WSE at ECSA&SPLC 2019: Call for Papers

Women in Software Engineering @ 13th European Conference on Software 
Architecture (ECSA 2019) and the 23rd Systems and Software Product Line 
Conference (SPLC 2019).


Paris France, 9-13 September 2019

It has been widely demonstrated that diversity in gender, culture, 
religion, country, etc. is a key factor to have success and be 
competitive and innovative in software development. In the case of 
gender diversity, the role of women in the Computing area has gained 
more and more importance with the emerging information age. However, 
setting up gender-balanced teams in ICT companies and in STEM 
universities and research centers is still hard to realize in practice, 
even if all recognize the importance of achieving gender diversity for 
the success of projects.

In this scenario, the special track on "Women in Software Engineering" 
is part of the two co-located conferences: the 13th premier European 
Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA 2019) and the 23rd Systems and 
Software Product Line Conference (SPLC 2019), following the success of 
the past editions of the "Women in Software Architecture" track of 
previous ECSA editions. WSE will provide a forum for discussions about 
how to achieve more diversity in SE / STEM. Both women and men are 
invited to collaborate and attend to this track. Students, industry 
professionals, academics, and other leaders in computing are welcome to 
promote networking and technical discussion to motivate the 
participation and visibility of women in STEM degree and industry.

There will be a mix of presentations and a panel to discuss about 
current and future issues in the field by leading experts from industry 
and academia.

Paper submissions must be made electronically via the online EasyChair 
submission site for the ECSA 2019 main conference.

We seek contributions (up to 4-6 pages) about summaries, preliminary 
results from work-in-progress, discussion of challenges, position 
papers, experience reports, or studies; all regarding gender diversity 
in Software Engineering, and more generally in STEM, both in industry 
and academia.

The evaluation criteria for submissions will be whether they contribute 
ideas or results to the challenge of achieve more diversity in SE / STEM 
and whether the argumentation and/or study are sound.

All contributions will undergo a peer-review process. The accepted 
papers will be included in the ECSA 2019 companion volume to be 
published by ACM. For this, the submission must be formatted according 
to the ACM SIG Proceedings Template.

Paper registration is required, allowing the inclusion of the paper in 
the proceedings. An author or a proxy attending WSE at ECSA&SPLC 2019 must 
present the paper.
