Industry Track

The main objective of the Industry Track is to encourage researchers and practitioners to discuss innovations and solutions to concrete problems related to the comprehension of large programs. The track also aims at identifying challenges and open problems related to the field. The topics of interest for this track are the same as for the main research track, i.e., all the topics in the research and practice of program comprehension.  By  exposing  different  facts  related to  program  comprehension  we  hope that  on the  one  hand practitioners learn new facets of program comprehension and on the other hand that academia get new insights that can be introduced in various lectures and be further developed as new research topics. Last but not least, we hope that the discussion-based format of the industry track will contribute  to  increase  synergies  between  industry  and  academia  for  addressing  the  most interesting and realistic program comprehension research directions.

Format and Submission

Submissions must be 1 or 2 pages long, including all text, references, appendices, and figures. Submissions must be uploaded electronically in PDF format here. All papers must conform, at time of submission, to the IEEE Formatting Guidelines.
