Call For Papers

++ Paper Submission Deadline has been extended to June 19th, 2016 (FINAL EXTENSION) ++


The 9th 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 2017 the SWQD conference hosts the 6th scientific program on research and industry experience. The guiding topic for 2017 will be “Quality of Things - Complexity and Challenges of Software Engineering in Emerging Technologies”.

This year the main scientific program includes a session on Testing the Internet of Things (T-IoT).


++ MAIN SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM ++

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 systems
+ 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


++ SPECIAL SESSION ON TESTING THE INTERNET OF THINGS (IoT) ++

The objective of the Testing the Internet of Things track (T-IoT) is to establish a fruitful and meaningful dialog among systems practitioners and with systems engineering researchers in embedded systems (ES), cyber-physical systems (CPS), and the Internet of Things (IoT) on the challenges, obstacles, results (both good and bad), and lessons learned associated with the massive deployment of Internet of Things solutions in various safety- and security-critical environments. The T-IoT presentations will provide accounts of the application of testing and test engineering practices (which may be principles, techniques, tools, methods, processes, testing techniques etc.) to a specific domain or to the development of a significant IoT system. In particular, we are interested in new methods, experiences, best practices, etc. on how to assure the quality, safety, security, reliability, resilience and trustworthiness of IoT systems during development, for certification and deployment, and in operation and maintenance. We would like the T-IoT presentations to be of interest to system development professionals as well as to quality groups for such software-based systems.

Possible topics include (but are not limited to):

+ Risk-oriented testing, security testing, performance testing, scalability testing for IoT devices and solutions
+ Quality assurance and certification for IoT devices and solutions
+ Simulation and testing of large-scale IoT deployments
+ IoT test platforms and tools

Special Session Chair: Ina Schieferdecker, Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems FOKUS


++ COMMON PAPER SUBMISSION INFORMATION ++

The scientific program of SWQD 2017 accepts two categories of conference submissions, i.e., Technical Research Papers and Industry Experience Papers. In both categories papers with practical relevance and already conducted practical evaluation will be preferred.

The SWQD 2017 conference will provide best paper awards in two categories, i.e., technical research papers and industrial experience papers.


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.
