ICGSE 2019
Fri 24 - Sun 26 May 2019 Montreal, QC, Canada
co-located with ICSE 2019

Experience Reports provide the opportunity for you to share your practical experience through a paper and accompanying talk at the conference. An experience report is a reflection of your own industry experiences (e.g. challenges you have seen, what you tried and approaches you have taken, what worked and what didn’t work). We invite you to submit an abstract in which you briefly explain your own, unpublished experience related to Global Software Engineering. If your proposal is accepted, you will then be shepherded as you write your report. Experience reports are short papers (maximum 5 pages) that will be published in the conference proceedings.

Questions to Consider

These questions might help you decide how to focus your experience report:
  • How did you uniquely adopt, adapt, use global software engineering?
  • How have you uniquely tackled architecture, development, design, usability, quality assurance, deployment, marketing, product definition, requirements or documentation in GSE settings?
  • What were the challenges you faced? How successful were you in overcoming them? What challenges remain?
  • What mistakes did you make? What insights have you gained that others could learn from?

Shepherding of Experience Reports

We know it’s not easy to get an idea to paper. Whether you’re a first-time author or you already have some publications under your belt, we can all benefit from some guidance and help with our writing. ‘Shepherding’ is a process where more experienced authors guide and coach you as you write your experience report paper. If your proposal is accepted, you will be assigned a shepherd to work with you to help you shape your paper and get it ready for publication. Shepherds work closely with authors, reviewing drafts and freely giving advice. Shepherds ask clarifying questions and suggest improvements. But ultimately, it is you, the author, who decides what to tell and how to tell it. A shepherd is not an editor, although they may generously make detailed comments on how to revise your paper. Once the shepherd and the program committee agree that your report is acceptable, you will have time to make final revisions before the paper is published.

Important Dates

  • January 15th, 2019 (AoE) - Abstract/proposal submission deadline
  • January 30th, 2019 (AoE) - Conditional acceptance notification. Shepherding process begins.
  • February 21st, 2019 (AoE) - Go/no-go decision based on whether paper is progressing. We will make a call whether to continue based on the quality of the paper at this date, and the shepherd’s judgment of the paper’s progress. Writing continues. Get paper ready for publication.
  • March 15th, 2019 (AoE) - Camera-ready submission deadline

Please see the Call for Contributions for all the details concerning topics of interest, formatting, and submission instructions.

Submission Process

Papers must be submitted electronically through EasyChair (see the link in the sidebar). All types of technical papers will be peer-reviewed according to the specified review criteria, hence it is required to choose the right type of paper according to the paper’s major contributions.

Submissions must be 5 page long, including all text, figures, tables, and appendices (two additional pages containing only references are permitted) and follow the IEEE Conference Proceedings Formatting Guidelines, with title in 24pt font and full text in 10pt type. LaTEX users must use \documentclass[10pt,conference]{IEEEtran} without including the compsoc or compsocconf option. Purchases of additional pages in the proceedings is not allowed.

Papers submitted for consideration should not have been published elsewhere and should not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere for the duration of consideration. ACM plagiarism policy and procedures shall be followed for cases of double submission. The submission must also comply with the IEEE Policy on Authorship.

Upon notification of acceptance, 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 the ICGSE 2019 conference. ICSE 2019 has the right to pull papers out of the proceedings if there is no asso-ciated registration by two weeks past the early registration deadline. All accepted contributions with at least one registered author will be published in the conference electronic proceedings and appear in the digital libraries of both IEEE and ACM.

The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM or IEEE Digital Libraries. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of ICSE 2019. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings relat-ed to published work.


Open Science Policy

ICGSE 2019 encourages authors to submit replication packages and/or data sets with their papers, for the sake of transparency as replicability, as well as for facilitating the peer review process. The following guidelines are recommendations and not mandatory. Your choice will not affect the review process for your paper. Should you decide to embrace this policy, we strongly encourage you to archive empirical datasets on Dataverse, following Google guidelines to dataset providers, and share analysis scripts on freely accessible code repositories such as GitHub, GitLab, and Bitbucket.

ICGSE 2019 also encourages authors to self-archive a preprint of your accepted manuscript in arXiv.org or other similar open repositories. This is allowed by ACM and IEEE publishers for ICSE proceedings. Note that the final version of the paper, as laid out by the publisher, cannot be self-archived. Instead, manuscript with reviewer comments addressed must be used, but before applying the camera-ready instructions and templates.

Feel free to contact the ICGSE 2019 PCs for more details.
