Call for Poster and Tool Submissions

CSEE&T 2020 seeks original research papers on novel ideas, methods and techniques for software engineering education as well as education experience & industrial training reports. Contributions may concern all fields of software engineering education, among others, university education at graduate and undergraduate level, industrial training, as well as teaching software engineering at various kinds of secondary schools. We invite submissions on any aspects of software engineering education and training.

The special theme of CSEE&T 2020 is Educating for the Future. Therefore, we particularly encourage submissions dealing with the use of new methods and technologies to improve software engineering education and training, and we seek contributions related to the challenges and issues when teaching these new achievements to learners.

Submission Types

We seek original high-quality submissions adhering to the IEEE formatting guidelines (, in these categories:

Poster Submissions (2 pages maximum)

We invite submissions of extended abstracts for posters related to the conference topics of software engineering education and training. Posters may present late-breaking research results, on-going or future research projects, training experience, or innovative work in progress.

Please submit an extended abstract of the presented contribution comprising the following contents:

  • Title
  • Author(s) and affiliation(s)
  • Motivation and goals
  • Background information if needed to understand the contribution
  • Adequate detail on the contribution
  • Related work
  • Links to additional information (e.g., project Website, source code repository, demo material, etc.)

Tool Papers (2 pages maximum)

We invite high-quality submissions of extended abstracts for the demonstration of tools related to the conference topics of software engineering education and training. Tool demonstrations provide the opportunity to show any innovative tools or research prototypes. We encourage submissions on tools that are:

  • Research tools from academic environments built to support novel research ideas
  • Extensions of existing or open source tools
  • Pedagogical tools that support teaching of software engineering
  • Mature tools not yet commercialized

The tool demonstration submission needs to contain the following contents:

  • Title
  • Author(s) and affiliation(s)
  • Motivation and goals
  • Relevance of the tool for software engineering education
  • Novelty and innovations of the tool and its main features
  • Maturity of the tool: case studies performed using the tool
  • Links to additional information (e.g., project Website, source code repository, demo material, etc.)

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 lengths specified for the class of submission. Detailed advice can be found at

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 by at least three members of the program committee. After discussion of the paper and the reviews by the program committee the final decision is made. 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.


All submissions must be original and must not have been published previously or currently be under consideration for publication elsewhere. 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

Preference will be given to submissions that either describe experiences and/or provide sound scientific data, as compared with ones that simply present untested ideas or that deal with well-established approaches which have been thoroughly covered in previous conferences. At the same time, though, “vision” papers are welcome if they present sound argumentation, based on solid references, concerning provocative issues.
