA
conference organization.

# Submission Instructions:
Workshop proposals should include the following information:

1. General Information

- Title of the workshop
- Organizers and primary contact (name/affiliation/email)

- Expected length of the workshop (full day, half day)

2. Objectives and Scope

- Goals of the workshop including a list of possible workshop sub-topics;
- References when available.
- Call for Position papers (typically 1-page expressing an opinion-vision-suggestion of sub-topics to be discussed within
the main workshop topic.

3. Workshop Format

- Format of the workshop (paper-based, discussion-based, invitation-based, work sessions, or similar); at least 1 hands-on
session is highly recommended.
- Format of hands-on session(s) (demos, brainstorming, discussions, case elaboration, etc.)

Any questions about submissions can be emailed to:
