ICSA 2024
Tue 4 - Sat 8 June 2024 Hyderabad, Telangana, India

Call for Papers

ICSA 2024 has a partnership with Empirical Software Engineering (EMSE), IEEE Software, and the Journal of Systems and Software (JSS) to incorporate journal-first papers into its program. Authors of journal-first papers accepted by EMSE, IEEE Software, or JSS are invited to submit their work to be presented at ICSA 2024. This will allow authors of journal-first papers to present their work to the community.


We solicit submissions of accepted papers that meet the following criteria:
  • The paper was accepted to EMSE, IEEE Software, or JSS no earlier than December 1, 2022, and no later than February 1, 2024
  • The paper is related to the software architecture topics that are 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


Authors of manuscripts that meet the above criteria are invited to submit a proposal directly in the EasyChair submission system consisting of (1) paper title, (2) authors, (3) abstract, (4) a pointer to the original journal paper (DOI) or pre-print, and (5) an acknowledgement that the paper meets the above-mentioned criteria.


Authors will be invited to present their paper at ICSA 2024 after checking that the paper meets the above criteria. Because the papers have been reviewed and accepted by the journal, they will not be reviewed again for technical content. Our plan is to include as many papers as possible in the journal first program; 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 the fit to the conference theme and structure of sessions.

Important Dates

  • Proposal Submission: Feb 18th, 2024
  • Notification of Acceptance: March 17th, 2024
  • Camera-ready Submission: March 31th, 2024

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


As journal first presenter, you will have all the benefits of the conference presentation such as reaching a wider audience, interactions and discussion with peers, and feedback by peers on your work. The journal-first manuscripts are published through the journals and will not be part of the ICSA 2024 proceedings. The journal-first papers will be listed in the conference program and companion proceedings. ICSA 2024 participants will have access to the paper abstracts and a pointer to the journal publication outside the conference proceedings.

Note: At least one author of an accepted contribution is required to register and present the work at the conference. An in-person presentation is required.
