SWQD 2015 : SWQD 2015 - 7th Software Quality Days - Scientific Program
Conference Series : Software Quality. Process Automation in Software Development
Call For Papers
*** UPDATE: Paper Submission deadline extended to June 30th, 2014 ****
*** UPDATE: Special Session on Automated Quality Assurance - see below for details ***
The 7th Software Quality Days (SWQD) conference and tools fair – one of the largest software quality conferences in Europe - will bring together researchers and practitioners from business, industry, and academia working on quality assurance and quality management for software engineering and information technology.
In 2015 the SWQD conference hosts the 4th scientific program on research and industry experience. The guiding topic for 2015 will be “Software and Systems Quality in Distributed and Mobile Environments”.
High software and systems quality are success-critical factors in engineering practices and refer to product, process, and service quality. However, quality attributes have to be embodied within individual phases of software and systems development.
In distributed engineering environments, where various stakeholders coming from heterogeneous disciplines have to collaborate and interact efficiently. Additional quality attributes with focus on collaboration and data exchange apply. Mobile environments typically refer to product quality and include quality requirements regarding usability, interaction, safety and security.
Following the guiding topic we welcome contributions related to software and systems quality in context of distributed and mobile environments. Topics of interest for research and industrial experience paper include but are not limited to
+ System and software quality management methods
+ Improvement of software development methods and processes
+ Testing and quality assurance of software and software-intensive
+ Process and quality assurance automation
+ Requirements Engineering and Management
+ Project and Risk Management
+ Effort and quality estimation
+ Metrics (product, process, project)
+ Domain specific quality issues such as embedded, medical, automotive systems
+ Novel trends in software quality
Technical Research and Industrial Experience Papers
The scientific program of SWQD 2015 accepts two categories of conference submissions, i.e., technical research papers and industrial experience papers. In both categories papers with practical relevance and already conducted practical evaluation will be preferred.
The SWQD 2015 conference will provide best paper awards in both categories, i.e., technical research papers and industrial experience papers.
SPECIAL SESSION on Automated Quality Assurance
Research in software quality assurance (SQA) is more and more driven by automating SQA tasks. For example, researchers work on automating test generation and execution, detecting clones or predicting fault-prone components. These activities are not well integrated, however. This is why we plan this special session with the aim to discuss the connections in automating quality assurance. The general requirements on the submitted papers are the same as on the technical research papers but they need to relate to the topic of the special session.
Special Session Chair: Stefan Wagner, University of Stuttgart, Germany
The language of the scientific program is English.

Publication of Papers with Springer LNBIP:
The scientific program papers will be rigorously peer-reviewed for publication in the well known research publication series Springer LNBIP.
+ Full papers should be 15-20 pages (in Springer LNBIP proceedings format) and include an abstract of up to 150 words.
+ Short Papers should be 8-12 pages (in Springer LNBIP proceedings format - see the LNBIP Website for author instructions).
All scientific program contributions will be reviewed by the international Program Committee on their scientific merit and relevance to the conference topics and may be accepted as regular or short papers. Accepted papers will be included in the proceedings, published by Springer LNBIP (abstracted/ indexed in ISI Proceedings, DBLP, EI and Scopus), and the Springer Digital library.
