Call for Papers

ECSA 2021 opened up a partnership with Journal of Systems and Software (JSS) and IEEE Software to incorporate journal-first papers into its program. Authors of journal-first papers accepted by JSS or IEEE Software since January 2020 are invited to submit their work to be presented at ECSA 2021. This will allow authors of journal-first papers to present their work to the community.

Scope

A journal-first paper submitted to ECSA 2021 must adhere to the following criteria:

  • The paper must have been already accepted after peer review by JSS or IEEE Software.
  • The paper is in the scope of the conference.
  • The paper has not been presented at, and is not under consideration for, journal-first programs of other conferences.

Submissions

Authors of manuscripts that respect the above criteria are invited to submit a summary of the original paper that highlights the contributions of for the community together with a pointer to the original journal paper. The submission must conform to CEUR-ART style, single-column (available at http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-XXX/CEURART.zip). Note that if you want the summary to be included in the ECSA 2021 proceedings companion volume, it must be 5 pages long. Proposals must be submitted must be made electronically via the online EasyChair submission site for the ECSA 2021 conference, selecting the “JournalFirst” Track: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ecsa2021

Evaluation

Authors will be invited to present their paper at ECSA 2021 after a check that the paper is in scope of the conference. As the papers have been already reviewed and accepted by the journal, they will not be reviewed again for technical content. Our plan is to include in the journal first program as many papers as possible; only in case an exceptionally high number of proposals is received, not all submissions might be selected. If needed, presentation proposals will be prioritized according to fit to the conference theme and structure of sessions.

Important Dates

  • Abstract Submission: May 13th, 2021
  • Submission deadline: May 17th, 2021
  • Notification: June 14th, 2021
  • Camera ready of summary: June 29th, 2021

Notes: All deadlines are 23:59h AoE (anywhere on Earth)

Presentation

Please note that ECSA 2021 will be hosted as a virtual event. As journal first presenter, you will have all the benefits of the conference presentation, such as reachout to wider audience, interactions and discussion with peers, and feedback by peers on your work. At least one author of each presentation accepted for the journal-first program must register and attend the conference to present the paper. The summary of the journal-first manuscript will (optionally, must be 5 pages) be published in the proceedings as part of the ECSA 2021 companion volume.
