Call For Papers

24th ACM SIGSOFT International Symposium on the Foundations of
Software Engineering


November 13 - 19,2016 Seattle, WA, USA.


What's new with FSE 2016:

* The Research track will include Author rebuttal.

* The conference will include a strong focus on practice: The Showcase
Track and the Industry Track will highlight and solicit
state-of-the-practice, best practices, as well as exemplary applied
research in software engineering

* The Demo track is now accepting data sets in addition to tool demos.

* The new Visions and Reflections track for radical new directions
that represent disruptive innovations in the making as well as
startling results and bold arguments on current research directions.

* We will focus on a unique conference experience: The new Mentorship
program will connect you more efficiently with other attendees. Other
initiatives to improve the conference experience will be announced

* The Artifacts stream will collect and catalog reusable artifacts.

We look forward to your submissions!


The ACM SIGSOFT International Symposium on the Foundations of Software
Engineering (FSE) is an internationally renowned forum at which
researchers, practitioners, and educators present and discuss the most
recent innovations, trends, experiences, and challenges in software
engineering. We invite high quality submissions describing original
and unpublished results of theoretical, empirical, conceptual, and
experimental software engineering research. Contributions should
describe innovative and significant original research relevant to FSE.
In addition to research papers, we solicit Visions and Reflections
Papers, Showcase Papers, Demo Papers, and Industry Papers, as well as
Workshop Proposals. For students, FSE will host a Student Research
Competition and a Doctoral Symposium.

In 2016, FSE will be held in Seattle - a bustling seaport city in the
Pacific Northwest region of North America.


Submission deadlines (Anywhere on Earth):

Research papers: March 11, 2016
Workshop proposals: March 25, 2016
Visions and Reflections papers: June 15, 2016
Industry papers: June 15, 2016
Demo papers: June 15, 2016
Doctoral Symposium: June 15, 2016
Student Research Competition: June 15, 2016
Workshop papers: July 1, 2016

Note that the official publication date 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 FSE 2016. The official publication
date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published

Submissions of papers describing groundbreaking approaches to emerging
problems will also be considered. Submissions that facilitate
reproducibility by using available data sets or making the described
tools publicly available are especially encouraged.

Papers submitted for consideration should not have been already
published elsewhere and should not be under review or submitted for
review elsewhere during the duration of consideration. Specifically,
authors are required to adhere to the ACM Policy and Procedures on
Plagiarism and the ACM Policy on Prior Publication and Simultaneous
