Simposio Argentino de Ingeniería de Software

Argentine Symposium on
Software Engineering (ASSE 2018)

ASSE is an annual event that brings together researchers, developers, and practitioners to discuss and exchange ideas, problems and experiences in the wide field of Software Engineering. ASSE 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. This year ASSE will be held during September 3-7, 2018, in Buenos Aires at the Universidad de Palermo.

ASSE will be part of the JAIIO (Argentine Conference on Informatics), which is one of the most relevant conferences in South America, organized by SADIO (Argentine Society of Informatics and Operations Research) since 1961, with the participation of professionals from industry and academia. JAIIO is organized as a series of thematic symposia including topics such as artificial intelligence, software engineering, technology, high performance computing, industrial informatics, free software, law, health, information society, amongst others.



Submissions are invited in the following track categories:

Full research papers: 12 pages maximum length

Experience Reports: 8 pages maximum length

Oral communications: Short presentations aimed at giving researchers the opportunity to further disseminate research results already published in top journals and conferences (published during 2017-2018).

For research papers we invite submissions describing original research results, case studies, and empirical studies. In this edition, we are specially interested in technical contributions that also provide evidence of tool support. Some full research papers may, at the opinion of the committee, 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:

Agile Methods and Practices

Cloud-based Systems and Software

Development Paradigms and Software Processes and Methods

Distributed Software Systems and Middleware

Formal Methods

Model Driven Engineering

Object Oriented, Component-based, Aspect-oriented, Service-oriented Software Engineering

Open Standards and Certification

Patterns and Frameworks

Pervasive, Mobile and Embedded Systems

Program Comprehension and Visualization

Requirements Engineering

Reverse Engineering, Refactoring, and Evolution

Static and/or Dynamic Program analysis

Software Architecture and Design

Software Configuration and Deployment

Software Engineering Education and Training

Software Metrics & Quality Assurance

Software Product Lines

Software Project Management

Software Specification

Tools and Environments

Verification, Validation and Testing

Web Engineering

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 have 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 must be presented in a well-documented and thorough manner.

All papers must be written in English, Spanish or Portuguese. Papers will be reviewed by an international Program Committee, which is composed of members from both the 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 the SADIO Proceedings of the JAIIO. Best papers will be invited for publication in the Electronic Journal of SADIO (, indexed in Latindex.

For oral communications, we seek presentations discussing solid, recently published research results. We ask prospective contributors to submit an abstract (maximum 1 page) explaining the problem statement, motivation, research hypothesis and validation, and publication information (venue, date, link). Apart from the results themselves, we also encourage prospective speakers to briefly discuss the practical -i.e., industrial- implications of these results during their talks at the symposium.



The versions submitted for review must be uploaded in .PDF format. The format for the camera-ready copy will be in Springer LNCS format. The correct reception of a submission will be acknowledged immediately to the contact author.

Contributions (Full research papers and experience reports) must be written in English, Spanish or Portuguese, and have up to 12 pages for full papers and 8 pages for experience reports. Please include name, affiliation/s and address/es of the author/s. Papers should also include up to 5 keywords and an abstract of 70-150 words. In case a full paper is accepted as a short paper, the format is the same as the full paper but restricted to 6 pages. Please refer to for further details and examples of how to format contributions.

Each accepted paper must be presented in the symposium, and the presenter must be registered in the conference, before the deadline for camera ready submissions in order to include the work in the Symposium.

Submissions should be made through the SADIO's conference management system. To upload your contribution you first need to register and sign in. If you have any problems, check the detailed instructions about registration and submission.


Submission deadline: April 13th, 2018 extended April 30th, 2018

Acceptance notification: June 22nd, 2018

Final version (camera ready) deadline and author registration: July 9th, 2018
