Call For Papers: New Ideas Track

Goal and scope

The FSE 2013 New Ideas track provides researchers with a forum to promote new and original research projects, to seek feedback on novel directions in a research program, and to discover opportunities for new research collaborations. New Ideas submissions are intended to describe a single and well-defined idea at an early stage of investigation. As opposed to regular research papers, New Ideas papers are not intended to serve as a vehicle for the dissemination of research results. Submissions to the New Ideas track should describe promising and potentially risky research in progress.

Presentation and publication

Submissions to the New Ideas Track should be a maximum of four pages. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to present both a brief talk on their research in the New Ideas session and a poster at the conference. At least one author of each accepted paper must register and attend FSE 2013 in order for the paper to be published in the proceedings. Accepted New Ideas papers will be allocated four pages in the main conference proceedings.

How to submit

All submissions must be in English. Submissions must be in PDF format. Papers must be submitted electronically through the New Ideas Track submission site.

Review and evaluation criteria

The main evaluation criteria will include the demonstrated or argued novelty and originality of the idea, the clarity of the idea's description, the relevance of the idea to the themes of FSE, as well as some preliminary evidence of the feasibility of the idea.
