  • Requirements engineering
  • Specification and verification
  • Software architecture and design
  • Analysis and testing
  • Development paradigms and software processes
  • Evolution and change management

  • Case studies and experience reports


Paper submissions will be made electronically via the ESEC/FSE 2009 submission web page, using the CyberChair service. All submissions must be original work, and must not have been previously published, nor be under consideration for publication, elsewhere (see also ACM policy and procedures with respect to plagiarism).

Both an abstract and the full paper must be submitted together electronically through CyberChair Submission Site, by the submission deadline.

Papers must be submitted as PDF and strictly adhere to the ACM proceedings format. Papers must not exceed ten (10) pages in this format, including all text, references, appendices, and figures (submissions exceeding 10 pages will be summarily rejected by the PC Chair without review).


Paper submissions will be reviewed by the ESEC/FSE 2009 Program Committee for originality, relevance, soundness, and quality of presentation. Papers must clearly identify their contribution, by explicitly stating the new results, their significance and their relation with previous work. They should be accessible to a wide audience.


Accepted papers must be accompanied by a signed ACM copyright release form and must be presented at the conference by one of the authors, without exception. All accepted contributions will be published in the ESEC/FSE 2009 conference proceedings, which will be distributed at the conference in electronic format and will be included in the ACM Digital Library.
