This year at ISEC we are introducing the Industry track to bring together industrial and research participants eager to share and brainstorm on common interests in software engineering. This half day session will be composed of invited speeches, paper presentations and discussions with a strong focus on software engineering in practice.

We are seeking following types of submissions.

Experience Reports and Case-Study Papers: Each paper should discuss the context of a problem of practical importance and provide a clear take-away. The innovativeness of the solution, the methodology and overall assessment of benefits, risks and other lessons learned should also be provided.

Talk Proposals: This type of submission is only open to practitioners. We solicit talks on topics that are likely to be relevant and interesting to both industrial and academic attendees. Examples of talks include, but are not limited to: software development in startups, post mortem of software projects, forgotten research topics that are still relevant to industry, new challenges in software engineering  because of  growth of technologies such as “Internet of Things”, “Big Data” etc. that need help from research.

Submission Details for Industry Track

Submissions must adhere to the ISEC 2016 submission [ACM Templates] and formatting instructions and can be made using the EasyChair link provided below. 

At-least one author on the submissions needs to be from industry

Case Study and Experience Reports - Paper submissions must be original (not published or under review elsewhere), include the title of the submission, the name and affiliation of each author, and up to 150-words abstract. These papers should not exceed 7 pages, 6 pages for the main text (including figures, appendix etc) and 1 page for references in standard ACM format.

Talk Proposals - Talk proposals will be reviewed in two phases. For the first phase, the proposal should include a title, "talk description", which describes what the talk will be about, highlighting its key points and the reasons why it is interesting to ISEC attendees (500 words). Submissions should include a speaker biography and history, and can include supporting materials such as white papers or videos. Please note that the target audience of the talk proposal are the members of the program committee. The outcome of the first phase is either rejected or conditionally accepted for the next phase. In the second phase, submitters will be required to prepare the complete presentation. The committee will then review the presentations and make the final accept/reject decisions. Each accepted talk will be allowed one page for an "extended abstract" in the ISEC proceedings. The target audience of this document are the attendees of the conference and the readers of the proceedings.
