  CALL FOR PAPERS (download pdf doc)

Submission deadline is Over.

The ISEC conference is planned as the main yearly conference of the newly created Special Interest Group on Software Engineering, SIGSE under the umbrella of the Computer Society of India, CSI. The Second ISEC will be held in Pune, an important IT destination in India. ISEC will bring together researchers and practitioners from across the world to share the results of their work. We invite technical papers describing original and unpublished results of conceptual, empirical, and experimental software engineering research. Papers describing Industry Experience are especially welcome. Our goal is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry to meet and share cutting-edge advancements in the field of software engineering. All submissions should clearly identify their contribution to the state of the art and their potential usefulness. Work that has appeared elsewhere (in some conference or journal) cannot be submitted for ISEC. Work that is currently under consideration elsewhere (a conference or a journal) also cannot be submitted. Submissions are invited broadly in all aspects of software engineering, including but not limited to, the following:

- Requirements Engineering - Testing and Static Analysis
- Empirical Software Engineering and Metrics - Specification and Verification
- Software Performance Engineering - Model driven software engineering
- Software Architecture and Design - Tools and Environments
- Development Paradigms and Processes - Maintenance and Evolution
- People issues in Software Engineering - Quality Management
- Component Based Software Engineering - Object-Oriented Technology
- Service oriented architecture and web services - Distributed software development
- Case Studies and Industrial Experience - Software as a Service

In cooperation with ACM SIGSOFT, some of the best papers from the flagship conferences FSE (Symposium on Foundations of Software Engg) and ICSE (International Conference on Software Engineering) will be presented as Keynotes/Invited papers in ISEC.

Research Papers

Research papers should describe innovative and significant original research relevant to the topics listed in the ISEC Call For Papers. Submissions must clearly and comprehensively report on relevant related work and on how a paper's contributions advance the state of the art. Research papers should not exceed ten pages, and follow ACM SIG guidelines for formatting.

Experience Reports Experience reports are not meant to report new results or new knowledge but describe some interesting experience that is not clear or known. It could be on experience with some technology or methodology, or anything else. An experience report is expected to give a brief description of current state of practice in the chosen problem to motivate the importance of what is being discussed, describe the approach or experiment, and must clearly document the benefits or reasons why the experience should be of interest to readers. The paper should also cite some key references in theoretical and other work on that problem and relate the work done to the existing theories and concepts in that problem area. An experience report is generally not very useful if it merely describes "this is how we did it" - proper context, motivation, comparison, and references must be provided. Experience reports should also follow the ACM format and must be no more than 4 pages long.

Important Dates (All tentative)

Notification Of Acceptance Oct 23, 2008
Camera ready copy due Dec 04, 2008
Conference Feb 23-26, 2009

Paper submissions will be reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical quality, and relevance to conference. Submission of papers will be carried out electronically via the Web in PDF format. We plan to have the proceedings published through ACM and have it available in ACM Digital library. There are also plans to bring out a special issue in some journal of repute.

Tutorials and Workshops

There will be a limited number of workshops and tutorials in the conference. Proposals for tutorials and workshops may be sent to the concerned chairs.
