Call for Research Projects

ESEM2024 introduces a Research Project track where researchers and practitioners can present their ongoing research projects (e.g., H2020, Horizon Europe, ERC projects, or national grants) in the context of Empirical Software Engineering. The main objective of this call is to serve as a forum where presenters can disseminate the intermediate results of their projects or get feedback about research project proposals being developed. Moreover, this track will also provide a good environment to find other potential research partners, foster existing relationships, and discuss new research ideas.

General Scope of Submissions

Submissions should not be under consideration for publication or presentation elsewhere. Submissions may address the following topics:

  • Projects funded by the European Union, by national or local funding organizations, or even by individual universities and industries.
  • Projects focused on fundamental research, applied research, or more industry-oriented.
  • Research projects carried out by an international consortium of partners or by a national research team.
  • Research statements for future projects concerning the Information Systems Engineering community.

How to Submit

Authors should submit a paper (2-4 pages) showcasing the project, including the participants, the main objectives of the project, and relevant results obtained so far (or expected results in the case of project proposals). Each submission will be reviewed by at least two members of the Program Committee. In case of disagreement, a third member of the Program Committee will review the submission. The Program Committee will comprise international researchers with expertise in the field. The accepted contributions will be included in the ESEM2024 proceedings.

The paper should be submitted via Easychair ( by selecting “Research Projects”. Each research project submission should include:

  • Project’s full name, acronym, duration (from-to), participants, funding agency, and URL.
  • Names of presenter(s) and main contributors.
  • Abstract and keywords.
  • Summary of project objectives and expected tangible outputs.
  • The relevance of the project (or one of its work packages) to the ESEM community
  • If the project is ongoing, summarize the current status and intermediate results.

All submissions must be written in English and must be submitted via EasyChair in PDF format, and they must be formatted according to the ACM proceedings template, which can be found at ACM Proceedings Template ( or in Overleaf at
