ICSE 2009 - 31st International Conference on Software Engineering

May 16, 2009 - May 24, 2009

ICSE is the leading international forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, results, experiences and concerns in the field of software engineering.

We invite high quality submissions describing original unpublished research results, case studies, and empirical studies. We encourage submissions relating to all aspects of software engineering, especially on topics of emerging interest. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

  • Requirements Engineering
  • Specification and Verification
  • Software Architecture and Design
  • Patterns and Frameworks
  • Analysis and Testing
  • Reverse Engineering, Refactoring, and Evolution
  • Program Comprehension and Visualization
  • Tools and Environments
  • Empirical Software Engineering
  • Development Paradigms and Software Processes
  • Software Metrics
  • Computer-supported Cooperative Work
  • Component-based, Aspect-oriented, Service-oriented Software Engineering
  • Model Driven Engineering
  • Distributed Systems and Middleware
  • Mobile and Embedded Systems
  • Open Standards and Certification
  • Software Economics
  • Software Configuration and Deployment
  • Dependability (safety, security, reliability)
  • Case Studies and Experience Reports
  • Management, Scheduling, Planning

ICSE is a very selective conference, but it is still a conference. This means that we are interested in innovative ideas that are well presented, timely, have strong potential, but are not necessarily perfect or complete. Improvements over previously published work are expected to be evaluated through rigorous analyses, empirical studies, or experiments.

In contrast, variants on existing work must show a demonstrably significant improvement in quality, productivity, or other metric. Submissions must clearly and comprehensively report on relevant related work and on how a paper's contributions advance the state of the art. Lastly, even the best ideas can be misunderstood if the writing is poor, so we strongly encourage all authors to ensure that their submissions are written in clear and grammatically correct English.

This year, we introduce a mentoring program aimed at new prospective submitters to the research track, in which past ICSE authors offer advice on the structure and content of a prospective submission. See the Mentoring Program website for details (
