Technical papers should describe innovative and significant work in the research and practice of software engineering. Papers are collected in an archival, refereed conference proceedings, published by IEEE/ACM, whose literature is cited and read by researchers and practitioners worldwide.


The software engineering community consists of researchers and practitioners from many different disciplines and intellectual traditions. Technical papers report on a full range of topics relevant to this community, including software engineering principles, theories, techniques, tools, and empirical evaluations.

There is a separate track for case study reports.
