CIbSE 2017

Call for Papers


CIbSE (formerly IDEAS) is the leading Ibero-American research forum on Software Engineering. The main objectives of this conference are to promote high-quality scientific research in Ibero-American countries, thus supporting the researchers in this community as regards publishing and discussing their work, in addition to fostering collaboration and cross-fertilization among research initiatives. Building on the experience of 19 successful previous editions, CIbSE 2017 will be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in conjunction with the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE).

This year, we have plenty of reasons to celebrate. Besides the usual attractions, CIbSE competes 20 editions this year and, thus, special activities are being organised to celebrate this date.

The conference is organized in the following three tracks, each one having their own Call for Papers and Program Committees. Please click the links below to go to each one of them:

See each of the track CFPs for the important topics, program committee, among other important detail.


  • Abstract submission: January 16, 2017
  • Paper submission: January 23, 2017
  • Notifications: March 16, 2017
  • Camera-Ready: April 10, 2017

CIbSE 2017 also invites the submission of tutorial proposals in any topic of interest of the conference tracks. Moreover, a Doctoral Symposium (DS) is organized to discuss work in progress in Software Engineering during the PhD program. More information about tutorial and DS paper submissions is provided below.


We invite submissions of high quality technical research papers describing original and unpublished results of software engineering research. All papers must be submitted through the EasyChair submission system at, using PDF format only. Submissions must be written in English, Portuguese, or Spanish. Moreover, the paper should not exceed 14 pages, and it should be formatted according to the LNCS style. At least one author of accepted papers must register by the camera-ready deadline. One registration corresponds to only one paper, i.e. in the case one author plans to present more than one paper, each accepted paper requires an individual registration.


Doctoral Symposium papers comprehend those describing PhD work in progress. It should be a single author publication (thus, the name of the supervisor should not be included). Suggested paper structure:

  • Introduce the field of research and identify the main challenges related to it.
  • Clearly formulate the research questions and objectives, justifying why they were chosen.
  • Outline the current knowledge of the problem domain, as well as the state of existing solutions.
  • Sketch the research methodology that is being applied.
  • Introduce the proposed solution and the results achieved so far.
  • State in what aspects the suggested solution is different or better as compared to existing approaches.
  • Indicate the outstanding issues and describe the next steps that are planned.
  • Provide a list of references

All papers must be submitted through the EasyChair submission system at, using PDF format only. Submissions must be written in English, Portuguese, or Spanish. Moreover, the paper should not exceed 8 pages, and it should be formatted according to the LNCS style. The author of the accepted DS paper must register by the camera-ready deadline. We plan to have three DS sessions, one for each of the conference’s tracks, and the reviewers should be chosen accordingly.

Important Dates:

  • DS Paper submission: March 5th, 2017
  • DS Notification: April 1st, 2017
  • DS Camera-Ready: April 10, 2017


Tutorial proposals should include: title; authors’ names; abstract (up to 300 words); target audience; relevance of the topic; expected added value; needed material (description the material that the organization is expected to provide); name of the events in which the tutorial has already been presented (if any); a short bio of the authors. Tutorials should be planned for 1 hour. The tutorial proposals should be sent directly to the general chairs at (CC: until March 10th, 2017.


Any papers that exceed 14 pages, which are not within the scope of the conference, or do not follow the formatting guidelines will be desk-rejected without review. All other submissions are going to be peer reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee. Acceptance will be based on originality, contribution to the area, paper quality, and ability to generate discussion. All accepted papers will be published by the organization in digital proceedings. Additionally, the papers will be indexed by DBLP. The best paper of each track will receive an award certificate. We are also working to publish the best papers in a special issue of an international journal.


SET is a forum where researchers and practitioners from the Iberoamerican community may report and discuss new research results in all the areas of Software Engineering, except for topics in requirements engineering and empirical software engineering, which are discussed in the corresponding specialized tracks.

TOPICS OF INTEREST of SET include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Software Processes and Methodologies
  • Model-driven software engineering

As in previous years, the Workshop on Experimental Software Engineering (ESELAW 2017) will be celebrated within CIBSE 2017.

ESELAW is the premier Ibero-American workshop, and provides an stimulating forum at which researchers and practitioners can present and discuss recent research results on a wide range of topics related to Experimental Software Engineering, in addition to also exchanging ideas, experiences, and challenging problems.

This workshop encourages the exchange of ideas so as to understand the strengths and weaknesses of software engineering technologies and methods from a strong empirical viewpoint, including different kinds of empirical studies. Research on empirical methods and the design and analysis of empirical studies are also welcome.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Studies concerned with software processes and products.
  • The evaluation and comparison of techniques and models (cost estimation, analysis and design methods, testing, etc.).
  • Reports on benefits derived from using specific software technologies.
  • The development of predictive models for software engineering.
  • Experiences with research methods: measurement theory, experimental design, qualitative modeling, analysis approaches, grounded theory, protocol studies, families of experiments, etc.
  • The development, derivation and/or comparison of organizational models of the software development of industrial experience in process improvement.
  • Quality measurement.
  • Mining software repositories.
  • Process modeling and applications in industry.
  • Systematic reviews and evidence-based software engineering.
  • Simulation-based studies in software engineering.
  • Education and training in experimental software engineering.
  • Industrial experience, case studies, action-research, etc.
  • New ideas regarding the measurement, evaluation, comparison and development of empirical software methods.
  • Infrastructures and new techniques with which to conduct empirical studies.
