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 Cyberchair. The deadline for software engineering education paper submission is 6 October 2006 23:59 SST (Apia-Samoa).

Education papers should describe original and unpublished results relevant to ICSE as described in the Call for Software Engineering Education Papers.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. 

Education papers must conform, at time of submission, to the ICSE 2007 Format and Submission Guidelines, and must not exceed 10 pages (for long papers) or 4 pages (for short papers), 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 three members of the Program Committee. The program committee as a whole will make final decisions about which submissions to accept for presentation at the conference. Standard review criteria will be used, including the innovative nature of the ideas and/or useful data that improves our knowledge of software engineering education, focus and writing style, and the use of proper evaluatory methods. As applicable, papers should be based on sound analysis, justify their claims using empirical data, build upon the work of others through appropriate references, present details of experiment design, discuss threats to validity, etc.


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.
