during the grace period.

ERA Track

The goal of the Early Research Achievements (ERA) track is to provide
researchers and practitioners with a forum for presenting great,
promising ideas in early stages of research. These ideas do not
require a strong empirical evaluation! The 2014 ERA track aims to
provide constructive feedback to guide you from your initial idea and
limited evaluation towards a solid ICSME 2014 paper with strong
empirical underpinnings. The topics of interest for this track are the
same as for the main research track, i.e., all the topics in the
research and practice of software maintenance and evolution. Papers
submitted to the ERA track must not have been accepted previously for
publication or submitted for review to another conference, journal, or

Doctoral Symposium Track

As with previous editions, ICSME 2014 will feature a double doctoral

  Pre-doctoral: The first part is dedicated to PhD students in the
  midst of their doctoral studies in the field of software
  maintenance, who intend to finish their PhD within the next two
  years (2015-2016). This symposium aims to provide PhD students with
  an opportunity to present their ongoing work, to interact with other
  researchers in the field, and to get constructive feedback from
  senior researchers. Participants will discuss their goals, methods,
  and results at an early stage in their research.

  Post-doctoral: The second part is dedicated to researchers who have
  delivered their PhD dissertations in the area of software
  maintenance and evolution within the last 2 years (2012-2014). This
  symposium aims to provide a forum for post-docs to present the
  highlights of their work to the ICSME community. Moreover,
  participants will be asked to reflect on the PhD process itself, and
  share some lessons learned with PhD students as well as PhD

Industrial Track

This track brings together participants from academia and industry in
a venue that highlights practical and real-world studies of software
maintenance and evolution. This track aims to foster
mutually-beneficial links between those engaged in scientific research
and practitioners working to improve software maintenance and
evolution practices. Experiences from practitioners provide crucial
input into future research directions and allow others to learn from
successes and failures.

Further details are available at:

Tool Demo Track

This track provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners
to present and discuss the most recent advances, experiences, and
challenges in the field of software maintenance with the goal of
allowing live presentation of new research tools. Whether the tools
are early research prototypes or polished tools prepared for
commercialization (but not yet commercialized), this track provides
the perfect opportunity to reach an international audience of
researchers and practitioners, and solicit critical feedback.
