Research Papers

We invite authors to submit papers reporting unpublished research results in the KKIO’s research categories. 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 with means such as 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 do not have to be fully validated, however their novelty should be well documented by references to literature documenting the already known research achievements.

The submission for the Springer series “Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing” (AISC) should not exceed 15 pages in the AISC format .

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.
The submission should not exceed 14 pages in the format.

Education papers

We invite also 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. The submission should not exceed 14 pages in the AISC format.
