La Habana, Cuba, April 22 - 23, 2019
Varadero, Cuba, April 24 - 26, 2019


CIbSE is the leading research forum on Software Engineering (SE) in
Ibero-America. The primary objective of this conference is to promote
high-quality scientific research in Ibero-American countries and, thus,
support the researchers in this community in publishing and discussing
their work. Also, the conference fosters collaboration and
cross-fertilization among academics, students, and practitioners from

CIbSE 2019 will be held in Havana as well as Varadero, Cuba. The event will
include various tracks, an industrial session, keynotes from influential
researchers of the Software Engineering community, and social events.

The conference will be held in conjunction with two satellite events: the
Doctoral Symposium and the second version of the Ibero-American School on
Software Engineering (EIbAIS). The Doctoral Symposium is organized to
discuss work in progress of Ph.D. topics related to the general area of
Software Engineering. The school will be led by renowned lecturers,
offering an attractive program, combining lectures and tutorials based on
the current trends in Software Engineering.

We invite you to submit papers to one or more of our main tracks:
○ SET - Software Engineering Track
○ RET - Requirements Engineering Track
○ ESELAW - Experimental Software Engineering Track

Papers can be submitted in any of the available categories (Technical
Papers and Emerging Ideas) and the official CIbSE languages: English,
Spanish, and Portuguese. Below, you will find the details of each track and
the general organization committee.

For more information, please visit the CIbSE 2019 website (
http://www.cibsecuba2019.com/), or contact us directly via e-mail (
info.cibse at gmail.com) or our social media channels on Twitter and Facebook.

We invite authors to submit high-quality research papers describing
significant, original, and not previously published results in any of the
following tracks and categories:

● SET - Software Engineering Track
● RET - Requirements Engineering Track
● ESELAW - Experimental Software Engineering Track


1. Technical Papers (not exceeding 14 pages): Technical papers should
describe innovative research in the topics of the main tracks. Papers in
this submission category should describe a novel contribution to the topics
and should carefully support claims of novelty with citations to the
relevant literature.

2. Evaluation criteria: Technical papers are evaluated by originality,
soundness, relevance, the importance of contribution, the strength of
validation, quality of presentation and appropriate comparison to related
work. In case a submission builds upon the previous work of the author(s),
the novelty of the new contribution must be described clearly concerning
the previous work. Technical papers need to discuss openly how the results
were validated.

3. Emerging Ideas Papers (not exceeding eight pages): Emerging ideas papers
describe new, non-conventional approaches on the topics of the Foundations
tracks, that depart from standard practice. They are intended to describe
clear research ideas that are at an early stage of the investigation.

Evaluation criteria: Emerging ideas papers will be assessed primarily on
their level of originality and potential for impact on the field regarding
promoting innovative thinking. Hence, inadequacies in the state-of-the-art
and the pertinence, correctness, and impact of the idea must be described
precisely. While the idea that is described does not need to be fully
validated, a presentation of preliminary results that provide initial
insights into the feasibility and/or impact of the idea is expected.
Provided acceptance, authors are asked to prepare a poster for presentation
at the Poster Session. The Poster Session is separated from the Technical
Papers’ Sessions and shall allow authors to get immediate, personal
feedback from conference attendees during the session in which they present
their work. Posters also provide an opportunity to see new work in the
field in a more relaxed setting to foster discussions and exchange of ideas.

CIbSE 2019 organizes a Doctoral Symposium Track (DS), aimed at
disseminating research-in-progress conducted by novice researchers. A board
of experts will discuss with the researchers to suggest new perspectives
and improvements to the Ph.D. thesis.
The submitted research can address any of the CIbSE 2019 research topics.
We recommend although it is not compulsory, that the research is at an
intermediate stage (~ 2nd year) so that experts’ suggestions could be
included in the Ph.D. work.
The suggested paper structure is as follows:
● Introduction to the field of research and identification of the main
challenges therein;
● Explicit formulation of the research questions and objectives justifying
why they were chosen;
● Outline of the current knowledge of the problem domain as well as the
state of existing  solutions;
● Sketch of the research methodology that is being applied;
● Introduction of the proposed solution and the results achieved so far;
● The statement in what aspects the suggested solution is different or
better as compared to existing approaches;
● An indication of the outstanding issues and description of the next steps
that are planned;
● Provision of a list of references.

Doctoral Symposium papers shall be authored by the doctoral candidate
exclusively (thus, the name of the supervisor should not be included). All
papers must be submitted in PDF format through EasyChair, using the link
available in the CIbSE 2019 webpage. Submissions must be written in
English, Portuguese, or Spanish. Moreover, the paper should not exceed
eight pages, and it should be formatted according to the LNCS style. The
authors of accepted DS papers must register by the camera-ready deadline.

The Ibero-American School on Software Engineering (EIbAIS) represents the
CIbSE initiative to disseminate software engineering knowledge in
Ibero-America. It started as a natural evolution of the CIbSE tutorials and
short courses, by including prospective topics in the field and
non-exclusively regarding the main CIbSE tracks: technologies,
experimentation, and requirements.

EIbAIS aims to promote a forum for discussions regarding software
engineering and its related technologies and theoretical foundations,
allowing the participation of practitioners, undergraduate and graduate
students and researchers in the activities.

As in any CIbSE related activity, all lecturers are presented by volunteers
engaged with contributing to CIbSE community and the spreading of Software
Engineering knowledge in Ibero-America. However, depending on the number of
registrations in EIbAIS and the CIbSE budget, some supporting for traveling
and conference registration should be allocated for them.

In its second issue, EIbAIS is going to be organized into two basic
categories of plenary sessions for two days: state-of-the-practice and
state-of-the-art modules.

The modules regarding the state-of-the-practice offer discussions on topics
of general interest and usually representing local demand. These modules
support the amendment of knowledge and practical issues to the
participants, presenting evidence-based software engineering results to the
audience. Examples of state-of-practice topics include CASE tools, software
testing of conventional systems, scenario-based specifications, surveys,
controlled experiments, and so on.

The modules regarding the state-of-the-art offer discussion on topics of
prospective interest and usually representing the software engineering
community perspectives. These modules intend to provide information on
ongoing and next to coming software engineering technologies candidates
that could represent breakthroughs concepts in the field. Examples of
state-of-the-art topics include requirements specification for Ubiquitous
systems, software testing of context awareness systems, software
engineering for the Internet of Everything, simulation-based experiments in
software engineering, synthesis of evidence, and so on.

All the participants that take part in the plenary sessions will get a
certificate of participation, indicating the modules, lecturers, and

The main topics for both types of modules of 2nd EIbAIS are going to be
announced soon!
