ESEC/FSE 2021
Mon 23 - Sat 28 August 2021 Athens, Greece

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 2021 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 before the research track. Proposals for workshops after the main track can be considered but are subject to the availability of proper spaces. Prospective workshop organizers are encouraged to contact the conference general chairs should any questions arise.

Important Dates

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

  • Deadline for workshop proposals submission March 8, 2021
  • Deadline for notification March 12, 2021
  • Deadline for workshop papers submissions are up to workshop chairs.

To align with the proceedings process, we suggest the following schedule.

  • Workshop papers submission (suggested period) May 1 - June 1, 2021
    • Workshop papers notification July 1, 2021
    • Workshop papers camera-ready (hard) July 8, 2021

We are still hoping for ESEC/FSE to partly take place in Athens, but due to COVID-19 and travel difficulties significant parts of the conference and the workshops will take place online.

Workshop Proposal Guidelines

Workshop proposals must be up to 4 pages in length and conform to the ACM Conference Format. 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 2021 web pages. 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. Specify if the workshop intends to publish its proceedings.

  • The paper selection procedure, including the types of papers permitted (demos, short, long, position statements, … 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 2021 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.

  • Whether there is a possibility for the workshop to take place physically in Athens or not. A physical workshop would mean that at least one workshop chair would be willing and find it likely to be able to travel to Athens, if the conference takes place in physical form and travel restrictions allow it. Based on last year’s experience, travelling from the EU may be possible and from most other countries difficult. This information is required for planning purposes only.

  • Ideally, a workshop proposal should consist of an up-to-two page description (to be included in the conference proceedings, if accepted) and an appendix (up to two pages) containing additional material, if appropriate.

How to Submit

Please send your workshop proposal to the conference general chairs: Diomidis Spinellis and Georgios Gousios.

APEQS 2021

2nd International Workshop on Architectures and Paradigms for Engineering Quantum Software

Quantum computers have matured from experimental prototypes into first commercial offerings. This raises many fundamental and practical issues on how to program such machines, from finding algorithms via integration and testing to educating software engineers. Since classical and quantum software differ markedly, new methods need to be devised, and existing results and techniques adapted. The purpose of APEQS is to advance both, quantum computing and software engineering, tightly together.

SEA4DQ 2021

1st International Workshop on Software Engineering and AI for Data Quality in Cyber-Physical Systems

How can software engineering and artificial intelligence (AI) help manage and tame data quality issues in CPS? This is the question we aim to investigate in this workshop SEA4DQ. Emerging trends in software engineering need to take data quality management seriously as CPS are increasingly data-centric in their approach to acquiring and processing data along the edge-fog-cloud continuum. The SEA4DQ workshop will provide researchers and practitioners a forum for exchanging ideas, experiences, understanding of the problems, visions for the future, and promising solutions to the problems in data quality in CPS.

TORACLE 2021

1st International Workshop on Test Oracles

The challenge of distinguishing correct from incorrect test executions is called the (test) oracle problem and it is recognised as one of the fundamental challenges in software testing. For the first time TORACLE 2021 will bring together researchers and practitioners working on the techniques, approaches and tools related to the alleviation and automation of the oracle problem. The workshop will enable the participants to present ideas, discuss recent results and develop a shared agenda for future research.

TORACLE is a one-day workshop, which will consist of two sessions followed by a discussion panel.
