Research Track

Research papers should describe original and significant work in the research and practice of software maintenance and evolution. Empirical studies such as case studies, experiments and experience reports are welcome. Papers must not have been previously accepted for publication nor concurrently submitted for review in another journal, book or conference/workshop. Research papers must be in IEEE CS Proceedings style and are limited to 10 pages. Accepted papers will be published in proceedings included in the IEEE Computer Society digital library.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  1. Reverse engineering and re-engineering
  2. Program and system comprehension
  3. Static and dynamic analysis
  4. Concept, feature and aspect location
  5. Clone, similarity and code provenance
  6. Software migration and renovation
  7. Mining software repositories
  8. Change and defect management
  9. Maintenance and evolution processes
  10. Maintenance and reengineering of business models
  11. Run-time evolution and update
  12. Empirical studies in software maintenance and evolution
  13. Testing, only in relation to maintenance (i.e., regression testing)

Authors of selected papers from the research track will be invited to submit extended versions of their work to a special issue of the Empirical Software Engineering (EMSE) journal edited by Springer.

Papers must be submitted electronically through EasyChair before the submission deadline.
