CIbSE is the leading Software Engineering research forum in 
Ibero-America. The main objective of this conference is to promote high 
quality scientific research in Iberoamerican countries and, thus, to 
support researchers in this community in the publication and discussion 
of their work. In addition, the conference fosters collaboration and 
scientific production between academics, students and the software industry.
CIbSE 2024 will be held in Curitiba, Paraná State, Brazil and will 
include invited talks from influential researchers in the Software 
Engineering community. CIbSE 2024 will be held alongside three satellite 
events: the Doctoral Symposium, the 7th edition of the Ibero-American 
Advanced Software Engineering School (EIbAIS) and Industry Talks. The 
Doctoral Symposium is organised to discuss the ongoing work of doctoral 
theses related to the general area of Software Engineering. EIbAIS 
combines lectures and tutorials on current trends in Software 
Engineering by renowned speakers. The Industry Talks aim to bring 
together academics and practitioners from the local community to discuss 
Software Engineering issues in practice. In this edition of CIbSE, it is 
also proposed the submission of articles of R&D projects and contracts 
with companies, where researchers can describe their current lines of 
research with funding from national and international calls, as well as 
contracts with companies in which actions of technological transfer of 
value in the field of Software Engineering are carried out.

Authors are invited to submit high quality research papers describing 
significant, original and previously unpublished results in Software 
Engineering, in any of the official languages of CIbSE: English, Spanish 
and Portuguese.

The following article categories are welcome:

**Technical papers (no more than 15 pages): papers describing innovative 
research in the topics of interest of the conference. Papers in this 
category should describe an original contribution to the topics and 
should carefully support claims of novelty with citations to relevant 
Technical papers are evaluated on the basis of originality, strength, 
relevance, significance of the contribution, level of validation, 
quality of presentation and comparison with related work. When an 
article builds on previous work by the author(s), the novelty of the new 
contribution should be clearly described with respect to the previous 
work. Technical papers should clearly discuss how the results were 
Among the technical papers presented at the conference, a set of the 
best papers will be selected for publication in a journal indexed in the 
Journal of Citation report (JCR). Additionally, the best paper will 
receive a certificate of recognition.

**Emerging ideas papers (no more than 8 pages): papers describing new 
and unconventional approaches that depart from standard practice, on the 
topics of interest of the conference. They are intended to describe 
clear research ideas that are at an early stage of development.
Papers on emerging ideas will be evaluated primarily on their level of 
originality and potential impact on the field with respect to promoting 
innovative thinking. Therefore, gaps in the state of the art and the 
relevance, correctness and impact of the idea should be accurately 
described. While the idea being presented does not need to be fully 
validated, a presentation of preliminary results is expected to provide 
initial information on the feasibility and impact of the contribution.

**Articles on applied R&D projects or contracts with companies (no more 
than 4 pages): these contributions must deal with R&D projects that are 
in progress at the time of submission. For these articles the following 
information should be included: summary, main objective, beneficiaries 
of the proposal, technologies used and results obtained (so far and 

**Poster papers (no more than 2 pages): papers that describe an idea or 
initial state of a study, related to the topics of interest of the 
conference, and without the need to have obtained tangible results at 
the time of submission. The main objective is to enable conference 
participants to discuss these ideas with the authors and to contribute 
new insights to the work in progress. Accepted papers will be presented 
in poster format in a session during which interaction between authors 
and conference attendees will take place. In addition, the best poster 
will receive a certificate of recognition.

All papers must be submitted through EasyChair, using PDF format only 
(the link for submission will be made available shortly). Submissions 
should follow the Brazilian Computer Society style for conference papers 
Accepted technical and emerging ideas papers will be included in the 
conference proceedings, which will be made available through the Open 
Digital Library of the Brazilian Computer Society - SOL 
( and Curran Associates 
(, and subsequently indexed in DBLP and 
Scopus. Accepted papers on applied R&D projects or contracts with 
companies, and posters, will be published through CEUR Proceedings.
At least one author of each accepted article must register before the 
deadline for the final version. One registration corresponds to one 
paper only. Any author of each accepted paper must submit it personally 
or the paper will be excluded from the proceedings. If an author has 
more than one accepted paper, it is possible to pay 50% of the 
registration fee for the second and subsequent co-authored papers.
Papers that are not within the scope of the conference, do not follow 
the formatting guidelines, or have been submitted or published in any 
other forum (conference or journal) will be rejected without review. All 
other submissions will be reviewed by at least three members of the 
Programme Committee.

***Journal First***

Authors of papers on the topics of interest of the conference and 
accepted in JCR Q1 or Q2 journals are invited to present their research 
work at CIbSE. This provides an opportunity for authors to discuss their 
work with the community, as well as to enrich the technical programme of 
CIbSE. Presentations of these papers will be included in the CIbSE 2024 
The main evaluation criterion for selecting papers is the description of 
original results that are not extensions of previous conference papers. 
In addition, the article must have been accepted for publication in the 
journal during 2022, and must not have been presented at any other 
conference as a journal-first contribution.

At least one author of each selected paper must register before the 
submission date of the final version of the paper and present it at the 

Authors interested in submitting journal-first articles to CIbSE 2024 
should submit their proposals of no more than one page, in PDF format 
via EasyChair (the link for submission will be made available shortly). 
The following information should be provided: (i) title of the article; 
(ii) list of authors; (iii) affiliation; (iv) keywords; (v) journal and 
information on its impact factor, ranking and quartile (Q1 or Q2); (vi) 
DOI; and (vii) abstract. Articles must be written in English, Portuguese 
or Spanish.

***Doctoral Symposium***

The Doctoral Symposium aims to disseminate ongoing research by junior 
researchers, where a panel of experts will discuss with researchers to 
suggest new perspectives and improvements to doctoral theses.

The research submitted can address any of the topics of interest of 
CIbSE 2024. We recommend, but do not require, that the research is at an 
intermediate stage (~2nd year) so that expert suggestions can be 
included in the PhD thesis.

The suggested structure of the articles is as follows:

● Introduction to the field of research and identification of the main 
challenges in the field.
● Explicit formulation of the research questions and objectives, 
justifying why they were chosen.
● Summary of the current knowledge of the problem domain as well as the 
state of existing solutions.
● Outline of the research methodology being applied.
● Introduction of the proposed solution and the results obtained to date.
● Statement of the aspects of the suggested solution that make it 
different or better compared to existing approaches.
● Statement of outstanding issues and description of the next steps that 
are planned.
● List of references.

Papers for the Doctoral Symposium will be written exclusively by 
doctoral students (therefore, the name of the thesis supervisor should 
not be included). All papers must be submitted in PDF format via 
EasyChair (the link for submission will be made available shortly). 
Articles should be written in English, Portuguese or Spanish, and should 
not exceed 8 pages.

Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings. Authors 
of accepted papers must register before the deadline for the final 
version. Papers may be presented in person or online (hybrid), the 
latter option is recommended. Finally, the best paper will receive a 
certificate of recognition.


The Ibero-American Advanced School of Software Engineering (EIbAIS) 
represents the CIbSE's initiative to spread the knowledge of Software 
Engineering in Ibero-America.

EIbAIS aims to promote a forum for discussion on Software Engineering 
and its related technologies and theoretical foundations, through the 
participation of professionals, undergraduate and graduate students, and 
researchers. The tutorials are given by volunteers committed to 
contribute to the CIbSE community and to spread the knowledge of 
Software Engineering in Ibero-America.

EIbAIS is organised in two categories of sessions: (i) on the state of 
the practice and (ii) on the state of the art.

State of the practice sessions offer discussions on topics of general 
interest and often represent local demand. These sessions support the 
exchange of knowledge and practical issues with participants, presenting 
evidence-based Software Engineering results to the audience. Examples of 
state of the art topics include User-Centered Design, DevOps, Internet 
of Things, Microservices and Software Engineering for Data Science, 
Quantum Software Development, among others.

State of the art sessions offer discussion on emerging topics of 
interest and generally represent the perspectives of the Software 
Engineering research and innovation community. These sessions are 
intended to provide information on current and future Software 
Engineering technologies that could represent innovative concepts in the 
field. The state-of-the-art topics include the same topics of the 

All participants attending the sessions will receive a certificate of 
participation, indicating the sessions, lecturers and contents.

***Industry Talks***

Industry Talks aim to provide practitioners with a means to present and 
discuss their current work regarding real-world applications of Software 
Engineering. Talks exploring best practices, problems and solutions, 
emerging challenges in industry and other topics related to Software 
Engineering are welcome. Practitioners and researchers are invited to 
work together to explore how Software Engineering processes, methods, 
techniques and tools can provide industry with better solutions.
