The objective of the International Symposium on Empirical Software Engineering and Measurement (ESEM) is to provide a forum where researchers and practitioners can report and discuss recent research results in the area of empirical software engineering and metrics.

This conference encourages the exchange of ideas that help understand, from an empirical viewpoint, the strengths and weaknesses of software engineering technologies. The conference focuses on the processes, design and structure of empirical studies, and the results of specific studies. These studies may vary from controlled experiments to field studies and from quantitative to qualitative studies.


Empirical Software Engineering International Week (ESEIW) is comprised of five conferences:
  • ESEM: International Symposium on Empirical Software Engineering and Measurement
  • ISERN: International Software Engineering Research Network
  • IDoESE: International Doctoral Symposium on Empirical Software Engineering
  • IASESE: International Advanced School on Empirical Software Engineering
