ESEC/FSE workshops provide forums for small-group discussions on topics in software engineering research and practice. Workshops also provide opportunities for researchers to exchange and discuss scientific and engineering ideas at an early stage, before they have matured to warrant conference or journal publication. In this manner, an ESEC/FSE workshop serves as an incubator for a scientific community that forms and shares a particular research agenda.

ESEC/FSE 2021 Workshops

Acronym Full Name Description Organizers
SEA4DQ 2022 2nd Workshop on Software Engineering and AI for Data Quality in Cyber-Physical Systems How can software engineering and artificial intelligence (AI) help manage and tame data quality issues in CPS/IoT? Emerging trends in software engineering need to take data quality management seriously as CPS/IoT are increasingly data-centric in their approach to acquiring and processing data along the edge-fog-cloud continuum. This workshop will provide researchers and practitioners a forum for exchanging ideas, experiences, understanding of the problems, visions for the future, and promising solutions to the problems in data quality in CPS/IoT. Sagar Sen; Phu Nguyen; Maria Chiara Magnanini; Mikel Armendia; Beatriz Bretones Cassoli; Nicolas Jourdan
MSR4P&S 2022 1st Workshop on Mining Software Repositories Applications for Privacy and Security MSR4P&S provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas, experiences, investigate problems, and propose promising solutions concerning the application of Mining Software Repositories (MSR) to investigate the different stages of privacy and security. The workshop topics cover a wide range of MSR applications for cybersecurity research, including empirical and mixed-method approaches, as well as datasets and tools. Melina Vidoni; Nicolás E. Díaz Ferreyra; Zadia Codabux
MaLTeSQuE 2022 Machine Learning Techniques for Software Quality Evaluation MaLTeSQuE provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss new ideas, trends and results concerning the application of machine learning methods for software engineering. The focus areas of the workshop are software quality assessment, practices that contribute towards quality assurance, the application of software engineering techniques to self-learning systems and quality assurance of machine learning techniques when applied to software systems. Maxime Cordy; Xiaofei Xie; Bowen Xu; Stamatia Bibi
EASEAI 2022 4th International Workshop on Education through Advanced Software Engineering and Artificial Intelligence EASEAI brings together researchers, teachers, and practitioners who use advanced software engineering tools and artificial intelligence techniques in the education field and through a transgenerational and transdisciplinary range of students to discuss the current state of the art and practices, and establish new future directions. Julie Henry; Upsorn Praphamontripong; Camelia Serban; Andreea Vescan
Residuals 2022 Characterizing and Modeling Residual Software Bugs Residual software bugs are bugs that escape quality assurance and trigger failures during operation. To summarize the state of the art/practice and open problems in this field, the workshop invites expert talks from the software engineering, fault tolerance, and security domains. Stefan Winter; Roberto Natella; Neeraj Suri; Domenico Cotroneo; Cristina Nita-Rotaru; Karthik Pattabiraman
Gamify 2022 International Workshop on Gamification of Software Development, Verification and Validation Gamify provides a forum for researchers, practitioners and industry partner to discuss and evaluate the potential of the application of Gamification to software development, verification and validation. Riccardo Coppola; Luca Ardito; Mirna Munoz; Maurizio Leotta
QP4SE 2022 Quantum Programming for Software Engineering QP4SE workshop allows researchers and practitioners to (i) present and discuss solutions, challenges, and trends in the field of quantum programming for software engineering and (ii) provide best practices for the development of new solutions, or improve the existing ones. The main focus topics of the workshop are quantum optimization for software engineering, quantum artificial intelligence/machine learning for software engineering, and industrial applications of quantum solutions to improve software engineering-related tasks. Fabiano Pecorelli; Vita Santa Barletta; Manuel A. Serrano
A-TEST 2022 13th Workshop on Automating Test Case Design, Selection and Evaluation A-TEST provides a venue for researchers and industry members alike to exchange and discuss trending views, ideas, state of the art, work in progress, and scientific results on automated test case design, selection and evaluation. Ákos Kiss; Mehrdad Saadatmand; Niels Doorn; Antony Bartlett; Beatriz Marín; Jeroen Pijpker

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

To align with the proceedings process, we suggest the following schedule.

  • Workshop papers submission (suggested period) July 1 - August 1, 2022
  • Workshop papers notification August 15, 2022
  • Workshop papers camera-ready (hard) September 9, 2022

Please note that ESEC/FSE is currently planned as a hybrid event.

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”.
