Call For Papers

Combined Call for Papers
Symposium on Search-Based Software Engineering (SSBSE)
September 9-11, 2017
Paderborn, Germany
(Co-located with ESEC/FSE'17)


SSBSE'17 is the ninth edition of the annual symposium dedicated to Search
Based Software Engineering. SBSE studies the application of meta-heuristic
optimization techniques to various software engineering problems, ranging
from requirements engineering to software testing and maintenance. The
symposium provides a welcoming forum for discussion and dissemination that
will strengthen the rapidly-growing international SBSE community.

Research Papers: We invite submissions of high quality papers describing
novel and original work in all areas of SBSE including, but not limited to:
- Applications of SBSE to novel problems,
- Theoretical analyses of search algorithms for software engineering,
- Rigorous empirical evaluations of SBSE techniques,
- Reports of industrial experiences.

Research papers must have up to 15 pages in length, including all text,
figures, references, and appendices. For all other papers, submissions
should not exceed 6 pages in length (using the regular symposium format).

Short Papers: We also invite short papers presenting new ideas, tools,
experience reports, or novel techniques and ideas, which will be included
in the proceedings and presented at the symposium.

Student Papers: This track gives students the opportunity to showcase their
SBSE research and receive feedback from senior members of the SBSE
community. To be eligible, papers should be primarily the work of students
that have not yet completed their studies. The paper may have co-authors
who are not students but the student author is expected to present the
paper at the symposium.

Challenge Papers: We challenge you to apply your SBSE expertise to do
interesting things to, or with, a chosen set of software projects and
uncover interesting things related to them. The best competition entries
will be awarded special prizes. More details about the track will be
announced on the website.

Tutorials: 2 page proposals for 1 hour tutorials covering state-of-the-art
SBSE methods. Proposals must describe what will be presented and why this
might be of interest to this community. Proposals will be selected on their
novelty, technical content, track record of the presenter and, ideally,
degree of interactivity with the audience.

Transfer talks: Invited talks from authors publishing innovative work
relevant to SBSE, originally presented at other forums. To nominate
speakers for such talks, please email
