The annual International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering (ISSRE) is focused on innovative techniques and tools for assessing, predicting, and improving the reliability, safety, and security of software products. ISSRE will be celebrating its 3th edition in Wuhan, China, and will continue to emphasize scientific methods, industrial relevance, rigorous empirical validation and shared value of practical tools and experiences as paper selection criteria.
Topics of Interest
Topics of interest include development, analysis methods and models throughout the software development lifecycle, and are not limited to:
- Primary dependability attributes (i.e., security, safety, maintainability) impacting software reliability
- Secondary dependability attributes (i.e., survivability, resilience, robustness) impacting software reliability
Reliability threats, i.e. faults (defects, bugs, etc.), errors, failures
- Reliability means (fault prevention, fault removal, fault tolerance, fault forecasting)
- Metrics, measurements and threat estimation for reliability prediction and the interplay with safety/security
- Reliability of software services
- Reliability of open source software
- Reliability of Software as a Service (SaaS)
- Reliability of software dealing with Big Data
- Reliability of model-based and auto-generated software
- Reliability of software within specific types of systems (e.g., autonomous and adaptive, green and sustainable, mobile systems)
- Reliability of software within specific technological spaces (e.g., Internet of Things, Cloud, Semantic Web/Web 3.0, Virtualization, Blockchain)
- Normative/regulatory/ethical spaces pertaining to software reliability
- Societal aspects of software reliability
Information to Authors
The research track at ISSRE 2021 is soliciting original, unpublished research papers in three categories: (1) full research regular (REG) papers, (2) practical experience reports (PER), and (3) tools and artifact (TAR) papers. Papers will be assessed with criteria appropriate to each category. ISSRE looks for original research exploring new scientific ideas, contributing new evidence to established research directions, or reflecting on practical experience.
Submissions can be made in one of the following categories (authors are required to indicate the category as part of the paper's title).
- REG papers: 10 pages + 2 pages (for references alone).
- PER papers: 10 pages + 2 pages (for references alone).
- TAR papers: 6 - 10 pages (with references).
Workshop and tutorial proposals are also welcome
