Call for Papers

The IEEE/ACM Automated Software Engineering (ASE) Conference series is the premier research forum for automated software engineering. Each year, it brings together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss foundations, techniques, and tools for automating the analysis, design, implementation, testing, and maintenance of large software systems. ASE 2017 invites high quality contributions describing significant, original, and unpublished results. Solicited topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Automated reasoning techniques
  • Component-based service-oriented systems
  • Cloud computing
  • Computer-supported cooperative work
  • Configuration management
  • Data mining for software engineering
  • Domain modeling and meta-modeling
  • Empirical software engineering
  • Human-computer interaction
  • Knowledge acquisition and management
  • Mobile app development
  • Maintenance and evolution
  • Model-driven development
  • Program synthesis & transformations, automated defect repair
  • Program comprehension
  • Reverse engineering and re-engineering
  • Recommender systems for software engineering
  • Requirements engineering
  • Specification languages
  • Software analysis
  • Software architecture and design
  • Software product line engineering
  • Software visualization
  • Software security and trust; data privacy
  • Testing, verification, and validation

Three categories of submissions are solicited:

  • Technical Research Papers should describe innovative research in automating software development activities or automated support to users engaged in such activities. They should describe a novel contribution to the field and should carefully support claims of novelty with citations to the relevant literature. Where a submission builds upon previous work of the author(s), the novelty of the new contribution must be clearly described with respect to the previous work. Papers should also clearly discuss how the results were validated.
  • Experience Papers should describe a significant experience in applying automated software engineering technology and should carefully identify and discuss important lessons learned, so that other researchers and/or practitioners can benefit from the experience. Of special interest are experience papers that report on industrial applications of automated software engineering.
  • New Ideas Papers should describe novel research directions in automating software development activities or automated support to users engaged in such activities. New ideas submissions are intended to describe well-defined research ideas that are at an early stage of investigation and may not be fully validated.
Submission

Papers must be submitted electronically through the ASE 2017 submission site: http://cyberchairpro.borbala.net/asepapers/submit.

All submissions must come in PDF format and conform, at time of submission, to the IEEE Conference Proceedings Formatting Guidelines (title in 24pt font and full text in 10pt font, LaTEX users must use \documentclass[10pt,conference]{IEEEtran} without including the compsoc or compsocconf option.

Papers submitted to ASE 2017 must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere when being considered for ASE 2017.

Technical Research Papers and Experience Papers must not exceed 10 pages (including figures and appendices) plus up to 2 pages that contain ONLY references. New Ideas Papers must not exceed 6 pages (including figures, appendices AND references).

Important note: ASE 2017 will pursue a double-blind review process. For details see Instructions for Authors. All submissions must be in English.

Submissions that do not adhere to these limits or that violate the formatting guidelines will be desk-rejected without review.
