Call For Papers

The ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Empirical Software Engineering and
Measurement (ESEM) is the premier conference for presenting research
results related to empirical software engineering. These include results
-empirical methods as well as the design and analysis of empirical studies,
ranging from controlled experiments to case studies and from quantitative
to qualitative studies;
- the strengths and weaknesses of software engineering technologies and
methods from a strong empirical viewpoint, including quantitative,
qualitative, and mixed studies; and
- the systematic use of data and measurement to understand, evaluate, and
model software engineering phenomena.

ESEM provides a stimulating forum where researchers and practitioners can
present and discuss recent research results on a wide range of topics, in
addition to exchanging ideas, experiences and challenging problems. The
11th edition of ESEM 2017 conference will be held in Toronto, Canada from
November 9th to 10th, 2017 (

Relevant topics include, but are not restricted to, the following:
• Empirical studies using qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods
• Cross- and multi-disciplinary methods and studies
• Experiments and quasi-experiments
• Case studies, action research, and field studies
• Survey research

• Systematic literature reviews that include a strong synthesis part (not
just mapping studies)
• Meta-analysis, qualitative and quantitative synthesis of studies
• Replication of empirical studies and families of studies

• Modelling, measuring, and assessing product and/or process quality
• Development and evaluation of empirical prediction systems or software
estimation models
• Mining software engineering repositories
• Simulation-based studies in software engineering
• New ideas pertaining to empirical evaluation of software engineering
technologies, methods, and tools, e.g., transferring and applying empirical
methods from other disciplines to empirical software engineering

• Empirically-based decision making
• Evaluation and comparison of techniques and models
• Assessing the benefits/costs associated with using certain development
• Industrial experience, software project experience, and knowledge
• Software technology transfer to industry
• Infrastructures and novel techniques/tools for supporting any phase of
empirical studies
The symposium encourages the submission of both novel work and replication
studies. We explicitly encourage the submission of empirical studies with
negative results (i.e., studies that did not deliver the expected results).

For all papers, a structured abstract is required with the headings:
Background, Aims, Method, Results, and Conclusions. Papers should contain
an explicit description of the empirical strategy they use or address.
Submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three experts from the
international program committee.

All submissions must be written in English. Any papers that exceed the
maximum number of pages given for the respective category, or are outside
the scope of the symposium, or do not follow the formatting guidelines will
be rejected without review.

All papers must be submitted through in PDF format. Please
select the appropriate track (see below) for your submission.

Accepted contributions must have a minimum of one author registration by
the time of the deadline for the camera-ready submission for the respective
paper type. Each accepted paper needs to have one registration at the full
conference rate. For a second (or further) paper(s), the author can get a
50% discount on the respective registrations.

——————Full paper submission
Papers should describe original, unpublished work, which is not under
parallel submission elsewhere. Papers are limited to 10 pages, must be
written in English, and must be formatted in PDF format according to the
IEEE manuscript template for conference proceedings:

Any papers that exceed 10 pages, or are outside the scope of the symposium,
or do not follow the formatting guidelines will be rejected without review.
Full papers must be submitted through the Web-based submission system
(please select track "Full Papers").

——————Short paper submission
The goal of short papers is to promote current work on research and
practice. Short papers represent an early communication of research and do
not always require complete evaluation of results as in the case of a full
paper. In this way, authors can introduce new ideas to the community,
discuss ideas and get early feedback. Please note that short papers are NOT
intended to be position statements. Short papers must be written in English
and submitted through the Web-based submission system (please select track
"Short Papers"), using PDF format. Short papers must not exceed 6 pages and
must be formatted according to the IEEE manuscript template for conference

——————Industrial paper submission
The ESEM Industry track is one of the major forums to disseminate results
(positive or negative) concerning the experience of applying/evaluating
software engineering technologies (methods, techniques and tools) in real
industrial settings. The track provides researchers with industrial
collaborations and industry contributors with an opportunity to publish
empirical studies conducted in industry (e.g., action research, case
studies) or experience reports that may help understanding situations in
which technologies really work and their impact. Submissions should include
information on the industrial setting, provide motivation, explain the
events leading to the outcomes, including the challenges faced, summarize
the outcomes, and conclude with lessons learned, take-away messages, and
advice based on the described experience. An extensive description of
related work or background material is not required. At least one
contributing author must be from industry. Papers may be between 6 and 10
pages in length and must be formatted according to the IEEE manuscript
template for conference proceedings:

——————Poster submission
The ESEM Poster Sessions provide an excellent forum for authors to present
their work in an informal and interactive setting. Posters are ideal for
presenting speculative, late-breaking results, or for presenting new and
innovative work. Poster Sessions separate themselves from the Short Paper
Sessions by allowing authors the ability to get immediate, personal
feedback from conference attendees during the break sessions as they
present their work. Posters also provide conference attendees an
opportunity to see emerging work in the field. Successful posters are
carefully designed to convey technical details. They should also attract
the attention of attendees as they stroll past the displays. The goal is to
develop a poster that encourages and facilitates small groups of
individuals interested in a technical area to gather and interact. Posters
that present work in progress and draw important conclusions from practical
experience are especially welcome. Posters must be submitted through the
Web-based submission system (please select track "Posters"), using PDF
format. Poster proposals must not exceed 2 pages and must be formatted
according to the IEEE manuscript template for conference proceedings:

——————Doctoral Symposium
The objective of the International Doctoral Symposium on Empirical Software
Engineering (IDoESE) is to provide early- and mid-stage PhD students with a
forum to discuss their work, ask questions to senior researchers, and
receive constructive feedback on their PhD topics and research plans. The
symposium comprises presentations by PhD students to a panel of senior
faculty and research scientists, who will provide ideas, questions, and
other feedback to the students. The symposium will also feature light
workshop activities to help students engage the faculty. Further details
will be announced on the website.
