ICSE 2021
Sat 22 - Sun 30 May 2021 Location to be announced

The workshops at the International Conference on Software Engineering 2020 (ICSE) provide a forum for groups of 20-50 participants to discuss topics in software engineering research and practice. ICSE Workshops can be quite diverse. They serve as incubators for scientific communities that form and share a particular research agenda. They also provide opportunities for researchers to exchange and discuss scientific and engineering ideas at an early stage, before they have matured to warrant conference or journal publication.

Workshops at ICSE 2021 are one or two days long and may be held May 23, 24, or 28, 29, 2021. Participation in ICSE workshops is open. The workshop papers will be published in ACM Digital Library and IEEE eXplore Digital Library.

Call for Workshop Proposals

The workshops at the International Conference on Software Engineering 2021 (ICSE) provide a forum for groups of 20-50 participants to discuss topics in software engineering research and practice. ICSE Workshops can be quite diverse. They serve as incubators for scientific communities that form and share a particular research agenda. They also provide opportunities for researchers to exchange and discuss scientific and engineering ideas at an early stage, before they have matured to warrant conference or journal publication.

Workshops at ICSE 2021 are one or two days long and may be held May 23, 24, or 28, 29 2021. In general, participation in ICSE workshops is open. The workshop papers will be prepared by IEEE.

Submissions

All proposals must not exceed 5 pages, including a maximum of 4 pages for the proposal text, references, appendices and figures, plus 1 page for the draft Call for Submissions. All proposals must be submitted electronically by October 5, 2020 (cf. Important Dates).

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). The main body of each proposal must include the following information, in the order specified:

A. Proposal (max 4 pages)

  • Workshop Title
  • Abstract (less than 200 words), suited for the ICSE 2021 website
  • Contact Information for all workshop organizers, including the main contact person
  • Motivation and Objectives
    • Relevance of the workshop to the field of software engineering.
    • Anticipated goals and outcomes (e.g., open research problems to pursue, validation objectives, empirical studies).
  • Format and Required Services
    • Workshop format (e.g., paper presentations, keynotes, breakout sessions, panel-like discussions) and plans for generating discussions.
    • Intended length (1 or 2 days).
    • Special services, logistic and/or equipment constraints.
  • Target Audience
    • Expected background of the workshop attendees.
    • Plans regarding the mix of industry and research participation.
    • Expected minimum and maximum number of workshop participants.
    • Plans for soliciting and selecting workshop participants, including whether the workshop will be open or closed (in case of a closed workshop, provide a justification).
  • Proceedings
    • Types of contributions (e.g., extended abstracts, position papers, research papers, etc.) and their estimated number and page limits
    • Review and evaluation process to decide about the acceptance of submissions.
    • Program committee, including tentative and already committed members.
    • Online submission system to be used by the workshop (e.g., Easychair or HotCRP).
    • Link to preliminary web site of the workshop.
    • A proceeding chair, who will be responsible to send the list accepted papers (paper titles, authors, emails) to IEEE (new this year)
  • Workshop History
    • Number of registered attendees and websites of previous editions of the workshop (if any)
  • Organizers’ bios
    • A brief description of each organizer’s background, including relevant past experience in organizing conferences and workshops.

For Accepted Workshops

For all accepted workshops, ICSE 2021 requires uniform deadlines for workshop papers submission, notification of authors, and camera-ready copies, as described in the Important Dates below.

Papers must have a maximum length of 8 pages. It is not possible to pay for extra pages.

For workshops that will opt for publication in IEEE prior to the event, the call for submissions must include the following statement: “The official publication date of the workshop proceedings is the date the proceedings are made available by IEEE. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of ICSE 2021. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.”

Conditions

ICSE 2021 will not pay for registration, travel, or other arrangements for workshop organizers. ICSE 2021 will also not pay for workshop dinners. Additionally, ICSE 2021 cannot guarantee to honour specific requests for holding the workshop on specific dates. All participants, including workshop organizers, keynote speakers, and invited guests, must register for the workshop. One keynote speaker per workshop can benefit of a free workshop registration (note that the free registration only includes the workshop, and none of the other events are included, for instance the main conference is not included in the free workshop registration). Workshop organizers cannot submit (refereed) papers to their own workshop. This restriction extends to workshop organizer’s directly supervised students.

Important Dates

  • Workshop Proposal Submissions Deadline: 5 October 2020
  • Workshop Proposal Acceptance Notification: 16 November 2020
  • Workshop Websites Online: 23 November 2020
  • Workshop Papers Submission Deadline: 12 January 2021
  • Workshop Papers Acceptance Notification: 22 February 2021
  • Workshop Papers Camera Ready: 12 March 2021
