In conjunction with The 38th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2016), Austin, Texas, USA

http://2016.icse-conferences.org/

Key Dates
Paper submission deadline: January 29, 2016
Paper acceptance notification: February 19, 2016
Camera-ready accepted paper deadline: February 26, 2016
Workshop: May 15, 2015

Submission site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=tose2016

Workshop Overview
Most academic disciplines are based on a set of central theories. Software engineering has meanwhile produced few widely-accepted and influential theories of its core phenomena. TOSE consequently supports attempts to propose, synthesize, clarify and test theories of software engineering phenomena. TOSE especially promotes attempts to answer fundamental questions, integrate ideas from diverse sources and propose revolutionary, contrarian or ambitious new theories. We therefore invite papers proposing, extending or evaluating any kind of theory (e.g. causal, process, explanatory, predictive, descriptive) concerning any aspect of software engineering.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
New theories
Groundbreaking extensions to existing theories
Groundbreaking synthesis of existing theories
Novel applications of theories from reference disciplines (e.g. sociology) to software engineering
Grounded theory, ethnography and qualitative theory building
Systematic literature review and thematic synthesis, leading to new theory
Empirical evaluation of new and existing theories
Software engineering process theories
Research methodologies for theory evaluation
Contrarian perspectives on software engineering theory

Possible Contributions include (but are not limited to):
Theory proposals with conceptual evaluations
Theory building empirical field studies including grounded theory, case studies and ethnography
Theory building, explorative lab studies, experiments and simulations
Empirical evaluations of theories (any research approach welcome)
Systematic literature reviews and thematic analyses
Conceptual contributions related to research methodology
Position papers related to theories in software engineering

Submissions
We welcome full papers (up to 7 pages) and short papers (up to 4 pages). Papers must follow ICSE technical papers formatting guidelines: http://2016.icse.cs.txstate.edu/formatInstr and they should be submitted to the workshop's EasyChair site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=tose2016. All papers will be published in the ACM and IEEE Digital Libraries. The official publication date of the workshop proceedings is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of ICSE 2016. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
