CFP- Special Issue on:
The Future of Software Engineering FOR/IN the Cloud - FoSECloud
Rami Bahsoon, Nour Ali, Ivan Mistrik, T.S. Mohan and Nenad Medvidović
Practitioners are very likely to beg, borrow and steal from software engineering in-the-small to benefit the case of software engineering for the ultra-large-scale, as it is the case of the cloud. Though the fundamentals of engineering software in both paradigms exhibit resemblance, software engineering for the cloud require novel approaches, which address the interplay between technical, economics-driven considerations and shifts software engineering towards a utility-based engineering for software-, infrastructure-, data storage- and/or platform- as services.
The goal of this special issue is to strengthen the cross-fertilization of advances from software engineering, services and cloud computing. The special issue aims at exploring, debating and increasing our understanding to the following: (i) how recent advances in software engineering (with an emphasis on software architectures, architecting dependable systems, self-adaptive software architectures, economics-driven software engineering, risk management, security software engineering, green software engineering and testing) can
(not) relate to the case of cloud; (ii) what are the most recent innovations, trends, results, experiences and concerns in the field that appraise the paradigm-shift in engineering software systems as cloud services or in support of cloud infrastructures; (iii) what are the open research directions for software engineering FOR the cloud?;
(iv) how the paradigm will shape the future of engineering software IN the cloud, i.e. benefiting from the cloud infrastructure, virtualization and economics of scale. The special issue aims to bridge the gap between software engineering, services, business and cloud computing communities by specifically addressing the challenges for software engineering FOR and IN the cloud.
The special will feature some invited contributions from key researchers and practitioners in cloud software engineering for road mapping directions in the field, viewpoints columns reflecting on the state-of-arts and –practice in cloud software engineering. In addition to the invited contributions, our open call solicits novel (industrial and academic) research contributions in the broad area of Cloud Software Engineering. The list of topics includes but not limited to:
