Research Paper Submission
Research papers should describe innovative and significant work in software process improvement, which is relevant to the software industry. The papers should be readable for a scientific and industrial audience and support claims with appropriately described evidence or references to relevant literature.
18 selected papers will be published in the Springer Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) series. CCIS is a spin off from LNCS and the same typing instructions apply as for the Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series.
All papers will be reviewed by at least two members of the programme committee. Papers will be evaluated according to originality, significance of the contribution, quality of written and graphical presentation, research method applied and appropriateness of comparison to relevant research and literature.
How to Submit
Your paper has to be conform to the Springer CCIS format which is the same as the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) format (please see the author guidelines of Springer). The paper has to be uploaded with the below research paper upload function and shouldn´t have to exceed 12 pages.
Note, that for a paper to be published in the proceedings the authors have to sign a copyright form and at least one of the authors has to present the paper at the conference. The papers will be published in print and electronically and therefore we need all the source files for the papers.
