ASSE is an annual event that brings together researchers, developers, and practitioners to discuss and exchange ideas, problems and experiences in the wide field of Software Engineering. ASSE seeks original works in the wide spectrum of Software Engineering, from academic research to industrial and business applications with significant impact and lessons learned from application development.

This year ASSE will be held virtually during October 18-19, 2021, and will be co-organized by SADIO-INTA.

It will be part of the JAIIO (Argentine Conference on Informatics), which is one of the most relevant conferences in South America, organized by SADIO (Argentine Society of Informatics and Operations Research) since 1961, with the participation of professionals from industry and academia.

- Software Engineering Education and Training
- Software Metrics & Quality Assurance
- Software Product Lines
- Software Project Management
- Software Specification
- Tools and Environments
- Verification, Validation and Testing
- Web Engineering


Submissions are invited in the following track categories:

Full research papers: 14 pages maximum length

Oral communications: Short presentations aimed at giving researchers the opportunity to further disseminate research results already published in top journals and conferences (published during 2019-2020).

For research papers we invite submissions describing original research results, case studies, and empirical studies. In this edition, we are especially interested in technical contributions that also provide evidence of tool support. Some full research papers may, at the opinion of the committee, be proposed as short research papers with a maximum of 6 pages maximum length.

All papers must be written in English, Spanish or Portuguese. Papers will be reviewed by an international Program Committee. Papers may be accepted for presentation as talks or as posters during the conference. All papers and experience reports will be published in the SADIO Proceedings of the JAIIO. Best papers will be invited for publication in the Electronic Journal of SADIO indexed in Latindex.

For oral communications, we seek presentations discussing solid, recently published research results. We ask prospective contributors to submit an abstract (maximum 1 page) explaining the problem statement, motivation, research hypothesis and validation, and publication information (venue, date, link). Apart from the results themselves, we also encourage prospective speakers to briefly discuss the practical -i.e., industrial- implications of these results during their talks at the symposium.

Submission Guidelines

The versions submitted for review must be uploaded in .PDF format. The format for the camera-ready copy will be in Springer LNCS format. The correct reception of a submission will be acknowledged immediately to the contact author. Please include name, affiliation/s and address/es of the author/s. Papers should also include up to 5 keywords and an abstract of 70-150 words. In case a full paper is accepted as a short paper, the format is the same as the full paper but restricted to 6 pages. Please visit here for further details and examples of how to format contributions.

Submissions should be made through the SADIO's conference management system. To upload your contribution you first need to register and sign in. If you have any problems, check the detailed instructions about registration and submission.

Each accepted paper must be presented in the symposium, and the presenter must be registered in the conference, before the deadline for camera ready submissions in order to include the work in the Symposium.
