Call For Papers


EsPreSSE 2013 (Estimation and Prediction in Software & Systems Engineering) is organized as special session at the 39th Euromicro Conference on Software Engineering and Advanced Applications (SEAA 2013), Sept 4-6, 2013 in Santander, Spain.


Estimation and prediction approaches are a valuable foundation for planning activities and for making the right decisions at the right time in software and systems engineering. Over the last decade research and practice in software estimation and prediction have advanced the ability to infer likely future results and implications for project and product development based on the present development stage, experiences gained in previous project phases, and data from past projects.

The objective of this special session is to provide a forum where researchers and practitioners discuss applications and results of software estimation and prediction approaches. In particular, the session encourages the exchange of experiences from applications in commercial, industrial and open source projects that indicate strengths and limitations of these approaches in a real-world setting.


Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

* Estimation and prediction approaches used for guiding quality assurance and/or process improvement initiatives

* Estimation and prediction approaches for usage-, product- or process-related quality attributes

* Approaches for risk estimation or prediction in systems and software development projects

* Case studies on the application of estimation or prediction in software and systems engineering

* Experience reports about successful or unsuccessful estimation or prediction including a retrospective analysis and lessons learned

* Practical approaches for constructing effort and prediction models from fuzzy real-world data sets (e.g., incomplete, inconsistent, and/or erroneous)

* New ideas, methods and tools for estimation or prediction

To increase the visibility of published papers, EsPreSSE cooperates with the PROMISE repository of reproducible SE experiments ( Authors of accepted papers are invited to submit the associated data to the PROMISE repository. Contributions based on proprietary data from commercial and industrial projects are also welcome. These contributions should encompass a detailed description of the project and organizational context.


* Submission of papers: April 12, 2013 (EXTENDED)
* Acceptance notification: June 14, 2013

IEEE Computer Society Press will publish accepted papers in the conference proceedings and the IEEE Xplore Digital library. Extended versions of selected (best) papers will also be considered for publication in a special issue of a journal. Submission instructions are available at
