EASE 2024
Tue 18 - Fri 21 June 2024 Salerno, Italy

Call for Papers

Industrial experience reports and industry perspectives provide the opportunity to share practical experiences and viewpoints through a short paper and a presentation at EASE 2024. An experience report is a reflection of the authors’ own industry experiences in which they may present challenges they have faced, approaches they have applied to address these challenges, as well as insights into what they would do differently now and what challenges remain. A perspective is an opinion piece on a relevant, current, and possibly controversial, topic based on the authors’ collective experiences on that topic. We invite you to submit a short paper in which you briefly explain your own, unpublished experience or perspective related to evaluation and assessment in software engineering. We encourage submissions describing joint experiences and perspectives developed in collaboration with academia or research organizations. Submissions can be as short as 2 pages, but should not exceed 4 pages. We solicit industrial experience reports and perspective papers on topics including but not limited to the following:

  • Assessing the benefits/costs associated with using chosen development technologies
  • Cross- and multi-disciplinary methods and studies
  • Case studies, action-research, design-science, and field studies, including multilevel research designs
  • Development and evaluation of empirical prediction systems or software estimation models
  • Empirically-based decision making
  • Evaluation and comparison of techniques and models in real-world contexts
  • Experimentation in an industrial context, including A/B testing and quasi-experiments
  • Modeling, measuring, and assessing product and/or process quality
  • Replication of empirical studies and families of studies
  • Software engineering analytics
  • Simulation-based studies in software engineering
  • Software project management and knowledge management
  • Software technology transfer to the industry
  • Raising the profile of assessment, experimentation, and evidence-based approaches for software systems in an industrial context

Review Criteria

All submissions will be reviewed by at least three program committee members of the EASE Industry track. Submissions will be evaluated according to several criteria, in addition to the clarity of presenting the paper, as listed below:

  • Originality: Submitted papers shall demonstrate how they advance the current state of the practice in their respective industrial contexts.
  • Relevance to industrial application context: Submitted papers to this track must have relevance to the industry, which must be clearly described in the paper.
  • Significance of contributions: The paper should explain how significant the work is in particular compared to the existing related works and similar industrial contexts.
  • Generalizability and scalability: The evaluation will consider generalizability and scalability concerns and discuss how the results are applicable beyond the specific industrial context of the paper.

All papers will be peer-reviewed and should be at most 4 pages long, including all text, figures, tables, and references. Submitted papers must be written in English, contain original unpublished work, and conform to the ACM Proceedings Format (https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template ). You can find a template for the industrial experience reports here. Papers submitted for consideration must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere for the duration of consideration. The conference enforces the ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism (https://www.acm.org/publications/policies/plagiarism-overview) After the notification deadline, authors of accepted papers will be asked to complete a copyright form and will receive further instructions for preparing their camera-ready versions. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to register and present the results at EASE 2024. All accepted contributions will be published in the conference electronic proceedings and appear in the digital library of ACM.
