  CALL FOR PAPERS (download pdf)


The ISEC conference is planned as the main yearly conference of the newly created Special Interest Group on Software Engineering, SIGSE under the umbrella of the Computer Society of India, CSI. The First ISEC will be held in Hyderabad, an important IT destination in India. ISEC will bring together researchers and practitioners from across the world to share the results of their work. We invite technical papers describing original and unpublished results of conceptual, empirical, and experimental software engineering research. Papers describing Industry Experience are especially welcome. Our goal is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry to meet and share cutting-edge advancements in the field of software engineering. All submissions should clearly identify their contribution to the state of the art and their potential usefulness. Work that has appeared elsewhere (in some conference or journal) cannot be submitted for ISEC. Work that is currently under consideration elsewhere (a conference or a journal) also cannot be submitted. Submissions are invited broadly in all aspects of software engineering, including but not limited to, the following:

- Requirements Engineering

- Testing and Static Analysis

- Empirical Software Engineering and Metrics

- Specification and Verification

- Software Performance Engineering

- Model driven software engineering

- Software Architecture and Design

- Tools and Environments

- Development Paradigms and Processes

- Maintenance and Evolution

- People issues in Software Engineering

- Quality Management

- Component Based Software Engineering

- Object-Oriented Technology

- Service oriented architecture and web services

- Distributed software development

- Case Studies and Industrial Experience

- Software as a Service

In cooperation with ACM SIGSOFT, some of the best papers from the flagship conferences that SIGSOFT sponsors - FSE (Symposium on Foundations of Software Engineering), and ICSE (International Conference on Software Engineering), will be presented as keynotes/invited papers in ISEC.
