7th International Symposium on Empirical Software Engineering and 
Measurement (ESEM)

October 10-11, 2013 – Baltimore, Maryland - USA


The ACM / IEEE International Symposium on Empirical Software Engineering 
and Measurement (ESEM) is the premier conference for research

results related to empirical software engineering. These include 
discussions of: i) strengths and weaknesses of software engineering

technologies and methods from an empirical viewpoint; ii) the design and 
analysis of empirical studies, ranging from controlled

experiments to case studies and from quantitative to qualitative 
studies; and iii) the use of data and measurement to understand,

evaluate, and model software engineering phenomena. The symposium 
encourages the presentation of both novel work and replication

studies. Papers are rigorously reviewed by leading international experts 
and the full paper acceptance rate is competitive.

ESEM provides a stimulating forum where researchers and practitioners 
can present and discuss recent research results on a wide range

of topics, in addition to also exchanging ideas, experiences and 
challenging problems.

The 2013 symposium particularly emphasizes expanding and enhancing the 
dialogue between practitioners and researchers. Industrial

experiences supported by empirical studies are of real interest.

No paper presenting results will be considered for review without an 
explicit description of the empirical strategy applied. Although

not strictly required, the use of structured abstracts for full papers 
is suggested.

- Simulation-based studies in software engineering
- Software project experience and knowledge management
- Software technology transfer to the industry
- Measurement and process improvement programs

All submissions will be peer reviewed. Please note that every accepted 
submission must have a minimum of one author registration.
All submissions should be sent via the web-based submission system at 

Papers should describe original, unpublished work, which is not under 
parallel submission elsewhere. All papers must be submitted

through the Web-based submission system 
(https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esem2013), and using PDF 
format only (please

select 'track' "ESEM 2013"). Papers are limited to 10 pages, must be 
written in English, and must be formatted according to the IEEE

manuscript templates for conference proceedings 

papers that exceed 10 pages, or are outside the scope of the symposium, 
or do not follow the formatting guidelines will be rejected

without review. At least one author of accepted full papers must 
register by the full papers' camera-ready deadline.

The goal of short papers is to promote current work on research and 
practice. Short papers represent an early communication of

research and do not always require complete results as in the case of a 
full paper. In this way authors can introduce new ideas to the

community, discuss ideas and get early feedback. Please note that short 
papers are NOT intended to be position statements. Short

papers that are accepted will be published in the proceedings and 
available through IEEE Xplore. Short papers must be submitted

through the Web-based submission system (please select track "Short 
Papers"), and using PDF format only. Short papers must not exceed

4 pages and must be formatted according to the IEEE manuscript templates 
for conference proceedings

At least one author of accepted short papers must

register by the short papers' camera-ready deadline.

The ESEM Poster Sessions provide an excellent forum for authors to 
present their work in an informal and interactive setting. Posters

are ideal for presenting speculative, late-breaking results or for 
presenting new and innovative work. Poster Sessions separate

themselves from the Short Paper Sessions by allowing authors the ability 
to get immediate, personal feedback from conference attendees

during the break sessions as they present their work. Posters also 
provide conference attendees an opportunity to see emerging work in

the field in a more relaxed setting. Successful posters are carefully 
designed to convey technical details. They should also attract

the attention of attendees as they stroll past the displays. The goal is 
to develop a poster that encourages and facilitates small

groups of individuals interested in a technical area to gather and 
interact. Posters that present work in progress and draw important

conclusions from
practical experience are especially welcome. Posters must be submitted 
through the Web-based submission system (please select track

"Posters"), and using PDF format only. Poster proposals must not exceed 
1 page but need not be formatted according to the IEEE

manuscript templates for conference proceedings 

ESEM 2013 will also feature an Industry Track. Please see
