ESEC/FSE 2019 : The ACM Joint European Software Engineering Conference and Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering
Call For Papers
Call for Research Papers
We invite high-quality submissions describing original and unpublished results of theoretical, empirical, conceptual, and experimental software engineering research. Contributions should describe innovative and significant original research. Papers describing groundbreaking
approaches to emerging problems will also be considered. Submissions that facilitate reproducibility by using available data sets or making the described tools publicly available are especially encouraged.
Papers submitted to ESEC/FSE for consideration should not have been already published elsewhere and should not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere during the reviewing period. Specifically, authors are required to adhere to the ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism and the ACM Policy on Prior Publication and Simultaneous Submissions.
Topics of Interest
We are interested in submissions from both industry and academia on all topics related to software engineering. These include, but are not limited to:
Architecture and design
Autonomic computing and (self-)adaptive systems
Components, services, and middleware
Computer-supported cooperative work
Configuration management and deployment
Dependability, safety, and reliability
Development tools and environments
Distributed, parallel, and concurrent software
Embedded and real-time software
Empirical software engineering
End-user software engineering
Formal methods, including languages, methods, and tools
Human and social factors in software engineering
Knowledge based software engineering
Mobile, ubiquitous, and pervasive software
Model-driven software engineering
Patterns and frameworks
Policy and ethics
Processes and workflows
Program comprehension and visualization
Search-based software engineering
Security and privacy
Software economics and metrics
Software evolution and maintenance
Software product lines
Specification and verification
How to Submit
At the time of submission all papers must conform to the ESEC/FSE 2019 Format and Submission Guidelines, and must not exceed 10 pages for all text and figures plus 2 pages for references (abstract: 250 words max). All submissions must be in English and in PDF format. You can submit, optionally, an additional file containing supplementary material (see details below). Submissions that do not comply with the above instructions will be desk rejected without review.
Papers must be submitted electronically through the ESEC/FSE submission site.
Each submission will be reviewed by three members of the Program Committee. Authors will have an opportunity to respond to reviews during a rebuttal period. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of originality, importance of contribution, soundness, evaluation, quality of presentation and appropriate comparison to related work. The program committee as a whole will make final decisions about which submissions to accept for presentation at the conference.
ESEC/FSE 2019 will employ a double-blind review process. The papers submitted must not reveal the authors’ identities in any way:
Authors should leave out author names and affiliations from the body of their submission.
Authors should ensure that any citation to related work by themselves is written in third person, that is, “the prior work of XYZ” as opposed to “our prior work”.
Authors should avoid providing URLs to author-revealing sites (tools, data sets). The paper can mention the existence of such sites, but the visit of such sites should not be needed to conduct the review. You can submit, optionally, a zip file or a pdf file containing supplementary material (raw data, data sets, experiments, etc.), which should also be blinded. The program committee will not necessarily consider it in the paper review process.
Authors should anonymize author-revealing company names, yet can provide general characteristics of the organizations involved needed to understand the context of the paper.
The paper anonymity will be maintained also during the reviewers’ discussion period and the authors’ rebuttal period. Authors must therefore maintain the anonymity in their responses, during the rebuttal phase, and provide no additional information that would otherwise be author-revealing.
Authors having further questions on double blind reviewing are encouraged to contact the Program Chairs by email. Papers that do not comply to the double blind review process will be desk-rejected.
All publications are subject to the ACM Author Representations policy.
