Call for Contributions - Technical Papers
ESEC/FSE 2007 main track invites academic and industrial researchers to submit high-quality Technical Papers: these must present results of theoretical or empirical research, clearly identifying their contribution to the state of the art and/or their potential usefulness for industry. Experience papers which report interesting "lessons learned" of benefit to the broad ESEC/FSE audience are welcome as well.
Contributions on any field of Software Engineering are invited, including, but not limited to:
- Requirements Engineering
- Specification and Verification
- Software Architecture and Design
- Analysis and Testing
- Development Paradigms and Software Processes
- Evolution and Refactoring
- Tools and Environments
- Empirical Software Engineering
- Software Metrics
- Software Quality and Performance
- Component-based Software Engineering
- Model Driven Engineering
- Web Applications
- Distributed Systems and Middleware
- Service Oriented Applications
- Mobile and Embedded System
- Open Standards and Certification
- Software Economics and Human Resources
- Dependability (safety, security, reliability)
- Case Studies and Experience Reports
Paper submissions will be made electronically via the ESEC/FSE 2007 submission web page,
using the CyberChair service. All submissions must be original work, and must not have been
previously published, nor be under consideration for publication, elsewhere
(see also ACM policy
and procedures with respect to plagiarism). Both an abstract and the full paper must
be submitted together by the submission deadline.
Papers must be submitted as PDF and strictly adhere
to ACM proceedings format.
Papers must not exceed ten (10) pages in this format, including all text, references, appendices,
and figures (submissions exceeding 10 pages will be summarily rejected by the PC Chair without review).
Evaluation: Paper submissions will be reviewed by the ESEC/FSE 2007 Program Committee for originality, relevance, soundness, and quality of presentation. Papers must clearly identify their contribution, by explicitly stating the new results, their significance and their relation with previous work. They should be accessible to a wide audience.
Acceptance Accepted papers must be accompanied by a signed ACM copyright release form and must be presented at the conference by one of the authors, without exception. All accepted contributions will be published in the ESEC/FSE 2007 conference proceedings, which will be distributed at the conference in electronic format and will be included in the ACM Digital Library.
