ICSME 2018: 34th International Conference on Software Maintenance and Evolution
September 23-29, 2018
Madrid, Spain


IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance and Evolution (ICSME) is the premier forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, experiences, and challenges in software maintenance and evolution.

We invite high quality submissions describing significant, original, and unpublished results related to but not limited to any of the following software maintenance and evolution topics (in alphabetical order):
- Change and defect management
- Code cloning and provenance
- Concept and feature location
- Continuous integration/deployment
- Empirical studies of software maintenance and evolution
- Evolution of non-code artefacts
- Human aspects of software maintenance and evolution
- Maintenance and evolution of model-based methods
- Maintenance and evolution processes
- Maintenance and evolution of mobile apps
- Maintenance versus release process
- Mining software repositories
- Productivity of software engineers
- Release engineering
- Reverse engineering and re-engineering
- Run-time evolution and dynamic configuration
- Service oriented and cloud computing
- Software and system comprehension
- Software migration and renovation
- Software quality assessment
- Software refactoring and restructuring
- Software testing

ICSME welcomes innovative ideas that are timely, well presented and evaluated. All submissions must position themselves within the existing literature, describe the relevance of the results to specific software engineering goals, and include a clear motivation and presentation of the work.

To establish a consistent set of expectations in the review process, the authors are asked, as part of the online submission process, to identify their papers with one or more of the following categories:
- Analytical
- Empirical
- Technological
- Methodological
- Perspectives

All papers should be full papers, and papers may belong to more than one category. Note that papers from any research area can fall into any of these categories, as the categories are constructed surrounding methodological approaches, not research topics (e.g., one could write an analytical paper on a new analysis technique, an empirical paper that compares a broad range of such techniques, a technological paper that makes an analysis technique practically feasible and available, or a perspectives paper that reviews the state of the art and lays out a roadmap of analysis techniques for the future).

INDUSTRY TRACK (https://icsme2018.github.io/cfp/IndustryTrackCFP.html)
The industry 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.

Abstract submission: June 9th, 2018 (Saturday)
Paper submission: June 16th, 2018 (Saturday)
Author notification: July 6th, 2018

Early Bird Registration: July 15th, 2018

TOOL DEMO TRACK (https://icsme2018.github.io/cfp/ToolDemoTrackCFP.html)
The ICSME 2018 Tool Demonstration track represents a unique opportunity for practitioners and researchers alike to present and discuss novel software maintenance and evolution tools.

Abstract submission: May 20th, 2018
Paper submission: May 27th, 2018
Author notification: June 24th, 2018
Camera ready submission: July 15th, 2018

DOCTORAL SYMPOSIUM (https://icsme2018.github.io/cfp/DoctoralSymposiumCFP.html)
The ICSME 2018 doctoral symposium features three tracks - early pre-doctoral, late pre-doctoral, and post-doctoral. Our overall goal is to help the next generation of ICSME researchers form connections and gain advice on their proposed areas of research. Each track will work towards this goal as appropriate for its career preparation stage. The three tracks will meet together for the day to enable multi-level peer mentoring as more senior students and junior researchers reflect on their experiences during their PhD studies.

Paper submission: Saturday, June 16th, 2018
Author notification: Friday, July 6th, 2018
Camera ready: Sunday, July 15th, 2018
