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

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.

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.

2. 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!
