Call for Journal First Articles

CSEE&T particularly invites already published high-quality journal publications related to software engineering education. We call for:

Journal First Submissions (JFS, 1 page maximum)

Journal first submissions present research on software engineering education, which has recently been published in high-quality journals. Submissions must clearly give reference to the original publication and state how the topic is related to software engineering education and what the main contribution to be presented is. The original work must be included in the submission as supplement for reviewing purposes. Only the one page summary will be published in the conference proceedings.

Topics of Interest

The list below indicates areas of software engineering education in the focus of CSEE&T 2020. Submissions on additional topics consistent with the central theme of the conference are also welcome.

  • Requirements engineering education (REE)
  • Teaching artificial intelligence (TAI)
  • Teaching conceptual modeling (TCM)
  • Teaching formal methods (TFM)
  • Teaching skills (communication, teamwork,…) (TSK)
  • Teaching “real world” SE practices (TRW)
  • Teaching large courses (TLC)
  • Software quality assurance education (SQE)
  • Measuring education and training results (MET)
  • Motivating students and trainees (MST)
  • Social and cultural issues (SCI)
  • Novel delivery methods (NDM)
  • E-Learning, online training, and education (OTE)
  • Global and distributed SE education (GDE)
  • Open source in education (OSE)
  • Cloud computing education (CCE)
  • Cooperation between Industry and Academia (CIA)
  • Training models in industry (TMI)
  • Continuous education (CED)
  • Methodological aspects of SE education (MAE)
  • Software engineering education @ school (SES)
  • Software engineering education for novices (SEN)
  • Vision for SE education in the future (VEF)

Format and Submission Procedures

For 2020 CSEE&T will continue to use the IEEE double column format for its proceedings. All submissions must conform to this format, and must be within the page limit specified above (i.e. 1 page summary, the original paper is to be appended in its original publication format).

Submissions that do not adhere to the formatting guidelines or do exceed the page limits will be desk rejected without further review.

All papers must be submitted electronically through EasyChair at

Please observe the Important Dates.

Acceptance and Presentation

Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. All accepted submissions are subject to registration and presentation at the conference as a condition for publication.

Each paper is evaluated whether it fits the scope of the conference and is of sufficient quality. With each accepted paper at least one (co-)author has to register as delegate before the camera ready deadline and present the paper at the conference. Otherwise papers will not be published in the conference proceedings.

Oral presentations will take approximately 20 minutes with additional time of 10 minutes for discussions. Detailed information regarding presentation times for each individual paper category will be made upon program creation. Presentations should focus on triggering discussions for the benefit of both, the author(s) and potential adopters of the concept presented.


All submissions (in this case the 1 page summary) must be original and must clearly outline in which journal the work has been published before. It is expected that submitted papers comply with the ACM plagiarism policy and the IEEE policy on authorship. Prior to preparing papers for submission, potential authors should read the CSEE&T Researchers Guide, found at
