Call for ERA papers

The Early Research Achievements (ERA) track invites submissions of papers that present current work-in-progress and be based on either research, practice or experience. Papers in the ERA track do not always need to report such complete results as full conference papers and so can be a good way to fast track new technical work.

The ERA track follows the general topics specified in the technical research track. All accepted papers will be published in the APSEC 2018 conference proceedings. For your paper to be published in the APSEC 2018 conference proceedings, at least one of the authors of the paper must register for the conference and confirm that she/he will present the paper in person at the conference venue.

Evaluation Criteria

ERA papers must not be more than 5 pages. All paper submissions are rigorously reviewed by at least three reviewers and evaluated based on originality, technical quality, and relevance to software engineering concepts and technologies. All submissions must describe unpublished work that is not currently submitted for publication elsewhere – any violation of this rule will result in the desk reject (without any reviews).

All submissions must be in English, and must use the IEEE dual column conference template with 10pt font and not exceed the page limit (including all figures, references and appendices). Submissions must be submitted electronically in PDF before the due date via EasyChair.

The Chairs reserve the right to reject submissions (without reviews) that are not in compliance or out of scope for the conference. All accepted papers will be submitted to the IEEE-CS Digital Library.
