The IEEE Software Technology Conference (STC) is a leading software conference that targets software practitioners from industry, government, and academia. The conference provides a forum for leading software practitioners to share opportunities, challenges, and successes. The rich exchange of ideas, technologies, data, and best practices will help practitioners lead software for business innovation, national defense, critical infrastructure, information technology, global markets, etc.

We invite you to connect with colleagues and share your knowledge, expertise, and insights in software and systems technology for meeting real world opportunities and challenges. Presenters or tutorial leaders should please submit their abstracts using this website. Presenters have the option to submit full papers instead of abstracts, and all accepted full papers will be published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
