Call for Research Track Paperso<SCAM2017
The 17th IEEE International Working Conference on Source Code Analysis and
Manipulation (SCAM 2017) aims to bring together researchers and practitioners
working on theory, techniques, and applications that concern analysis and/or
manipulation of the source code of software systems. The term "source code"
refers to any fully executable description of a software system, such as
machine code, (very) high-level languages, and executable graphical
representations of systems. The term "analysis" refers to any (semi-)automated
procedure that yields insight into source code, while "manipulation" refers to
any automated or semi-automated procedure that takes and returns source code.
While much attention in the wider software engineering community is directed
towards other aspects of systems development and evolution, such as
specification, design, and requirements engineering, it is the source code
that contains the only precise description of the behavior of a system. Hence,
the analysis and manipulation of source code remains a pressing concern for
which SCAM 2017 solicits high quality paper submissions.
Covered Topics and Paper Formats
We welcome submission of papers that describe original and significant work in
the field of source code analysis and manipulation. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:
b" static and dynamic program analysis
b" repository, revision and change analysis
b" automated testing, abstract interpretation, verification
b" program transformation, slicing and refactoring
b" software quality, energy-efficiency, and security
b" source-level metrics and bad smells
b" clone and bug detection and prediction
b" concern and feature localization and mining
b" b&
SCAM explicitly solicits results from any theoretical or technological domain
that can be applied to these and similar topics. Submitted papers should
describe original, unpublished, and significant work and must not have been
previously accepted for publication nor be concurrently submitted for review
in another journal, book, conference, or workshop. Papers must not exceed 10
pages including all text, references, appendices and figures and must conform
to the IEEE proceedings paper format guidelines and must be clearly marked as
a research paper. Templates in Latex and Word are available on IEEE's website.
All submissions must be in English.
The papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format via EasyChair at Submission will be reviewed
by at least three members of the program committee, judging the paper on its
novelty, quality, importance, evaluation, and scientific rigor. If the paper
is accepted, at least one author must attend the conference and present the
SCAM 2017 also features an Engineering Paper Track for papers that report on
the design and implementation of tools for source code analysis and
All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings which will be available
through the IEEE Digital Library.
Special Issue
A set of the best papers from SCAM 2017 will be invited to be considered for
revision, extension, and publication in a special issue of the Journal of
Empirical Software Engineering (EMSE).
Important Dates for Research Papers
b" Abstract Deadline: June 15, 2017
b" Paper Deadline: June 19, 2017
b" Notification: July 20, 2017
b" Camera Ready Deadline: August 3, 2017
