Important Dates:

* Paper submission: March 1, 2011
* Notification of accepted papers: April 15, 2011
* Camera-ready paper due: June 1, 2011
* Conference: August 30 to September 2, 2011 at Oulu, Finland


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 37th Euromicro Conference on Software Engineering and Advanced Applications (SEAA) 2011.


Suggested topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

* Organizational and business views on process improvement
* Value-based software engineering
* Software process improvement and process standards
* Process modelling, composition, and enactment
* Quantitative models for development processes and products
* Process simulation
* Global software engineering
* Open source software and software quality
* Agile and lean development
* Software reuse, product lines, and software ecosystems
* Product management
* Dependability, safety, security, or usability
* Quality assurance, inspections, testing
* Software evolution
* Innovative approaches to software development
* Empirical studies and experimental approaches

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


The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society.

Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of the Journal of Systems Architecture (Elsevier).
