Call For Papers
The International Conference on Program Comprehension (ICPC) is the premier venue for work in the area of software program comprehension. It encompasses both human activities for comprehending the software and technologies for supporting such comprehension.

The research track provides a quality forum for researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, and government to present and discuss new results in program comprehension. Topics of interest for all tracks include but are not limited to:

    Tool support for program comprehension;
    Novel visualization techniques and interfaces to support program comprehension, including searching, browsing and analyzing;
    Novel text summarisation techniques and interfaces to support program comprehension, including searching, browsing and analyzing;
    Cognitive theories for program comprehension, including experiments, empirical studies, and case studies;
    Collaborative software engineering practices for program comprehension;
    Individual, collaborative, distributed, and global program comprehension;
    Comprehension of specific types of software systems, such as open/closed source, mobile applications, spreadsheets, web-based systems, legacy systems, product lines, libraries, multi-threaded applications, and systems of systems;
    Comprehension in the context of diverse software process models and specific lifecycle activities, such as: maintenance, evolution, re-engineering, migration, security, auditing, and testing;
    Comprehension of software artifacts ranging from requirements documents to test cases and crash logs; from API documentation to models, meta-models and model transformation; and from Stack Overflow questions & answers to GitHub code review messages - all artifacts software developer encounters when creating or evolving software.
    Empirical evaluations of program comprehension tools, techniques, and approaches;
    Human aspects in program comprehension;
    Comprehension and legal issues, such as due diligence, intellectual property, reverse engineering, and litigation;
    Issues and case studies in the transfer of program comprehension technology to industry.

Technical Research Track papers accepted for presentation at ICPC 2021 will be invited to be revised and extended for consideration in a top journal in the field of software engineering.
