18th IEEE International Conference on Program Comprehension (ICPC)

          Braga, Portugal
          June 30 -- July 2 2010


The  International  Conference  on  Program  Comprehension  (ICPC)  is  the
principal venue for works in the area of program comprehension as well as a
leading  venue  for  works  in  the areas  of  software  analysis,  reverse
engineering  software  evolution,  and  software visualization.  ICPC  2010
promises to provide a quality  forum for researchers and practitioners from
academia,   industry,   and   government   to  present   and   to   discuss
state-of-the-art  and  best-practice  results   in  the  field  of  program
comprehension.  ICPC  2010 will be held  in Braga, Portugal.  Braga is also
known  as  the  "Portuguese   Rome"  for  its  concentration  of  religious
architecture, Roman  remains, beautiful churches and museums.  Braga is one
of Portugal's principle tourist attractions.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Cognitive theories  for program comprehension,  including experiments and
  case studies

* Comprehension of  specific types of  software systems, such  as web-based
systems,   multi-language    systems,   legacy   systems,   object-oriented
frameworks,  component-based  software,  product  line systems,  and  other
large-scale systems

* Comprehension in  the context of  specific lifecycle activities,  such as
maintenance,  reengineering,   migration,  security,  auditing,  inspection
before purchase, and testing

* Visualization in support of program comprehension

A  special issue of  the Empirical  Software Engineering,  An International
Journal  (http://www.springer.com/computer/programming/journal/10664)  will
feature  extended, revised  versions of  the best  papers accepted  at ICPC

We  are soliciting  participation  through the  submission  of research  or
experience papers,  the organization of working  sessions, the presentation
of posters, or tool demonstrations.


Papers must  be original work and are  limited to 10 pages  for full papers
and 4 pages for short papers, in the IEEE CS proceedings style. Submissions
must not be  previously published in, currently submitted  to, or currently
in consideration  for any  journal, book, conference,  or workshop.  For an
accepted  paper to  appear in  the proceedings,  at least  one  author must
attend the  event and present  the work. A  number of full  technical paper
submissions may be accepted as short papers.


The ICPC  working sessions are  forums for small  groups of people  who are
engaged in research in the same subfield. The working sessions are meant to
foster the exchange  of ideas and to advance the  state of research through
focused interactions of the participants.  The descriptions of the accepted
working sessions  will be included in  the conference proceedings  (up to 4
pages in  the IEEE CS proceedings  style). The proposals  should indicate a
set  of issues  to be  discussed in  the session  and should  indicate some
likely participants.


Posters  describing  preliminary research  ideas  will  be  exhibited in  a
separate session to foster informal  an exchange between the exhibitors and
the participants.   Poster submissions are not required  to cover completed
major research results.  A session  for tool demonstrations will cover both
industry-strength tools and academic prototypes.  Accepted posters and tool
demonstrations  will be  included in  the conference  proceedings (up  to 2
pages in the  IEEE CS proceedings style). The  poster/tool proposals should
indicate the novelty of the approach and how the ideas will be presented.


The main goal of the industrial  comprehension challenge  track is to
create a dialog between academic researchers and industrial
practitioners.  Therefore, we invite proposals for presentations from
industry which discuss the real program comprehension problems that
they are experiencing in their day-to-day work and pose a challenge to
the ICPC audience to help them in solving that problem over the coming
year. We aim for a followup session in the next conference to present
results and discuss challenges in their industrial adoption.
