Review and Evaluation Criteria

Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of originality, importance of contribution, soundness, evaluation, quality of presentation, and appropriate comparison to related work. The program committee as a whole will make final decisions about which submissions to accept for presentation at the conference.


All accepted papers will appear in the ICSOC 2008 proceedings (pending request), published by Springer Verlag as a part of its Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. At least one author of the paper is expected to present the results at the ICSOC 2008 conference. Selected papers will be invited for a special section of STTT (Int. Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer).
