Innovations in Software Engineering Conference (ISEC 2022), 24-26 February, Gujarat: Submissions Deadline Extended to 24 September

September 10, 2021

ISEC is the annual conference of iSOFT, the India chapter of ACM SIGSOFT. The 15th edition of the Innovations in Software Engineering Conference will be held at Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology (DA-IICT), Gandhinagar, Gujarat, India. The goal of the conference is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry to meet and share research problems, experiences, and cutting-edge advancements in the field of software and systems engineering.

ISEC 2022 invites the submission of technical papers describing original and unpublished results of foundational, theoretical, empirical, and applied software and systems engineering research. We are extending the deadline to 24 September.

Submission Details:
We invite submissions under three categories: regular papers, short papers and posters.

Regular papers should not exceed 11 pages, 10 pages for the main text (including figures, appendix etc.) and 1 page for references in standard ACM format. Regular paper submissions are expected to contain in-depth descriptions of the new ideas along with a detailed evaluation and sufficient evidence for verifying the results. Extended versions of selected papers (to be decided by the program committee) will be invited to a proposed special issue of the Journal of Systems and Software.

Short papers should not exceed 5 pages, including references in standard ACM format. Short papers may contain, for example, new interesting ideas and contributions which may not be evaluated extensively, tool descriptions or case studies. However, the ideas must be robust and of technical merit, with convincing evidence that they can be taken towards completion.

Poster papers should not exceed 2 pages. A poster paper is intended to describe work that is at an early stage in development. Accepted poster papers will be provided with an opportunity to display a poster and to discuss the ideas with delegates during a dedicated session of the conference.

Submissions are invited in all areas of software and systems engineering, including but not limited to the following:

Software Engineering Methods:

  • Agile Methods

We are pleased to announce a best paper award for regular papers and a best poster award for poster papers, for ISEC 2022. The awards will be decided based on reviews received by the Program Chair and the ISEC Steering Committee and will be announced during the conference.

We welcome submissions from Industry in the form of experience reports and/or case studies. Such submissions should address the application of software engineering practices (which may include work on principles, techniques, tools, methods, processes) to a specific business domain or to the development of a substantial software platform/system. Each paper should describe the context of a problem of practical importance and provide plausible solutions.

Submissions must comply with the ACM plagiarism policy and procedures In particular, they must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review elsewhere while under review for ISEC.

Accepted papers in all categories will be published in the ACM Digital Library and indexed by DBLP. If a submission is accepted, at least one author of the paper is required to attend the conference and present the paper.
