Abstract

Systematic mapping studies are an important research method and have been used in software engineering to provide an overview of a research area by a process of classification and counting of the outputs in a particular area. They have also been used to examine the outputs found in specific publication outlets. In this paper, we report on the results of a systematic mapping study conducted to review the entire publication output of the Indian Software Engineering Conference (ISEC) series. We use the outputs of the study to present visual depictions of the nature of Indian Software Engineering academic research from 2008-2015. A second contribution of the work reports on comparison of the ISEC series with that of the pre-eminent international conference in software engineering (ICSE). We contextualise the results within the wider picture of the national Indian IT community.
