About the Conference

Since 1997, the International Conference on Evaluation and Assessment in Software Engineering (EASE) has been a forum for knowledge sharing about issues related to empirical software engineering and their application in software development practice. In a workshop-like atmosphere, researchers present and discuss the latest results of empirical and evaluation studies covering a wide range of topics in software engineering.

Key Note Speakers

Brendan Murphy, Principal Researcher, Microsoft Research Centre, Cambridge, UK

Anthony Finkelstein, Professor of Software Systems Engineering, University College London


We invite the submission of papers describing original and unpublished results of empirical research in all areas of Software Engineering. We seek submissions of results with strong empirical foundations which are based on evaluating or assessing software engineering processes, products and people. Topics may relate to any aspect of empirical software engineering, and include, but are not limited to:

  1. Experiments and Quasi-experiments
  2. Survey Research
  3. Case studies
  4. Ethnographic and Observational studies
  5. Action research
  6. Replications of empirical studies
  7. Methodological issues and practices
  8. Systematic reviews, mapping studies, and meta-analysis

Paper Submission

We invite submissions in any of the following forms:
-- Technical Research papers(maximum 10 pages).
-- Short papers and posters (maximum 4 pages).
-- New ideas and research proposals (maximum 4 pages).
-- Doctoral submission.
-- Industry presentations.

Submitted papers must be written in English, should not have been submitted for review or published elsewhere, and must conform to the ACM SIG proceedings templates. Submissions are accepted via Easy Chair. Submit your paper here.

All submissions will be reviewed by at least 3 members of the International Program committee.

Proceedings & Special Issue
