The Conference on Software Maintenance and Reengineering (CSMR) is 
the premier European conference on the theory and practice
of maintenance, reengineering and evolution of software systems.
CSMR promotes discussion and interaction among researchers and 
practitioners about the development of maintainable software-intensive 
systems, and the evolution, migration and reengineering of these systems. 

CSMR 2011 will feature up to 10 technical research paper sessions, full-day 
and half-day workshops, half day tutorials, an industry paper track, 
a tool demonstration track, a doctoral symposium and a special track on 
European research projects within the field of software evolution.

What is new this year is the addition of an industrial forum,
enabling  companies to present their technologies 
(tools, methodologies, services) as well as success stories in software 
maintenance and reengineering. The goal of this forum is to promote 
the work of the reengineering industry and to demonstrate its practical 
relevance to this field. The following tutorials will take place as part
of this forum:
E. Juergens, F. Deissenboeck, B. Hummel: "Code Clone Detection in Practice"
J. Knodel: "Rapid ArchiTecture Evaluation (RATE)"
R. Koschke: "Stopping Software Erosion with Static Analysis"
H. Sneed: "The Automatic Transformation of COBOL and PLI programs in Java"

The CSMR 2011 proceedings will be published in IEEE Digital Library. 
Details on the submission process can be found on the conference 
web site (http://se.uni-oldenburg.de/CSMR2011).

We intend to invite extended versions of the best selected CSMR 2011
papers for inclusion in a special issue of a renowned scientific journal.

* Technical Research Papers (10 pages):
	Research papers should describe original and significant work
	in the research and practice of software maintenance,
	evolution, reengineering and renovation. Theoretical results,
	case studies, tool development, empirical research and 
	experiments are particularly welcome.

* Workshop Proposals (2 pages):
	Proposals for half-day or full-day workshops related to the
	themes of the main conference are solicited. Proposals should
	include the names and affiliations of the organizers, a 
	description of the topic, the intended audience, and the 
	proposed format of the session.

* Industrial Papers (4 pages):
	The industry track papers should discuss industrial practice,
	collaboration between industry and academia, and
	experience reports describing problems (and their solutions)
	encountered in real applications.

* Doctoral Symposium Papers (4 pages):
	The doctoral symposium offers PhD students the opportunity
	to discuss their work with renowned researcher and practitioners.
	We solicit submissions from ongoing PhDs having settled the
	dissertation topic and defined the research agenda. The
	submission should clearly state the research question addressed,
	the solution idea, the validation, and action plan to accomplish
	the PhD thesis goals.

* European Project Papers (4 pages):
	The European track invites partners of ongoing or recently
	completed projects (both national and international)
	involving European partners to present their research
	related to maintenance, evolution or reengineering.

Submitted articles should not have been published previously, or have been submitted for publication elsewhere. All submissions will be reviewed by at least three program committee members and should adhere to the IEEE 8.5" x 11" two-column format (http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting)
Submissions should be uploaded electronically in PDF format via the CSMR
submission sites:

* Technical papers:
* Workshop proposals:
* All other track papers:

For all types of solicited submissions, the topic should be of
direct interest to the software maintenance, reengineering and evolution
community. A non-limitative list of such topics is given below:

* Tools, formalisms and methods supporting the evolution of 
software systems, software architectures and software models
* Methods and techniques to assess, enable, improve and certify
maintainability and evolvability of software intensive systems
* Techniques and approaches for software analysis, comprehension, and reconstruction
* Process models for software maintenance, reengineering, and evolution
* Experience reports on maintenance and reengineering of large-scale systems
* Empirical studies in software reengineering, maintenance, evolution and renovation
* Evaluation, assessment and benchmarks of reverse engineering and reengineering tools
* Education-related issues to evolution, maintenance and reengineering
* Language support for software maintenance and evolution
* Migration and evolution in emerging paradigms (SOA, cloud, AOP, multi-core computing and the like)
