ICSE, the IEEE/ACM International Conference on Software Engineering, is the premier software engineering conference. Since 1975, ICSE provides a forum where researchers, practitioners, and educators gather together to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, experiences and issues in the field of software engineering.

We are aiming to have ICSE 2023 substantially in-person in Melbourne, Australia. However we will endeavour to ensure 'hybrid' options enabling virtual as well as in-person attendance for as much as possible of the conference programme.

Call for Papers
ICSE is the premier forum for presenting and discussing the most recent and significant technical research contributions in the field of Software Engineering. In the technical track, we invite high quality submissions of technical research papers describing original and unpublished results of software engineering research.
Please note the following important changes for 2023:
As previous ICSE editions, we apply an open science policy. This year, we will ask a reviewer to perform a lightweight check on the shared artifacts (see below).
There will be a second response period for a subset of the submitted papers. Please check our calendar of important dates.
Also, we will continue the initiative started in 2022, giving emphasis to the significance of the research contributions (see review criteria).
