RESEARCH TRACK

Innovations (formerly India) in Software Engineering Conference – ISEC 2020 Call for Papers

We invite technical papers describing original and unpublished results of foundational, theoretical, empirical, and applied software and systems engineering research. The goal of the conference is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry to meet and share problems, experiences, and cutting-edge advancements in the field of software and systems engineering. ISEC2020 aims to bring more focus towards software engineering innovations in practice. ISEC2020 also has a special focus on SE methodology to develop AI based system and use of data driven AI/ML in building today’s software.

Submission Details:

Submissions should contain original research and sufficient detail to assess the merits and relevance of the contribution. This year, we invite research papers submissions under two categories: Regular papers and Short papers. Regular papers should not exceed 12 pages, 10 pages for the main text (including figures, appendix etc.) and 2 pages for references in standard ACM format. Short papers should not exceed 5 pages, including references in standard ACM format.

Apart from research papers, regular papers can also be industry papers. Industry papers should address the application of software engineering practices (which may include work on principles, techniques, tools, methods, processes) to a specific business domain or the development of a substantial software platform/system. Each industry paper should describe the context of a problem of practical importance and provide plausible solutions. The innovativeness of the solution, the methodology and overall assessment of benefits, risks and other lessons learned need to be addressed.

Short papers may contain, for example, new interesting ideas which may not be evaluated extensively, tool descriptions or industry case studies. Please note that the papers will be accepted or rejected in the category in which they were submitted; there will be no "demotions" from a Regular to a Short paper.

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
