Call for papers

The EASE full research papers track seeks submissions describing unpublished, original work on any software engineering topic, provided there is a substantial empirical dimension to the presented work.

The full research papers must not exceed ten pages (including references) in the camera-ready version. Papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee.

Important Dates for the Full Papers Track:

  • Abstract submission: March 5, 2021
  • Papers submission: March 12, 2021 (Hard deadline)
  • Notification: April 19, 2021
  • Camera-ready April 30, 2021- extended to May 3, 2021

Submission Details

Submitted papers must be written in English, contain original, unpublished work, and conform to the ACM Proceedings Format (https://www.acm.org/publications/taps/word-template-workflow ). (Note: In the new ACM template https://www.acm.org/publications/taps/word-template-workflow, the submission template provided by the ACM is now one-column. The camera-ready version is still supposed to be two-column. The difference may make it difficult for authors to estimate their page numbers in the camera-ready version. For Word Template users, they shall refer to the Table at the bottom of the link https://www.acm.org/publications/taps/word-template-workflow to estimate the paper's pages in the camera-ready version. For Latex template users, the authors can use \documentclass[sigconf,authordraft]{acmart} to write the paper and to control the number of pages in the camera-ready version, and then change it to \documentclass[manuscript]{acmart} for submitting the paper for review.)

The conference enforces the ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism (https://www.acm.org/publications/policies/plagiarism-overview).

To reduce bias in reviews, EASE conference will use a double-blind review process. As a result, the manuscripts should be submitted for review anonymously (i.e., without listing the author’s names on the paper) and references to own work should be made in the third person.

We encourage both the authors and the reviewers of EASE to refer to the ACM Empirical Standard (https://github.com/acmsigsoft/EmpiricalStandards/blob/master/Empirical%20Standards.pdf)(A tool to support the use of the standard is available at https://web.cs.dal.ca/SIGSOFT-Empirical-Standards/) in preparing their submissions and reviews, to ensure thorough work as well as objective assessment.

Please submit manuscripts via EasyChair, and in pdf format via the following url: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ease2021. The conference proceedings will be published by ACM. The ACM offers options for Open Access (https://www.acm.org/openaccess).

Authors of a selected set of best papers will be invited to submit extended versions for publication in a Special Section at Elsevier’s Journal of Information and Software Technology https://www.journals.elsevier.com/information-and-software-technology.

At least one author of each accepted paper must register by the camera-ready deadline.
