APSEC 2024
Tue 3 - Fri 6 December 2024 Chongqing, China

The Asia-Pacific Software Engineering Conference (APSEC) has long been established as a leading regional conference that gathers researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, and government to exchange knowledge and best practices in software engineering, and to address emerging challenges and solutions in software engineering innovation. This year’s APSEC will be held on December 3-6, 2024 in Chongqing, China. APSEC 2024 will continue in the tradition of previous editions of this regional conference. As in past APSEC series, the main research track features the most recent and significant innovations in the field of software engineering and all its sub-disciplines. APSEC 2024 also invites submissions of high-quality research papers that describe original and unpublished results on theoretical and empirical software engineering research topics.

APSEC 2024 will offer an extensive program of interest to academia, government, and industry. It will include several distinguished keynote speakers and conference days of paper presentations and demos. A series of exciting tutorials to develop skills in various aspects of software engineering practices is of particular interest to the industry. Co-located workshops offer forums for participants to present novel techniques and methods in specific sub-disciplines of software engineering.

[ The timing for more specific details is still pending ]

The conference has four days, including three days for the main conference and one day for workshops/tutorials. The main conference will include two or three keynotes, a fully refereed research paper track, a short paper track, a SEIP (industry) track, and an education track. All the refereed papers will be published through the IEEE Digital Library. Best Paper awards for each track will be selected by the program committees.

A conference banquet will be held during the main conference days. We will also plan an excursion for all participants.
