The 2016 International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) Workshops provide a forum for
a group of 20-50 participants to discuss topics in software engineering research and practice.
ICSE Workshops will provide opportunities for researchers to exchange and discuss scientific and engineering
ideas at a stage before they have matured to warrant conference or journal publication. ICSE Workshops also
serve as incubators for scientific communities that form and share a particular research agenda.
ICSE 2016 Workshops may be either one or two days long and may be held before or after the main conference.
Participation in ICSE workshops is typically open. ICSE 2016 workshops can produce workshop proceedings to be published in the ACM Digital Library.

workshops that will opt for publication in the ACM Digitial Library prior to
the event, the call for submissions must include the following statement: “The
official publication date of the workshop proceedings is the date the
proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up
to two weeks prior to the first day of ICSE 2016. The official publication date
affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.”
2016 will not pay for registration, travel, or other arrangements for workshop
organizers or any of their invited speakers or guests.
participants, including workshop organizers, keynote speakers, and invited guests,
