The following information is tentative and will be finalized at a later date. The current content is based on the previous version and is made available so that those thinking of submitting can start planning their submission
The Software Engineering in Practice (SEIP) track of ICSE is the premier venue for practitioners and researchers to discuss insights, innovations, and solutions to concrete software engineering problems. Practical software development relies on excellent software engineering research.
SEIP provides a unique forum for networking, exchanging ideas, fostering innovations, and forging long-term collaborations to address Software Engineering research that impacts directly on practice. It is one of the most prestigious forums in which to publish work in the Software Engineering literature. SEIP will include participants and speakers from both industrial and academic sectors, drawing together researchers and practitioners eager to communicate and share common interests in software engineering. The track will be composed of invited talks, paper presentations, and interactive sessions, all with a strong focus on software practice.
Please note that the ICSE SEIP track DOES NOT require double-anonymous review. Unlike some other ICSE tracks, it is often important for SEIP paper authors and the organizations involved to be visible to the reviewers in order for the reviewers to fully understand the industrial relevance and context.
Link to submission: TO BE OPENED LATER
We seek the following two types of submissions, both of which must be written exclusively in English and for which paper limits include references.
Full papers address industrially-relevant problems through systematic investigations. Each paper should describe a problem of practical importance, explain how the problem was investigated and in what context, and present evidence for the paper’s conclusions. The submission should have technical and empirical soundness. Other aspects that should also be included where appropriate include: discussing why the resolution of the problem is innovative, (cost-) effective, or efficient; providing a concise explanation of the approach, techniques, and methodologies employed; and explaining the insights or best practices that emerged, tools developed, and/or software processes involved.
Full papers will appear in the ICSE SEIP Companion proceedings.
Industrial challenge papers outline a new research challenge, arising from industrial software practice and experience. A challenge paper will clearly articulate the problem and motivate it in terms of its potential for industrial impact and/or its practical importance. The aim of the call for challenge papers is to provide a growing pool of well-defined industrially relevant problems for the research community to tackle. Submission Process
IEEE formatting will be used. The details will be updated later
All submissions must not exceed 10 pages (for full papers) or 2 pages (for industrial challenge papers) for the main text, inclusive of all figures, tables, appendices, etc. Two more pages (for full papers) or one more page (for industrial challenge papers) containing only references are permitted. All submissions must be in PDF. Accepted papers will be allowed one extra page for the main text of the camera-ready version.
Submissions must strictly conform to the ACM conference proceedings formatting instructions specified above. Alterations of spacing, font size, and other changes that deviate from the instructions may result in desk rejection without further review.
By submitting to the ICSE SEIP Track, authors acknowledge that they are aware of and agree to be bound by the ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism and the IEEE Plagiarism FAQ. Papers submitted to ICSE 2025 must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere whilst under consideration for ICSE 2025. 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 your article to an ACM Publication, you are hereby acknowledging that you and your co-authors are subject to all ACM Publications Policies, including ACM’s new Publications Policy on Research Involving Human Participants and Subjects. Alleged violations of this policy or any ACM Publications Policy will be investigated by ACM and may result in a full retraction of your paper, in addition to other potential penalties, as per ACM Publications Policy.
Please ensure that you and your co-authors obtain an ORCID ID, so you can complete the publishing process for your accepted paper. ACM has been involved in ORCID from the start and we have recently made a commitment to collect ORCID IDs from all of our published authors. The collection process has started and will roll out as a requirement throughout 2022. We are committed to improve author discoverability, ensure proper attribution and contribute to ongoing community efforts around name normalization; your ORCID ID will help in these efforts.
All SEIP submissions will be reviewed by members of the SEIP Program Committee. Submissions will be evaluated based on relevance to industrial practice, the significance of contribution, and the quality of presentation.
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 and the IEEE Plagiarism FAQ. In particular, papers submitted to ICSE 2025 SEIP must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere whilst under consideration for ICSE SEIP 2025. 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.

- Tentative submission deadline: October 10th, 2024
If a submission is accepted, at least one author of the paper is required to register for and attend the conference to present the paper. The presentation is expected to be delivered in person, unless this is impossible due to travel restrictions (related to, e.g., health, visa, or COVID-19 constraints).
If there are queries regarding the CFP, please contact the ICSE SEIP 2024 chairs. Details to be added
