SESoS 2015 - Third International Workshop on Software Engineering for Systems-of-Systems
at ICSE 2015
Florence, Italy, May 17 2015

Systems-of-Systems (SoS) have become increasingly complex and are frequently used in highly distributed, dynamic, and open environments. SoS have emerged as a new class of evolving software systems, where constituent systems (themselves systems in their own right) work cooperatively in order to fulfill specific missions. SoS are characterized by managerial and operational independence, geographic distribution, evolutionary development, and creation of emergent behavior. These characteristics have raised substantial challenges to software engineering researchers and practitioners. SoS is becoming a hotspot, from both the research and the industrial viewpoints, in particular, related to crucial classes of applications such as safety-critical or mission-critical SoS. Furthermore, SoS are increasingly involved in applications that address societal needs such as environmental monitoring, distributed energy grids management, emergency coordination and crisis management, global traffic control, and smart cities. Software engineering theories and tools are needed to adequately design, implement, operate, and even evolve such dynamic, complex software-intensive SoS. The main goal of SESoS is to provide a forum for software engineering researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas and experiences, analyze research and development issues, discuss promising solutions, and propose inspiring visions for the future.

The workshop will focus on discussing and establishing the foundations for the SoS Software Engineering domain, to pave the way for a more structured community effort. The workshop includes, but is not limited to the following topics:
- SoS Analysis & Architecture
-Requirements engineering
-Architectural description
-Architectural evaluation
-Architectural evolution
- SoS Model-Based Engineering
-Modeling and simulation
-Model driven engineering
-Models at runtime
- SoS Construction and Evolution
-Techniques and technologies
-Component frameworks
-Evolutionary development
- SoS Experience
-Industrial perspectives
-Case studies
- SoS General Issues
-Characteristics of SoS
-Quality in SoS
-SoS development processes
-Acquisition and project management
-Verification and validation of SoS
- Future perspective, challenges, and directions of SoS research and/or development

Two types of submissions are invited:
- Regular papers (up to seven pages): sound technical contributions from both academia and industry; and
- Position papers (up to four pages): new ideas, positions, or perspectives of research that are not fully validated.
All papers submitted to the workshop must be unpublished original work and must not be simultaneously under review or submitted elsewhere. All papers will be judged on the basis of their clarity, relevance, originality, and contribution.
All submissions must be in English, formatted according to the ICSE 2015 Format and Submission Guidelines and submitted in PDF format through online upload to the workshop submission website at:

Accepted papers will become part of the workshop proceedings and published in the ICSE companion proceedings.

Submission deadline: January 23, 2015
Notification: February 18, 2015
Camera-ready copy: February 27, 2015
Workshop date: May 17, 2015
