Call For Papers

APSEC 2016
23rd Asia-Pacific Software Engineering Conference
6th-9th December 2016, University of Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand

Software has been increasingly utilised to improve the quality of lives and, subsequently, to change the world in a myriad of unforeseeable ways. Software systems have evolved to meet the changing needs of society, while society has in turn evolved in response to the use of innovative and omnipresent software systems. The emergence of contemporary software for the evolving world has posed unprecedented challenges to software engineering professionals and their community. The 23rd Asia-Pacific Software Engineering Conference (APSEC 2016) provides an excellent opportunity for software engineering researchers and practitioners around the world to exchange ideas on how to address these challenges.

All paper submissions are rigorously reviewed by at least three reviewers and evaluated based on originality, technical quality, and relevance to software engineering concepts and technologies. All submissions must describe unpublished work that is not currently submitted for publication elsewhere - any violation of this rule discovered by the Chairs will result in the immediate withdrawal of the paper (without reviews). All submissions must be in English.

Submissions must use the IEEE dual column conference template with 10pt font and not exceed 8 pages (including figures, references and appendices) for research track papers, see:

The Chairs reserve the right to reject submissions (without reviews) that are not in compliance or out of scope for the conference. Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE Digital Library.

The Program Committee will select papers to be submitted for publication in a leading journal. Submissions must be submitted electronically in PDF before the due date via EasyChair at:
