The Evaluation and Assessment in Software Engineering (EASE) conference is an internationally leading venue for academics and practitioners to present and discuss their research on evidence based software engineering and its implications for software practice. The 22nd edition of EASE will take place on 28 & 29 June 2018 in Christchurch, New Zealand, hosted by the University of Canterbury. A co-located Emerging Researchers’ Forum will take place on 27 June 2018.
EASE2018 welcomes high quality submissions, describing original and unpublished research, as full papers (11 pages), short papers (6 pages) and impact-to-industry papers (6 pages). All papers will be double-blind reviewed.
The purpose of the double-blind review process is to help ensure reviewers judge a paper on its merits, independent of potential (unconscious) bias introduced through knowledge of the authors. With this in mind, double-blind papers should adhere to the following rules:
- Author identity and institutions must be omitted (or replaced with fictitious alternatives, to maintain formatting), and
- Citations to the authors’ own work should be in the third person (e.g., write “We extend the work of X…” rather “We extend our work …”), and
- Acknowledgments to supervisors and peers may need to be disguised in some way during the review process e.g. rather than “I’d like to thank X for supervising this work”, perhaps instead write something like, “I’d like to thank my supervisor [name to be supplied if/once paper accepted] for supervisor this work …”
Registration information will be published in due course. EASE2018 will very likely charge an ‘additional paper fee‘ for an author who is presenting more than one paper. For example, an author presenting three papers will pay a registration fee to cover the first paper, plus two additional paper fees.
Special Issue: To complement the conference, the Journal of Systems and Software have kindly agreed to publish a Special Issue. Authors submitting papers to EASE 2018 are encouraged to also submit complementary and fuller papers to the Special Issue. Further information on the Special Issue will be provided in due course.
