ICSE 2015


The 37th International Conference on Software Engineering

May 16-24, 2015 - Firenze, Italy

Call for contributions to the
Software Engineering In Practice (SEIP) Track

The Software Engineering in Practice (SEIP) track is the privileged
ICSE track for researchers and practitioners to discuss innovations
and solutions to concrete software engineering problems. SEIP provides
a unique forum for networking, exchanging new ideas, fostering
innovations, and forging long-term collaborations for addressing the
most interesting software engineering research directions. Following
its tradition, SEIP will gather highly-qualified industrial and
research participants that are eager to communicate and share common
interests in software engineering. The technical program of the track
will be composed of invited speeches, paper presentations, and panel
discussions with a strong focus on software engineering practitioners.

* Submissions *

Submissions that adhere to the ICSE 2015 submission and formatting instructions can be made using the EasyChair link provided here:


We are seeking the following types of submissions. All submissions
have to be written exclusively in English.

* Experience report and case studies papers (10 pages): Each paper
  should provide clear take-away value by describing the context of a
  problem of practical importance; discussing why the solution of the
  problem is innovative, effective, or efficient; providing a concise
  explanation of the approach, techniques, and methodologies employed;
  and explaining the best practices that emerged, tools developed,
  and/or software processes involved. Furthermore, papers should
  describe broader applicability, an overall assessment of benefits,
  risks and mitigations, and other lessons learned. Experience reports
  and case studies may be up to ten pages in length (including
  figures, tables, appendices, and references) and will appear in the
  ICSE Companion proceedings.

  Paper submissions must be original (not published or under review
  elsewhere), include the title of the submission, the name and
  affiliation of each author, an up to 150-words abstract, and up to 8

  Accepted papers will be included in the ICSE Companion
  proceedings. IEEE Software will recognize the best paper of the SEIP
  track with an award at the conference.

* Panel proposals (2 pages): We solicit panel proposals on topics that
  are likely to be relevant and of interest to industrial
  attendees. Each proposal should describe the topic to be discussed,
  argue why the topic is timely and of interest, and identify an
  initial panel membership with associated bios of identified

  Each accepted panel will be allowed two pages in the ICSE Companion

* Talk proposals (*NEW*): This type of submission is only open to
  practitioners. We solicit talks on topics that are likely to be
  relevant and interesting to both industrial and academic
  attendees. Examples of talks include, but are not limited to: post
  mortem of software projects, forgotten research topics that are
  still highly relevant to industry, new challenges in software
  engineering that need help from research.

  Talk proposals should include the title, the name and affiliation of
  each presenter, a short abstract for the conference program (150
  words), and up to 8 keywords. In addition the proposal should
  include a "talk description", which describes what the talk will be
  about, highlighting its key points and the reason why it is
  interesting to ICSE attendees (500 words). Submissions should
  include a speaker biography and history, and can include supporting
  materials such as white papers or videos. Submissions must also
  indicate a desired length of either 15 min or 30 min. Please note
  that the target audience of the talk proposal are the members of the
  program committee.

  Talk proposals will be reviewed in two phases. The outcome of the
  first phase is either rejected or conditionally accepted for the
  next phase. In the second phase, submitters will be required to
  prepare the complete presentation. The committee will then review
  the presentations and make the final accept/reject decisions.

  Each accepted talk will be allowed two pages for an "extended
  abstract" in the ICSE Companion proceedings. The target audience of
  this document are the attendees of the conference and the readers of
  the proceedings.

*  Evaluation *

All submissions will be reviewed by at least two members of the
Software Engineering in Practice Program Committee. Submissions must
not have been previously published or concurrently submitted
elsewhere. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of practicality
to industry, originality, significance of contribution, applicability,
quality of presentation, and discussion to related work.
