Due to the uncertainty regarding the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic, 
CIbSE 2022 will be finally held as a **virtual conference**. In 
addition, to promote participation and contribution submission, there 
will be **no registration fee** and the submission dates have been 
extended (firm, final deadlines) as follows.

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 2022 will be held as a virtual conference. In this edition of the 
conference, the three traditional tracks (Software Engineering, 
Requirements Engineering, and Empirical Software Engineering) are going 
to be merged into a single main conference. CIbSE 2022 will include 
keynotes from influential researchers of the Software Engineering 
community and will be held in conjunction with three satellite events: a 
Doctoral Symposium, the 5th edition of the Advanced Ibero-American 
School on Software Engineering (EIbAIS), and Industry Talks. The 
Doctoral Symposium is organized to discuss work in progress of PhD 
theses related to the general area of Software Engineering. EIbAIS 
combines lectures and tutorials on the current trends in Software 
Engineering by renowned speakers. The Industry Talks aim at 
approximating academics and practitioners from the local community to 
discuss state-of-the-practice Software Engineering topics. The Industry 
Talks will be organised as an on-site activity in Cordoba, Argentina, in 
addition to as a streamed event.


The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Application of artificial intelligence to software engineering
- Continuous software engineering practices (e.g., agile development and 
- Empirical software engineering
- Formal methods applied to software engineering
- Human and social aspects of software engineering
- Mining software repositories and software analytics
- Model-driven software engineering
- Requirements engineering
- Search-based software engineering
- Software architecture
- Software dependability
- Software economics
- Software ecosystems and systems-of-systems
- Software engineering education and training
- Software engineering for emerging application domains (e.g., 
artificial intelligence, big data, blockchain, cloud computing, 
cyber-physical systems, IoT, and quantum computing)
- Software engineering in industry
- Software maintenance and evolution
- Software metrics and measurement
- Software process
- Software product lines
- Software quality and quality models
- Software reuse
- Software testing
-Technical debt management


We invite authors to submit high-quality research papers describing 
significant, original, and not previously published results on Software 
Engineering, in any of the official CIbSE languages: English, Spanish, 
and Portuguese. The following paper categories are welcome.

** Technical papers ** (not exceeding 15 pages):  papers describing 
innovative research in the topics of the conference. 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.
Technical papers will be evaluated by originality, soundness, relevance, 
importance of contribution, 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.

** Emerging Ideas papers ** (not exceeding 8 pages): papers describing 
new, non-conventional approaches that depart from standard practice, on 
the topics of the conference. They are intended to describe clear 
research ideas that are at an early stage of the investigation.
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 the impact of the idea is expected.

Any paper that is not in the scope of the conference, does not follow 
the formatting guidelines, or was submitted or published in any other 
forum (conference or journal) will be desk-rejected without review. All 
other submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least three members of the 
Program Committee. The best paper will receive an award certificate.


All papers must be submitted through EasyChair 
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cibse2022), using PDF format 
only. Submissions must be formatted according to the style of the 
Brazilian Computing Society for conference papers 

The accepted papers will be included in the proceedings made available 
online by the Digital Open Library of the Brazilian Computing Society - 
SOL (https://sol.sbc.org.br/index.php/anais) and Curran Associates 
(http://www.proceedings.com/), and later indexed by DBLP and Scopus.

At least one author of each accepted paper must register by the 
camera-ready deadline. Some author of each accepted paper must present 
it at the conference or the paper will be excluded from the proceedings.


Authors of papers on the topics of interest of the conference and 
accepted in Q1 or Q2 JCR journals are invited to present their research 
work at CIbSE. This offers an opportunity for the authors to discuss 
their work with the community as well as to enrich the technical program 
of CIbSE. Presentations of journal-first papers will be included into 
CIbSE 2022 Main Conference.

The main evaluation criterion to select journal-first papers is the 
description of original results that are not extensions of previous 
conference papers. In addition, the paper must have been accepted for 
publication in the journal no earlier than January 1st, 2021 and must 
have not been presented at any other conference as a journal-first 

At least one author per selected journal first paper must register and 
present it at the conference.

Authors interested in presenting journal first papers at CIbSE 2022 must 
submit their proposals in PDF format through EasyChair 
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cibse2022). The following 
information must be provided: (i) paper title; (ii) list of authors; 
(iii) keywords; (iv) journal and information about its impact factor and 
its rank; (v) DOI; (vi) abstract, and; (vi) a short statement on how the 
work satisfies the criteria above.


The Doctoral Symposium aims 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 PhD 

The submitted research can address any of CIbSE 2022 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 PhD 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 
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cibse2022). Submissions must be 
written in English, Portuguese, or Spanish. Moreover, the papers must 
not exceed eight pages and must be formatted according to the style of 
the Brazilian Computing Society for conference papers 
Accepted papers will be included in the proceedings of the conference. 
The authors of accepted papers must register by the camera-ready deadline.
