Research and Experience Papers
Papers should present significant contributions to the
exploration, study, use, and understanding of software
engineering education and training. Papers may describe a
classroom experience, teaching technique, curricular initiative,
or educational research project.
Please read the
CSEE&T Researchers Guide prior to preparing your paper. The paper size is limited
to 8 pages, formatted according to IEEE 6" x 9" specifications. See the
IEEE formatting requirements
and the official directory at the IEEE Computer Society site which contains other
formatting details, including a LaTeX style file, is available
Special Journal Issues
Outstanding research and experience
papers will be selected for a special issue of the
Journal of Systems and Software. Priority will be given to those papers
that will be directly addressing the conference theme.
Chair: David Janzen
Research and experience papers that do not fully meet the
criteria for acceptance as a regular paper may be submitted as a short paper.
For example, a paper that describes a promising idea that is at an early
stage but does not yet include adequate results to validate
the idea or a paper that describes an interesting
observation or experience but does not lend itself to a full
discussion would be considered a short paper.
Teaching Industrial Strength Software Engineering
This session addresses the issues of decreasing software engineering enrolments and industry’s increasing needs for qualified software engineers.
Watts Humphrey, the session chairman opens the program with a brief overview of the session agenda. Bob Musson from Microsoft then reviews industry’s
needs for software engineering graduates. More info
Dr. Nancy R. Mead Track
Chairs: Dan Port, Don Bagert
Dr. Nancy Mead has contributed to the software engineering
education and training in many ways. She is in fact
credited with the growth and popularity of CSEE&T
during the past 10 years. In order to recognize her
contributions, a special track is devoted to her. Papers
reflecting her devotions, her contributions, and her
industry-academic collaborative efforts are invited.
Chair: Vasudeva Varma
The best panels offer an engaging, entertaining and informative
examination of a timely topic from a variety of viewpoints.
A panel submission should include the following:
- A description, no longer than 500 words, of the proposed panel
discussion, including a clear description of the discussion's
topic and of how it meets the needs of the CSEE&T audience.
- Biographies and position statements (no more than 500 words)
of each of the panelists.
- A biography of the proposed moderator.
Chair: Jeff Carver
The conference will include workshops of varying length,
designed to enable groups of participants to exchange
experiences and opinions on a relevant topic. Workshop
organizers should have a strategy for managing attendance
based on objective criteria, for example through a short
refereed position paper. Other approaches are permitted as
long as they are clearly specified in the workshop's call for
participation. Workshop organizers are responsible for authoring
a call for participation and for advertising their workshops in
appropriate places to attract attendees. A workshop proposal
be no more than two pages in length and should include the
- The workshop's main theme and goals
- A list of members of the organizing committee
- The expected number of participants
- The preparation required of participants
- Workshop activities and format. Interactive format is strongly encouraged.
Chair: Joseph Chao
Tutorials will normally be three or six hours in
length. Proposals should include a detailed outline of topics,
and a discussion of how the tutorial will be presented.
Course Material Contributions
Chair: Ann Sobel
These will show approaches to teaching particular courses or
topics within the SE curriculum, for which the authors have
developed publicly-available teaching resources. Teaching
resources may include PowerPoint slides, software, case
studies or similar material. Contributors must submit a
two-page summary of the material for publication in the
conference proceedings and the materials themselves, all
in one zip file. Contributions will be reviewed; selected
contributions will appear in the proceedings. Authors will
give a short presentation of the material at the conference.
All accepted papers will be published in an IEEE proceedings.
