Call for Tutorials

The MSR Tutorials track aims to invite experienced software repository miners to give informative tutorials to our broad community, whether newcomers or mining experts. These tutorials will cover various topics related to mining software repositories.

We encourage researchers to submit an abstract outlining a talk, with a maximum length of one page (plus up to one additional page of references). We are soliciting abstracts in two categories:

  1. Research Problem: the talk outlines a single problem in an academic/industrial context that could be addressed using data from software repositories.
  2. Lessons Learnt & Opportunities: the talk outlines a series of actionable implications and provides promising directions for future researchers.

If you have any questions, please contact the co-chairs: Dong Wang ( and Ayushi Rastogi (


A one-page PDF file is required for submission, including the title, speaker names, affiliations, and the outline of the tutorial talk. Additionally, up to one page of references can be included. We do not require any specific template for the submission stage.

If your submission is accepted, you can have your abstract published in the conference proceedings. In this case, your abstract must conform to the official “ACM Primary Article Template”, which can be obtained from the ACM Proceedings Template page. If you are using LaTeX, please use the “sigconf” option, as well as the “review” option, to produce line numbers for easy reference by the reviewers. To do so, please include the following LaTeX code at the start of your document:


\acmConference\[ICSE 2024]{46th International Conference on Software Engineering}{April 2024}{Lisbon, Portugal}

If you would like to submit your tutorial for consideration for the 2024 MSR Tutorials, please submit it at

Evaluation Criteria

The submissions will be evaluated by the two tutorial track co-chairs. We will assess the relevance and clarity of the problem description, the lessons learned, and the research opportunities, along with the context, in submissions from researchers.
