ICSE 2015 call for contributions to

JSEET - Joint Software Engineering Education and Training

ICSE 2015 will host a new Joint Program of the ICSE Software Engineering Education and Training Track (SEET) and the Conference on Software Engineering Education and Training (CSEE&T), merging into a powerful synergy contributions and participations from both ICSE and CSEE&T communities.

Theme: "Software Engineering Education and Training: System Thinking and System Scale"

Aims and Scope

The emergence of software engineering as a new term in the discipline of Computer Science / Computing / Informatics has created significant challenges for educators. Embracing this new concept requires a transition from a discipline of lone wolves and artistic heroes to a discipline of engineers focusing on product development in a planned process under constrained time, budget, and other resources but leading to a predictable quality. Some of the issues involved could be taught well in classrooms. For others, even project-based instruction provides only a weak proxy for training and learning while on the job. Team issues notably show a very different face in educational settings than in the field.

The area of software has been continuously expanding, and today, the software development concerns are not only related to pure software matters, such as software architecture, design, implementation and testing, but also to other systems and the environment in which the software is performing. Questions of safety, security, sustainability, usability and particularly scalability are now just as important as questions relating to the functional requirements. Also, as systems increase in scale, software development requires more and more system-related reasoning, which makes software engineering education and training even more challenging. How can we teach software engineers (students or other trainees) to cope with problems of scale? To what extent should system thinking be a part of software engineering education? As well as being experts in designing software, how far should software developers also be experts in system engineering or other application domains?

Topics of Interest

JSEET 2015 is looking for contributions that address new challenges and best practices in software engineering and training. While we welcome submissions on all topics related to software engineering education and training, we are particularly interested in submissions exploring recent developments in aspects of incorporating software engineering with system engineering, or emphasizing system concerns such as sustainability, dependability, usability, scalability, different types of systems, and similar.

The track is intended to cover a wide range of topics, including (but not limited to):

  • software and system development;
  • new best practices for SEET;
  • innovative curriculum or course formats;
  • blending software engineering and other disciplines, such as music, art and psychology;
  • blending software engineering and other engineering disciplines, such as electrical engineering and bioengineering;
  • exploring the widespread adoption of mobile devices for SEET;
  • multidisciplinary team development and project management;
  • domain engineering; social and cultural issues;
  • global and distributed software engineering;
  • cooperation in education between industry and academia;
  • methodological aspects of software engineering education;
  • continuous education to cope with technological change

Format and Submissions for the JSEET

  • Full papers, up to 10 pages, documenting results and findings, where the research presented has followed established research methods;
  • Short papers, up to 4 pages, reporting novel results that have not been fully evaluated, which will be presented as posters;
  • Case study papers, up to 10 pages, reporting on novel courses, tools, or delivery formats;
  • Panel session proposals, up to 4 pages, which describe the topic to be discussed, explain why this topic will be of interest and give details of the proposed panel membership. Note that proposals for panel sessions will be considered for inclusion in either ICSE or CSEE&T, as determined by the JSEET committee.

Sumbissions that adhere to the ICSE 2015 formatting and submission Instructions can be made using the EasyChair link provided here: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jseet2015

Important Dates

  • Submission deadline: October 24, 2014
  • Notification of reviewing decisions: January 21, 2015
  • Camera ready due: February 13, 2015
