  • Research papers or experience reports (up to 8 pages): present concrete research results or industrial/academic experiences.
  • Position papers (up to 4 pages): preliminary work or new ideas.

Language: Submissions in English are strongly encouraged, although papers can also be written in Portuguese or Spanish.

Format: submissions must be in PDF format, and must follow the IEEE format. All papers must be submitted using the JEMS conference system (link to be published). Theoretical papers must emphasize practical contribution to Software Engineering. Experimental papers must describe the method used to interpret the qualitative and quantitative results. Selected research papers will be presented during the technical sessions and selected position papers will be presented in the poster exhibition. All accepted papers must have at least one of its authors registered for the workshop to present it. The submissions will be reviewed by at least 2 reviewers.

The submissions must be original, unpublished, and not submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere.

It is important to point out that the program committee may accept a paper as "position paper" originally submitted as a research paper, and authors of such submissions will have the choice of accepting this decision and modifying their manuscript accordingly, or retracting the submission. The papers and a summary of the discussions will be compiled into a technical report that will be posted on the workshop's website and also published in CD-ROM. If you any doubts about the submission process, please contact the workshop organizers.
