Far East Experience Track


The objective of the Far East Experience Track is to demonstrate the state-of-the-practice of software engineering in Far East Asia by reporting on various experiences and establishing a dialogue between practitioners and researchers on the benefits, obstacles, and weaknesses of applying software engineering principles, techniques, methods, processes, and tools in an industrial or organizational setting for a variety of applications.

Important Dates

  • SUBMISSION: 30 November 2005
  • CAMERA-READY COPY DUE: 24 February 2006


  • Submissions are now CLOSED.


  • Kouichi Kishida, Software Research Associates, Inc., k2@sra.co.jp


We invite the following classes of original, unpublished submissions which precisely identify and discuss lessons learned and experiences of benefit to other researchers and practitioners.

  • Case Studies describe the application of a software engineering technique, tool, or process in an industrial or organizational setting. A case study provides the rationale for the key decisions made during the development of a software or software-intensive product along with the accomplished qualitative results.
  • Experience Reports describe the history of a software project accompanied by a critical review of experience with the software during one or more development phases. Lessons learned from the experience should be described.
  • Experimental reports describe experiments which systematically control the influencing factors and results in quantitative data about some aspect of software development.

Review and Evaluation Criteria

Each submission will be reviewed by at least two members of the Far East Experience Track committee.

Submissions will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Clarity of the motivation for the report
  • Relevance of the object of the study
  • Validity of the study procedure
  • Significance and relevance of the lessons learned
  • Significance of the contribution
  • Soundness of the rationale or demonstration
  • Quality and clarity of the written presentation
  • Comparison with relevant research and other literature

Submission Structure

Your paper must conform to the ICSE 2006 Format and Submission Guidelines and should not exceed ten pages (including all text, figures, references and appendices). The results described must be unpublished and should not be under review elsewhere.


Each accepted submission will be allotted a maximum of ten pages in the ICSE 2006 conference proceedings and will be given a slot for formal oral presentation. The final version of accepted papers must conform to the ICSE 2006 Format and Submission Guidelines.
