Call for Papers

Goal and Scopes

The overarching goal of the ASE Late Breaking Ideas track is to provide a highly interactive and collaborative venue for ASE researchers of all backgrounds to conduct impactful, meaningful discussions about cutting edge or emerging work conducted related to automated software engineering.

The scopes and the topics of the LBR track are the same as the topics of the ASE 2020 research track.

A submission is expected to address a non-trivial problem by presenting a novel and sound method, but does not require preliminary results or a detailed evaluation in order to attract more recent work that is still in progress. Submissions which challenge the status-quo, have controversial ideas, or have late-breaking advances are encouraged. In addition, the LBR track provides a platform to seek comments and suggestions on ongoing work. We hope that the feedback from the LBR track will help research to mature to submissions to future top software engineering conferences. Please note that merely summarizing an existing paper does not qualify for this track.

Accepted LBR papers will be presented as part of an interactive poster session, where presenters and participants are encouraged to have a lively discussion about the work.

Evaluation Criteria

Each submission will be reviewed and evaluated in terms of the following quality criteria:

  • Crisp description of the problem and preliminary solution
  • Why is this work important?
  • How will this work be extended?
  • What is the Impact to the broader ASE community?

Proceedings (New to this year)

Accepted LBR paper authors have the option to include their paper in the official ASE 2020 proceedings. All authors of accepted LBR papers are encouraged to upload their papers on ArXiv.org. The ASE 2020 website will link to these papers and/or posters. For those not included in the official ASE proceedings, the copyright is retained by the authors. Formatting Each submission must not exceed 2 pages, including all text, appendices, figures, and must have at most 1 page of references. All submissions must be in PDF format and conform, at time of submission, to the ACM Proceedings Template at https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template (LaTEX users must use \documentclass[sigconf,review,anonymous]{acmart}). The review option adds line numbers, thereby allowing referees to refer to specific lines in their comments.

How to Submit

Papers must be submitted electronically through the ASE 2020 (LBR) HotCRP submission site.

By submitting to the ASE LBR Track, authors acknowledge that they are aware of and agree to be bound by the ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism (https://www.acm.org/publications/policies/plagiarism) and the IEEE Plagiarism FAQ (https://www.ieee.org/publications/rights/plagiarism/plagiarism-faq.html). In particular, papers submitted to ASE LBR 2020 must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere whilst under consideration for ASE LBR 2020.

Contravention of this concurrent submission policy will be deemed a serious breach of scientific ethics, and appropriate action will be taken in all such cases. To check for double submission and plagiarism issues, the chairs reserve the right to (1) share the list of submissions with the PC Chairs of other conferences with overlapping review periods and (2) use external plagiarism detection software, under contract to the ACM or IEEE, to detect violations of these policies.

Double Blind Submission Guidelines

The ASE LBR 2020 adopts a double-blind review process. No submitted paper may reveal its authors’ identities. The authors must make every effort to honor the double-blind review process; reviewers will be asked to honour the double-blind review process as much as possible. Any author having further questions on double blind reviewing is encouraged to contact the track’s program co-chairs by e-mail. Any submission that does not comply with the double blind review process will be desk-rejected. Further advice, guidance and explanation about the double-blind review process can be found in the Q&A page
