The ACM Special Interest Group on Software Engineering provides a forum for computing professionals from industry, government and academia to examine principles, practices, and new research results in software engineering.

Policy on Reproducibility

Please review ACM's policy on research artifact review and badging. The policy aims to promote the integrity of the research ecosystem by increasing the likelihood that results can be independently replicated and reproduced.
