Call For Papers

XXVI Brazilian Symposium on Software Engineering (SBES)

Call for Papers

The Brazilian Symposium on Software Engineering is the premier software engineering event in Brazil. The event is annually promoted by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC) and it typically gathers nearly 500 people, including academics, practitioners, and students.

SBES will be held in conjunction with CBSoft – Brazilian Conference on Software: Theory and Practice. The symposium program includes technical research sessions, invited talks, courses, panels, demonstration of software tools, a PhD and MSc thesis workshop, and several other satellite events. This call for papers (CFP) invites researchers and practitioners to submit original and unpublished papers for the event technical research track.

This CFP welcomes technical papers related (but not limited) to:

• Industrial applications of software engineering
• Social aspects of software engineering
• Software dependability
• CSCW and software engineering
• Model-driven software development
• Requirements engineering
• Experimental software engineering
• Agent-oriented software engineering
• Aspect-oriented software engineering
• Component-based software engineering
• Software engineering for the World Wide Web
• Theoretical foundations of software engineering and formal methods
• Software product lines
• Software maintenance
• Methods, techniques, languages, and tools for software engineering
• Software metrics and measurements
• Software processes (including agile methods)
• Software quality and quality models
• Software reengineering
• Software reuse
• Software verification, validation, and testing


Submitted papers can be written in Portuguese or English. Submission in English is strongly encouraged since the symposium proceedings are made available at the IEEE Digital Library. Moreover, only papers written in English will be eligible for being evaluated by the Steering Committee which is going to appoint a committee to award the best papers of the symposium. It also bears mentioning that papers submitted to SBES must not have been simultaneously submitted to any other forum (conference or journal), nor should they have already been published elsewhere. The acceptance of a paper implies that at least one of its authors will register for the symposium to present it.

Each submitted paper will be reviewed by at least three referees, based on its originality, relevance, technical soundness and clarity of presentation. Papers must be no longer than 10 pages, including all figures and references. All submissions must be in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) and must comply with the IEEE 2-column conference format available at: Papers should be submitted electronically through JEMS system (

In this issue, the review process includes a rebuttal period where authors will have access to reviews and may argue and answer questions from referees.


Every year the SBES Steering Committee appoints a committee to award the best papers of the symposium. Awarded papers are announced during the event and invited to be submit as an extended version to a special issue of the Journal of Software Engineering Research and Development (JSERD).
