Submission Details

Submissions should present the most recent and significant technical contributions to the field of Software and Systems Engineering. We invite high quality submissions to be evaluated against the following criteria:

  • Soundness: The extent to which contributions are supported by rigorous application of appropriate research methods.
  • Significance: Demonstrating that contributions are novel, original, and important, with respect to the existing body of knowledge.
  • Verifiability: The presentation of sufficient information to support independent verification or replication of the claimed contributions,
  • Presentation: Achieving clear descriptions and explanations, adequate use of the English language, absence of major ambiguity, clearly readable figures and tables, and adherence to the formatting instructions provided below.

This year, we invite submissions under three categories: Regular, Short, Poster:

  • Regular papers should not exceed 11 pages, 10 pages for the main text (including figures, appendix etc.) and 1 page for references in standard ACM format. Regular papers contain full descriptions that constitute contributions to knowledge and are evaluated against the criteria given above.
  • Short papers should not exceed 5 pages, including references in standard ACM format. Short papers should clearly demonstrate that the work is a contribution to knowledge, but may be incomplete in terms of being able to demonstrate one or more of soundness, significance, or verifiability.
  • Poster papers should not exceed 2 pages. A poster paper is intended to describe work that is at an early stage in development. Accepted poster papers will be provided with an opportunity to display a poster and to discuss the ideas with delegatesduring a dedicated session of the conference.

Regular paper submissions are expected to contain in-depth descriptions of the new ideas along with detailed evaluation, and when relevant rigorously consider reasonable broader impacts, both positive and negative, e.g. in a separate “Broader Impacts” section (refer to the blog post: https://acm-fca.org/2018/03/29/negativeimpacts/).

Submissions may take the form of experience reports or case studies. In particular we would welcome such submissions from Industry. Experience reports and case studies should address the application of software engineering practices (which may include work on principles, techniques, tools, methods, processes) to a specific business domain or to the development of a substantial software platform/system. Each paper should describe the context of a problem of practical importance and provide plausible solutions. Please take care to cover the following issues: innovation of the approach and the solution, the methodology, assessment of the benefits, risks and lessons learned.

Short papers may contain, for example, new interesting ideas which may not be evaluated extensively, tool descriptions or case studies.

Submissions must comply with the ACM plagiarism policy and procedures. In particular, it must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review elsewhere while under review for ISEC. The submission must also comply with the IEEE Policy on Authorship.
Accepted papers in all categories will be published in the ACM Digital Library and indexed by DBLP.If a submission is accepted, at least one author of the paper is required to attend the conference and present the paper in person.

PhD Symposium

1. Invitation

The ISEC 2021 PhD Symposium invites Ph. D. scholars to submit papers in all areas related to Software Engineering research.

2. Objective of the Ph. D. Symposium

The Ph. D. Symposium is a friendly platform where Ph. D. scholars may present their work and get useful and valuable feedback from established researchers. The forum is also an excellent opportunity to compare notes with peer scholars from other institutions and get useful tips and informal advice from other researchers at the conference. The forum provides an accessible entry point to Ph. D. students into the software engineering research community. In the long run, the forum is one way of strengthening the larger community of software engineering researchers.

3. Who can submit?

The Ph. D. symposium is targeted at Ph. D. students in software engineering who are currently in between the preliminary stage of their Ph. D. at the penultimate stage of their Ph. D. A student is at the preliminary stage, when the student has at least identified a research topic, and ideally a problem. A student is at the penultimate stage when that student has almost completed all the research work and is ready to write the dissertation.

4. Submission Process

The submission process involves two steps:

  1. A letter from the thesis supervisor, including the name of the student, the topic the student is working on, when the student started the Ph. D. at what stage is the Ph. D. student in the Ph. D.programme and the expected date of completion of Ph. D. The letter should be emailed to the ISEC 2021 Ph. D. Symposium Chairs.
  2. A paper describing authored solely by the Ph. D. student describing the research, and preliminary results if any. The paper should be limited to 4 pages including references.  The link for submission will be added soon.

5. What is expected in a submission?

Reviewers will look for the followings in a submission:

  1. A clear statement of the research problem.
  2. Motivation for the problem: Why is the problem relevant, interesting, useful to solve and nontrivial?
  3. Related work that clearly situates the problem, the student’s approach to solve it, and why the approach is novel and sound.
  4. Results if any, and how the results support the author’ research hypotheses or claims. If no results are as yet available, a roadmap of the work and methodology needed to arrive at the results
  5. A timeline to complete the thesis work.

6. Submission Format

All papers are to be typeset using guidelines provided by the ACM Master Article Template. The guidelines allow for papers to be written in both LaTeX or Word.

6.1 For LaTeX users

  1. The acmart.cls class and ACM-Reference-Format.bst bibliography style file should be used without modification.
  2. The preamble should enable conference and review modes: \documentclass[sigconf,review]{acmart}
  3. The bibliography style should use the ACM Reference format: \bibliographystyle{ACM-Reference-Format}

7. Deadlines

All times are AoE (Anywhere on Earth: UTC -12:00)

  1. [2020-10-15 Thu]: Letter from PhD supervisor.
  2. [2020-10-15 Thu]: Submission of paper by PhD student.
  3. [2020-12-01 Tue]: Notification of acceptance or rejection.
  4. [2021-01-01 Fri]: Camera Ready copy due.
