A short note to all authors of the proceedings:

  • All papers submitted to the ICSE-7 proceedings will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers. The journal has asked the editorial team to ensure a high level of quality and originality for this issue.
  • There is no formal page restriction. However, the length of an original paper has to be kept appropriate with respect to its originality. To aim for 4 - 6 printed pages for a good original paper seems to be a good choice.
  • There is no plan to publish reviews in this issue. Every paper that is noticable longer than average or that has the style and contents of a review will be reviewed very critically.

We wish all participants a successful conference and hope for a large number of high quality manuscripts to be submitted to the proceedings issue.


Further information on the proceedings will be provided soon.
