October 23, 2020. Message from the ICSR2020 chairs

Dear software and system reuse researchers, ICSR authors and prospective attendees,

The proceedings are off to Springer this morning! great job everyone! Because the conference is fully virtual (using the whova.com platform), you will be able to participate from the comfort of your home or office … in your time zone! Because the bulk of the authors is centered around the mediterranean (11 papers out of 18), we chose a schedule that is “moderately inconvenient” for most people, i.e. from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm UTC, which is 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm Tunis / Paris time (11 papers), 8:00 am to 1:00 pm EST Montreal/New York time (6 papers), and, well, 8:00 pm to 1:00 am in Beijing (1 paper).

With the “reduced” daily hours, the conference will take place over four days, Dec 1 -4, with the first day for satellite events (doctoral symposium, tutorials), and Dec 2-4 for the main technical program. Each 5-hour day consists of three sessions: a paper session, followed by a keynote or panel, starting at 2:45 pm UTC, followed by a second paper session. We end an hour earlier (5:00 pm UTC) on Friday; please check the program for details.

New this year, the Doctoral Symposium will include a “job fair”, where researchers can present the research projects for which they seek graduate students and postdocs, and potential grad students and postdocs can present/advertize their skills, for a match-up.

Finally, both the conference registration and management will be done through whova. We are in the process of setting that up. As soon as it is up, we will announce it through this page, and through our twitter account @icsr2020.

Keep up the great work, and stay healthy and happy,

Hafedh Mili, General Chair
Sihem Ben Sassi, PC co-Chai
Stéphane Ducasse, PC co-Chair
Lamia Labed, workshops and tutorials Chair
Chouki Tibermacine, publicity & doctoral symposium Chair
