Call for Workshop Proposals

As well-established tradition, the Conference on Software Engineering Education and Training (CSEE&T) is an academic conference providing a platform for software engineering educators as well as industrial trainers to communicate on a variety of topics and actual issues related to software engineering education, training, and professionalism.

The special theme of CSEE&T 2020 will be “Educating for the Future”.

CSEE&T 2020 particularly invites proposals for half-day or full-day highly collaborative workshops and tutorials and practice & methods presentations.

Highly Collaborative Workshops (HCW, 3 pages maximum)

It is intended that the conference will include a number of open half-day or full-day workshops. The workshops enable groups of common interest to exchange experiences and viewpoints in a focused manner.

Workshop organizers should have a strategy for attracting attendance (and stimulate for submissions) based on objective criteria, for example, through a short refereed position paper. Other approaches are permitted as long as they are clearly specified in the workshop’s call for participation. Workshop organizers are responsible for authoring a call for participation and for advertising their workshops in appropriate places to attract attendees.

The workshop proposal (not more than 3 pages) should include the following:

  • workshop title, objectives, duration (half or full day)
  • relevance of the workshop to the conference
  • key organizer’s name, affiliation and a brief biography, plus the names, affiliations and brief biographies of those who will assist the organizer in the organization and conduct of the workshop (typically 1 to 4 such assistants should be sufficient)
  • strategy for publication of the workshop and expected number of participants
  • details of any requests for pre-workshop input (e.g. position papers) and how such will be moderated and used
  • workshop activities and format
  • any formal workshop outputs
  • strategy for judging the workshop’s success

Organizers of the accepted workshops will be required to submit a paper indicating the theme, format and activities of the workshop plus any appropriate background information. This along with any accepted position papers will be included in the Proceedings of the Conference. The total page length devoted to the workshop in the proceedings will be limited to 25 pages.

All attendees at a workshop, including the organizer for the workshop plus any attending assistants, must register as conference delegates before the camera-ready deadline. The workshop organizer(s) will be responsible for collecting all camera-ready versions of accepted position papers within due time. The workshop language will be English.

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

All proposals must be submitted via email to: Submission deadline has passed. Workshop paper contributions shall be sent to the workshops directly, see Workshops.
