29th Int. Conference on Software Engineering® 20 - 26 May 2007

Submission and Evaluation

How to Submit

Please read all of these instructions prior to submitting your paper.

Papers must be submitted electronically through Cyberchair. The deadline for research paper submission is 8 September 2006 23:59 SST (Apia-Samoa). This deadline is hard and non-negotiable.

Research papers should describe innovative and significant original research relevant to ICSE as described in the Call for Research Papers.

Papers submitted for consideration should not have been published elsewhere and should not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere during the duration of consideration. 

Technical papers must conform, at time of submission, to the ICSE 2007 Format and Submission Guidelines, and must not exceed 10 pages, including all text, references, appendices, and figures. All submissions must be in English.  Submissions must be in PDF format.

Submissions that do not comply with the foregoing instructions will be desk rejected without review.

Note: camera-ready copy will utilize the same format and length limits required of submissions, and thus, your submission should reflect the form that you anticipate your camera-ready copy will take.

Review and Evaluation Criteria

Each submission will be reviewed by at least two members of the Program Committee. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of originality, importance of contribution, soundness, evaluation, quality of presentation, and appropriate comparison to related work. The program committee as a whole will make final decisions about which submissions to accept for presentation at the conference.


Upon notification of acceptance, all authors of accepted papers will be asked to complete an IEEE Copyright form and will receive further instructions for preparing their camera ready versions. At least one author of the paper is expected to present the results at the ICSE 2007 conference.
