We solicit two types of submissions: regular papers and position papers.

  • Regular papers should describe original and significant results of theoretical, empirical, conceptual, or experimental research or of experience from industrial practice. Reflecting the practical emphasis of ISARCS, papers showcasing applications along with a sound conceptual contribution are welcome. Regular papers are limited to 10 pages.
  • Position papers describe novel ideas or innovative proposals whose aim is to stimulate discussion related to experiences and ideas, rather than to present mature results. Position papers are limited to 6 pages.

All accepted contributions will be published in the ACM digital library. Papers should respect the standard ACM format for conference proceedings. Manuscripts must be submitted through the Easychair submission system.

All contributions will be subject to a rigorous selection process by the international Program Committee, with an emphasis on originality, usefulness, practicality and overall quality. Papers must not have been previously published or be currently submitted elsewhere. If accepted, the paper must be personally presented at the ISARCS 2013 conference by one of the authors in order to appear in the proceedings.

The best contribution of the conference will receive the ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Award, given by the ACM Special Interest Group on Software Engineering.
