We are soliciting three types of papers:

  • Long papers (10 pages for the main text, inclusive of figures, tables, appendices, etc.; references may be included on up to 2 additional pages). Long papers should clearly describe innovative and original research or explain how existing techniques have been applied to real-world examples.
  • Position papers for new ideas (6 pages + 1 reference). Position papers should describe novel and promising ideas and/or techniques that may not be fully validated.
  • Artifact papers (6 pages + 1 reference). Artifact papers must describe why and how the accompanying artifact may be useful for the broader community. Please see Call for Artifacts for more details.

All submitted papers and artifacts will be reviewed by at least three program committee members. Papers must not have been previously published or concurrently submitted elsewhere. The accepted papers will appear in the symposium proceedings that will be published in the ACM and IEEE digital libraries. Papers must conform to ACM formatting guidelines (see ICSE 2016 style guidelines), and must be submitted in PDF form via EasyChair (
