ECSA 2024
Mon 2 - Fri 6 September 2024 Luxembourg, Luxembourg

Call for Papers

ECSA 2024 continues the partnership with the Journal of Systems and Software (JSS) and IEEE Software to incorporate journal-first papers into its program. We invite authors of journal-first papers accepted by JSS or IEEE Software since January 2023 to submit their work for presentation at ECSA 2024, which will allow authors of journal-first papers to present their work to the community.


A journal-first paper submitted to ECSA 2024 must adhere to the following criteria:

  • The paper must have been 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.

Paper Submissions

We invite authors of papers that meet the above criteria to submit a proposal that includes a summary of the original paper that highlights the contributions, motivates the relevance for the ECSA, and briefly discusses how the work has developed after the original publication if it is the case. Please include the DOI of the original journal paper. ECSA offers an opportunity to disseminate your work to a broader community audience.

The submission must be 3-4 pages long and conform to LNCS style. Accepted submissions will be invited to present at the conference. The track chairs will write a summary of the accepted submissions that will be included in the conference proceedings.

Proposals must be submitted via the online EasyChair submission site for the ECSA 2024 conference, selecting the "JournalFirst" Track:


Authors will be invited to present their paper at ECSA 2024 if the article is in the conference scope. As the papers have already been reviewed and accepted by the journal, we will not review the submission for technical content. We plan to include as many journal-first papers as possible in the ECSA's main program. If we receive an exceptionally high number, we may have to prioritize presentation proposals according to their fit to the conference theme and session structure.

Important Dates

  • Abstract submission: May 30, 2024
  • Paper submission: June 6, 2024
  • Acceptance notifications: June 27, 2024

ECSA 2024 is planned to be an in-person/physical conference. The journal-first paper presentation will happen as part of ECSA's main program.

As the journal's first presenter, you will benefit from the conference presentation, such as outreach to a broader audience and interactions and discussions with peers.

At least one author of each submission accepted for the journal-first program must register and attend the conference to present the paper.
