The Objective of the Software Engineering (SE) Track is to provide an open forum for
discussing a wide range of experience and ideas of developing high-quality software
applications more effectively and efficiently. The SE track examines both macroscopic and
microscopic aspects of in-depth theories, tools, and practices in the field of software
engineering. It provides a platform for academic researchers and industry practitioners to seek
collaboration opportunities, and identify the state-of-art technologies, which are vital to the
software engineering community.

Paper Submission & Selection
Research papers and experience reports related to the above topics are solicited. Submissions must not have been published or be concurrently considered for publication elsewhere.
Papers should be submitted in the PDF format using the ACM-SAC proceedings format via the START submission system.
Each submission will be reviewed in a double-blind process according to the ACM-SAC Regulations. To facilitate blind review, author’s names and affiliations should be entered separately at the submission site and must NOT appear in any part of the paper including title, paper body, references, and any self-reference should be in the third person.
Paper selection is based on the originality, technical contribution, presentation quality, and relevance to the SE Track. Upon paper acceptance, prospective authors must provide a camera-ready version which takes into account the review comments. The conference proceedings will be published by ACM and also available online through the ACM Digital Library.
Note that we don’t have any separate review category for poster papers. Therefore, all submissions will be reviewed as regular papers. Papers that received high reviews but were not accepted as regular papers can be invited for the poster session. If the invited authors accept our invitation, their camera-ready paper should be re-formatted as a short (poster) paper.
Paper registration is required, allowing the inclusion of the regular paper/poster paper in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending SAC MUST present the paper. This is a requirement for the paper/poster to be included in the ACM digital library. No-show of registered papers and posters will result in excluding them from the ACM digital library.
Note for Accepted Papers
The length of each regular paper is 8 pages + 2 pages at extra charge (max of 10 pages).
The length of each poster paper is 3 pages + 1 page at extra charge (max of 4 pages). In addition, the poster authors need to prepare and bring to the conference a large poster for display and presentation. The poster size information will be posted on the SAC 2022 website.
The length of each SRC abstract is 4 pages (no extra pages allowed).
Student Research Abstracts Competition(SRC)
Graduate students are invited to submit research abstracts following the instructions published at
SAC 2022 SRC website through the START SRC Submission System.
