Call For Papers

The Brazilian Symposium on Software Engineering (SBES) 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 is 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 This call for papers (CFP) invites researchers and practitioners to submit original and unpublished papers for the event technical research track.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 submitted to the IEEE Digital Library. Moreover, only papers written in English will be eligible for the SBES best papers award. 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.

The review process includes a rebuttal period where authors will have access to reviews and may argue and answer questions from referees before the final acceptance/rejection decision. The rebuttal is limited to a plain text up to 3000 characters.

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 28th edition in 2014, SBES brings a novelty. Authors that never published in SBES or at other international prestigious conferences in the field (on the program committee coordinator's discretion) may request to participate in the Mentoring program. The program will assign a member of the program committee to make a preliminary assessment of the work and give feedback before the submission deadline, increasing the chances of less experienced and authors from other areas. Check the deadline to join the program in the Important Dates section, but we encourage the request to be made as soon as possible, since the number of papers in the program is limited and the assignment will be made in a first come first serve basis. ATTENTION, to join this program none of the authors may have previous publication in any SBES edition or any international prestigious conferences. The request must be made exclusively by the email with the subject "Participation in the SBES 2014 Mentoring". You should include in the email body the working title of the work, the full list of authors, and an abstract.

Every year the SBES Steering Committee appoints a committee to award the symposium’s best papers. Only papers written in English will be eligible for the SBES best papers award in this year’s issue. 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).

Last date to Mentoring request: March 01, 2014 (by email
Last date to Mentoring paper submission: March 16, 2014 (selected authors will be instructed)
Paper registration (Abstract submission): April 13, 2014
Paper upload: April 20, 2014 (firm deadline)
Rebuttal: June 02-03, 2014
Notification of acceptance: June 27, 2014
Camera-ready: July 06, 2014
