Emerging Researchers’ Forum at EASE 2018


The goal of the Emerging Researchers’ Forum (ERF) is to bring together emerging researchers in the field of empirical software engineering. The topics of interest to the ERF include all those listed for the EASE 2018 main conference. The ERF will provide a supportive venue in which emerging researchers can discuss potential and ongoing research that is at any stage of development, from ideas to results. The ERF will offer a friendly environment enabling emerging researchers to get feedback on their work, to exchange experiences, and to explore new research pathways. Furthermore, the ERF will stimulate interactions between emerging researchers and experienced researchers.


Participation and submission


Participation is open to research students (undergraduate research students, Master’s students, PhD students) and those within their first two years after obtaining their PhD who would like to share research ideas and results with their peers. We invite submissions of ongoing research and research abstracts. Up to three submissions to the ERF might be invited as short papers to the EASE 2018 main conference. Furthermore, authors of these papers will be invited to present their work at the EASE 2018 main conference. Submitted papers must be written in English, should not have been submitted for review or published elsewhere, must conform to the ACM SIG Proceedings template, and will be accepted via EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ease2018).
