We invite three kinds of submissions:

  • Full papers (6 pages) describing emotion awareness challenges, needs, novel approaches, and frameworks. New approaches must be evaluated with users in this category. Empirical evaluation papers and industrial experience reports are also welcome.
  • Short position papers (3-4 pages) describing a new idea or work in progress.
  • Posters, data showcase and demo papers (1-2 pages) summarizing a research project, tool, technique or datasets.

All papers must conform, at time of submission, to the ICSE formatting guidelines for Technical Research. All submissions must be in English.

Papers must be submitted electronically, in PDF format. Submissions should be made at the following website: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=semotion17

Papers will be evaluated based on their originality, relevance to the workshop, and their potential for discussion. The papers with the best reviews will be accepted to be presented and discussed in the workshop. Accepted papers will be published as an ICSE 2016 Workshop Proceedings in the ACM and IEEE Digital Libraries and 
will be distributed to the workshop participants. The official publication date of the workshop proceedings is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of ICSE 2016. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.

It is the desire of the organizers that discussion of research at the workshop does not preclude publication of closely related material at conferences or journals. Therefore, authors of accepted papers will be able to choose whether to include their papers in the workshop proceedings.

Special Issue on Affect Awareness in Software Engineering. Authors of distinguished papers will be invited to submit an extended version to the special issue on Affect Awareness in Software Engineering of the Journal of Systems and Software.
