ICSE 2020
Wed 24 June - Thu 16 July 2020

Goals

We are looking for insightful and thought-provoking papers that address the various roles of software engineering in society. Specifically, we are seeking contributions that highlight how software engineering can address the opportunities and challenges posed by the rapidly accelerating pace of technological advances that are impacting the economic, political, environmental, social and technical aspects of society.

We would also like to discuss emerging trends in the development of software that is part of larger systems and whose development is tackled within the specific disciplines listed below. This development should be able to proceed with only the limited, if any, involvement of software engineering experts. The goal is to investigate the reasons for these trends, to analyze possible novel contributions from the Software Engineering community, and to identify novel research challenges that these disciplines pose to software engineering methods and practices.

    • Interdisciplinary research (e.g. Cognitive Science, Digital Social Innovation).
  • Work emerging from research partnerships with communities, NGOs, cultural institutions, and the public and private sector.
  • Research reflections on the long term implications of digital technology interventions on all aspects in society (e.g. economics, social, political, environmental, technical).

Call for contributions

Goals

We are looking for insightful and thought-provoking papers that address the various roles of software engineering in society. Specifically, we are seeking contributions that highlight how software engineering can address the opportunities and challenges posed by the rapidly accelerating pace of technological advances that are impacting the economic, political, environmental, social and technical aspects of society.

We would also like to discuss emerging trends in the development of software that is part of larger systems and whose development is tackled within the specific disciplines listed below. This development should be able to proceed with only the limited, if any, involvement of software engineering experts. The goal is to investigate the reasons for these trends, to analyze possible novel contributions from the Software Engineering community, and to identify novel research challenges that these disciplines pose to software engineering methods and practices.

SEIS Welcomes

  • Innovative, inspiring research with a clear impact on software engineering challenges, directions, methods, and tools,
  • Engagement with a broad spectrum of disciplines including, but not limited to:
    • Health (e.g., Health Informatics, software technologies for ageing);
    • Physical Sciences (e.g., Computational Chemistry, Genomic, Biotechnologies)
    • Environmental Sciences (e.g., Sustainability, Urban Planning, Ecology, Climate Change);
    • Social Sciences (e.g., Ethics, Software Fairness, Regulatory Compliance);
    • Management (e.g. socio-technical ecosystems, technical debt, social debt);

    • The Arts (e.g. Digital Art, Performing Arts) and Crafts (e.g. DIY electronics);
    • Interdisciplinary research (e.g. Cognitive Science, Digital Social Innovation);
  • Work emerging from research partnerships with communities, NGOs, cultural institutions, and the public and private sector,
  • Research reflections on the long-term implications of digital technology interventions on all aspects in society (e.g., economics, social, political, environmental, technical),
  • Research directions towards new development models, tools, and methods for specific application environments,
  • Research findings supported by empirical studies and experimentation

Scope

We are interested in technical research approaches that have been applied to address or to support solutions to societal problems. Equally, we are interested in sharing case studies, success stories, failures and lessons learned from working in highly complex problem spaces such as climate change, public health, cyber security and democracy. We are interested in software engineering tools, processes, architectures, and methods that are relevant in these settings. SEIS authors are encouraged to contribute soundly motivated research, both mature and novel. SEIS welcomes multi- and inter-disciplinary research showcasing how software engineering can contribute to the many dimensions of software embedded in and influencing society.

Evaluation

The primary criteria for acceptance of a paper submitted to SEIS are the scientific quality of the paper and the extent to which a paper meets the SEIS track goals and fits the scope. The SEIS program committee will undertake the assessment with regard to the following criteria: relevance to the Software Engineering community, soundness of the technical contribution, originality of the paper, appropriate consideration of relevant literature, and clarity of presentation. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. A submission must not have been previously published or concurrently submitted elsewhere.

Format

  • Full paper, up to 10 pages, including references, documenting results and findings, where the research presented has followed established research methods;
  • Short paper, up to 4 pages, including references, reporting novel approaches that have not been fully evaluated, which will be presented as a poster;
  • Case study paper, up to 10 pages, including references, reporting on real-world problems and innovative solutions, or tools.

How to Submit

Formatting instructions are available at https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template for both LaTeX and Word users. LaTeX users must use the provided acmart.cls and ACM-Reference-Format.bst without modification, enable the conference format in the preamble of the document (i.e., \documentclass[sigconf,review]{acmart}), and use the ACM reference format for the bibliography (i.e., \bibliographystyle{ACM-Reference-Format}). The review option adds line numbers, thereby allowing referees to refer to specific lines in their comments.

Note, We do not use double-blind review (i.e., authors do not have to hide their identities in their papers).

Please use the link to submit your paper: https://icse2020-seis.hotcrp.com/

Conference Attendance Expectation

If a submission is accepted, at least one author of the paper is required to register for and attend the full 3-day technical conference and present the paper in person.

Important Dates

  • Submission deadline: 29 Oct 2019
  • Notification to authors: 15 Jan 2020
  • Camera-ready deadline: 7 Feb 2020
