Call for Insightful Ideas and Emerging Results Papers
SBES 2018: 32nd Brazilian Symposium on Software Engineering
September 17 - 21, 2018 São Carlos, São Paulo, Brazil

The Brazilian Symposium on Software Engineering (SBES), annually promoted by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC), is the premier Software Engineering event in Latin America. SBES is held in conjunction with CBSoft - Brazilian Conference on Software: Theory and Practice, which traditionally gathers nearly 600 people, including academics, practitioners, and students. SBES includes three tracks: Research, Insightful Ideas and Emerging Results, and Education Tracks. For details of the Research and Education tracks, please refer to the specific calls for papers or access the conference website.

This track focuses on new and inspiring ideas with promising future results, as well as on research work in progress with preliminary and interesting results. The track welcomes innovative new software engineering approaches - methods, techniques, tools - in early stages of research. Papers on this track are reviewed based on its novelty, relevance, technical soundness, and clarity of presentation. The track has been organized since SBES 2015 and the previous proceedings are available at the IEEE (2015) or ACM (2016 and 2017) digital libraries.

We invite submissions from academia, government, and industry presenting novel research and ideas on all aspects of software engineering, including but not limited to the topics listed in the main research track:
- Agent-oriented software engineering
- Agile development
- Configuration management and deployment
- CSCW and software engineering
- Experimental software engineering
- Industrial applications of software engineering
- Mining software repository
- Mobile application development
- Model-driven software development
- Requirements engineering
- Search-based software engineering
- Social aspects of software engineering
- Software architecture
- Software dependability
- Software ecosystems and systems of systems
- Software engineering education and training
- Software engineering for cloud computing
- Software engineering for the world wide web
- Software maintenance and evolution
- Software metrics and measurement
- Software modularity
- Software processes
- Software product lines
- Software reengineering
- Software reuse
- Software quality and quality models
- Software verification & validation
- Technical debt management
- Theoretical foundations and formal methods

Papers can be written in Portuguese or English. Submission in English is strongly encouraged since the symposium proceedings will be indexed by the ACM Digital Library. Submitted papers must not have been simultaneously submitted to any other forum (conference or journal), nor should they have already been published elsewhere. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper in person during the event or the paper will not be included in the proceedings. All submissions must be in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) and must comply with the ACM 2-column conference (ACM_SigConf) format available at They must be no longer than 6 pages, including all figures and references. Papers should be submitted electronically through JEMS system ( All submitted papers should inform after the abstract the language in which the paper was written. Submissions that are not in compliance with the required submission format or that are out of the scope of the symposium will be rejected without reviewing. All other papers will be reviewed by at least three Program Committee members.

Paper registration (abstract submission) deadline: May 18
Paper upload deadline: May 25
Notification of acceptance: July 11
Camera-ready deadline: July 25
