CALL FOR PAPERS
21st Iberoamerican Conference on Software Engineering (CIbSE 2018)

Bogotá, Colombia, April 23 - 27, 2018

http://cibseconference.org

CIbSE is the leading research forum on Software Engineering (SE)
in Ibero-America. The main objective of this conference is to promote
high-quality scientific research in Ibero-American countries, thus supporting
the researchers in this community in publishing and discussing their work. In
addition, the conference fosters collaboration and cross-fertilization among
software academics, students, and industry.

CibSE 2018 will be held at the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, one of
the most vibrant cities in South America and beating heart of Colombia. The
event will include various tracks, industry exhibition, keynote speeches by
influential researchers of the SE community, and social events.

The conference will be held in conjunction with two satellite events: the
Doctoral Symposium and the first version of the Ibero-American School on
Software Engineering. The Doctoral Symposium is organized to discuss work in
progress in Software Engineering during the PhD program. The school will be
led by renowned lecturers, offering an attractive program, combining lectures
and tutorials based on the current trends of Software Engineering.

We invite you to submit papers to one or more of our Foundations tracks:
	SET - Software Engineering Track
	WER - Requirements Engineering Track
	ESELAW - Experimental Software Engineering Track

Papers can be submitted in any of the three available categories (i.e.,
Technical, (NEW!) Emerging ideas, and (NEW!) Tools) and the CIbSE official
languages: English, Spanish, and Portuguese. Below, you will find the details
of each track and the general organization committee.

For more information go to CibSE 2018 website (http://cibseconference.org),
or contact us through e-mail (info.cibse@gmail.com) or any of our social
media outlets (Twitter and Facebook).


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FOUNDATIONS TRACKS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We invite authors to submit high quality research papers describing significant,
original, and unpublished results in any of the following tracks and categories:

TRACKS
	SET - Software Engineering Track
	WER - Requirements Engineering Track
	ESELAW - Experimental Software Engineering Track

CATEGORIES
1. Technical Papers (not exceeding 14 pages): Technical papers should describe
innovative research in the topics of the Foundations tracks. Papers in this
submission category should describe a novel contribution to the topics and
should carefully support claims of novelty with citations to the relevant
literature.

Evaluation criteria: Technical papers are evaluated on the basis of originality,
soundness, relevance, importance of contribution, strength of validation,
quality of presentation and appropriate comparison to related work. Where a
submission builds upon previous work of the author(s), the novelty of the
new contribution must be described clearly with respect to the previous
work. Technical papers need to discuss clearly how the results were validated.

2. (NEW!) Emerging Ideas Papers (not exceeding 8 pages): Emerging ideas papers
describe new, non-conventional approaches on the topics of the Foundations
tracks, that depart from standard practice. They are intended to describe
well-defined research ideas that are at an early stage of investigation.

Evaluation criteria: Emerging ideas papers will be assessed primarily on
their level of originality and potential for impact on the field in terms of
promoting innovative thinking. Hence, inadequacies in the state-of-the-art
and the pertinence, correctness, and impact of the idea must be described
clearly. While the idea that is described does not need to be fully validated,
a presentation of preliminary results that provide initial insights into
the feasibility and/or impact of the idea is expected. In case of paper
acceptance, authors have to prepare a poster from the paper and present it in
the Poster Session. The Poster Session separates itself from the Technical
Papers? Sessions by allowing authors the ability to get immediate, personal
feedback from conference attendees during the session as they present their
work. Posters also provide conference attendees an opportunity to see new
work in the field in a more relaxed setting.

3. (NEW!) Tools Papers (not exceeding 8 pages): These papers should describe
tools that complement research papers from two different perspectives: (i)
The tool has been used previously as part of a support pipeline (e.g., to
collect data, evaluate results, etc.); (ii) The tool implements a previously
proposed technique/approach. The submissions must fall under the topics of the
Foundations tracks and include a short video (Max. 5 minutes) describing the
main features of the presented tool. The link to the video should be included in
the paper abstract. Note that commercial products cannot be accepted. The tool
demo track is for promoting scientific contributions instead of promoting sales
of a tool currently being commercialized. Authors of accepted tool demo papers
will be invited to give a presentation and present the tool in the Hands-on
session. Both presentation and hands-on will be scheduled within the program.

Evaluation criteria: We look for papers that include: (i) Clear motivation
for the tool; (ii) The software engineering task/challenges the tool aims
to address; (iii) Discussion regarding similar tools; (iv) Description of
the tool features, envisioned users, and usage scenarios; (v) Results of
validation studies for the case of mature tools, or design of planned studies
if the tool is an early prototype.

Below, you will find details on the dates, the submission and evaluation
of papers, besides the important topics and organization committee of each
Foundations track.

IMPORTANT DATES
Abstract submission: December, 4th, 2017
Paper submission: December 11st, 2017
Notification to authors: February 5th, 2018
Camera-Ready: February 26th, 2018

SUBMISSIONS
All papers must be submitted through the EasyChair submission system at
https://easychair.org/conferences/, using PDF format only. Submissions must be
formatted according to the LNCS style. At least one author of accepted papers
must register by the camera-ready deadline. One registration corresponds to
only one paper.

EVALUATION PROCESS
Any paper which is not within the scope of the conference, or do not follow
the formatting guidelines will be desk-rejected without review. All other
submissions are going to be peer reviewed by at least three members of the
Program Committee.

All accepted papers will be published by the organization in the conference
proceedings that will be indexed in Scopus and DBLP.

The best paper of each track will receive an award certificate. We are also
working to publish the best papers in a special issue of an international
journal.

practitioners can present and discuss recent research results on a wide
range of topics related to Experimental Software Engineering. In addition,
the track encourages the exchange of ideas so as to understand the strengths
and weaknesses of software engineering technologies and methods from a strong
empirical viewpoint, including different kinds of empirical studies. Research
on empirical methods and the design and analysis of empirical studies are
also welcome. ESELAW is now an integral part of CIbSE as a whole.

- The evaluation and comparison of techniques and models (cost estimation,
  analysis and design methods, testing, etc.).
- Reports on benefits derived from using specific software technologies.
- The development of predictive models for software engineering.
- Experiences with research methods: measurement theory, experimental design,
  qualitative modeling, analysis approaches, grounded theory, protocol studies,
  families of experiments, etc.

  the software development of industrial experience in process improvement.
- Quality measurement.
- Mining software repositories.
- Process modeling and applications in industry.
- Systematic reviews and evidence-based software engineering.
- Simulation-based studies in software engineering.
- Education and training in experimental software engineering.
