CONISOFT 2019 : IEEE 7th International Conference on Software Engineering Research and Innovation
Call For Papers
The 7th International Conference on Software Engineering Research and Innovation (CONISOFT 2019) and the 3rd National Congress of Measurement and Estimation of Software (CNMES2019) will be held in Mexico City (CDMX, Mexico on October 23-25, 2019. 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.
*If required, in this edition we will be allowing virtual presentations for international authors.*
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.)
Track 5: CNMES2019: Papers (original research, basic and experimental) up to 10 pages, Industrial case studies related to formal metrics, mainly functional size measurement and estimation, 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:

(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, 4 and 5 (and Spanish papers from Track 1), will be integrated and published in an indexed journal (to be confirmed).
(c) Based on the quality of the submissions, we are considering publishing best papers in a post-workshop special book in Springer (This could require an additional payment to Springer).
Authors will be required to provide expanded versions of their submissions, which will undergo an additional review process for inclusion in the special edition.
CONISOFT 2019 is hosted by Palacio de Minería, Facutlad de Ingeniería, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Mexico City.
The Palace of Mining, also Palace of Mines, (Spanish: Palacio de Minería) in Mexico City is one of the masterpieces of Neoclassical architecture in the Americas. It was designed and built between 1797 and 1813 by Valencian Spanish sculptor and architect Manuel Tolsá. It was built to house the Royal School of Mines and Mining of the Royal Court at the request of its director, Fausto Elhuyar, a scientifically-trained mineralogist. Later it housed other institutions such as the National University, the School of Engineering, College of Mines and the Physics Institute of the National Autonomous University of Mexico.
Mexico City, or the City of Mexico, is the capital of Mexico and the most populous city in North America. Mexico City is one of the most important cultural and financial centres in the Americas. It is located in the Valley of Mexico (Valle de México), a large valley in the high plateaus in the center of Mexico, at an altitude of 2,240 meters (7,350 ft).
