This year, we would like to see more industry participation at ASWEC. However, we believe that the motivation, reward system, and ability to get funding for academics and industry people are very different. For these reasons, we have decided to organise two separate paper tracks, which we have called "Research Papers" and "Industry Experience Reports". They have separate deadlines, separate program committees, separate review procedures, and separate proceedings (research papers will be published by IEEE, industry experience reports on a CD-Rom)
Authors are invited to submit papers describing original research in all areas of software engineering. Papers describing theoretical or empirical research, new techniques and tools, and in-depth case studies or experience reports are all welcome. Submissions should be original and should not have been published previously or be under consideration for publication.
Paper submissions will be peer reviewed and evaluated on originality, technical quality and relevance to the field of software engineering. As in previous years, the ASWEC proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press and one of the authors of each accepted paper must register as a delegate and present the paper at the conference.
All submissions must be in English; must be prepared in IEEE format (formatting instructions for 8.5x11in papers at http://www.computer.org/cspress/instruct.htm); and must not exceed 10 pages in length, including figures and references. Submission of papers will be carried out electronically via the Web. A separate, one-page abstract must be submitted two weeks before the full paper. Further instructions and guidelines will be available from the conference web page
Industry experience reports should describe practical experiences in the area of software engineering that are of interest to other practitioners. Submissions should not have been published previously or be under consideration for publication.
The initial submission consists of an extended abstract of 1-2 pages. These abstracts will be reviewed by a panel of industry experts and will be evaluated on the significance of the contribution, the clarity of the presentation and the adaptability of the concepts. The final submission can be in the form of a paper or presentation, and these will be distributed on a CD at the conference. One of the authors of each accepted paper must register as a delegate and present the paper at the conference. Further instructions and guidelines will be available from the conference web page
