ICSE 2021
Sat 22 - Sun 30 May 2021

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.

Call for Papers

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

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.

By submitting to this track, authors acknowledge that they are aware of and agree to be bound by the ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism (https://www.acm.org/publications/policies/plagiarism) and the IEEE Plagiarism FAQ (https://www.ieee.org/publications/rights/plagiarism/plagiarism-faq.html). In particular, papers submitted to ICSE 2021 must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere whilst under consideration for ICSE 2021. Contravention of this concurrent submission policy will be deemed a serious breach of scientific ethics, and appropriate action will be taken in all such cases. To check for double submission and plagiarism issues, the chairs reserve the right to (1) share the list of submissions with the PC Chairs of other conferences with overlapping review periods and (2) use external plagiarism detection software, under contract to the ACM or IEEE, to detect violations of these policies.

By submitting to this track, authors acknowledge that they conform to the authorship policy of the ACM (https://www.acm.org/publications/policy-on-authorship), and the authorship policy of the IEEE (https://journals.ieeeauthorcenter.ieee.org/become-an-ieee-journal-author/publishing-ethics/definition-of-authorship/).

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

All submissions must conform to the IEEE formatting instructions IEEE Conference Proceedings Formatting Guidelines (title in 24pt font and full text in 10pt type. LaTeX users must use \documentclass[10pt,conference]{IEEEtran} without including the compsoc or compsocconf options).

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://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=seis2021#

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. The presentation is expected to be delivered in person, unless this is impossible due to travel limitations (related to, e.g., health, visa, or COVID-19 prevention).

Important Dates

If a correction is needed (e.g., because the author name was misspelled), the track/event chairs need to approve the change. The authors should also notify the track/event chairs if the author list in EasyChair data about the paper is not identical to the author list in initial-submission pdf (not relevant for tracks with double-blind process).

  • In the next days, you will be contacted by the publisher (IEEE CPS) with the instructions and link where to submit the camera-ready version of your paper (please do not submit it to EasyChair and wait for the instructions). As part of the process, you will also need to submit your IEEE copyright (before you complete your final paper submission). So please read the instructions carefully immediately after it arrives.

  • At least one of the paper’s authors must register to the conference by the camera-ready deadline, specifying the unique Paper ID, assigned to each paper by IEEE CPS publishing vendor and sent to you when inviting you to submit the camera ready version of your paper.

ABOUT OPEN POLICIES

As you know, ICSE 2021 has embraced open science practices towards higher transparency of the scientific process and availability of research artifacts. With ICSE 2021 going virtual, more than ever we need to ensure access to such a widely distributed audience.

In case you have not done so at submission time already, we ask you to inspect the open science policies (https://conf.researchr.org/track/icse-2021/icse-2021-open-science-policies) while preparing the camera ready. In particular, make sure to:

  1. Provide a supporting statement on the data/software/analysis scripts/…/artifact availability (or lack thereof, which should be accompanied by reasons for non-disclosure) in a section named Data Availability after the Conclusion section.

  2. Self-archive your camera ready (NOT the typeset proof by IEEE).

The policies (https://conf.researchr.org/track/icse-2021/icse-2021-open-science-policies) contain instructions and tutorials for all the above. In case of questions, do not hesitate to contact the open science chair Daniel Graziotin (daniel.graziotin@iste.uni-stuttgart.de).

ABOUT PRESENTATION AND TIMING

  • ICSE main conference will be held from Tuesday May 25 to Friday May 28, 2021.

  • You presentation will be 10 minutes long. The presentation will be recorded, not live (you are required to provide a 10 minutes video presentation).

  • Q&A will last for 10 minutes. Q&A will be live.

  • After every session there will be breakout rooms for every paper to continue discussion with interested attendees.

  • Program will have a uniform daily schedule of 12 hours (10:00-22:00 CEST) and will be mirrored in the other 12 hours. Authors are encouraged to be present in the Q&A of the live/main conference(10:00-22:00 CEST). They can be or not present in the mirrored conference (22:00-10:00 CEST) although we encourage to do so if the time is not too inconvenient for their time zone. It may be that for some regions (Japan, Australia, Hawaii) we allow authors to be present in the mirror rather than in the main conference if the time of their session is too uncomfortable. This will be further clarified to authors.

REQUIRED INFORMATION TO UPLOAD

  • You are required to provide a compulsory 10 minutes video, shown as part of the conference program. Optionally, you can provide another video of 20 minutes maximum for those people who prefer watching a video over reading a paper.

  • Based on the Open Science Initiative of ICSE 2021, you are required to self-archive your camera ready. So, you will be required to provide us the link that will appear in ICSE 2021 website.

Further instructions and details on all these matters will be specified as the process advances.
