CSEE&T 2024
Mon 29 July - Thu 1 August 2024 Würzburg, Germany

Call for Research Papers

CSEE&T 2024 seeks original research papers on novel ideas, methods, and techniques for software engineering education, as well as education experience & industrial training reports. Contributions may concern all fields of software engineering education, including university education at the graduate and undergraduate level, industrial training, and teaching software engineering at various secondary schools. We welcome submissions on any aspects of software engineering education and training.

The theme of CSEE&T 2024 is “The Dawn of AI in Software Engineering Education”. Therefore, we particularly encourage submissions focused on using AI to improve software engineering education and training, its challenges, and related issues.

Submission Types

We seek original high-quality submissions adhering to the IEEE formatting guidelines (https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html), in these categories:

Full Research Papers (up to 10 pages)

Authors are invited to submit papers describing original research in relevant areas of software engineering education and training. Papers presenting actual research results, or in-depth analysis of experience with delivering courses and training units in different settings (schools, universities, industry, governmental entities, etc.), or describing theoretical or empirical research, new techniques and tools, novel interpretation and in-depth case studies, are all welcome. Research papers will be evaluated based on originality, technical quality and relevance to the field of software engineering education. They should clearly relate the work described to the relevant literature and provide an adequate evaluation.

Short Papers (up to 5 pages)

Short paper submissions that address software engineering education and training topics are also invited. They are intended particularly for reports of less substantial work, or of work that is still in progress (such as experience with a particular educational tool or support environment), or they may discuss a promising idea at an early stage, or an idea that may lack complete evaluation. Even so, it is important that short papers relate the work described to the relevant literature and attempt to evaluate it as far as possible. Conclusions should focus on aspects interesting for others working in related areas.

Journal First Submissions (1 page)

Journal first submissions present research on software engineering education and training, which has recently been published in high-quality journals. Submissions must clearly give reference to the original publication and state how the topic is related to software engineering education and training, and what the main contribution to be presented is. The original work must be included in the submission as supplement for reviewing purposes. Only the one-page summary will be published in the conference proceedings.

Two Submission Opportunities

As an innovation we offer a second deadline for the submission of short papers. All authors who were not accepted in the first call (but also new authors) can submit their contributions in the form of a short paper (up to 5 pages).

All papers must be submitted electronically through EasyChair (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cseet2024). Please observe the Important Dates. All accepted submissions will be indexed and published in the IEEE CSEE&T 2024 proceedings and are subject to registration and presentation at the conference. By submitting a paper, you agree the be added to our publicity mailing list, but are free to opt-out.

Format and Review Procedures

CSEE&T 2024 will continue to use the IEEE double column format for its proceedings (A4 format). All submissions must conform to this format, and must be within the page lengths specified for the class of submission. For research papers, CSEE&T 2024 will feature a double-blind review process. Each paper has to be prepared in accordance with established guidelines for double-blind reviews (i.e. omitting the authors names, referencing own work in the third person, etc.). Submissions that do not adhere to the formatting guidelines, are not blinded by the authors, or do exceed the page limits, will be desk rejected without further review.

Acceptance and Presentation

Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. All accepted submissions are subject to registration and presentation at the conference as a condition for publication. Each paper is evaluated by at least three members of the program committee. After discussion of the paper and the reviews by the program committee the final decision is made. With each accepted paper at least one (co-)author has to register as delegate before the camera ready deadline and present the paper at the conference. Otherwise papers will not be published in the conference proceedings. Oral presentations will take approximately full papers: 20 minutes with additional time of 10 minutes for discussions and short papers: 15 minutes with additional time of 5 minutes for discussions. Detailed information regarding presentation times for each individual paper category will be made upon program creation. Presentations should focus on triggering discussions for the benefit of both, the author(s) and potential adopters of the concept presented.

Additional Guidelines

All submissions must be original and must not have been published previously or currently be under consideration for publication elsewhere. It is expected that submitted papers comply with the ACM plagiarism policy and the IEEE policy on authorship. Prior to preparing papers for submission, potential authors should read the CSEE&T Researchers Guide, found at http://conferences.computer.org/cseet/CSEETResearchGuide.pdf.

Preference will be given to submissions that either describe experiences and/or provide sound scientific data, as compared with ones that simply present untested ideas or that deal with well-established approaches which have been thoroughly covered in previous conferences. At the same time, though, “vision” papers are welcome if they present sound argumentation, based on solid references, concerning provocative issues.
