September 23-29, 2018

RESEARCH TRACK (https://icsme2018.github.io/cfp/ResearchTrackCFP.html)
IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance and Evolution (ICSME)
is the premier forum for researchers and practitioners to present and
discuss the most recent innovations, trends, experiences, and challenges in
software maintenance and evolution.

We invite high quality submissions describing significant, original, and
unpublished results related to but not limited to any of the following
software maintenance and evolution topics (in alphabetical order):
- Change and defect management
- Code cloning and provenance
- Concept and feature location
- Continuous integration/deployment
- Empirical studies of software maintenance and evolution
- Evolution of non-code artefacts
- Human aspects of software maintenance and evolution
- Maintenance and evolution of model-based methods
- Maintenance and evolution processes
- Maintenance and evolution of mobile apps
- Maintenance versus release process
- Mining software repositories
- Productivity of software engineers
- Release engineering
- Reverse engineering and re-engineering
- Run-time evolution and dynamic configuration
- Service oriented and cloud computing
- Software and system comprehension
- Software migration and renovation
- Software quality assessment
- Software refactoring and restructuring
- Software testing

ICSME welcomes innovative ideas that are timely, well presented and
evaluated. All submissions must position themselves within the existing
literature, describe the relevance of the results to specific software
engineering goals, and include a clear motivation and presentation of the

To establish a consistent set of expectations in the review process, the
authors are asked, as part of the online submission process, to identify
their papers with one or more of the following categories:
- Analytical
- Empirical
- Technological
- Methodological
- Perspectives

All papers should be full papers, and papers may belong to more than one
category. Note that papers from any research area can fall into any of
these categories, as the categories are constructed surrounding
methodological approaches, not research topics (e.g., one could write an
analytical paper on a new analysis technique, an empirical paper that
compares a broad range of such techniques, a technological paper that makes
an analysis technique practically feasible and available, or a perspectives
paper that reviews the state of the art and lays out a roadmap of analysis
techniques for the future).
