The ISSTA 2021 Artifact Evaluation (AE) seeks self-nominations for 
reviewers willing to serve on the AE review committee (AEC). Reviewers 
are typically senior Ph.D. students or postdocs and have participated in 
the AE process as authors or reviewers - although neither is a hard 
requirement. We expect reviewers to review 2-3 artifacts between April 
30th, 2021, to June 11th, 2021. More details of the process can be found 

Please nominate yourself by submitting the following form 
or forward this information to researchers you believe might be 
interested. The deadline for application is February 15th, 2021. Note 
that a self-nomination is no guarantee to be invited to serve on the AEC.

We aim for a diverse reviewing committee and especially encourage 
members from underrepresented groups in our field to nominate themselves.

The goal of the AE is to foster replicability and reusability. 
Replicability refers to researchers or practitioners being able to 
validate the paper's results using the provided artifact. Reusability 
means that researchers can use the artifact in a different context, for 
another use case, or to build on and extend the artifact. Overall, the 
artifact evaluation process allows our field to progress by 
incentivizing and supporting authors to make their artifacts openly 
available and improve their quality. See the ACM guidelines on Artifact 
Review and Badging Version: 

In case of any open questions, feel free to reply to 
issta21-artifacts at googlegroups.com.
