General information

EASE2018 welcomes high quality submissions, describing original and unpublished research, as full papers (11 pages), short papers (6 pages) and impact-to-industry papers (6 pages). EASE 2018 will also feature an Emerging Researchers’ Forum. Submissions may cover any topic relating to evidence based software engineering, such as:

  • Experiments and quasi-experiments
  • Replications of empirical studies
  • Case studies
  • Experience reports
  • Survey research
  • Field studies
  • Ethnographic and observational studies
  • Systematic reviews, mapping studies and meta-analyses
  • Methodological issues and practices
  • Action research
  • Tools to support research and evaluation in software engineering

Submitted papers must be written in English, should not have been submitted for review or published elsewhere, must conform to the ACM SIG Proceedings template, and will be accepted via EasyChair. All papers will be double-blind reviewed by at least three members of the EASE International Programme Committee. We also welcome submissions from industry addressing experiences of assessing current practice, adopting and evaluating new technologies, and applying local or contextual evidence.

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings in the ACM Digital Library. The best papers will be invited to submit extended versions for publication in a journal special issue.

At least one author of each paper should register to attend the conference, and do so before the camera ready deadline.

Submission requirements for full papers

To be announced.

Submission requirements for short papers

This track provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present their research, practical experience, or issues related to empirical software engineering. In particular, the goal of the track is to promote early-stage and ongoing work, research, practices, experiences, and issues that are not at a mature enough stage to be submitted as full papers. Submissions should be 4 – 6 pages, including figures, tables, references etc.

Important Information:

  • Submissions that exceed the page limit (longer than 6 pages), or are outside the scope of the conference, or do not follow the formatting guidelines will be rejected without review.
  • Short paper track submissions must be submitted through the EasyChair submission system by choosing the “short paper track”.
  • At least one author of the paper must register to attend the conference, and complete that registration by the camera ready deadline.

Short Papers Co-Chairs:

  • Kelly Blincoe (University of Auckland, New Zealand)
  • Sarah Beecham (Lero, Ireland)
