ICSE, the International Conference on Software Engineering, is the premier software engineering conference, providing a forum for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, research, experiences, trends and concerns in the field of Software engineering.

In 2018 ICSE will celebrate its 40th anniversary, and 50 years of Software Engineering - 50 years of tremendously successful promotion of research, education and practices in Software Engineering.

ICSE 2018 is coming to Gothenburg, Sweden. Science and research are a genuine part of the Scandinavian culture visible through the institution of Nobel Prize awards. In addition, Sweden hosts high technology companies in which software plays an essential part. Town Gothenburg with its two internationally renown universities, with many ICT and ICT-related companies, with many cultural attractions, impressive modern infrastructure including the Scandinavian largest convention center, and surrounding beautiful nature is welcoming you!



ICSE 2018 has many events that enable presentations and discussion of different topics in Software Engineering and related areas, where the participants can present and discuss initial ideas, work in progress, preliminary results, ongoing work, and final findings and results rigorously analyzed and presented.
