SWQD 2021 : Software Quality Days 2021
Conference Series : Software Quality. Process Automation in Software Development
Call For Papers
+++++++ CALL FOR PAPERS +++++++
The 13th Software Quality Days (SWQD) conference and tools fair – one of the largest software quality conferences in Europe - will bring together researchers and practitioners from business, industry, and academia working on quality assurance and quality management for software engineering and information technology.
In 2021 the SWQD conference hosts the 10th scientific program on research and industry experience. The guiding topic for 2021 will be “Future Perspectives on Software Engineering Quality”
++ MAIN SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM ++
High software and systems quality are success-critical factors in engineering practices and refer to product, process, and service quality. However, quality attributes have to be embodied within individual phases of software and systems development.
In distributed engineering environments, where various stakeholders coming from heterogeneous disciplines have to collaborate and interact efficiently. Additional quality attributes with focus on collaboration and data exchange apply. Mobile environments typically refer to product quality and include quality requirements regarding usability, interaction, safety and security. Emerging trends in the area of Big Data can focus on various quality aspects such as (a) how to embody and assure quality in Big Data application or (b) how to use Big Data in context of quality assurance activities such as testing.
Following the guiding topic we welcome contributions related to software and systems quality in context of distributed and mobile environments.
Topics of interest for research and industrial experience paper include but are not limited to
+ System and software quality management methods
+ Improvement of software development methods and processes
+ Testing and quality assurance of software and software-intensive systems
+ Process and quality assurance automation
+ Requirements Engineering and Management
+ Project and Risk Management
+ Effort and quality estimation
+ Metrics (product, process, project)
+ Domain specific quality issues such as embedded, medical, automotive systems
+ Novel trends in software quality
+ Crowdsourcing in Software Engineering
+ Quality assurance for Big Data applications.
+ Using Big Data for quality assurance activities.

++ PAPER SUBMISSION INFORMATION ++
The scientific program of SWQD 2021 accepts two categories of conference submissions. In both categories, papers with practical relevance and already conducted practical evaluation will be preferred.
The SWQD 2021 conference will provide best paper awards in both categories, i.e., technical research papers and industrial experience papers.
Publication of Papers with Springer LNBIP
The scientific program papers will be rigorously peer-reviewed for publication in the well known research publication series Springer LNBIP.
+ Full papers should be 15-20 pages (in Springer LNBIP proceedings format) and include an abstract of up to 150 words.
+ Short Papers should be 8-12 pages (in Springer LNBIP proceedings format - see the LNBIP Website for author instructions).
The language of the scientific program is English.
All scientific program contributions will be reviewed by the international Program Committee on their scientific merit and relevance to the conference topics and may be accepted as regular or short papers. Accepted papers will be included in the proceedings, published by Springer LNBIP (abstracted/ indexed in ISI Proceedings, DBLP, EI and Scopus), and the Springer Digital library.
If accepted, papers must be personally presented at the Software Quality Days 2021 Conference by the author or one of the co-authors. The first presenting author can participate free of charge at the two conference days. Additional authors/presenters can participate at discounted partner fee.
