Workshop Aim
The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss the current state of Software Engineering (SE) research and industrial practice, and advance collaboration to reduce the gap between research and practice. Research and business are coupled for the software companies, which are transforming intellectual property into products, services and business concepts. However, proper synchronisation is missing between SE research and practice. Therefore, the challenges are to identify the gaps and to discover ways of improving collaboration, for the mutual benefit of research and industrial practice.

Different perceptions and expectations are obstacles to collaboration between SE researchers and practitioners. Researchers have a view that practitioners are reluctant to share real industry data due to confidentiality agreements. Practitioners believe that researchers are mostly working on either dated or futuristic theoretical challenges, which are very far from practice. Researchers believe that practitioners are looking for quick fixes to their problems instead of using systematic methods or engaging in-depth research. Practitioners have a view that case studies in research do not represent the complexities of real projects and have doubts in the results produced by research. Researchers expect good problems along with real industry data and a few years to generate good publications, which may affect a specific domain in a limited way. Practitioners expect a quick general solution, which must earn substantial profit immediately. 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 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
· How each side can participate in the issues, needs, and demands of the other
· 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 2017 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 two-page extended abstract and 15 minutes presentation or video. Papers and abstracts should conform to the ICSE formatting and submission guidelines ( Please submit the papers, abstracts and presentations in PDF format and videos in MP4 format on EasyChair (

Papers should be original and unpublished material describing innovative and mature research results, experience reports, case studies, challenges, problems and solutions, ongoing work, new ideas, new results and future trends. Papers submitted to SER&IP 2017 must be in English and must not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere while under consideration for SER&IP 2017. Three program committee members will review all submissions. The program committee will review all papers for novelty, quality, relevance, and their potential to trigger discussions at the workshop. Talk proposals will be selected based on the submitted two-page extended abstract and 15 minutes presentation or video. The selection of talks will be made to ensure a good mix of views, opinions, experiences and potential to trigger discussions rather than any novelty and quality measures of the talk proposals.

The accepted workshop papers, both regular and short, and two-page extended abstracts will be published in the ICSE workshop proceedings in the IEEE Digital Library. Authors of accepted papers and talks are required to register and present the paper or talk at the workshop in order for the paper and extended abstract to be included in the proceedings. The official publication date of the workshop proceedings is the date the proceedings are made available in the IEEE Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of ICSE 2017. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
