Software Engineering in Society
ICSE 2015 features for the first time the new Track on Software Engineering in Society (SEIS).
SEIS will provide a forum for discussing the role and impact of software engineering in a sustainable society that is incrementally intertwined with ecological changes, social challenges, economic imperatives and technical demands and opportunities.
- innovative, inspiring, thought-provoking research supported by well-motivated scientific intuition; new research directions; synergies with other disciplines
- solid research results; empirical studies; research experimentation bridging the gap between models and reality of a sustainable society
SEIS 2015 seeks papers challenging the role and impact of the software engineering discipline for a sustainable society, along various dimensions:
- environmental sustainability: energy, climate change;
- social sustainability: for both organizations, individuals and citizens, communities;
- economic sustainability: business and economic aspects of software engineering;
- societal sustainability: software engineering ethics, digital divide, software engineering implications of, and contribution to, various aspects of our society, recognition and exploitation of diversity to benefit software engineering practices;
- technical sustainability: software that can evolve, adapt to changing requirements, adapt to ever-changing society.
SEIS authors are encouraged to contribute both mature, and novel but soundly-motivated research. SEIS especially welcomes multi- and interdisciplinary research showcasing how software engineering can contribute, and complement, the various sustainability dimensions of our society.
The main criterion for acceptance is the degree to which a paper matches the aforementioned track goals and scope, and provides innovation to software engineering, emphasizing the ’Sustainability’ dimension of the track. The SEIS program committee will perform the assessment according to the following criteria: originality, relevance and soundness of the proposal, appropriate consideration of relevant literature, and quality of presentation.
Each submission will be reviewed by at least two members of the program committee.
Presentation at the conference
The SEIS sessions will feature a mix of short papers and long papers.
