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 43rd Euromicro Conference on Software Engineering and Advanced Applications (SEAA) 2017.
The submission of tool demo papers (describing a tool useful in the context of software management) and poster papers (describing ongoing research and exciting new research projects) is also encouraged.
Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
Open source software and software quality
In particular, we encourage submissions demonstrating the benefits or limitations of SPPI approaches through case studies, experiments, and quantitative data.
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=seaa2017.
It is planned to select best papers among all tracks of SEAA and present them with an award.
