EST special issue
The open call for the 4th EST special issue is now out! (New deadline: January 24
This workshop is associated with an Experimental Software and Toolkits (EST) special issue to be published in Elsevier’s Science of Computer Programming. The guest editors of the special issue will be Mark van den Brand and Kim Mens, two of the WASDeTT organizers.
All tool-related workshop papers are potential candidates for the special issue. The authors of a subset of these articles will be invited to submit to EST based on the quality of their paper and their tool demonstration during the workshop. Thus, not every tool-related paper will be selected automatically for EST.
After the workshop, authors will be informed whether or not their tool paper has been selected for submission to the special issue. Where possible, the special issue papers will be evaluated by the same reviewers as the earlier tool paper submitted to WASDeTT. The size of articles for the special issues will be between 15 and 25 pages.
For the special issue, a thoroughly revised version of the accepted WASDeTT paper has to be submitted along with the actual tool. Only papers and tools of sufficiently high quality will be accepted for publication in the journal. Note that the tool itself will be evaluated too, based upon the following criteria: ease of installation, quality of (user) documentation, ease of usage, applicability to the intended domain, and quality of source code (optional).
If you have further questions regarding the EST special issue please contact one of the guest editors (Mark van den Brand and Kim Mens).
