Mon 11 - Fri 15 October 2021

Welcome to the website of the ESEM 2021 conference, the 15th ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Empirical Software Engineering and Measurement.

ESEM is the premier conference for presenting research results related to empirical software engineering. ESEM provides a stimulating forum where researchers and practitioners can present and discuss recent research results on a wide range of topics, in addition to exchanging ideas, experiences and challenging problems.

ESEM will be virtual again in 2021 due to the uncertainty about the evolution of COVID-19

We will miss hosting you in Bari but we will take advantage of this unfortunate situation to strengthen open participation

We are working to fill the website with all related information. Please check back soon!


If you do not have a paper to be included in the conference proceedings, the registration is for FREE. If a co-author has registered for your paper in the proceedings, the registrations is still for free.

Please complete the registration BEFORE the conference starts.
