============================================================================

This is the CFP for the 29th IEEE International
Conference on Software Maintenance, ICSM 2013.

ICSM is the premiere international venue in software maintenance and
evolution, where participants from academia, government, and industry
meet and share ideas and experiences for solving critical software
maintenance problems. ICSM 2013 will be held in Eindhoven, The
Netherlands. 


================================
       TOPICS
================================
Topics of Interest include but are not limited to:

•  Software repository analysis and mining

•  Reverse engineering, re- engineering and migration
•  Software refactoring, restructuring and renovation
•  Software and system comprehension
•  Code cloning, code provenance, concept location and related research
•  Change and defect management
•  Evolution of non-code artefacts (e.g., requirements, design models, documentation, software architectures, business process models)
•  Maintenance-related testing (e.g., regression testing)
•  Maintenance and evolution processes
•  Software quality improvement
•  Software evolution for emerging paradigms
•  Human aspects of software evolution

================================
       TRACKS
================================


ICSM will have five tracks:

•   Research Track
•   ERA Track
•   Doctoral Symposium
•   Industry Track
•   Tool Demo Track


*Research Track*

Submissions for the research track should describe original and
significant work in the research or practice of software maintenance
and evolution. Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least three PC
members. Theoretical results, empirical research (such as case studies
and experiments) and experience reports are welcome. Papers must not
have been previously accepted for publication nor concurrently
submitted for review in another journal, book, conference or
workshop. 

Research papers must adhere to the IEEE CS Proceedings style
guidelines and are limited to 10 pages.  

Further details are available at:
http://icsm2013.tue.nl/CFP/index.html 


*ERA Track*

The goal of the Early Research Achievements (ERA) track is to provide
researchers and practitioners with a forum for presenting great,
promising ideas in early stages of research. These ideas do not
require a strong empirical evaluation! The 2013 ERA track aims to
provide constructive feedback to guide you from your initial idea and
limited evaluation towards a solid ICSM 2014 paper with strong
empirical underpinnings. The topics of interest for this track are the
same as for the main research track, i.e., all the topics in the
research and practice of software maintenance and evolution. Papers
submitted to the ERA track must not have been accepted previously for
publication or submitted for review to another conference, journal, or
book.

Submissions must be in English and conform to the IEEE
proceedings style. They must be four-page long, including all text,
references, appendices, and figures. 
Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of their originality,
importance of contribution, soundness, evaluation (if available),
quality and consistency of presentation, and appropriate comparison to
related work. 

Further details are available at:
http://icsm2013.tue.nl/CFP/index.html 


*Doctoral Symposium*

As with previous editions, ICSM 2013 will feature a double doctoral symposium:

Pre-doctoral: The first part is dedicated to PhD students in the midst
of their doctoral studies in the field of software maintenance, who
intend to finish their PhD within the next two years (2014-2015). This
symposium aims to provide PhD students with an opportunity to present
their ongoing work, to interact with other researchers in the field,
and to get constructive feedback from senior researchers. Participants
will discuss their goals, methods, and results at an early stage in
their research. 
For the pre-doctoral symposium the submission should not exceed 4
pages.
Details on the required content are available at:
http://icsm2013.tue.nl/CFP/index.html 

Post-doctoral: The second part is dedicated to researchers who have
delivered their PhD dissertations in the area of software maintenance
and evolution within the last 2 years (2011-2012). This symposium aims
to provide a forum for post-docs to present the highlights of their
work to the ICSM community. Moreover, participants will be asked to
reflect on the PhD process itself, and share some lessons learned with
PhD students as well as PhD advisors. 

For the post-doctoral symposium the submission should not exceed 6 pages.
Details on the required content are available at:
http://icsm2013.tue.nl/CFP/index.html 


*Industrial Track*

This track aims to foster mutually beneficial links between those
engaged in scientific research and practitioners working to improve
software maintenance practices. We are interested in results (both
good and bad), obstacles, and lessons learned. Experiences from
practitioners provide crucial input into future research directions
and allow others to learn from successes and failures. 

For the industry track, we invite submissions of state-of-the-art
practice and experience reports, survey reports from real-world
projects and industrial experiences, and evidence-based
identifications of unsolved research challenges associated to software
maintenance. If you apply in an industrial context a method, model or
tool, which you know was earlier presented at ICSM or other software
engineering conference, we also warmly encourage you to submit to this
track. 

Each submission should describe the problem addressed, the approach
used, the current state of the project, an evaluation of the benefits
or lessons learnt, and future developments. Submissions must be in
English and conform to the IEEE proceedings style. They must be
four-page long, including all text, references, appendices, and
figures.
