Important Dates:

  • Abstract submission to tracks and sessions: March 2, 2020

Motivation: The size, complexity, and criticality of software-intensive systems require innovative and economic approaches to development and evolution. In today's competitive world, software quality is a key to success and stability of organizations. Software process and product improvement (SPPI) aims at significantly increasing both the quality of software-intensive systems and the productivity of software development. The SPPI track will bring together researchers and practitioners to share SPPI innovations and experiences. The track is an integral part of the 45th Euromicro Conference on Software Engineering and Advanced Applications (SEAA) 2020.

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 modeling, composition, and enactment/simulation
  • Quantitative models for development processes and products
  • Essential system quality aspects, e.g., dependability, safety, security, or usability
  • Technical debt (we will have a special session on this topic)
  • Open source software and software quality
  • Agile and lean development
  • Software reuse, variability management, product lines, and software ecosystems
  • Software evolution
  • Continuous delivery/integration and DevOps, software process and product evolution with feedback from operation
  • Empirical studies and experimental approaches
  • Process improvement for innovative/emerging application areas (e.g., deep learning/AI, systems of systems, cloud/fog-based computing, big data systems, cyber-physical systems, IoT, Industry 4.0)

In particular, we encourage submissions demonstrating the benefits or limitations of SPPI approaches through case studies, experiments, and quantitative data.

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 Papers must contain original unpublished work, describe significant novel contributions, and provide evidence on the validation of results.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.

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.

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).
