IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance 2004
Sponsored by IEEE
ICSM 2004, 11-17 September 2004, Chicago IL USA

Call for Papers

The International Conference on Software Maintenance (ICSM) is the world's
major international conference for software and systems maintenance,
evolution, and management.  For the 20th ICSM 2004 we invite you to join us
in exploring issues related to maintaining, modifying, enhancing, and
testing operational systems and designing, building, testing, and evolving
maintainable systems.

ICSM 2004 will address the major challenges confronting maintenance and
evolution.  We will concentrate on identifying new opportunities for
collaboration between researchers and practitioners.

RESEARCH PAPERS

Research papers should describe original and significant work in the
research and practice of software maintenance and evolution.  Research
papers may also describe a significant experience in applying software
maintenance and evolution technology.  Case studies, empirical research, 
and
well-designed experiments are particularly welcome.  We also welcome papers
that present leading edge and novel ideas in maintenance.  Research papers
must not exceed 10 pages in final printed form.  Submission deadline: March
1 2004.

INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS

Proposals for presentations of Industrial Applications are welcome.  These
can be state-of-the-art descriptions, experience reports, and survey 
reports
from real projects, industrial practices and models, or tool 
demonstrations.
A dedicated sub-committee of the Program Committee will review Industrial
Application proposals.  A one-page summary of accepted proposals will be
included in the conference proceedings.  Submission deadline: March 30 
2004.

PANELS

ICSM 2004 invites proposals for panel sessions that serve to stimulate
discussion about ideas and issues of importance to the software maintenance
community.  We particularly welcome proposals for highly interactive panel
sessions that encourage discussion and debate.  Submission deadline: March
30 2004.

TOOL EXHIBITIONS

We invite one-page proposal submissions for both commercial and research
tools.  The proposal should include a description of the tool and its
applicability to software maintenance and specify the type of exhibition
("Research Prototype" or "Vendor Tool").  ICSM 2004 will provide
accommodations for presenters of accepted tool proposals in the tool
exhibition conference room.  Presenters are asked to bring their own
equipment and are responsible for their own set up.  Submission deadline:
March 30 2004.

DISSERTATION FORUM

We welcome submissions of researchers that are planning to deliver their
dissertation in the next year or have delivered their dissertation (PhD) in
the last three years.  This forum is for PhD students to discuss their
research goals, methods and results at an early stage in their research.  
It
is an opportunity to interact with other students at a similar stage in
their careers, established researchers, and the broader software 
maintenance
and evolution community.

Please submit a synopsis of your dissertation and/or the full dissertation
in Postscript or PDF.  The synopsis must not exceed four pages.  Accepted
synopses will be included in the conference proceedings and a special
Dissertation Forum session will be organized at the conference where you 
can
present your results.  Submission deadline: March 30 2004.

TUTORIALS

Tutorials offer an opportunity for practitioners and researchers to get a
fast expert introduction to a specific maintenance theme.  If you have
expertise on specific software evolution methods, techniques, or processes,
submit a tutorial proposal to ICSM 2004.  Your proposal should include
learning objectives, a description of the target audience, intended 
duration
(half day or full day), a content summary, and a brief (50 words max.)
curriculum of the teachers.  Tutorials will be selected based on relevance,
quality, and ability to attract sufficient interest.  Two-page descriptions
of accepted Tutorials will be included in the Proceedings.  Submission
deadline: March 30 2004.

ADDITIONAL SPECIAL PUBLICATIONS

There will be a special issue of IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering
(http://www.computer.org/tse) featuring extended versions of best papers
from ICSM 2004.  All papers accepted for ICSM 2004 will be candidates for
this special issue.  Additional papers featuring empirical aspects of
software maintenance will be eligible for a special issue of the Journal of
Empirical Software Engineering (http://www.kluweronline.com/issn/1382-
3256).

MEDIA AND STYLE

Submissions will be accepted only as Microsoft Word, Adobe Acrobat PDF, or
PostScript electronic submission.  All submissions must be in English.
