ISEC 2016 INDUSTRY TRACK

​CFP IN PDF/DOWNLOADABLE FORMAT

This year at ISEC we are introducing the Industry track to bring together industrial and research participants eager to share and brainstorm on common interests in software engineering. This half day session will be composed of invited speeches, paper presentations and discussions with a strong focus on software engineering in practice.

We are seeking following types of submissions.

Experience Reports and Case-Study Papers: Each paper should discuss the context of a problem of practical importance and provide a clear take-away. The innovativeness of the solution, the methodology and overall assessment of benefits, risks and other lessons learned should also be provided.

Talk Proposals: This type of submission is only open to practitioners. We solicit talks on topics that are likely to be relevant and interesting to both industrial and academic attendees. Examples of talks include, but are not limited to: software development in startups, post mortem of software projects, forgotten research topics that are still relevant to industry, new challenges in software engineering because of growth of technologies such as “Internet of Things”, “Big Data” etc. that need help from research.

Submission Details for Industry Track

Submissions must adhere to the ISEC 2016 submission [ACM Templates] and formatting instructions and can be made using the EasyChair link provided below.

At-least one author on the submissions needs to be from industry

Case Study and Experience Reports - Paper submissions must be original (not published or under review elsewhere), include the title of the submission, the name and affiliation of each author, and up to 150-words abstract. These papers should not exceed 7 pages, 6 pages for the main text (including figures, appendix etc) and 1 page for references in standard ACM format.

Talk Proposals - Talk proposals will be reviewed in two phases. For the first phase, the proposal should include a title, "talk description", which describes what the talk will be about, highlighting its key points and the reasons why it is interesting to ISEC attendees (500 words). Submissions should include a speaker biography and history, and can include supporting materials such as white papers or videos. Please note that the target audience of the talk proposal are the members of the program committee. The outcome of the first phase is either rejected or conditionally accepted for the next phase. In the second phase, submitters will be required to prepare the complete presentation. The committee will then review the presentations and make the final accept/reject decisions. Each accepted talk will be allowed one page for an "extended abstract" in the ISEC proceedings. The target audience of this document are the attendees of the conference and the readers of the proceedings.

ISEC 2016 MOBILE SOFTWARE ENGINEERING TRACK

​CFP IN PDF/DOWNLOADABLE FORMAT

Scope (Mobile Software Engineering Track)

We are organizing the Mobile Software Engineering (MSE) track for the first time, as part of the India Software Engineering Conference (ISEC). The number of smartphones in the world is increasing at a dramatic rate. India has nearly 960 million mobile phones and more than 173 million mobile internet users. Many users are switching from feature phones to smartphones. This gives a tremendous scope for development and use of mobile applications. Developing robust, scalable, innovative, green, secure mobile applications requires advanced environments, tools, techniques, and processes.

We solicit contributions in the following areas of mobile software engineering but not limited to the following Topics:

Development of Mobile Apps
Mobile application development Environments and Tools
Agile or Model driven development for mobile
SDLC for Mobile Apps
Mobile and Touch programming languages
Engineering quality attributes like security, privacy, and availability for Mobiles
Performing, Energy Efficient, resource aware app development
Analysis and Re-engineering of Mobile Apps
Qwant Mobile App
Testing and Quality Assurance
Empirical studies, case studies and industry experiences
​Applications of Mobile Apps
Mobile for Finance, Health care
Mobile commerce, Enterprise, Others
Apps for Fitness, Travel & Hospitality, Social

Submission Details

Submissions should contain original research and sufficient detail to assess the merits and relevance of the contribution. The format of the papers should confirm to the ACM guidelines available at ACM publications link. Paper submissions are to be made ONLY using the EasyChair link.This year, we invite papers submissions under two categories:

Regular Papers which can be research or experience 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.

Fast Abstract, maximum of 1 page that should include a short, crisp description of the talk contents, why it is interesting to MSE participants and possible pointers to relevant material. In addition, a short bio of the speaker is required (can be beyond the 1 page limit). The talk can be about emerging ideas, new/innovative environment, or an interesting tool in the mobile world. Fast abstracts will be evaluated for its novelty and potential interest to the audience. The PC may accept conditionally, interact with the authors and after refinements of the abstract, provide the final decision of accept or reject. The author needs to finally submit a 1-page extended abstract of his/her talk

Accepted papers will be published in ACM Digital Library

ISEC Workshops provide opportunities to researchers, industry practitioners and students to discuss specific areas of software engineering in a relatively small gathering. Workshops also act as incubators for the software engineering community to work towards a particular research agenda in software engineering. Focus areas for workshops include all areas of software engineering (please refer to the list in main conference call for paper for the research paper track). Proposal for half day (3 hours) workshops are invited.

Atul Kumar, Workshop Chair, ISEC 2016

A 2-Page Workshop Report (a 2 page report for each workshop) will be published in the proceedings/ACM Digital Library.

If the workshop organizers want to publish a proceeding then they can do the same independent of the main conference. It is not necessary to use ACM. For example, It can be CEUR. Page limits and type of papers (full, short, poster) are also decided by workshop organizers. It is the responsibility of the workshop organizers to publish workshop proceedings if they wish so, conference can just provide some support.
