Call For Papers
We invite high-quality submissions describing original and unpublished results of theoretical, empirical, conceptual, and experimental software engineering research. We also welcome multi-disciplinary work at the interface between software engineering and other related topics, such as, but not restricted to, artificial intelligence, human computer interaction, programming languages, and systems engineering. Contributions should describe innovative and significant original research relevant to ESEC/FSE. Submissions of papers describing groundbreaking approaches to emerging problems will also be considered. Submissions that facilitate reproducibility by using available data sets or making the described tools publicly available are especially encouraged.

Papers submitted for consideration should not have been published elsewhere and should not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere during the duration of consideration. Specifically, authors are required to adhere to the ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism and the ACM Policy on Prior Publication and Simultaneous Submissions.

Topics of Interest

We are interested in submissions from both industry and academia on all topics related to software engineering. These include, but are not limited to:

    API usage and design
    Autonomic and adaptive systems

    Program analysis
    Program comprehension and visualization
    Refactoring, reengineering, and migration
    Release engineering and continuous deployment
    Requirements engineering
    Search based software engineering
    Security and privacy
    Service-oriented architectures and micro-services
    Software architecture
    Software economics
    Software engineering for cloud computing
    Software evolution and maintenance
    Software processes and project organization
    Software repository mining
    Software testing
    Variability management and software product lines
    Web-based systems

How to Submit

At the time of submission all papers must conform to the ESEC/FSE 2017 Format and Submission Guidelines, and must not exceed 10 pages for all text and figures plus 2 pages for references (abstract: 250 words max). All submissions must be in English and in PDF format. Submissions that do not comply with the above instructions will be desk rejected without review.

Each submission will be reviewed by three members of the Program Committee. Authors will have an opportunity to respond to reviews during a rebuttal period. The rebuttal phase will be followed by an online discussion, which will be followed by a program committee meeting. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of originality, importance of contribution, soundness, evaluation, quality of presentation and appropriate comparison to related work. The program committee as a whole will make final decisions about which submissions to accept for presentation at the conference.

ESEC/FSE 2017 will employ a lightweight double-blind review process. The papers submitted must not reveal the authors' identities in any way. Authors should leave out author names and affiliations from the body of their submission. They should also ensure that any citations to related work by themselves is written in third person, that is, “the prior work of XYZ” as opposed to “our prior work”. Authors having further questions on double blind reviewing are encouraged to contact the Program Chairs by email.

Author identities will be revealed to the program committee members during the online discussion period. The authors must make every effort to honor the double-blind review process. In case of questions, please contact the PC Chairs. Papers that do not comply to the double blind review process will be desk-rejected

Papers must be submitted electronically through the ESEC/FSE submission site available at

All publications are subject to the ACM Author Representations policy .
