Call For Papers

=======ISEC 2025: Call for Papers========
The 18th Innovations in Software Engineering Conference
20-22 February 2025, NIT Kurukshetra Campus, India

==== Description ====
Innovations in Software Engineering Conference, ISEC under the umbrella of ACM India. The ISEC Conference on Software Innovation is a premier event dedicated to exploring the latest advancements, trends, and challenges in the field of software innovation. It serves as a platform for researchers, practitioners, industry experts, and enthusiasts to come together and exchange ideas, experiences, and insights on innovative software development practices, methodologies, tools, and technologies.
The 18th edition of the conference will be held at the National Institute of Technology, Kurukshetra, India, during February 20–22, 2025. ISEC 2025 will bring together researchers and practitioners from across the world to share the results of their work. The goal of the conference is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry to meet and share cutting-edge advancements in the field of software engineering.

NEW in ISEC 2025
* Dual submission cycles with firm deadlines.
* Double-blind peer review process.
* Generative AI Tools for writing the manuscript are prohibited.

==== Topics ====
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
AI and Software Engineering
Architecture and Design
Cloud Computing
Ethics in software engineering
Formal methods for software engineering
Human Computer Interface (HCI)
Industrial aspects of software engineering
Requirements engineering
Security and trustworthy computing
Social aspects, including diversity and inclusion of software engineering
Software development tools
Software engineering education
Software engineering processes including DevOps and DevSecOps
Testing, program analysis, program synthesis
The papers will be evaluated based on the relevance to software engineering, novelty of the contributions (how the paper advances the state of the art or what useful insights it provides), thoroughness of the evaluation (or soundness of a theoretical contribution), and clarity of writing.

==== Paper Categories ====
Submitted papers can be in one of the two categories: (1) Regular papers and (2) Short papers
Regular papers should not exceed 11 pages, 10 pages for the main text (including figures, appendix, etc.) and 1 page for references in the standard ACM format. LaTeX users should use the sigconf option, as well as the review (to produce line numbers for easy reference by the reviewers) and anonymous (omitting author names) options. Submissions that make a research contribution are expected to describe novel, high-quality research, with thorough evaluation (if applicable), in one or more aspects of software engineering. Experience papers must emphasize potential impact including how to overcome practical challenges, and lessons learned.
Short papers should not exceed 5 pages, including references in the standard ACM format. Submissions in this category may contain, for example, new interesting ideas that may not have been evaluated extensively. However, the ideas must be robust and of technical merit, with convincing evidence that they can be taken towards completion.
ISEC 2025 will use a double-blind peer review process. The authors must anonymise the submissions, i.e., (i) authors’ names must be omitted from the submission and (ii) authors' prior work should be referred to in the third person.

==== Paper Submission ====
Submission template:
Submission link:
ISEC 2025 will have two submission deadlines. Papers submitted to the first round will have three outcomes (i) Accept (ii) Reject (iii) Conditional Accept. The papers that are conditionally accepted will have a chance to get their paper accepted after a rigorous shepherding process. Papers submitted to the second round will not have the shepherding option, i.e., will be either Accepted or Rejected.
First Round Submission
Due date: 19th July 2024
Notification: 19th of September 2024
Camera Ready Version: 3rd October 2024.
Second Round Submission
Due date: 20th September 2024
Notification: 14th November 2024
Camera Ready Version: 2nd December 2024
Note: Submissions that are rejected in round 1 will not be eligible for round 2 submission. ISEC 2025 strongly prohibits the use of Generative AI Tools for writing any part of the submitted paper. The authors need to provide consent that they have not used any Generative AI tools for writing the submitted paper.
Submissions must also comply with the ACM plagiarism policy and procedures. Specifically, a submission must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review elsewhere while under review for ISEC.
If a submission is accepted, at least one author of the paper is required to register for the conference and present the paper in person. In exceptional circumstances (e.g., when none of the authors are based in India), provisions for remote presentation may be made.

==== Best Paper Award ====
One of the accepted papers in the regular papers category may be awarded as the best paper. The criteria for the best paper include significance, novelty, clarity, broad applicability, and clarity of in- person presentation. The award will be decided by the program committee and the steering committee and will be announced at the conference.
Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library, and indexed by DBLP. A special issue with the Journal of Systems and Software is being planned. If this goes ahead, all high quality submissions will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper.

==== Programme Committee Chair ====
Sridhar Chimalakonda, IIT Tirupati, India & Paddy Krishnan Oracle Labs, Australia
