CALL FOR PAPERS & TALKS

Release engineering deals with all activities in between
regular development and actual usage of a software product
by the end user, i.e., integration, build, test execution,
packaging and delivery of software. Although research on
this topic goes back for decades, the increasing
heterogeneity and variability of software products along
with the recent trend to reduce the release cycle to days or
even hours starts to question some of the common beliefs and
practices of the field.

RELENG 2013 is a full-day workshop that aims to provide a
highly interactive forum for researchers and practitioners
to interact and address the challenges of, find solutions
for and share experiences with release engineering, and to
build connections between the various communities. The
workshop will consist of a keynote, practitioner talks,
paper presentations, working groups and a fishbowl panel for
semi-structured group discussions. The keynote, presented by
an industrial release engineer, will set the stage for the
rest of the workshop, introducing the challenges of modern
companies related to release engineering.

In an effort to engage with practitioners, one of the
co-organizers is a release engineer at Mozilla and one third
of the PC consists of release engineers, so we guarantee
that each paper or abstract submission receives at least one
review from a practitioner.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Best practices for code movement (branching
and integration)
* Continuous integration and testing
* Build and configuration of software
* Build system maintenance
* Testing and reporting infrastructures
* Package and dependency management
* Legal signoff and bill-of-materials
* Delivery and deployment of software
* Code signing and certificate management
* Continuous delivery, deployment, installation and
software update
* Cloud provisioning and management
* Interaction with app stores
* Principles and automated techniques for release planning
* Release engineering for product lines
* Devops & interaction with regular development,
maintenance, end user, etc.
* Large-scale build and test farms
* Multi-platform build and test


SUBMISSIONS

The following types of submissions are sought:

* Technical Papers (4 pages) should identify challenges,
discuss opposing viewpoints, outline processes, or present
solutions related to various aspects of release engineering.
These papers will be published in the electronic ICSE
workshop proceedings.

* Talk Abstracts (500 words) are only open to practitioners
and should describe, in 500 words or less, a talk (15-30
minutes in length) on a key aspect of release engineering.
These talks should be primarily experience-based and should
be used as a means of communicating challenges that are in
need of research, or possible techniques that should be
analyzed in more detail on other systems.

Accepted papers will be published in the workshop
proceedings as part of the ICSE Companion Volume. Their
authors will be invited to present their work during the
workshop.

Submissions must be uploaded online to the workshop's
submission web site:
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=releng2013
and adhere to the IEEE two-column proceedings format:
http://2013.icse-conferences.org/content/submission-guidelines
