Research Papers

We invite authors to submit papers reporting unpublished research results in any of the KKIO Conference Topics. The papers ought to justify the claim of novelty with proper references to the literature, with a clear description of the previous work and proper explanation of the novelty of proposed ideas. The results ought to be explained and validated by examples, case studies, formal models and/or proofs, experiments, simulations, when appropriate. We invite also papers concerning novel, but well defined, research ideas and approaches that are at an early stage of investigation. These ideas need not be fully validated, however their novelty should be well documented by references to literature documenting the already known research achievements.

We invite research papers in two categories: Full Papers up to 14 pages, and Emerging Results papers up to 6 pages in the SCI format (Studies in Computational Intelligence).

Applications papers

We seek papers concerning applications of research ideas in practice and the application of innovative techniques, methods and tools to industrial case studies. The papers ought to provide a realistic and verifiable picture of the current state-of-the-art in software engineering, describe the context of a practical application and include proper references to the literature. It ought to explain also why the proposed solution is innovative, what may the industrial impact be and provide an explanation of the methodology used.

We invite research papers in two categories: Full Papers up to 14 pages, and Emerging Results papers up to 6 pages in the SCI format (Studies in Computational Intelligence).

Education papers

We also invite submissions on topics concerning software engineering education. These papers ought to describe clearly a novel approach to teaching and the underlying methodology. Novelty of such an approach should be justified with proper citations of the existing literature and must be validated using a well-defined method.

We invite research papers in two categories: Full Papers up to 14 pages, and Emerging Results papers up to 6 pages in the SCI format (Studies in Computational Intelligence).

Other Requirements

Proposals for Special Sessions, Workshops, Panel Discussions, Training/Business Workshops and Tutorials

The organizers of the conference are seeking Special Session and Workshop proposals on topics in the scope of the main conference or complementary to them.

The responsibility of the Special Session Chair(s) would be to prepare a specific Call for Papers, organize the sessions program committee (reviewers) and advertise the event.  The special session should include at least three papers. The papers are accepted based on two reviews provided by the Special Session PC members and one by a member of the KKIO Program Committee.

The session’s webpage will be hosted together with the main conference and handled by the conference webmasters. Alternatively, the Special Session Chair(s) can host the session webpage on a different server.

Papers accepted for the special session will be published in the same book series are those submitted for the main track of the conference.

Registration and other publishing services will be handled by the organizers of the main conference.

Please, submit your Special Session and/or Tutorial proposals using the form:
