Full paper submission date: March 16, 2014
Notification date: June 16, 2014
Camera ready date: August 18, 2014

All submission deadlines are 11:59 PM AoE (Anywhere on Earth) on the respective dates.


We invite high quality submissions describing original and unpublished results of theoretical, empirical, conceptual, and experimental software engineering research. Contributions should describe innovative and significant original research relevant to FSE. Submissions of papers describing groundbreaking approaches to emerging problems will also be considered. Submissions that facilitate reproducibility by using available data sets or making the described tools publicly available are especially encouraged. Papers submitted for consideration should not have been already published elsewhere and should not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere during the duration of consideration. Specifically, authors are required to adhere to the ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism and the ACM Policy on Prior Publication and Simultaneous Submissions.

* How to Submit

At the time of submission all papers must conform to the FSE 2014 Format and Submission Guidelines, and must not exceed 11 pages, with up to 10 pages for all text and figures, and up to one additional page for the list of references. All submissions must be in English and in PDF format. Submissions that do not comply with the above instructions will be desk rejected without review. Papers must be submitted electronically through the FSE submission site. Each submission will be reviewed by at least two members of the Program Committee. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of originality, importance of contribution, soundness, evaluation, quality of presentation and appropriate comparison to related work. The program committee as a whole will make final decisions about which submissions to accept for presentation at the conference.

* Artifact Evaluation

Results presented in technical papers are often validated or supported by software artifacts. To reward the effort of creating artifacts, authors of accepted research paper may, if they wish, have their tools, data or model evaluated by the Artifact Evaluation Committee. After the research paper notification, authors of accepted papers will be contacted to submit their artifact for evaluation. (Authors are also encouraged to make available online, when applicable and at the time of their submission, research artifacts related to their submitted work.) Artifacts that are positively evaluated, will be formally recognized in the proceedings and at the conference. To recognize the contribution of a significant and high-quality research artifact, the program committee will select one of the accepted papers to receive a "Best Artifact Award".
