7th International Conference on 
Predictive Models in Software Engineering
Sept 20-21, 2011
Banff, Canada
Co-located with ESEM'11

Twitter: @promise_conf

The PROMISE conference seeks verifiable and repeatable
models that are useful for the implementation, 
evaluation, and management of software processes and 
projects. Such models relate to software development 
efforts (both in general or software development for 
specific domains such as telecom, finance, scientific 
applications, etc).

Our topics of interest include but are not limited to:
* Effort prediction models
* Defect prediction models
* Meta-analysis and generalizations of predictive 
 models exploring certain questions
* Replicated studies
* Predicting various intermediate or final outcomes of
 interest regarding business, team, human, people, 
 process, and organizational aspects of software 
* Privacy and ethical issues in sharing and modeling
* Qualitative research guiding and informing the 
 process of building future predictive models
* Instance-based models predicting outcomes by 
 examining similarities to earlier experiences
* Industrial experience reports detailing the 
 application of software technologies - processes, 
 methods, or tools - and their effectiveness in 
 industrial settings.
* Tools for software researchers that effectively 
 gather and analyze data to support reproducible and 
 verifiable research.

Papers must not exceed 10 pages (including 
references). Submissions must be original work, not 
published or under review elsewhere. Accepted papers 
will be published in the ACM digital library.

Submission: April 21
Notification: June 21
Camera-Ready: July 21

PROMISE 2011 will give the highest priority to 
empirical studies based on publicly available 
datasets. It is therefore encouraged, but it is not 
mandatory, that conference attendees contribute the 
data used in their analysis to the on-line PROMISE 
data repository. The repository currently holds 135 
data sets, which can be used to 
repeat/confirm/refute/improve previous results.

Authors of selected papers from PROMISE'11 will be 
invited to submit extended versions to a special 
issue of Information and Software Technology 

To submit, follow the instructions at 
http://promisedata.org/2011/submit.php. In summary:

1) Papers must come with structured abstracts:

2) Papers must be formatted using ACM Sig proceedings
