CIbSE is the leading research forum on Software-Engineering in Iberoamerica. The main objectives of this conference is to promote high-quality scientific  research in iberoamerican countries, supporting the researchers in this community to publish and discuss their work, also fostering collaboration and cross-fertilization among research initiatives. Building over the experience with 19 successful previous editions, CIbSE 2016 will be held in Quito, Ecuador.

ESELAW is a forum for researchers and practitioners to report on and discuss new research results in Experimental Software Engineering, bringing together Latin America’s academic, industrial and commercial communities. The workshop encourages the exchange of ideas to understand the strengths and weaknesses of software engineering technologies, focusing on the process, design and structure of empirical studies, as well as on results from specific studies. In this perspective, ESELAW emphasizes contributions and original researches on Experimental Software Engineering. All contributions will be peer reviewed.



Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Studies concerned with software processes and products
  • Evaluation and comparison of techniques and models (cost estimation, analysis and design methods, testing)
  • Reports on benefits derived from using specific software technologies
  • Development of predictive models for software engineering
  • Experiences with research methods: measurement theory, experimental design, qualitative modeling, analysis approaches, grounded theory, protocol studies, families of experiments
  • Development, derivation and/or comparison of organizational models of software development of industrial experience in process improvement
  • Quality measurement
  • Mining software repositories
  • Process modeling and applications in industry
  • Experience management
  • Systematic reviews and evidence-based software engineering
  • Simulation-based studies in software engineering
  • Education and training in experimental software engineering
  • Industrial experience, case studies and action-research
  • New ideas regarding measurement, evaluation, comparison and development of empirical software methods
  • Infrastructures and novel techniques for conducting empirical studies
