The International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering (ISSRE) is focused on innovative techniques
and tools for assessing, predicting, and improving the reliability, safety, and security of software products. The
31st edition of ISSRE will be held in Coimbra, Portugal, and will continue to emphasize scientific methods,
industrial relevance, rigorous empirical validation and shared value of practical tools and experiences as paper
selection criteria.

The research track at ISSRE 2020 is soliciting original, unpublished research papers in three categories: (1) full
research regular (REG) papers, (2) practical experience reports (PER), and (3) tools and artifact (TAR) papers.
Papers will be assessed with criteria appropriate to each category. ISSRE looks for original research exploring new
scientific ideas, contributing new evidence to established research directions, or reflecting on practical experience.

REG papers should describe a novel contribution to reliability of software systems. Extensions of reliability
research into adaptive AI systems, blockchains and large sensor infrastructures are particularly welcome.
Regardless of the domain, novelty should be argued via concrete evidence and appropriate positioning within the
state of the art. REG papers are also expected to clearly explain validation process and its limitations.

PER are expected to provide an in-depth exposition of practical experiences and empirical studies collected
through the application of known research tools and methods related to ISSRE topics. PER need to identify and
discuss relevant lessons learned. The goal of PER is to offer evidence of reduced risk for future tech transition of
the same or similar technology. ISSRE strongly encourages PERs that combine the efforts of researchers and
industry practitioners. Note that negative results are specifically encouraged, for example, discussing where or
why current research cannot be applied in an industrially relevant context.

TAR papers should describe a new tool or artifact. Tool-focused TAR papers must present either a new tool, a
new tool component, or novel extensions to an existing tool. Tool-focused TAR papers should include a
description of: 1) the theoretical foundations, 2) the design and implementation concerns, such as software
architecture and core data structures, 3) experience with realistic case studies and observed advantages over
similar tools. Making the tool publicly available is strongly encouraged to allow continued evaluation process.
Artifact-focused TAR papers should cover 1) a working copy of a software and 2) experimental data sets.


== Paper Categories ==

Submissions can be made in one of the following categories
(authors must indicate the category as part of the paper’s title, for review only).

* REG papers: 10 pages + 2 pages (for references alone).
* PER papers: 10 pages + 2 pages (for references alone).
* TAR papers: 6 - 10 pages (with references).

Papers that exceed the number of pages for that submission category will be rejected without review.


== Topics of Interest ==

Topics of interest include development, analysis methods and models throughout the software development lifecycle, and are not limited to:

* Primary dependability attributes (i.e., security, safety, maintainability) impacting software reliability
* Secondary dependability attributes (i.e., survivability, resilience, robustness) impacting software reliability
* Reliability threats, i.e. faults (defects, bugs, etc.), errors, failures
* Reliability means (fault prevention, fault removal, fault tolerance, fault forecasting)
* Metrics, measurements and threat estimation for reliability prediction and the interplay with safety/security
* Reliability of software services
* Reliability of open source software
* Reliability of Software as a Service (SaaS)
* Reliability of software dealing with Big Data
* Reliability of model-based and auto-generated software
* Reliability of software in artificial intelligence based software systems
* Reliability of software within specific types of systems (e.g., autonomous, adaptive, green and sustainable, mobile systems)
* Reliability of software within specific technological spaces (e.g., Internet of Things, Cloud, Semantic Web/Web 3.0, Virtualization, Blockchain)
* Normative/regulatory/ethical spaces pertaining to software reliability
* Societal aspects of software reliability
