SPPI – Software Process and Product Improvement

August 28-30, 2019

Important Dates:

  • Abstract submission to tracks and sessions: March 1, 2019
  • Paper submission to tracks and sessions: March 15, 2019
  • Notification of accepted papers: May 6, 2019
  • Camera-ready paper due: June 3, 2019

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) 2019.

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, 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 (max 8 pages). Submission will be handled via EasyChair (; please find general submission information for SEAA on the conference homepage (

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).
