CONISOFT 2018 : 6th International Conference on Software Engineering Research and Innovation
Call For Papers
The 6th International Conference on Software Engineering Research and Innovation (CONISOFT 2018) will be held in San Luis Potosi, SLP, México on October 24-26, 2018. The aim of the conference is to bring together practitioners and researchers from academia, industry and government to advance the state of the art in Software Engineering, as well as generate synergy between academia and industry to define an agenda for collaboration to support and promote the development of the software industry in México and at the international level. Papers that combine theory and practice in Software Engineering are especially welcome.
Technically Co-Sponsored by IEEE (to be confirmed)
The following paper categories are welcome:
Track 1: Scientific papers (original research, basic and experimental). Papers written in English or Spanish. Works will be presented as long papers (up to 10 pages.)
Track 2:Teaching experiences. Papers written in English or Spanish. Works will be presented as short papers (up to 6 pages.)
Track 3: Work in progress: Bachelor, Master and Doctorate works. Papers written in English or Spanish. Works will be presented as short papers (up to 6 pages.)
Track 4: Industry experience papers (situations experienced in the industry, success stories). Papers written in English or Spanish. Works will be presented as short papers (up to 6 pages.)
Papers must be original works, not have been published before, nor subjected simultaneously to other events.
Submitted papers will be evaluated by an international technical committee composed of renowned researchers and professionals, which can be consulted in the Web site of the conference.
The characteristics of the types of works and their structure can be consulted in the Web site of the conference. To prepare your paper, please use the “guide for authors” of the IEEE Computer Society editorial board:

General Chair: Reyes Juárez Ramírez (México); Héctor Gerardo Pérez González, CONISOFT co-chair, (México)
(a) Accepted papers in English, from Track 1, will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore and other indexing databases.
(b) Accepted papers, from Tracks 2, 3 and 4 (and Spanish papers from Track 1), will be integrated and published either in the electronic memories (with ISBN) of the conference —edited by the CONISOFT 2018 Organizing Committee— or in the journal Abstraction and Application.
(c) Based on the quality of the submissions, we are considering publishing best papers in a post-workshop special issue of distinguished journals (This could require an additional payment to the journal). We have secured two journals and some more are being considered:
• Revista Ibérica de Sistemas e Tecnologias de Informação
• Journal of Information Systems Engineering and Management
Authors will be required to provide expanded versions of their submissions, which will undergo an additional review process for inclusion in the special issue.
The conference will be held in School of Engineering, Autonomous University of San Luis Potosi (UASLP), SLP, México.
San Luis Potosí is the capital and the most populous city in the Mexican state of San Luis Potosí. The city is named after Louis IX of France, who is the city's patron saint. San Luis Potosí's historic center displays a great mixture of different artistic styles in many buildings and is a major example of colonial architecture in México. In 2010, the historic center was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site within Camino Real de Tierra Adentro.
