The Short Paper and Work-in-Progress Track provides an opportunity for sharing valuable ideas, eliciting useful feedback on early-stage work, and fostering discussions and collaborations among researchers interested in the broad area of Empirical Software Engineering.
The scope of research topics of this track is the same as for the main conference. We encourage contributions presenting thought-provoking ideas and promising (preliminary) results in realizing them. We also encourage researchers and practitioners to submit Work-in-Progress to discuss ongoing research, practical experience, challenges or issues related to empirical software engineering.
Papers submitted to this track should not exceed 6 pages in length and should not have been submitted for review or published elsewhere. All submissions must be made through the EasyChair submission system. Submitted papers must be written in English and formatted according to the ACM SIG Proceedings templates. Only PDF format is acceptable for submissions.
All accepted submissions will be presented in the corresponding slots of the main conference. At least one author of an accepted paper must register by the camera-ready deadline.
