The goal of the Early Research Achievements (ERA) track is to provide researchers and practitioners with a forum for presenting novel ideas in early stages of research. The proposed ideas and promising work submitted to this track are not required to have been fully evaluated. The topics of interest for this track are the same as the main research track and concern all the topics in the research and practice of software maintenance and evolution.
The ERA track is specifically looking for fresh, innovative, provocative ideas. We aim to create an open atmosphere where discussion and feedback stands central.
Papers submitted to the ERA must not have been previously accepted for publication or submitted for review to another conference, journal, or book.
Submissions must be in English and conform to the IEEE proceedings style. They must be five-page long, including all text, references, appendices, and figures. Papers must be submitted electronically as PDF files via Easychair.
Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of their originality, importance of contribution, soundness, evaluation, quality of presentation, and appropriate comparison to related work. Emphasis will be put on the originality and timeliness of the proposed contribution; a full evaluation of the proposed ideas is not required. Each submission will be reviewed by at least two members of the ERA Program Committee.
Accepted papers will get a short presentation and also a poster presentation.
