Submission Categories

We invite you to contribute to this premier conference by submitting to any of the categories below:

Research Papers Present recent research results with an archival quality.
Experience Reports Provide an in-depth description of practitioner experience or a case study.
Short Papers Present a promising idea at an early stage.
Posters Discussion-provoking display of emerging ideas, targeted to PhD students.
Workshops Opportunity for focused discussion on selected topics in a group setting.
Tutorials Short courses on the conference theme methodologies and theories.
Panels Discuss and debate topics of high interest with leading experts from the CSEE&T community.
Birds of a feather An informal discussion forum for those interested in the same issues and concepts.

Research Papers
Authors are invited to submit papers describing original research in all areas of SE education and training. Papers describing theoretical or empirical research, new techniques and tools, novel interpretation and in-depth case studies are all welcome. Submissions should be original and should not have been published previously or currently be under consideration for publication elsewhere.
Paper submissions will be reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical quality and relevance to the field of software engineering education in accordance with IEEE requirements. Research papers will be double-blind reviewed. Please ensure there is no author identification information in either the paper or the properties of the document. As in previous years, the proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press.
Please read the CSEET Research Guide prior to preparing your paper. The paper length is limited to 8 pages, formatted according to IEEE 6" x 9" specifications. See the IEEE formatting requirements and get the MS Word template for full formatting details. The official directory at the IEEE Computer Society site contains other formatting files, including a LaTeX style file.
One author from each accepted paper is required to register as a full- fee delegate and present the paper at the conference.
Experience Reports
The objective of experience reports is to discuss results (both good and bad), obstacles, and lessons learned associated with education and training for SE from the perspective of practitioners in industry or government. Such "real world" experience shared with educators provides valuable input into future directions for education and allows others to learn from successes and failures.
Experience Reports may be submitted either as full papers (complying with the submission requirements and dates of Research Papers) or as Short Papers.
One author from each accepted paper is required to register as a delegate and present the paper at the conference.
Experience Reports submitted as full papers will be formally reviewed and published in the Conference Proceedings.
Short Papers
Short paper submissions that address software engineering education and training topics are also invited. Short papers may discuss an idea at an early stage, or a promising idea that may lack complete evaluation. The paper length for short papers is limited to 4 pages, formatted according to IEEE 6" x 9" specifications.
Short papers will be reviewed. Each accepted short paper will be presented by an author in a conference session, and will appear in the IEEE digital library.
The abstract only of short papers will appear in the conference proceedings.
Emerging ideas for research, teaching practice, or tools can be presented as posters. The posters are evaluated based on their originality and the possible future contribution to the field of SE Education & Training. Submissions from students are encouraged.
Poster acceptance is based on a 300 word abstract of the work to be presented, formatted according to IEEE 6" x 9" specifications.
Authors of posters are not required to register for the conference, but, if attending, can be scheduled to talk about their work with conference participants.
The abstract only of posters will appear in the conference proceedings.
Chair: Lynn Carter, Carnegie Mellon, Qatar

Workshop of various lengths will be included in the conference program. These enable participants to exchange experiences and opinions. Workshop organisers should have a strategy for managing attendance.
Please submit your 2 page proposals directly to the Workshops Chair, detailing:
the topic, theme and goals
presenter/s and their affiliations
intended audience and the preparation required of them
activities and format
anticipated time requirements.

The proposal should be formatted according to IEEE 6" x 9" specifications.
Once a workshop has been accepted, workshop organizers are responsible for authoring a call for participation and submitting it to the PC Chairs as well as advertising their workshops in appropriate places to attract attendees.
Tutorials enable participants to learn more about a topic relevant to the conference theme, and will normally take place over either 1/2 day or a full day.
Please submit your 4 page proposals directly to the PC Chairs, detailing:
the topic, theme and goals in detail
presenter/s and an indication of their expertise in the topic proposed
intended audience and the preparation required of them
discussion of how the tutorial will be presented
anticipated time requirements.

The proposal should be formatted according to IEEE 6" x 9" specifications.

Chair: Lynn Carter, Carnegie Mellon, Qatar

Panel sessions allow the audience to interact with panelist who provides an engaging, informative and entertaining discussion of a timely topic from multiple perspectives.
A panel session proposal is evaluated by its anticipated impact on discussions during the conference.
Please submit your proposals directly to the Panels Chair, detailing:
the topic and how it meets the needs of the CSEE&T audience (1 page),
biographies and position statements of each of the panelists (maximum 1 page)
biography of the proposed moderator.
The Panel session moderator should have a strategy for promoting discussion between the panelists and the audience.
The proposal should be formatted according to IEEE 6" x 9" specifications.

Birds of a Feather
A Birds of a Feather (BoF) session provides a gathering place and discussion forum for those interested in the same issues and concepts. BoFs can be organized for sharing ideas on specific topics, narrow or broad. These are not workshops or sessions where people present papers, but open, "brainstorming" forums for attendees who want to get together with others to share their current interests, goals, technology, environment, or backgrounds. BoFs are popular because of their interactive and flexible format and the fact that they offer attendees and technology experts an opportunity to interact at a peer level.
If you want to organize and run a Birds of a Feather session, please send a descriptive proposal to the PC chairs.
Topics will be evaluated on the basis of their promise to engage a significant number of the conferences participants in a fruitful discussion. Possible examples include:
Project based learning in SE.
e-Learning in SE.
Educating for a globalized software development.

While we would welcome BoF organizers for the above topics, the purpose of this CFP is to ask you to propose topics around which a community of interested researchers would coalesce at CSEE&T2010. We are explicitly not looking for marketing or recruiting sessions; however, commercial entities are encouraged to propose sessions on current technical issues.
