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

August 28-30, 2019

Important Dates:

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

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 2019 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 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).
