Call For Papers


The development of online social networks are gaining ground lately with software engineers participating in different fora collaborating and exchanging ideas and expertise. Software reuse needs to utilize, but also strengthen, this new form of synergies that can be built among engineers. ICSR special theme aims to bring this aspect in software reuse by raising social-awareness, strengthening the existing platforms and tools, and utilizing the vast software information that exists in development social networks. This area has been the topic of the International Conference on Software Reuse -

The JSS special issue on Software Reuse calls for scientific contributions, and practical or industrial experience reports in any of the following areas (indicatively):

- Domain analysis and modelling
- Asset search and retrieval
- Architecture-centric reuse approaches
- Component-based reuse
- Service-oriented architectures
- Generative development
- Domain-specific languages
- Model-driven development
- Reengineering for reuse
- Software product line
- Quality assurance for software reuse
- Economic models of reuse
- Legal and managerial aspects of reuse
- Industrial experience with reuse
- Light-weight reuse approaches
- Software evolution and reuse
- Reuse for mobile and ubiquitous applications
