First workshop on Software Engineering methods in Spreadsheets


Co-located with the Annual conference of the European Spreadsheet Risk Interest Group in Delft , the First workshop on Software Engineering methods in Spreadsheets (SEmS ’14) will take place on Wednesday July 2nd.

We aim for an interactive workshop with a program that allows us to discuss the future directions of spreadsheet research.

For the workshop, we invite researchers and practitioners interested in the field of spreadsheet to submit. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Design and implementation of spreadsheet systems
  • Integration of spreadsheet systems with other types of systems
  • Managing large legacy spreadsheets
  • Spreadsheet testing
  • Error-finding in spreadsheets
  • Spreadsheet refactoring
  • Methods for spreadsheet engineering like scrum or domain-driven design


We solicit three types of papers for the workshop:

Research papers (4 pages) that present novel research ideas and early results
Position papers (2 pages) that raise open issues with the potential to stimulate discussion at the workshop and
Tool demos (2 pages) that present exciting spreadsheet tools that bring insight into the questions addressed by the workshop

All papers are to be submitted via EasyChair and should follow the ACM SIG guidelines.

Deadline: February 28th March 7th, anywhere on earth
Notification: March 28th
Workshop: July 2nd
