ICSM 2012: International Conference on Software Maintenance – Industry Track

Tibor Gyimothy and I are organizing the Industry Track of the 28th IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance (ICSM 2012) in Riva del Garda, Trento, Italy. Please consider submitting! Papers are due by June 27, 2012. The conference will be held in the week of September 23-30, 2012.

The Industry Track of the ICSM 2012 conference aims to bring together people from both academia and industry in a venue that highlights practical and real world studies of software maintenance. This track aims to foster mutually beneficial links between those engaged in scientific research and practitioners working to make software maintenance efficient. We are interested in results (both good and bad), obstacles, and lessons learned associated with applying software maintenance practices. Experiences from practitioners provide crucial input into future research directions and allow others to learn from successes and failures.

For the industry track, we invite submissions of state-of-the-art descriptions, state-of-the-art practice and experience reports, and survey reports from real-world projects and industrial experiences. If you apply in an industrial context a method, model or tool, which you know was earlier presented at ICSM or other software engineering conference, we also warmly encourage you to submit a paper to this track.
