Paper submission

SAM 2024 welcomes academic and industrial submissions in the following categories:
  • Full papers describing original, unpublished results (max 10 pages, including figures and appendices in ACM format, and up to two more pages containing only references in ACM format).
  • Short papers, describing work in progress (max 6 pages, including figures and appendices in ACM format, and up to two more pages containing only references in ACM format).

Full papers should describe significant, original, and unpublished results related to but not limited to any of the SAM-related topics. Short papers are insightful contributions on SAM relevant topics such as preliminary and initial research results for which a complete evaluation has not yet been performed. We also encourage the submission of (full or short) papers that describe negative results and replication studies. These types of papers advance our knowledge by allowing us to continuously (re)evaluate our understanding of the current approaches.

By submitting your article to an ACM Publication, you are hereby acknowledging that you and your co-authors are subject to all ACM Publications Policies, including ACM's new Publications Policy on Research Involving Human Participants and Subjects. Alleged violations of this policy or any ACM Publications Policy will be investigated by ACM and may result in a full retraction of your paper, in addition to other potential penalties, as per ACM Publications Policy.

Please ensure that you and your co-authors obtain an ORCID ID, so you can complete the publishing process for your accepted paper. ACM has been involved in ORCID from the start and we have recently made a commitment to collect ORCID IDs from all of our published authors. The collection process has started and will roll out as a requirement throughout 2022. We are committed to improve author discoverability, ensure proper attribution and contribute to ongoing community efforts around name normalization; your ORCID ID will help in these efforts.

Each paper submitted will be evaluated by at least three reviewers, based on significance, originality, substance, correctness, and clarity.

Best Paper Awards will be given to authors of long and short papers, which will be selected by the program committee and SAM Co-chairs among the accepted and presented papers.

Best SAM 2024 papers will be candidate to Innovations in Systems and Software Engineering ISSE NASA Journal published by Springer.

The SAM 2024 proceedings are expected to be published by ACM. It is requested:
  • All submissions must conform to SAM 2024 formatting instructions and must not exceed 10 pages for full papers and 6 pages for short papers (excluding references). The page limit is strict, and it will not be possible to purchase additional pages
  • All submissions must be in PDF and made through the SAM 2024 Easychair web page.

The review option adds line numbers, thereby allowing referees to refer to specific lines in their comments.
