Ranking & Metrics Impact Score is a novel metric devised to rank conferences based on the number of contributing top scientists in addition to the h-index estimated from the scientific papers published by top scientists. See more details on our methodology page.

Research Impact Score: 5.94
Contributing Top Scientist: 63
Papers published by Top Scientists 102

Conference Call for Papers

The IEEE/ACM Automated Software Engineering (ASE) Conference series is the premier research forum for automated software engineering. Each year, it brings together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss foundations, techniques, and tools for automating the analysis, design, implementation, testing, and maintenance of large software systems. ASE 2021 invites high quality contributions describing significant, original, and unpublished results.



Solicited topics include, but are not limited to:

Testing, verification, and validation

Software analysis

Empirical software engineering

Maintenance and evolution

Artificial intelligence for software engineering

Software engineering for artificial intelligence

Software security and trust; data privacy

Recommender systems for software engineering

Program synthesis & transformations, automated defect repair

Program comprehension

Mobile app development

Automated reasoning techniques

Software architecture and design

Reverse engineering and re-engineering

Model-driven development

Knowledge acquisition and management

Cloud computing

Human-computer interaction

Component-based service-oriented systems

Specification languages

Configuration management

Requirements engineering

Software product line engineering

Software visualization

Two categories of submissions are solicited:



Technical Research Papers should describe innovative research in automating software development activities or automated support to users engaged in such activities. They should describe a novel contribution to the field and should carefully support claims of novelty with citations to the relevant literature. Where a submission builds upon previous work of the author(s), the novelty of the new contribution must be clearly described with respect to the previous work, but the author identity should not be revealed, i.e., prior work should be referenced in the third person, to reflect the double-blind review policy. Papers should also clearly discuss how the results were validated



Experience Papers should describe a significant experience in applying automated software engineering technology and should carefully identify and discuss important lessons learned, so that other researchers and/or practitioners can benefit from the experience. Of special interest are experience papers that report on industrial applications of automated software engineering.



Like ASE 2020, New Ideas Papers will be managed and evaluated by a separate track (Short Paper track), with a separate PC, deadline, etc.



SUBMISSION

Abstracts and papers must be submitted electronically through the ASE 2021 HotCRP submission site.



Format. All submissions must be in English.



All submissions must be in PDF format and conform, at time of submission, to the ACM Proceedings Template (LaTEX users must use \documentclass[sigconf,review,anonymous]{acmart}).



Papers submitted to this track (Technical Research and Experience Papers) must not exceed 10 pages (including figures) plus up to 2 pages that contain ONLY references. Exceeding this limit will be grounds for rejection without review.



Experience papers should contain the phrase “experience paper” prominently in the abstract, to ensure that they are evaluated appropriately.



The authors are strongly encouraged to use the HotCRP format checker on their submissions. Note that the format checker is not perfect. In particular, it can complain about small fonts in figures, footnotes, or references. As long as the main text follows the requested format, and the figures are readable, the paper will not be rejected for format violations. If you have any concerns, please contact the program chairs at [email protected]



Originality. Papers submitted to ASE 2021 must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere when being considered for ASE 2021. Authors should be aware of the ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism and the IEEE Plagiarism FAQ.



To check for double submission and plagiarism issues, the chairs reserve the right to (1) share the list of submissions with the PC Chairs of other conferences, affiliated with ACM or IEEE, with overlapping review periods and (2) use external plagiarism detection software, under contract to the ACM or IEEE, to detect violations of these policies.



ASE 2021 will pursue a double-blind review process. If you have any questions, please see FAQs and/or contact the PC chairs at [email protected] Authors are encouraged to double check conflicts of interest on their papers in HotCRP shortly after the submission deadline.



Submissions that do not adhere to these limits or that violate the formatting guidelines will be desk-rejected without review.



Supplementary material. Supplementary material can be uploaded via the HotCRP site or anonymously linked from the paper submission. Although PC members are not obligated to look at this material, we strongly encourage submitters to use supplementary material to provide access to anonymized code or data, whenever possible. Please carefully review any supplementary material to ensure it conforms to the double-blind policy (described next). For example, code and data repositories may be exported to remove version control history, scrubbed of names in comments and metadata, and anonymously uploaded to a sharing site to support review. One resource that may be helpful in accomplishing this task is this blog post:

ACCEPTED PAPERS

Accepted papers will be permitted an additional page of content to allow authors to incorporate review feedback. The page limit for published papers will therefore be 11 pages (including figures), plus 2 pages which may only contain references. Note that all submitted papers must conform to the 10+2 requirement, described above.



We strongly encourage authors of accepted papers to archive the research artifacts, including code and data, associated with their ASE papers. Software Heritage (presented in a keynote at ASE 2018) requires only providing a URL to an existing archive:

Other often used solutions, focusing on data, include Figshare and Zenodo.
