The goal of BENEVOL is to bring together researchers who are working in the field of software evolution and maintenance. BENEVOL offers an informal forum to meet and discuss new ideas, important problems, and obtained research results.
BENEVOL accepts submissions in two categories:
Technical papers (5 to 8 pages; single column) will undergo a mild yet constructive review. We explicitly solicit papers in the early stages of research, which are still rather rough around the edges and would benefit from feedback from the community. Technical papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee, assessing whether they are within the scope of BENEVOL (i.e., software maintenance and evolution) and meet its quality criteria. Authors will be asked to improve their paper and submit a camera-ready version that will be published in the CEUR-WS.org workshop proceedings.
Presentation abstracts (up to 2 pages; single column) report on research results without inclusion in the proceedings. They will only be reviewed for relevance, and they will be made available on the website of the workshop. Presentation abstracts can either be novel research results that should not be included in the proceedings or results that have already been published or are ready to be submitted to a conference or a journal. Of particular interest are summaries that try to provoke discussion and initiate challenging new avenues.
All submissions must conform to the new CEUR-ART style. One can use the LaTeX template directly on Overleaf or download an offline version with the style files (including DOCX template files). All submissions should use the single-column template. Technical papers must consist of 5 to 8 pages while presentation abstracts should not exceed 2 pages. The limits include the main text, figures, tables, appendices, and references.
Papers should be submitted via EasyChair. Please, mark the category it belongs to, i.e., a technical paper or a presentation abstract. You can upload incremental versions of your paper, so do not wait until the last minute to submit it.
