Call for Papers

ASE is inviting journal-first presentations for papers published recently in prestigious software engineering journals. This will both enrich the ASE program as well as offer the authors an opportunity to speak to the community. The journal-first manuscripts are published through the journals and will not be part of the ASE proceedings. The journal-first papers will be listed in the conference program. At least one author of each presentation accepted for the journal-first program must register and attend the conference to present the paper.

Scope

We invite applications for journal papers published in:

  • Automated Software Engineering Journal (Springer)
  • IEEE Transaction of Software Engineering (IEEE TSE)
  • ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology (ACM TOSEM)
  • Empirical Software Engineering Journal (Springer)
  • Journal of Systems and Software (JSS)

A journal-first presentation submitted to ASE 2022 must adhere to the following criteria:

  • The paper was accepted for publication not earlier than January 1st 2021 and no later than May 31st, 2022
  • The paper is in the scope of the conference, as defined in the call for ASE 2022 research papers
  • The paper does not exclusively report a secondary study, e.g., systematic reviews, mapping studies, surveys
  • The paper reports completely new research results and/or presents novel contributions that significantly extend and were not previously reported in prior work. The paper does not extend prior work solely with additional proofs or algorithms (or other such details presented for completeness), additional empirical results, or minor enhancements or variants of the results presented in the prior work. As a rough guide, a journal-first paper should have at least 70% new content over and above the content of previous publications. As such, the expectation is that an extension of a full 8-10 page conference or workshop paper would not be deemed a journal-first paper.
  • The paper has not been presented at, and is not under consideration for, journal-first programs of other conferences

How to Submit

Authors of manuscripts that respect these criteria are invited to submit a one-page presentation proposal consisting of the paper’s title, the paper’s authors, an extended abstract, the name of the presenter, and a pointer to the original journal paper at the journal’s Web site. Each journal first paper should be presented by a different author, but there is no limitation on the number of papers accepted per author. If the paper is not online yet, then specify so. The original paper should also be uploaded during submission. If the journal paper is related to or builds on a previously published work (such as a tool demo or a poster), then the proposal must clearly and explicitly justify why the paper should be considered a journal first paper.

Authors of manuscripts that respect these criteria are invited to submit a one-page presentation proposal (in ACM 2-column format) consisting of the paper’s title, the paper’s authors, an extended abstract, and a pointer to the original journal paper at the journal’s Web site. If the paper is not online yet, then specify so. The original paper should also be uploaded during submission.

The submission link is: https://ase2022-jf.hotcrp.com/

Evaluation and Selection

Authors will be invited to present their paper at ASE 2022 after a check that the paper is in scope for the conference and it adheres to the criteria above. As the papers have already been reviewed and accepted by the journals, they will not be reviewed again for technical content. In the case that an exceptionally high number of submissions is received, not all papers will be selected. Priority will be given to the papers that:

  • Increase opportunities for authors to attend ASE, who might not otherwise attend. In particular, priority will be given to papers whose specified presenter is not presenting other JF papers.
  • Best fit the technical program, offering a balance across the conference topics.
  • Would be ineligible as a journal-first presentation at the next SE3 conference (ICSE/FSE/ASE) – because its acceptance date precedes the next conference’s window of journal acceptance dates for JF presentations.

If there is further need to select from papers with the same priority, then they will be randomly selected. However, we will do our best to avoid this situation.
