Established in 1993, the Asia-Pacific Software Engineering Conference (APSEC) has become a leading international forum on full-spectrum software engineering and technology, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region. APSEC 2017 aims to bring together software engineering profession including researchers, practitioners, and educators to describe important new research results and report valuable project experiences, and also to foster wider communications and collaborations among academia, industry, and government.
The 24th edition of APSEC conference will take place in Nanjing, the capital city of Jiangsu Province, China. With a regional history of over 6,000 years, Nanjing is a famous historical and cultural city since it was established 2,500 years ago. As one of the four scientific research education cities in China, Nanjing has 41 general higher universities with over 600,000 college students. Nanjing is ranked No.1 among all Chinese cities in terms of the portion of population receiving higher education. Moreover, there are more than 540 various scientific research organizations in Nanjing with 530,000 research staffs.

We invite you to join in shaping APSEC 2017 through the submissions to the conference’s tracks. All paper submissions are rigorously reviewed by at least three reviewers and evaluated based on originality, technical quality, and relevance to software engineering concepts and technologies. All
submissions must describe unpublished work that is not currently submitted for publication elsewhere – any violation of this rule will result in the desk reject (without any reviews). 


All submissions must be in English, and must use the IEEE dual column conference template with 10pt font and not exceed 10 pages for regular research papers, 6 pages for short papers (including figures, references and appendices), see:
Submissions must be submitted electronically in PDF before the due date via EasyChair at:

The Chairs reserve the right to reject submissions (without reviews) that are not in compliance or out of scope for the conference. Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE Digital Library. A selective set of accepted papers will be invited by the Program Committee to submit an extended version for publication in the special issue of the Journal of Systems and Software.
