Call for Papers: Early Research Achievements Track

The ERA (Early Research Achievements) track provides a forum for discussion of ongoing work. As such, this track focuses more on discussing new ideas than presenting complete results.

The topics of this track encompass all topics of the Technical Track and SEIP (Software Engineering in Practice).

Presentation and publication

The APSEC 2023 ERA track invites two kinds of submissions:

Regular (Oral) Papers

A regular paper, to be presented orally, must not exceed 5 pages for the main text, including appendices, figures, tables, and references. Authors of accepted regular papers will be invited to give a talk on the paper.

Short Papers

A short paper must not exceed 2 pages for the main text, including appendices, figures, tables, and references. Authors of accepted short papers will be invited to present a poster. A submission longer than 2 pages will be considered to be a regular (oral) paper submission and will be evaluated accordingly.

Evaluation Criteria

Submissions will be evaluated by at least three program committee members. The evaluation will mainly focus on the novelty, importance to the field, proper use of research methods, and presentation of the submissions. A submission must not have been previously published, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Submission Instructions

Papers must be submitted electronically through the ERA Track submission site. All submissions must be written in English and must be in PDF format, use A4 paper size, and conform to the IEEE Conference Proceedings Formatting Guidelines (title in 24pt font and full text in 10pt font, LaTeX users must use \documentclass[10pt, conference]{IEEEtran} without including the compsoc or compsocconf option). Also, papers must comply with the IEEE Policy on Authorship.

Double-Blind Submission Guidelines

The APSEC 2023 ERA track will adopt a double-blind review process. Submissions should not disclose the identity of the authors to comply with the double-anonymous review process. For more information, please check these instructions.

Important Dates

  • Submission: September 1, 2023 (AoE)
  • Notification: October 6, 2023
  • Camera Ready: October 20, 2023

Accepted Papers and Attendance Expectation

All accepted papers will be submitted to the CS Digital Library as the APSEC 2023 conference proceedings. The maximum page limit remains the same (5 pages for a regular (oral) paper and 2 pages for a short paper).

After acceptance, the list of paper authors cannot be changed under any circumstances; that is, the list of authors on camera-ready papers must be identical to those on submitted papers. After acceptance, paper titles cannot be changed except by permission of the Program Co-Chairs, and only then when referees recommend a change for clarity or accuracy with paper content.

If a submission is accepted, at least one author of the paper is required to register for APSEC 2023 and present the paper in person at the conference location (online presentation will not be allowed). If an accepted paper is not presented, the paper will be removed from the proceedings.
