Present CFP : 2018

Following its long tradition, SOFSEM is the annual winter conference for new and original research at the forefront of computer science.

SOFSEM 2018 is devoted to leading research in the foundations of computer science, software engineering, and data and knowledge-based systems. The program will have invited and contributed talks,

A Min Tjoa (TU Wien, Austria)


- Jan van Leeuwen (Utrecht University, The Netherlands)
- Jiří Wiedermann (Academy of Sciences, Prague, Czech Republic)

- Stefan Biffl (TU Wien, Austria)

- Ladjel Bellatreche (Laboratoire du LIAS, France)

For PhD students there is:
D. STUDENT RESEARCH FORUM. The Forum gives PhD students the opportunity
to present their research and receive feedback on their projects.
Forum Chair:
- Roman Špánek (Technical University of Liberec, Czech Republic)

Proceedings will be published in the Series Lecture Notes in Computer Science of Springer Verlag.

SOFSEM 2018 solicits original research contributions in any one of its tracks
or the interface between them. Paper submission uses EasyChair, see for detailed instructions.

Software Engineering: advanced Methods, Applications, and Tools (SEMAT)

Software is the source of most of the value added in modern software-intensive systems, such as process-centered information systems, web-based systems, mobile systems, games, or intelligent technical systems.

The size, complexity, and criticality of software-intensive systems require innovative and economic approaches for their development and evolution. In today's competitive world, software quality is a key to the success and stability of organizations.

The SEMAT track presents and discusses the research of novel and innovative methods and technologies to software engineering, including both software product and development process aspects. Methods and tools that support the improvement of software processes and products aim at significantly increasing both the quality of software-intensive systems and the productivity of software development.

The SEMAT track will bring together researchers and practitioners to share SEMAT innovations and experiences.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Methods and tools for better software processes
+ Process modeling, composition, and enactment/simulation
+ Agile/lean development
+ User-centered development
+ Method engineering
+Quality assurance, inspections, testing

Software architecture of complex software-intensive systems
+ Architecture, components, services
+ Software reuse, product lines, and software ecosystems

Model-based software engineering methods and tools
+ Model-based development
+ Model transformations
+ Model versioning
+ Model and meta-model co-evolution
+ Model-based testing

Data-driven improvement of methods, models, and tools
+ Quantitative models for development processes and products
+ Continuous delivery/integration and DevOps, software process and product evolution with feedback from operation.
+ Legacy modernization/migration
+ Model mining techniques
+ Repository mining
+ Empirical studies and experimental approaches

Methods and tools for software engineering applications, including the areas
+ Process-centered information systems
+ Web-based systems
+ Mobile systems
+ Game development
+ Intelligent technical systems (Internet of Things)

In particular, we encourage submissions demonstrating the benefits or limitations of SEMAT approaches through case studies, experiments, and quantitative data.
