Call for Workshop Proposals

ESEC/FSE 2022 is soliciting proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference. Workshops aim to provide opportunities for exchanging views, advancing ideas, and discussing preliminary results in various areas of software engineering research and applications. Note that workshops are not an alternative forum for presenting full research papers. If you would like to bring together a group of researchers on a topic you consider relevant and exciting, you should consider submitting a workshop proposal to ESEC/FSE. Workshops will be held after the main conference. Prospective workshop organizers are encouraged to contact the workshop chairs should any questions arise.

Important Dates

All dates are 23:59:59 AoE (UTC-12h).

  • Deadline for workshop proposals submission Apr 22, 2022
  • Deadline for notification May 4, 2022
  • Deadlines for workshop papers submissions are up to workshop chairs
  • Workshops are held after the main conference on November 17,18

Workshop Proposal Guidelines

Workshop proposals must be up to 4 pages in length and conform to the ACM Conference Format. Authors should use the official “ACM Primary Article Template”, as can be obtained from the ACM Proceedings Template page. LaTeX users should use the sigconf option. Each proposal should contain the following information.

  • Contact details of the organizers, including the identification of the main contact.
  • A brief (max 200 words) abstract of the goals and format of the workshop intended for the ESEC/FSE 2022 web pages. The abstract should include the theme, goals, and topics of the workshop, as well as a motivation of its relevance and timeliness, including an account of the workshop’s history (if any).
  • The workshop format, including desired length (1 or 2 days), forms of participation supported (demo, position statement, panel discussion, working session, …) and plans for generating and stimulating discussion at the workshop. Specify if the workshop intends to publish its proceedings in the ACM digital library (under negotiation for all ESEC/FSE 2022 workshops).
  • The paper selection procedure, including the types of papers permitted (demos, short, long, position statements, and so on, together with page limits), the expected dates for submission and notification of acceptance, names of proposed and confirmed program committee members.
  • A short description of the workshop and a link to a detailed workshop web page to be used on the ESEC/FSE 2022 web page.
  • Publicity plans, including a substantiated assessment of the number of expected participants, as well as the participant solicitation and selection process. (Also indicate whether workshop attendance will be open or closed.)
  • A brief biography of each organizer, including past experience in workshop organization.
  • Whether there is a possibility for the workshop to take place physically in Singapore. A physical workshop would mean that at least one workshop chair would be willing and find it likely to be able to travel to Singapore, if travel restrictions allow it. This information is required for planning purposes only.
  • Ideally, a workshop proposal should consist of an up-to-two page description (to be potentially included in the conference proceedings, if accepted) and an appendix (up to two pages) containing additional material, if appropriate.
  • Please note that the workshop call for papers should contain the following notification: “As a published ACM author, you and your co-authors are subject to all ACM Publications Policies, including ACM’s new Publications Policy on Research Involving Human Participants and Subjects”.

Submission will be via hotcrp. (Submission site to be added)
