ICSE-WS@JCC 2015 : ICSE 2017 Warmup Symposium @ Jornadas Chilenas de Computación
Call For Papers
ICSE 2017 Ph.D. and Young Researchers Warm-up Symposium
Co-located with the Chilean Computing Days (JCC 2015)
Please forward to all interested students and young researchers!
Deadline for abstracts: September 15th, 2015
Notification: October 5th, 2015
Symposium: November 12th, 2015
Symposium and activities:
In 2017 the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE)
will be held in South America for the first time since it started in
Developing as a young scientist and achieving impact through
publications in top scientific venues such as ICSE is a challenge that
not only requires creativity, well articulated hypothesis and rigorous
validation but also communication skills, both for written and oral
presentations, understanding how communities work and how to get
results disseminated.The ICSE 2017 PhD and Young Researchers Warm Up
Symposium brings Master students, PhD students, and young PhD
researchers together to share their experience and to learn from
established academics and researchers from the ICSE community.
The symposium focuses on helping new software engineering researchers
feel more comfortable and confident in dealing with these many
challenges. The symposium will feature advice and guidance from
leading software engineering researchers based upon their personal
experiences and insights into the contemporary community. Ample time
for informal and small group interactions will allow the attendees to
dig deeper into pertinent questions and concerns.
A goal of this symposium will be to provide a supportive yet
questioning setting in which young researchers can present their work.
Participants will be able to discuss their goals, methods, and results
at an early stage in their research and receive useful guidance and
feedback on various aspects of their research. The symposium will also
help participants to establish a research and social network with
their local peers and also with prominent members of the ICSE
community. This year we are fortunate to have four previous ICSE
Program Committee chairs attending the symposium!
Finally, we believe that up to now South American presence at ICSE
does not reflect the quality and potential of software engineering
research that is ongoing in the region. We believe that ICSE 2017 in
South America is a unique opportunity for changing this, not only
bringing into the ICSE community South American researchers,
practitioners and educators but also inspiring and boosting the
potential of the budding South American software engineering
community. Furthermore, we believe that ICSE 2017 in South America can
also serve as a catalyser, fostering stronger integration between
software engineering research communities of South American countries.
Four distinguished speakers will participate to the symposium:
* Prof. Betty Cheng, Michigan State University, EE. UU. (PC Co-Chair, ICSE 2013)
* Prof. Premkumar Devanbu, University of California at Davis, EE. UU.
(PC Co-Chair, ICSE 2010)
* Prof. Paola Inverardi, University of L’Aquila, Italia (PC Co-Chair, ICSE 2009)
* Prof. Sebastián Uchitel, Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argentina (PC
Co-Chair, ICSE 2010; General Chair, ICSE 2017)
The symposium is open to post-graduate students (Ph.D. and MsC) and
young researchers. To participate, one must submit an abstract (max
1,800 characters) and a short bio on the symposium’s Easychair
* For students: include MsC/PhD start and (possibly tentative) end date.
* For young researchers: include year of PhD graduation and current
occupation (e.g. postdoc, junior faculty…)
