The International Conference on Software Engineering, ICSE, provides programs where researchers, practitioners, and educators present, discuss, and debate the most recent innovations, trends, experiences, and challenges in the field of software engineering. ICSE 2013, the 35th in the conference series, encourages contributors from academia, industry, and government to share leading-edge software engineering ideas with inspirational leaders in the field.  All events are at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco, right in the heart of the Embarcadero District, in view of the San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate bridge.  Please join us for what promises to be a memorable ICSE!

Opportunities for professional engagement include workshops, tutorials, demonstrations, posters, exhibits, paper tracks on research, education and software engineering in practice, as well as a set of co-located events.  Students, as the lifeblood of the field, will be prominent at ICSE 2013 not only as contributors to the conventional opportunities, but also through the ACM Student Research Competition (SRC) and the worldwide Student Contest on Software Engineering (SCORE).  The main conference (May 22-24) will have multiple tracks that intermix research, education, practice, demonstrations, posters, new and emerging ideas, and keynotes. Tutorials, workshops, and co-located events will be held before (May 18-21) and after (May 24-26) the main conference.

We invite you to browse this website early and often and to consider submitting to any (or all!) parts of the program, as well as to the co-located events.

We are pleased to announce our fantastic keynote speakers
