Call For Papers

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 (IP), 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, dissatisfaction regarding the state of interaction between research and practice is not hard to find. 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 IP. 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.

Topics/Scope

The workshop will have paper presentations, practitioners’ talk 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
- The role and practice of open source in industry academia collaboration
- Challenges, issues, bottlenecks and gaps in adoption of research;
- Existing research and systematic methods which are beneficial but ignored by the industry
- Examples of what industry wants from research and what research wants from 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
- Stories and practices from SE research-practice partnerships

Submission guidelines

SER&IP 2018 is soliciting regular and short papers as well as talk proposals. Regular papers should not exceed 8 pages, short papers should not exceed 4 pages and talk proposals should not exceed two-page extended abstract and 15 minutes presentation/video. Papers and abstract should conform to the ICSE submission format and guidelines. Please submit the papers in PDF format on EasyChair.

Papers and talk proposals 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. All submissions will be reviewed by three program committee members. The program committee will review all submissions for impact, lessons learnt, scale of knowledge, technology transfer, novelty, quality, relevance, and their potential to trigger discussions at the workshop.

The accepted workshop papers, both regular and short, and two page extended abstracts will be published in the ICSE 2018 workshop proceedings in the ACM Digital Library. Authors of accepted papers and talks are required to register and present the paper at the workshop for the paper and or 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 ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of ICSE 2018. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
