Research Highlights

Starting in 2020, SIGSOFT is selecting papers from its sponsored conferences that show recent, significant, and exciting results that are also of general interest to the computer science research community. These papers, called SIGSOFT Research Highlights, are also recommended for consideration for the Research Highlights section of the Communications of the ACM.

Nomination Process

The committee considers nominated papers from two sources:

  • Conference Organizers: The chair of the SIGSOFT Research Highlights Committee will solicit nominations from the program chairs of SIGSOFT-sponsored conferences.
  • Community: Any SIGSOFT member may nominate a paper appearing in a SIGSOFT conference, provided they do not have a conflict of interest.

To nominate a paper, please fill in the nomination form.

By submitting a nomination statement, nominators authorize the SIGSOFT Research Highlights Committee to reuse all or a portion of the statement for the purpose of nominating the paper further as a CACM Research Highlight, if applicable.
