Call For Papers and Workshops

Research Track

We invite high quality submissions describing original and unpublished results of theoretical, empirical, conceptual, and experimental software engineering research. We solicit submissions relating to all aspects of software engineering.

New Ideas Track

The FSE 2012 New Ideas track provides researchers with a forum to promote new and original research projects, to seek feedback on novel directions in a research program, and to discover opportunities for new research collaborations. Submissions to the New Ideas track should describe research in progress.

Research Tool Demonstration Track

The Research Tool Demonstration track provides a forum for conference participants to use presentations, live demonstrations, and posters to learn about research tools from the software engineering community. Tool demonstrations are expected to present implementation of tools for novel and innovative software engineering approaches, algorithms, techniques, methods, and processes.


Workshops aim to provide opportunities for exchanging views, advancing ideas, and discussing preliminary results in various areas of software engineering research and applications. Workshops are not an alternative forum for presenting full research papers.
