Call for Late-Breaking Results and Journal First Submissions


The International Conference on Software and Systems Reuse (ICSR) is a biannual conference in the field of software reuse research and technology. ICSR is a premier event aiming to present the most recent advances and breakthroughs in the area of software reuse and to promote an intensive and continuous exchange among researchers and practitioners.

The guiding theme of this edition is Sustainable Software Reuse.

We now invite submissions for Late-Breaking Results (LBR) and Journal First.




LBR submissions will be peer reviewed and the accepted ones will be included in the conference proceedings volume to be published by Springer in the LNCS series. An LBR submission may also contain innovative ideas that are being explored and have already shown some promising results. LBR submissions are expected to address one or more of the topics covered in the regular call for papers (


LBR submissions should be no longer than 12 pages (including references) following the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science format. Submissions will be handled via EasyChair ( Submissions will be **double-blindly** reviewed, meaning that authors should:

  • Omit all authors’ names and affiliations from the title page.
  • Do not include the acknowledgement section, if there is any, in the submitted paper.
  • Refer to the authors’ work in the third person.
  • Use anonymous GitHub, Zenondo, FigShare or equivalent to provide access to artefacts without disclosing the authors’ identity.




For Journal First, we solicit submissions related to articles that have been accepted for publication by a reputable journal and that meet the following criteria:

  • The article relates to the topics of the ICSR conference and the recent call for papers.
  • The article is an original submission to the journal and not an extension of an earlier conference or workshop paper.
  • The article is an original research article; review articles or commentaries will not be considered.
  • The article was accepted for publication by a journal on or after 1 January 2022, the acceptance must have been publicly announced, the article must be available at the publisher’s website (e.g., as “articles in advance” or published on a journal’s website), and the article must be written in English.
  • The article has not been presented at, and is not under consideration for, journal-first tracks of other conferences.

Accepted submissions will be presented as part of the ICSR 2024 scientific programme.

Submissions must be done electronically via Easy Chair

( and include:

  • Title and author information of the article.
  • The original abstract and keywords.
  • DOI of the original publication or, alternatively, a link to the publication at the journal’s website.

All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Chairs  At least one author of each submission accepted for the Journal First track must register and attend the conference to present the work. The articles will be listed in the conference program and ICSR 2024 participants will have access to the respective abstracts and a pointer to the original journal article.
