Education Track


The Software Engineering Education and Training Track of ICSE 2006 will provide a forum for sharing recent advances, trends and concerns with software engineering education.

Important Dates

  • SUBMISSION: 1 October 2005
  • CAMERA-READY COPY DUE: 24 February 2006



  • Laurie Williams, North Carolina State University, williams@csc.ncsu.edu


The ICSE Software Engineering Education and Training Track welcomes high-quality submissions on topics related to software engineering education.Use of sound research design and empirical analysis supporting findings is strongly encouraged. Experience reports are welcome, though an emphasis should be placed on justifying and explaining conclusions using careful analysis and on providing a thoughtful retrospective. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Educational modules and resources in emerging areas, such as security and privacy.
  • Integration of research results into software engineering courses.
  • Use of innovative pedagogical techniques in software engineering education.
  • Use of Open source tools in software engineering courses.
  • Integration of agile practices in software engineering courses.
  • Educating undergraduate and graduate students in research methods.
  • Forming learning communities among undergraduate and graduate students.
  • Accrediting undergraduate software engineering degree programs.
  • Use of the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK) and the Software Engineering Volume (SE2004) of the Computing Curriculum in course/curriculum design.

Review and Evaluation Criteria

Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the Education Track program committee.

Submitted papers will be evaluated on the basis of originality, importance of contribution, soundness, empirical analysis, quality of presentation, and comparison to related work (as appropriate). Papers submitted for consideration must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review or submitted for review during the duration of consideration.

Submission Structure

Your paper must conform to the ICSE 2006 Format and Submission Guidelines and should not exceed six pages, including all text, references, appendices, and figures.


All accepted contributions will be published in the conference proceedings.
