co-located with ICSE 2022

Call for Papers

The MSR 2022 Industry Track is the venue to present and learn about the opportunities, challenges, and cutting-edge technology related to using data from software repositories in practice. For a long time, academic researchers in software engineering have been looking to learn and collaborate with practitioners. Our goal for the new Industry Track is to be the space for a productive dialogue between software engineering researchers and practitioners, particularly those building tools for other software professionals.

In this first edition of the Industry Track, we are looking to minimize the known barriers to industry participation in software engineering research conferences. We invite practitioners to submit an abstract, maximum 1 page long, outlining a talk or a poster presentation.

We are soliciting abstracts in two categories:

  • Problems: the talk outlines a single problem in an industrial context that could be addressed by using data from software repositories.
  • Solutions: the talk reports on a data-driven tool or technique in practice, based on data from software repositories, that the authors have built or are working on.

Submission Format

A one-page PDF file containing the title, speaker names, their industrial affiliations, and the outline of the talk or poster. At the submission stage, we are not requiring any particular template. The authors of accepted submissions may choose to have their abstract published in the conference proceedings. In that case, we will provide a template.

Evaluation Criteria

We will evaluate submissions from practitioners based on relevance and clarity of the description of the problem, solution, or lessons learned along with the context. The submissions should be relevant to the application of data science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to software engineering tools and processes in practice.

The submission deadline is Wednesday, February 16, 2022.

The authors of all submissions will be notified of acceptance by March 8th, 2022.
