    Technology, The Netherlands Tao Xie, Peking University, China
  2. The ICSE 2021 Program Committee •159 program committee members •Selected

    to have right mix of expertise for expected set of papers •Representative for software engineering research community • North America / Europe / Asia / Other: 40/30/20/10 % • Academia / industry: 90/10 % • Male / female: 60/40 % • Mix of experienced PC members and first-timers •Gratefully used SIGSOFT (self) nominations •Accepted in 2019 to serve on PC – unaware of COVID-19 THANK YOU!!
  3. New: Seven Key Areas and their Subtopics

  4. Area Chairs Help to scale ICSE and oversee reviewing process

    • AI and software engineering: Dongmei Zhang (Microsoft Research) • Testing and analysis: Anders Møller (Aarhus University) • Empirical software engineering: Tom Zimmermann (Microsoft Research) • Software evolution: Lori Pollock (University of Delaware) • Social aspects of software engineering: Daniela Damian (University of Victoria) • Requirements, modeling and design: Zhi Jin (Peking University) • Dependability: Eric Bodden (Paderborn University)
  5. 615 Submitted Papers! •Around 2,000 authors •Submitted in spring /

    summer 2020 -- in time of COVID-19 •Program committee accepted 138 papers – highest ever •Acceptance rate of 22.4% -- compared to 21% of past 3 years THANK YOU!!
  6. Papers can be in multiple areas Percentages of papers with

    at least one topic in given area.
  7. Review Process •Week 1-2 Bidding, desk rejects, assignments to reviewers

    •Week 3-9 Review writing •Week 9 Check on review quality, expertise, and author questions •Week 10-11 Review improvement, extra reviews, replacements •Week 12 Author response period •Week 13-15 Reviewer discussions and consensus building •Week 16 Chairs finalize decisions and meta-reviews 1800 reviews, 550 meta-reviews, 10,000 comments
  8. Reviewer Process – 10 eyes per paper •Each paper received

    3 reviews •For each paper a 4th PC member served as moderator • Guide discussion to consensus • Write meta-review •For each paper one area chair oversaw the process • Consistency across papers • Guide difficult discussion • Ensure decision is made
