ESEC/FSE'05 - Call for Papers and Proposals
10th  European  Software  Engineering  Conference / 13th  ACM  SIGSOFT
Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering

September 5-9, 2005 - Lisbon, Portugal
Find enclosed the Call for Research Papers, Doctoral Symposium, Formal
Research Demos, Tutorial proposals, and Workshop proposals.

ESEC/FSE  is  an   internationally  renowned  forum  for  researchers,
practitioners, and  educators to present  and discuss the  most recent
innovations,  trends,  experiences, and  challenges  in  the field  of
software engineering.

Held bi-yearly,  ESEC/FSE 2005  brings together experts  from academia
and industry  to exchange  the latest research  results, state  of the
art, and state of the practice.

The  conference will offer  an exciting  program of  events, including
keynote talks by leaders  in the field, technical paper presentations,
workshops,  tutorials, research  tool demonstrations,  and  a doctoral
symposium on innovative research in software engineering.



March 4, 2005  - Workshop proposals
April 4, 2005  - Research papers
April 25, 2005 - Tutorial proposals, Research Demos
May 12, 2005   - Doctoral Symposium



Technical Papers must clearly  present an original contribution to the
state of  the art.  Theoretical  papers should show how  their results
relate  to  software  engineering  practice.  Experience  papers  must
present "lessons  learned" of  clear interest and  benefit to  a broad

All papers should  be original work, limited to  10 proceedings pages.
Papers must not have been previously published nor have been submitted
to,  or be  in consideration  for, any  journal, book,  conference, or

Paper submission deadline:  April 04, 2005



We  invite  proposals for  full-day  (6  hour)  or half-day  (3  hour)
tutorials  on topics  related to  ESEC/FSE 2005.  Tutorial may  take a
variety  of   forms,  and  cover  practical   problems,  surveys,  and
theoretical  issues.  Participants   at  the  tutorials  will  include
researchers and students, software practitioners, and managers.

The  tutorial  proposal  should  include a  title,  proposers  contact
information,  tutorial   aims  and  objectives,   duration  (full-  or
half-day),  purpose   and  scope,  and  summary  of   material  to  be
covered.  Submissions  must be  no  longer than  10  pages  in PDF.  A
proposal should include a description of the theme of the tutorial and
a justification  of its  relevance for ESEC/FSE  2005. It  should also
include information about the duration, scope, key learning objectives
for the participants, intended audience, and required background.

Proposal submission deadline:   April 25, 2005



ESEC/FSE  2005   invites  proposals  for  workshops  to   be  held  in
conjunction with  the main conference.  Workshops will be held  on the
two days  before the conference. Prospective  organizers are requested
to  follow the  guidelines below  and  are encouraged  to contact  the
workshop  chair  should any  questions  arise.  Workshops  are not  an
alternative  forum for  presenting full  research papers,  and usually
restrict themselves to submission of position papers only.

Proposal submission deadline: March 4, 2005



We  solicit  proposals for  research  tool  demonstrations related  to
software engineering. Tools can  range from mature prototypes to fully
developed     products     that     are     being     prepared     for
commercialisation. Commercial products and products that are currently
being  commercialised  cannot  be  accepted.  The  demonstrations  are
intended  to  highlight  scientific  contributions,  and  consequently
should not be sales pitches.

Proposal submission deadline: April 25, 2005



The  Doctoral Symposium of  ESEC/FSE aims  to create  a forum  for PhD
students  working on  foundations,  techniques, methods  and tools  in
software engineering. It will provide participants with an opportunity
to present  and to discuss  their research with senior  researchers of
the  software engineering  community  in a  constructive and  friendly

The  Doctoral Symposium  is intended  for  students who  have not  yet
completed their  dissertation research and  do not expect to  write up
their dissertation before the conference.

Proposal submission deadline: May 12, 2005
