ICSOB 2022

Call for Research Paper Submissions

We welcome both research and industry papers to the conference. The papers should be original and not submitted to or accepted by any other conference or journal. We are looking for original work describing novel approaches to software business for software products and services within a digital transformation context. Submissions can be: (i) full research papers (maximum 15 pages), (ii) short papers (maximum 6 pages) including research-in-progress papers, roadmap papers, or position and opinion papers, and (iii) practice papers (maximum 6 pages) reporting industry experience. Papers should provide insights on and/or industry case studies on digital transformation and software business, software products, practices, and principles.

The topics that ICSOB welcomes, but not limited to, are listed below:

Journal Special Section:
A selection of best papers will be invited to submit extended versions for tentative publication in a Special Section of a high-quality software engineering journal (details to follow).

EasyChair Paper Submission
We invite you to submit your papers to one of these tracks via the EasyChair submission system.

Important Dates

Papers should be submitted in PDF format. The results described must be unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere.

Submission Formats
Submissions must conform to Springer’s LNBIP format and should not exceed 15 pages, including all text, figures, references, and appendices.

Submissions not conforming to the LNBIP format, exceeding 15 pages (for full papers) or 6 pages (for short papers), or 4 pages (for poster papers) or being obviously out of the scope of the conference might be rejected.

The type of paper (technical/empirical evaluation/experience/exploratory paper) should be indicated in the submission. Submission is done through EasyChair.

Each paper will be reviewed by at least three reviewers. Accepted papers will be presented at ICSOB ’22 and published in the conference proceedings, which is published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP).
