Call for Papers: Software Engineering in Practice Track

The purpose of SEIP (Software Engineering in Practice) track offers a unique opportunity for practitioners from industry and academia to share their valuable experiences, insights, pragmatic research issues and the best practices in the software engineering community. As part of the APSEC2023 conference, the SEIP Track aims to foster collaboration and mutual learning between these two vital sectors. We welcome submissions from industrial practitioners and academic researchers that align with the general topics outlined in the technical research track, as well as emerging technical topics such as AI, autonomous, safety, SoS(System of systems).

Topics of Interest

The major topics of SEIP 2023 include the following, but not limited to:

  • Verification and validation of machine learning systems
  • Software safety engineering in autonomous systems such as autonomous vehicles
  • Software safety in functional safety, STPA/STAMP and other safety disciplines
  • Software engineering on connected world including SoS
  • Generative AI and software engineering
  • Emerging methodology in software engineering
  • Difficulties, issues, and challenges from SE in practice
  • Introducing of new standards in SE
  • Best practices in traditional software engineering

Evaluation Criteria

Each submission will be meticulously reviewed by a minimum of three members of the SEIP Program Committee. The evaluation process will consider industry relevance, originality, soundness, empirical and/or practical validation, as well as the quality and coherence of the presentation. Please note that, unlike the technical research track, the SEIP track does NOT necessitate double-anonymous reviews.

Submission Guideline

Submitted papers must have been neither previously accepted for publication nor concurrently submitted for review in another journal, book, conference, or workshop.

All submissions must be in English and must come in A4 paper size PDF format and conform, at the time of submission, to the IEEE Conference Proceedings Formatting Guidelines (title in 24pt font and full text in 10pt font, LaTeX users must use \documentclass[10pt,conference]{IEEEtran} without including the compsoc or compsocconf option). Also, papers must comply with the IEEE Policy on Authorship. Submissions must be submitted electronically in PDF before the due date via EasyChair.

An SEIP paper must not exceed 10 pages for the main text, including appendices, figures, tables, and references(short papers around 5 pages are also welcomed). The Chairs reserve the right to reject submissions (without reviews) that are not in compliance or out of scope for the conference.

Important Dates

  • Paper Deadline: Friday, Aug 25, 2023 Wednesday, Aug 30, 2023
  • Author Notification: Friday, October 6, 2023
  • Camera Ready Deadline: Friday, October 20, 2023

Submission Link

Papers must be submitted through EasyChair: submission link

Accepted Papers and Attendance Expectation

All accepted papers will be submitted to the CS Digital Library as the APSEC 2023 conference proceedings. If a submission is accepted, at least one author of the paper is required to register for and attend the conference to present the paper. The presentation is expected to be delivered in person, unless this is impossible due to travel restrictions (related to, e.g., health, visa, etc.). “If an accepted paper is not presented, the paper is removed from the proceedings.
