ISERN is a community that believes software engineering research needs to be performed in an experimental context. ISERN annual meetings are open for ISERN members, candidates and invited observers only (see ISERN Manifesto).

ISERN meetings are not conference style with refereed papers and presentations. Instead, meetings build on previous meetings and each session is supposed to foster collaboration, encourage discussions and contribute in building the knowledge in experimental software engineering. The continuous knowledge building will be formalized in ISERN Experience Factory.
