The IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance and Evolution is a renowned forum for researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, experiences, and challenges in software maintenance and evolution. We invite high quality submissions describing significant, original, and unpublished results. We solicit submissions relating to all aspects of software maintenance and evolution. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: - Reverse engineering and re-engineering - Software refactoring and restructuring - Software migration and renovation - Software and system comprehension - Software repository analysis and mining - Code cloning and provenance - Concept and feature location - Change and defect management - Evolution of non-code artefacts - Software testing - Maintenance and evolution processes - Software quality assessment - Run-time evolution and dynamic configuration - Human aspects of software evolution ICSME is a selective conference, but welcomes innovative ideas that are well presented and timely even if the findings are preliminary. All submissions must position themselves within the existing literature, describe the relevance of the results to specific software engineering goals, and include a clear motivation and presentation of the work.
