Held biannually, ESEC/FSE brings together experts from academia and industry to exchange the latest research results and trends, as well as their practical application in all areas of software engineering.

We invite high quality submissions describing original and unpublished results of theoretical, empirical, conceptual, and experimental software engineering research. Contributions should describe innovative and significant original research relevant to ESEC/FSE. Submissions of papers describing groundbreaking approaches to emerging problems will also be considered based on importance, timeliness, and potential impact. Submissions that facilitate reproducibility by using available data sets or making the described tools publicly available are especially encouraged.

ESEC/FSE 2013 will offer a strong technical program with prestigious keynote speakers.

The location, Saint Petersburg, is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, the former Imperial capital of Russia, filled with architectural, artistic and cultural treasures.
