Call for Submissions
Experience Track on Telecommunications


Today, most new development of telecommunication networks and services is IP-based. This creates opportunities to build innovative services based on user context, and to converge voice services with multimedia, Web, and pervasive services. It also promises to improve service integration and network interoperation. At the same time, efforts to deploy voice-over-IP have not yet duplicated the scale, reliability, and security of the Public Switched Telephone Network.

From the perspective of software engineering, new IP-based telecommunication platforms can take advantage of paradigms and methods from other software domains. They must cope, however, with a decentralized operating environment in which it is much more difficult to achieve engineering goals and obtain guarantees of desirable properties.

The purpose of the industrial track on telecommunications is to showcase the relevance of software engineering to today's telecommunications industry. The track will consist of a mix of invited talks, contributed papers, and opportunities for audience participation.

Industry-Oriented Research Papers and Experience Reports Solicited

Submissions are solicited on any aspect of software engineering for the telecommunications industry. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Service creation languages, environments, and tools
  • Convergence with Web and pervasive services
  • User interfaces
  • Service composition, integration, or orchestration
  • Service delivery platforms
  • Network interoperation
  • Verification and testing
  • Software reuse
  • Scalability and reliability
  • Security analyses
  • Evaluation of standards
  • Infrastructure management

Experience reports should present unmet industrial needs, or describe the industrial application of a software-engineering technique in sufficient detail so that its effectiveness can be evaluated.

Research contributions should be tailored to the telecommunications domain. They should either present validated research results that are ready for industrial trial, or elucidate the steps through which such validation can be reached.

Submission Structure

We invite short and long papers in both categories. Short papers must be 2-4 pages, while long papers must not exceed 10 pages. All papers must conform to the ICSE 2008 Format and Submission Guidelines.

Papers must be submitted electronically via CyberChairPRO.


All accepted contributions will be published in the conference proceedings which will also be available electronically.
