FSE 2014

FSE invites high quality submissions describing original and unpublished results of theoretical, empirical, conceptual, and experimental software engineering research. Contributions should describe innovative and significant original research relevant to FSE. Submissions of papers describing groundbreaking approaches to emerging problems will also be considered. Submissions that facilitate reproducibility by using available data sets or making the described tools publicly available are especially encouraged. Papers submitted for consideration should not have been already published elsewhere and should not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere during the duration of consideration.
