ASE 2014 : ACM/IEEE International Conference on Automated Software Engineering
Conference Series : Automated Software Engineering
Call For Papers
The ACM/IEEE Automated Software Engineering (ASE) Conference series is the premier research forum for automated software engineering. Each year, it brings together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss foundations, techniques and tools for automating the analysis, design, implementation, testing, and maintenance of large software systems.
ASE 2014 invites high quality contributions describing significant, original, and unpublished results.
Solicited topics include, but are not limited to:
Automated reasoning techniques
Computer-supported cooperative work
Data mining for software engineering
Domain modeling and meta-modeling
Empirical software engineering
Knowledge acquisition and management
Maintenance and evolution
Testing, verification, and validation
Open systems development
Product line methods
Software architecture and design
Model-based software development
Tutoring, help, and documentation
Modeling language semantics
Three categories of submissions are solicited:
Research Papers should describe innovative research in automating software development activities or automated support to users engaged in such activities. They should describe a novel contribution to the field and should carefully support claims of novelty with citations to the relevant literature. Where a submission builds upon previous work of the author(s), the novelty of the new contribution must be clearly described with respect to the previous work. Papers should also clearly discuss how the results were validated.
Experience Papers should describe a significant experience in applying automated software engineering technology and should carefully identify and discuss important lessons learned so that other researchers and/or practitioners can benefit from the experience. Of special interest are experience papers that report on industrial applications of automated software engineering.
New Ideas Papers should describe novel research directions in automating software development activities or automated support to users engaged in such activities. New ideas submissions are intended to describe well-defined research ideas that are at an early stage of investigation and may not be fully validated.
All submissions must come in PDF format and conform, at time of submission, to the ACM Formatting Guidelines (LaTex users, use the style Option 2).
Technical Research Papers and Experience Papers must not exceed 10 pages (including figures and appendices) plus up to 1 page that contains ONLY references. New Idea Papers must not exceed 6 pages (including figures, appendices AND references). Submissions that do not adhere to these limits or that violate the formatting guidelines will be desk-rejected without review. All submissions must be in English.
Papers submitted to ASE 2014 must not have been previously published and must not be under review for publication elsewhere. All papers that conform to submission guidelines will be peer-reviewed by members of the Program Committee and members of the Expert Review Panel. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of originality, soundness, relevance, importance of contribution, evaluation, quality of presentation and appropriate comparison to related work. Note that the Program Committee may re-assign a submission into a different category than the one it is submitted to if it decides that it is a better fit for that category.
All accepted papers will be published by ACM, provided that at least one author of each accepted paper registers for the conference and presents the paper. Failure to do so may result in the paper being pulled out of the ACM Digital Library.
