Description


Welcome to the web site of the 25th International Conference on Program Comprehension. The International Conference on Program Comprehension (ICPC) is the principal venue for works in the area of program comprehension, and it promises to provide a quality forum for researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, and government to present and to discuss state-of-the-art results and best practices in the field of program comprehension.

Research papers will be presented in a Technical Research Track, Early Research Achievement Track and Industry Track. Live presentations of academic prototypes and industry tools will be presented in an interactive Tool Demo Track. The best Technical Research Track papers at ICPC 2017 will be invited to be revised and extended for consideration in a special issue of the Empirical Software Engineering (EMSE) journal by Springer. Details, including Topics of Interest, can be found in the Call for papers .
