To consider families of software-intensive systems as a conceptual whole rather than treating each system individually has been suggested a long time ago. Based on this idea, Software Product Lines (SPLs) (e.g., with systematic reuse and actively managed sets of features) promise considerable benefits when creating and maintaining software-intensive systems such as increased productivity and reduced time-to-market. SPLs have been successfully applied in many industrial domains.
Despite these promising results many challenges remain, in particular when SPLs are applied in industrial projects of realistic scale and complexity, when SPLs are part of larger systems-of-systems or when SPLs expand beyond organizational boundaries and transition to software ecosystems.
The track on Software Product Lines and Software Ecosystems at SEAA 2017 aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners to discuss, address, and overcome current issues in Software Product Line Engineering and Software Ecosystems. By combining perspectives from both research and industrial practice we aim to address scientific problems of practical relevance and realistic complexity.
SPLSEco welcomes original unpublished work related to Software Product Lines, Software Ecosystems as well as System-of-Systems and Ultra-large Scale Systems. In particular, we encourage research papers based on industrial experience and empirical studies. Topics include, but are not limited to:
The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society. The format is the IEEE two-column proceedings format (max 8 pages). Submission will be handled via EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dsd2017.
