The International Conference on Evaluation and Assessment in Software Engineering (EASE) is an internationally leading venue for academics and practitioners to present and discuss their research on evidence-based software engineering, and its implications for software practice. The 24th edition of EASE will take place from 15-17 April 2020 in Trondheim, Norway, hosted by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). EASE 2020 welcomes high-quality submissions, describing original and unpublished research, as regular papers, short papers, industry papers, workshop papers, tutorials, and emerging results and vision papers. It also looks forward to contributions to the doctoral symposium and the poster track.
The International Conference on Evaluation and Assessment in Software Engineering (EASE) is one of the premier conferences to present research results related to empirical software engineering. EASE provides a stimulating forum where researchers and practitioners can present and discuss recent research results on a wide range of topics within empirical evaluation of software engineering technologies, practices, and tools; transferring and applying empirical research methods from other disciplines to empirical software engineering and reflections on the use of such methods, etc.
Types of Submission
The conference invites the following types of submission:
Full Technical Papers (max. 10 pages)

Cross- and multi-disciplinary methods and studies
Case studies, action-research, and field studies, including multilevel research designs
Design science studies
Development and evaluation of empirical prediction systems or software estimation models
Empirical studies using qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods
Empirically-based decision making
Evaluation and comparison of techniques and models
Experiments and quasi-experiments
Systematic literature reviews
Meta-analysis, qualitative and quantitative synthesis of studies
Modeling, measuring, and assessing product and/or process quality
Replication of empirical studies and families of studies

Software technology transfer to the industry
Submitted papers must be written in English, contain original unpublished work, and conform to the ACM Proceedings Format. The conference enforces the ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism (https://www.acm.org/publications/policies/plagiarism-overview).
To reduce bias in reviews, EASE conference will use double-blind review process. As a result, the manuscripts should be submitted for review anonymously (i.e., without listing the author’s names on the paper) and references to own work should be made in third person.
Please use submit manuscripts via EasyChair, and in pdf format: (https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=ease2020).
At least one author of each accepted paper must register by the camera-ready deadline.
