Call For Papers

13th International Conference on Software Reuse
18-21 June 2013
Pisa, Italy

Call for papers, tutorials, workshops, doctoral symposium, tool demonstrations.

“Safe and Secure Reuse”

For decades the International Conference on Software Reuse (ICSR) has been the premier event in the field of software reuse research and technology. The theme of ICSR13 is “Safe and Secure Reuse.” Although reuse has been routinely practiced in many domains for decades, its take-up has been slow in mission-critical domains due to real and perceived problems in guaranteeing safety and security. But that is changing as practitioners and researchers in these domains are seeking to reap the economic and quality benefits of systematic reuse. In the automotive domain, the AUTOSAR architecture promises to deliver wide-scale component reuse. In the aeronautics and space domains, standards efforts are seeking approaches for component level certification. Builders of mission-critical systems everywhere are looking to COTS to save on costs, but need to ensure the safety and security of those systems.

The development of mission-critical systems has led to many important issues in combination with software reuse. These include, but are not limited to:

• Guaranteeing safety and security related properties of reusable components
• Reuse architectures in safety critical domains
• Security hazards arising from use of COTS
• Certification issues for mission-critical reusable components

Beyond those new challenges for software reuse, we solicit submissions dealing with all aspects of software reuse, including, but not limited to the following ones:

• Domain analysis and modeling
• Asset search and retrieval
• Architecture-centric approaches to reuse
• Component-based reuse
• COTS-based development
• Generator-based techniques
• Domain-specific languages
• Testing in the context of software reuse
• Aspect-oriented techniques
• Model-driven development
• Reuse of non-code artifacts (process, experience, etc.)
• Reengineering for reuse
• Software product line techniques
• Quality-aspects of reuse
• Economic models of reuse
• Benefit and risk analysis, scoping
• Legal and managerial aspects of reuse
• Transition to software reuse
• Industrial experience with reuse
• Light-weight approaches
• Software evolution and reuse
• Agile development
• Large-scale systems
• Model-driven development
• Service-oriented architectures
• Mobile and ubiquitous applications

The proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer Verlag in its Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Co-located workshops will focus on discussion of leading edge topics in mission-critical reuse and other current themes. Tutorials will bring researchers and practitioners up to date on the best practices of software reuse. The doctoral symposium will give students an opportunity to present and discuss ongoing research. Tool demonstrations will offer participants an overview of current commercial tools for mission-critical and other reuse-related environments.

The conference will be held at the National Research Centers in Pisa, Italy, and will take place immediately after the spectacular Luminara river lighting festival, currently under candidacy as a UNESCO World Heritage event.
