Call For Papers


SER&IP 2016 - Call for Papers and Talks
In conjunction with ICSE 2016, Austin, Texas
May 17, 2016

You are warmly invited to consider submitting to our workshop, and participating in this important area for the future of software engineering. The accepted workshop papers, both regular and short, will be published in the ICSE companion proceedings,

Workshop Aim

The SER&IP Workshop aims to advance collaboration between researchers and practitioners of Software Engineering (SE). Research and business are coupled for the software companies which are transforming intellectual property into products, services and business concepts. However, different perceptions and expectations create obstacles to collaboration. From sharing data, to theoretical challenges, to the value of quick fixes and case studies, and time to market, researchers and practitioners need to overlap research and practice to build trust in their partnership. This workshop is a platform to discuss and address such challenges. The open source movement is growing as a means of such collaboration, and this edition of the workshop will devote a track to examining the benefits and pitfalls of open source.


The workshop will have paper presentations, practitioners’ talks and round table discussions. Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit papers and talk proposals on topics related to the workshop. These topics include, but are not limited to:
· Business models and/or collaboration mechanisms between researchers and practitioners
· Challenges, issues, bottlenecks and gaps in adoption of research;
· Examples of what industry wants from research and what research wants from industry
· Existing research and systematic methods which are beneficial but ignored by the industry
· National and cultural differences in collaborations
· Practical challenges that have potential for research
· Success stories and best practices from SE research-practice partnerships
· The role and practice of open source in industry academia collaboration


SER&IP 2016 is soliciting regular and short papers as well as talk proposals. Regular papers should not exceed 7 pages, short papers should not exceed 4 pages, and 15 minutes talk proposals from practitioners should not exceed a 2 page extended abstract for a presentation or video. Full details regarding submission, publication and registration requirements are on the Workshop website.
