Call For Papers

Software engineering is becoming more and more mature as an academic discipline. Its fundamental concepts are better identified and defined and its underlying methods are better understood. Despite this, few software engineering theories have been proposed, and none of them have achieved significant recognition so far.

GTSE 2013 aims at providing a forum for discussing the concept of a general theory in software engineering. The goal is to launch a scientific process of proposing, generating, criticizing and testing general theories of software engineering, and thereby, lead the software engineering discipline towards a more mature theoretical state. The workshop solicits submissions in the following non-exclusive topics (for brief introduction see here):

How can a general theory of software engineering be of practical use?
What are the objectives of such a theory?
What questions should it address?
What is a useful definition of theory?
How foundational/universal should a general theory of software engineering be?
What should its main concepts be? Should it be expressed formally? If formalized, what is a suitable language?

To allow submissions of both developed research and of early ideas, GTSE 2013 solicits two categories of papers: (1) 10-page research papers and (2) 4-page position papers. All accepted papers will be published in the ACM / IEEE CS Digital Library . They must follow ICSE formatting guidelines:, and they should be submitted to the workshop’s EasyChair site: . When submitting the paper, please indicate in the subtitle to which of the categories you are submitting (short position paper versus long research papers).
