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.
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.
