ASSE 2012 - 13th Argentine Symposium on Software Engineering


JAIIO (Argentine Conference on Informatics) is one of the most significant conferences and prestige in the region, organized by SADIO (Argentine Society of Informatics) since 1961, with the participation of professionals from industry and academia.
ASSE 2012 (Argentine Symposium on Software Engineering) will bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners to discuss new ideas, problems and experiences in the field of Software Engineering. ASSE 2012 will be part of the 41th JAIIO. ASSE 2012 seeks original works in the wide spectrum of Software Engineering, from academic research to industrial and business applications with significant impact and lessons learned from application development.

Submission Categories

Submissions are invited in the following track categories:    

  • Full research papers: 15 pages maximum length
  • Experience Reports: 10 pages maximum length

For research papers we invite submissions describing original research results, case studies, and empirical studies. Some Full papers, which in the opinion of the committee, may be proposed as Short research papers with a maximum of 6 pages maximum length.

We encourage submissions relating to all aspects of software engineering, especially on topics of emerging interest. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:   

  • Requirements Engineering
  • Software Specification
  • Formal Methods
  • Verification, Validation and Testing
  • Software Architecture and Design
  • Patterns and Frameworks
  • Reverse Engineering, Refactoring, and Evolution
  • Program Comprehension and Visualization
  • Tools and Environments
  • Development Paradigms and Software Processes and methods
  • Software Metrics
  • Quality Assurance
  • Web Engineering
  • Object Oriented, Component-based, Aspect-oriented, Service-oriented Software Engineering
  • Model Driven Engineering
  • Distributed Systems and Middleware
  • Mobile and Embedded Systems
  • Open Standards and Certification
  • Software Configuration and Deployment
  • Software Project Management

For experience reports we are inviting practitioners to present new advances or insights in software engineering methods, practices or tools. A contribution should consist of a brief explanation of the method, practice, or tool in question, a description of the context and particulars in which you have experience, the results you’ve achieved, and the lessons you and your organization have learned relative to this method, practice or tool, its applicability, its effectiveness, or insights on how to further improve it. In particular, the content must be practical and relevant, and be presented in a well-documented and thorough manner.

All papers must be written in English, Spanish or Portuguese. They will be reviewed by an international Program Committee, which will be composed of members from both Industry and Academia, so that research papers and experience reports can be evaluated by experts in the subject.  

Papers may be accepted for presentation as talks or as posters during the conference. All papers and experience reports will be published in SADIO Proceedings of the JAIIO. Best papers will be invited for publication in the Electronic Journal of SADIO.
