ICSE is the premier forum for presenting and discussing the most recent and significant technical research contributions in the field of Software Engineering. We invite high quality submissions of technical research papers describing original and unpublished results of software engineering research. We welcome submissions addressing topics across the full spectrum of Software Engineering.

Each paper submitted to the Technical Track will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Soundness: How well the paper’s contributions are supported by rigorous application of appropriate research methods,
  • Significance: The extent to which the paper’s contributions are novel, original, and important, with respect to the existing body of knowledge,
  • Verifiability: Whether the paper includes sufficient information to support independent verification or replication of the paper’s claimed contributions,
  • Presentation: Whether the paper’s quality of writing meets the high standards of ICSE, including clear descriptions and explanations, adequate use of the English language, absence of major ambiguity, clearly readable figures and tables, and adherence to the formatting instructions provided below.

How to Submit

A Technical Track submission must not exceed 10 pages, including all text, figures, tables, and appendices; two additional pages containing only references are permitted. It must conform to the IEEE Conference Proceedings Formatting Guidelines (title in 24pt font and full text in 10pt type, LaTEX users must use \documentclass[10pt,conference]{IEEEtran} without including the compsoc or compsocconf option).

The submission must also comply with the ACM plagiarism policy and procedures. In particular, it must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review elsewhere while under review for ICSE. The submission must also comply with the IEEE Policy on Authorship.

Lastly, the ICSE 2019 Technical Track will employ a double-blind review process. Thus, no submission may reveal its authors’ identities. The authors must make every effort to honor the double-blind review process. In particular, the authors’ names must be omitted from the submission and references to their prior work should be in the third person. Further advice, guidance and explanation about the double-blind review process can be found in the Q&A page.

Submissions to the Technical Track that meet the above requirements can be made via the Technical Track submission site by the submission deadline.

Any submission that does not comply with above requirements may be rejected by the Technical Track PC Chairs without further review.

If a submission is accepted, at least one author of the paper is required to attend the conference and present the paper in person. In addition, the authors will be invited to bring a poster summarizing their contributions to stimulate discussion after their presentations, and will be invited to submit artifacts related to the paper; the latter will be evaluated by the Artifact Evaluation Committee.
