8th International Symposium on Empirical Software
Engineering and Measurement Industry Track

September 18-19, 2014 - Torino, Italy

The ACM / IEEE International Symposium on Empirical Software Engineering and Measurement (ESEM) is the premier conference for empirical software engineering methods and results. A major goal of ESEM is to disseminate results of interest to both researchers and practitioners. ESEM 2014 will be held September 18-19, 2014 in Torino, Italy.

The ESEM Industry track provides practitioners and contributors from the industry with an opportunity to publish experience reports of potential interest to the researcher and practitioner communities.
