Artifact Evaluation at ESEC/FSE 2013

Results presented in technical papers are often validated or supported by software artifacts. To reward the effort of creating artifacts, authors of accepted research paper may, if they wish, have their tools, data or model evaluated by the Artifact Evaluation Committee.

After the research paper notification of ESEC/FSE 2013, authors of accepted papers will be contacted to submit their artifact for evaluation. Evaluation of the artifact will be sent to the authors before the camera ready deadline.

Artifacts that are positively evaluated, will be formally recognized in the proceedings and at the conference.

Submission Summary


Artifacts will be evaluated in a similar fashion than papers are. They will be reviewed by a committee (the Artifact Evaluation Committee, AEC) and graded according to what your accepted paper describes.

Software artifacts who successfully passed our evaluation will be officially recognized (in the proceedings, during the conference, during the social event presentation). Fireworks will be for the distinguished software artifacts.

Artifact Evaluation Committee

The committee has been carefully selected by the chairs to reflect the relevant topics of ESEC/FSE.
