Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies in Software Engineering (SMSE)

August 26-28, 2020

Important Dates:

  • Abstract submission to tracks and sessions: March 16, 2020 (AoE)
  • Paper submission to tracks and sessions: April 13, 2020 (AoE) (Extended)
  • Notification of accepted papers: May 18, 2020 (AoE)
  • Camera-ready paper due: June 21, 2020 (AoE)

Motivation: Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies have become an important and phenomenal research method in software engineering in the recent decade. A Systematic literature review is a form of secondary study that uses a well-defined methodology to identify, analyse and interpret all available evidence related to a specific research question in a way that is unbiased and (to a degree) repeatable. A Mapping study is a broad review of primary studies in a specific topic area which aims to identify what evidence is available on the topic. To encourage the submission of Systematic literature studies, the SMSE track at SEAA 2020 will bring together researchers and practitioners to share their results and experiences in this area.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

  • Organizational and business views on process improvement
  • Value-based software engineering
  • Global software engineering
  • Quality assurance, inspections, testing
  • Software process improvement and process standards
  • Process modelling, composition, and enactment
  • Process simulation
  • Product management
  • Quantitative models for development processes and products
  • Software architecture
  • Dependability, safety, security, or usability
  • Open source software and software quality
  • Agile and lean development
  • Software reuse, product lines, and software ecosystems
  • Innovative approaches to software development
  • Software evolution
  • Empirical studies and experimental approaches

Furthermore, papers on methodological issues and tool support for Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies are very welcome.

The conference proceedings in the last years have been published by the IEEE Computer Society. The format is the IEEE two-column proceedings format (8 pages for full papers and 4 pages for short papers).

Submission Guidelines: SEAA 2020 encourages the submission of full research papers (maximum 8 pages), short papers and tool demo papers (maximum 4 pages), and posters. Papers follow a single-blinded reviewing process and must contain original unpublished work, describe significant novel contributions, and provide evidence on the validation of results. In particular, reports on industrial applications are welcome.

Submissions URL: (choose Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies in Software Engineering track when submitting)

Conference Publishing Services (CPS) will publish accepted papers in the conference proceedings and the proceedings will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital library and indexing services. A special issue of a journal is planned to which extended version of best papers will be invited.

Please note that it is planned to select best papers among all tracks of SEAA and present them with an award. A selection of best papers will be invited to submit extended versions for tentative publication in a requested Special Issue of a Journal (under negotiation).
