Submission Evaluation Process
Each submission will be reviewed by the Program Co-Chairs to ensure compliance with the required submission format, compliance rules, and scope.
Submissions that do not meet these criteria will be rejected.
Submissions that meet the criteria of the conference will be reviewed and evaluated on the basis of originality, evaluation, soundness, importance of contribution, quality of presentation, and appropriate comparison to related work.
New to ICSE 2015.
To scale to the increasing number of ICSE submissions, to enable broader community participation, and to have access to additional reviewing expertise, ICSE 2015 will tap into the expertise of two committees working in tandem: a Program committe (PC) and a Review committee (RC).
The reviewing process will consist of two phases.
In the first phase, PC and RC members will help to provide two reviews per submission. Submissions with at least one supportive review will advance to the second phase where they will receive a third review by a PC member. This will be followed by an on-line discussion to clarify reviewers’ positions, assignment of an additional reviewer if necessary, and a physical meeting with PC members to decide the final list of accepted papers.
More details about the reviewing process can be found at F.A.Q.
