ISSRE-INDUSTRY 2019 : International Symposium of Software Reliability Engineering - Industry Track
Call For Papers
The objective of the Industry Track program is to establish an efficient dialogue between software practitioners and software engineering researchers concerning the challenges, findings (both positive and negative), encountered obstacles, and lessons learned on software reliability. Of particular interest is information on applying novel software development, verification and validation practices in diverse lifecycle styles, industry sectors, and software types.
The Industry Track papers and presentations will address the application of software engineering practices (which may include work on principles, techniques, tools, methods, processes) to a specific domain or to the development of a substantial software system. In particular, we are interested in techniques that increase system reliability by preventing, detecting or correcting bugs early during the development lifecycle. Also, we are interested in downstream bug metrics and prediction methods.
We expect Industry papers and presentations to be of interest to software development professionals, as well as to software quality and process improvement groups with concrete relation to industrial application.

This year’s edition of ISSRE Industry track will feature the following exciting news
Best paper Awards:
This year ISSRE will include two best paper awards given in the main industry track.
Best Practice Paper Award:
This category will award the best among the full papers accepted to appear to the ISSRE 2019 industry track. Candidates to these awards are all full papers accepted to the industry track, presenting novel ideas and related results.
Best Disruptive Paper Awards:
This category will award the most disruptive idea accepted to appear to the ISSRE 2019 Industry track. ALL papers (short, and regular papers) accepted to the industry track are eligible. Candidates to this award are those papers describing and motivating wild, novel and disruptive ideas that will address problems afflicting industry.
A special industry committee including specialists of 4 different areas (software, networks, cloud and distributed systems) will propose 2 to 3 candidates for each award. The final selection will be done by the audience attending the presentation of the candidate papers.
Birds of a feather session:
Authors of papers selected for the industry track will be invited to propose a BoF (Birds of a Feather) sessions to provide a gathering place and discussion forum on selected areas of interest. BoF sessions are meant to present papers, but to enable open, "brainstorming" forums mixing academia and industry to share their current interests, goals, technology, environment, or backgrounds. Each BoF session will include a moderator from academia.
Submission and formatting guidelines
Given the large number of high quality industry papers in the past few years and the success of the Industry track, we have created a new track of "full papers". All accepted papers will be submitted for publication to IEEE Xplore.
There are two different alternatives for ISSRE Industry Track submissions:
1. Full papers including submission consisting of 6-page papers (including references).
This submission will be reviewed by three reviewers giving feedback. Accepted papers will be submitted for publication to IEEE Xplore.
2. Short papers: including two type of submissions: i) 1 page abstract (including references) and presentation (max 20 slides), and ii) 2 pages short paper (including references).
These submissions will also undergo similar review as the 6-pages papers. Abstracts and presentations will appear in the proceedings.
Papers, presentations and abstracts (even if a one-pager) must be written in English, and be formatted according to the IEEE Computer Society Format Guidelines. Papers that exceed the page limits specified below, or are outside the scope of the symposium, or do not follow the formatting guidelines will be rejected without review.
The goal is to encourage wide industry participation.
In recent years, the ISSRE industry program has expanded and has covered a wide range of topics, including cloud computing, agile development, mobile communications, defect prediction, release management, defect classification, rejuvenation, security, customer experience/satisfaction, availability, social network analysis, big data analysis, and specific reliability concerns of the automotive, aviation, healthcare, telecomm, and other industry sectors.

All papers must be submitted electronically through the ISSRE 2019 Submission page (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=issre2019). On this page, select the track "ISSRE 2019 Industry Track", and click "Continue" to open the submission form.
The abstracts will be reviewed by the Industry Track Program Committee and the selected authors will have a chance to present a talk (20 to 30 minutes) at the ISSRE 2019 conference. At least one author must register to ISSRE and be physically on site in Berlin to present their contribution.
