Conference Focus

Process in Action

Confirmed Keynote Speakers
Bill Curtis, CAST Software, Ft Worth TX
James Herbsleb, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh PA
Lee Osterweil, University of Massachusetts, Amherst MA

Topics of Interest

ICSSP believes there is a strong need to bring practitioners and scientists together to discuss the role

of the software process in current and future development of complex systems and in rapidly changing markets.

To encourage these discussions and collaborative research, ICSSP announces the call for submissions to

ICSSP 2016 - a proven forum for the exchange of research outcomes and industrial best practices in process development.

ICSSP 2016 is seeking full and short papers addressing research and industry best practice related to:

* The tension of bridging the gap between theory and practice,
* Improving process-readiness for future software and systems development, and
* Process improvement and collaboration, and
* All crucial facets in the development and evolution of software and systems.

Specific areas of interest include but are not limited to:

* State of the art and state of the practice reports, including (but not limited to) empirical evidence of the effectiveness of Agile/Lean practices and approaches

* Process modeling, simulation and analysis, including (but not limited to) design/modeling approaches, pragmatic and formal modeling, informal interactions in formal processes, and hybrid development processes

* Agile, traditional, and hybrid processes in non-software domains (e.g., business, health care, manufacturing, trans-portation, etc.) with a demonstrated relationship to software process challenges

* Software and systems engineering processes, including (but not limited to) development and management processes for complex system evolution, scaling up/down processes for development of Cyber-Physical Systems, integration of COTS and Open Source components, development and evolution of adaptive systems, and rapid development of mission-critical and reliable systems

* Process/Project management and assessment, measurement, metrics and tools

* Distributed/Global development using Agile and large-scale processes

* Continuous process improvement in diverse areas and context

* Processes for cutting-edge software technologies, including (but not limited to) drones, ubiquitous computing, cloud computing, multi-core technologies, and cellular technologies

* Process challenges for future technologies, such as nanotechnology, constructed materials, and other software-like development activities.

* Empirical studies and experience reports, encompassing complete or parts of software and systems development lifecycle

Submission Types and Instructions


ICSSP 2016 is interested in contributions to this conversation by a wide variety of authors, researchers and thought lead-ers. We invite the following submissions:

* Full papers that reflect completed and evaluated research on novel approaches to major software and systems engineering process challenges and in-depth experience reports of significance for the community.

* Short papers that describe less complete work-in-progress research papers (e.g. Ph.D. work research) or conceptual and position papers addressing open research questions and future research directions.

Enhanced versions of the best research papers will be invited to a special issue of the Journal of Software: Evolution and Process.

All submissions must follow the ACM SIG proceedings format found at:

Full papers are limited to 10 pages and short papers to 5 pages. Papers exceeding the page limits will be

rejected with-out being looked at. Full and Short Paper submissions must be submitted through EasyChair:
