About The Workshop and Topics
This workshop extends discussion of software quality issues in the modern software development processes. It covers all the aspects of process and product quality, quality assurance and standards, quality planning, quality control and software quality challenges. It also covers the frontier issues and trends for achieving the quality objectives. It includes quality management process, role of software metrics, predictor metrics and control metrics, role of measurement in accessing the quality and limitations.
Topics include (related to quality issues) but not limited to:
1. Software development fundamentals,
2. Extreme Programming (XP), Agile, Scrum,
3. Software requirements techniques,
4. Software testing & QA fundamentals,
5. Software testing models and approaches,
6. Software testing tools and frameworks,
7. Software test design,
8. Types of software maintenance,
9. Software maintenance process models,
10. Software maintenance standards,
11. Software maintenance tools
12. Software Reviews (SR)
13. Software Metrics (SM)
14. Software Process Assessment (SPA)
15. Software Process Improvement (SPI)
16. Software Standardization and Certification
SQ: 2012 invites you to submit your work that describes original and significant contribution in all above mentioned area of software engineering processes. The paper submitted to SQ’2012 must not be submitted elsewhere either in conference or journal. Papers selected after peer review will be included in the conference proceedings and presented orally at the conference.
All contributions will be peer reviewed and will be judged on their quality and relevance. The accepted papers for SQ 2012 will be published in Proceedings of ICCSA by Springer in Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Please note that one of the author’s of the accepted paper must register for the conference and should present the paper in conference. The selected, extended and modified version of accepted paper will also be invited for the publication in a reputed International Journal. `
Special Issues and papers of SQ 2012:
In several countries the conference papers are not considered in evaluation of academic performances. In this point of, we have decided to publish the extended version of all presented papers in SQ 2012 in special issues of several international journals. Up to two papers from Spanish speaking authors will be published as extended version in REICIS (www.ati.es/reicis, the unique journal in Spanish on Software Quality and Engineering in Spanish, indexed in Latindex, Redalyc, ICYT, DOAJ, e-revistas, Ulrich, etc.) and others will be invited to publish their paper in another international journal.
The best quality papers will be selected for an ISI SCIE indexed journal (pending approval), the papers related to Open Source Software and Processes, will be selected for International Journal of Open Source Software and Processes (IJOSSP) (IGI Global,USA) and remaining papers will be accomodated in an international journal : NJTR (an Official Journal of Fededral University of Technology). We are highly thankful to the Management/Editorial committee of all these journals for accepting the special issues.
Please submit your paper through ICCSA 2012 conference web-site.
