ESEC/FSE workshops provide forums for small-group discussions on topics in software engineering research and practice. Workshops also provide opportunities for researchers to exchange and discuss scientific and engineering ideas at an early stage, before they have matured to warrant conference or journal publication. In this manner, an ESEC/FSE workshop serves as an incubator for a scientific community that forms and shares a particular research agenda.

Call for Workshop Proposals

ESEC/FSE 2023 is soliciting proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference. Workshops aim to provide opportunities for exchanging views, advancing ideas, and discussing preliminary results in various areas of software engineering research and applications. Note that workshops are not an alternative forum for presenting full research papers. If you would like to bring together a group of researchers on a topic you consider relevant and exciting, you should consider submitting a workshop proposal to ESEC/FSE. Workshops will be held over three days, two days preceding the three days of the main conference and one day after. Prospective workshop organizers are encouraged to contact the workshop chairs should any questions arise.

Important Dates

All dates are 23:59:59 AoE (UTC-12h).

  • Deadline for workshop proposals submission Friday Apr 14, 2023
  • Deadline for notification Monday April 24, 2023
  • Deadlines for workshop papers submissions are up to workshop chairs but please note that the camera ready deadline is August 24, 2023. We provide a suggested timeline for workshop paper submissions below.
  • Workshops are held during the two days before the main conference as well as the day after the main conference.

To align with the proceedings process, we suggest the following schedule for workshop paper submissions.

  • Workshop papers submission (suggested period) July 1 - July 27, 2023
  • Workshop papers notification August 10, 2023
  • Workshop papers camera-ready (hard) August 24, 2023

Please note that ESEC/FSE is currently planned as an in-person event. Except for emergencies, the conference is unable to support remote presentations (due to logistical A/V limitations).

Workshop Proposal Guidelines

Workshop proposals must be up to 4 pages in length and conform to the ESEC/FSE Format and Submission Guidelines (without the double blind restriction). Each proposal should contain the following information.

  • Contact details of the organizers, including the identification of the main contact.
  • A brief (max 200 words) abstract of the goals and format of the workshop intended for the ESEC/FSE 2023 web pages. The abstract should include the theme, goals, and topics of the workshop, as well as a motivation of its relevance and timeliness, including an account of the workshop’s history (if any).
  • The workshop format, including desired length (1 or 2 days), forms of participation supported (demo, position statement, panel discussion, working session, …) and plans for generating and stimulating discussion at the workshop.
  • State whether or not your workshop’s proceedings will appear in the ACM digital library. For a workshop paper to appear in the proceedings, at least one of its authors must register for the workshop.
  • The paper selection procedure, including the types of papers permitted (demos, short, long, position statements, and so on, together with page limits), the expected dates for submission and notification of acceptance, names of proposed and confirmed program committee members.
  • A short description of the workshop and a link to a detailed workshop web page to be used on the ESEC/FSE 2023 web page.
  • Publicity plans, including a substantiated assessment of the number of expected participants, as well as the participant solicitation and selection process. (Also indicate whether workshop attendance will be open or closed.)
  • A brief biography of each organizer, including past experience in workshop organization.
  • Ideally, a workshop proposal should consist of an up-to-two page description (to be potentially included in the conference proceedings, if accepted) and an appendix (up to two pages) containing additional material, if appropriate.
  • Please note that the workshop call for papers should contain the following notification: “As a published ACM author, you and your co-authors are subject to all ACM Publications Policies, including ACM’s new Publications Policy on Research Involving Human Participants and Subjects”.
