ICSSP 2019: Hybrid and Evolving Processes for Software and Systems

Software engineering continuously reinvents the way software and software intensive systems are built. Just in February 2018, Bombardier and Siemens announced significant investments in optimizing their product development processes. Tesla is trying to revolutionize the automotive market by implementing continuous delivery in safety critical systems. Appreciation of the implications of blockchain technology for software and systems processes is starting to grow. In this evolving landscape, many companies are making efforts to move towards new technologies and tools, agile principles, and continuous integration and delivery. In doing so, they find opportunity, flexibility, and strength in evolving toward hybrid processes, which are neither purely traditional nor can count as text-book agile. ICSSP 2019 will provide a special platform for research focusing on hybrid processes for software and systems development as well as the factors driving their evolution.

The ICSSP Conference Series

ICSSP 2019 is the latest in a series of conferences that have been organized by the International Software and Systems Process Association. The ISSPA has sponsored or co-sponsored seven previous ICSSP conferences, held at sites around the world, dating back to 2011. Proceedings of the ICSSP conferences are available through the ACM Digital Library. Extended versions of selected papers from several years have been published in the Journal of Software: Evolution and Process (Wiley). More information about the International Software and Systems Process Association is available here.

Call for Submissions

Software engineering continuously reinvents the way software and software intensive systems are built. Just in February 2018, Bombardier and Siemens announced significant investments in optimizing their product development processes. Tesla is trying to revolutionize the automotive market by implementing continuous delivery in safety critical systems. Appreciation of the implications of blockchain technology for software and systems processes is starting to grow. In this evolving landscape, many companies are making efforts to move towards new technologies, tools, agile principles, and continuous integration and delivery. In doing so, they find opportunity, flexibility, and strength in evolving toward hybrid processes, which are neither purely traditional nor can count as text-book agile.

ICSSP 2019 will provide a special platform for research focusing on hybrid processes for software and systems development as well as the factors driving their evolution. As a community, we ask: What will the next generation of process paradigms look like? How will they emerge from current paradigms? How will the concerns of business and system stakeholders drive and reflect the development and evolution of processes in coming years? What can our experience of change teach us? To help answer these questions, ICSSP 2019 is seeking contributions on research, practice, and compelling new ideas pertaining, but not limited, to the following topics:

  • Origins and evolution of hybrid processes
  • Specification, implementation, and operation of hybrid processes
  • Hybrid processes in systems engineering
  • Measurement for hybrid and evolving processes
  • Empirical studies and experience reports on agile or hybrid processes
  • Factors affecting selection, design, adoption, management and success of hybrid processes
  • Processes across enterprise domains and business functions
  • Integrating agile and non-agile processes
  • Experiences in combining life-cycles, functional domains, and development organizations
  • Impacts of special requirements such as high safety/reliability, globally distributed development, continuous integration, and others
  • Evolution or transformation of organizations
  • Enterprise processes for advanced development paradigms such as agile, lean, DevOps or customer-centric development
  • Data science for analysis and management of hybrid and evolving processes

All accepted papers will be included in the ICSSP Proceedings, which will be published as part of the ICSE companion proceedings.

We invite the following submissions:

Full papers (10 pages including references) that reflect completed and evaluated research on novel approaches to major software and systems engineering process challenges, especially relating to hybrid and evolving processes. Enhanced versions of the best research papers will be included in a special issue of the Journal of Software: Evolution and Process. Full papers can also be industry experience papers that report and reflect on in-depth experience, potentially including challenges, solutions, lessons, and recommendations, of significance for the research and practice communities.

Short papers (5 pages including references) that present concise research results, describe work-in-progress (e.g. Ph. D. research), or conceptual and position papers addressing new perspectives, open questions and future directions. Short papers can also be industrial papers, for instance, describing practical challenges or research needs motivated by experience.

Posters (2 pages extended abstract (including references) + DIN A2 poster draft) for research or industry experience that is not yet ready for publication as a paper, but nevertheless would be of interest to other researchers in terms of ideas, participation, or collaboration.

NEW: Additionally, for 2019 ICSSP is introducing a Doctoral Track for the first time. See the Doctoral Track tab for the call and instructions on how to submit to the ICSSP Doctoral Track.

See the Submitting tab for instructions on how to submit to the ICSSP main track. Please direct questions and comments about the main track to ICSSP2019 at EasyChair.

Call for ICSSP 2019 Doctoral Track Submissions

The International Conference on Software and Systems Process (ICSSP 2019) invites submissions for consideration for inclusion in the ICSSP 2019 Doctoral Track which will be hosted as an integral part of the main ICSSP 2019 programme. Successful submissions will present to the main ICSSP 2019 audience and as such offers an excellent opportunity for current Ph.D. candidates to present their work and elicit feedback from the ICSSP community, which is comprised of some of the leading figures in the software and systems process domain.

The goal of the ICSSP community in hosting the Doctoral Track is driven by a keen appreciation of the importance of Doctoral studies and the many benefits that expert community-led constructive feedback can deliver in terms of enhancing Doctoral work, while also supporting leading researchers of the future. Thus, the Track offers a rare opportunity to obtain valuable expert feedback and to get in touch with peer students in the same field of interest. The event is designed with 2nd/3rd year PhD candidates in mind, and particularly where initial results are not yet mature enough for a full conference paper and the work going forward may benefit from feedback from the ICSSP community. The ICSSP Doctoral Track should address topics of interest to ICSSP 2019 and also more generally, all research areas that are in scope of the ICSSP conference series. Successful submissions will be published in the main conference proceedings.

Doctoral Track papers shall present research progress to date, current work-in-progress and plan to completion. Please note that the sole author on the submission must be the doctoral candidate and that advisor(s) should be noted immediately below the author details. Submissions should address the following concerns:

  • Motivation: describe the problem that you want to address and briefly summarize existing approaches along with their deficiencies.

  • Objectives: outline the key objectives of your PhD research and argue how achieving them will address the problem outlined in the motivation.

  • Methodology: identify what methodology you will adopt to meet the objectives of your project. Clearly state on what existing works your work will build.

  • Research challenges: outline the technical, methodological, conceptual, or other hurdles faced in completing the research.

  • Research Plan: describe what preliminary results – if any – you have already achieved and summarize your plans for future work. Please add a rough schedule that allows to judge whether your research plan is feasible.

Authors of selected submissions will be required to produce and present a Poster to reflect their ICSSP 2019 Doctoral Track paper, which will be displayed alongside the main ICSE 2019 Posters. Details on poster formats will be provided in due course.

Note: All important information specific to the Doctoral Track can be found on this page. Some of this information differs from the corresponding items for the Main Track.

Preconditions for Submission

As with the main ICSSP conference, all submissions must comply with the ACM and IEEE policies on authorship and publication. These include:

Note that submitted papers must reflect the original work of the authors, the authors must be entitled to publish the work, the work must not have been published previously in a refereed or formally reviewed publication, and the work must not be under review or in press elsewhere while under review for the ICSSP Doctoral Track, among other provisions.

How to Submit

Submissions to the ICSSP 2019 Doctoral Track must be up to a maximum of 4 pages in length. Papers not adhering to this page length requirement will not be admitted to the review process. Page limits include all text, figures, tables, references, and appendices. All submissions must be in English.

Important: ICSSP is NOT following a double-blind reviewing process, so author name(s) and affiliation(s) should appear beneath the title of a submission. (This is different from the policy followed by ICSE and some other co-located events.)

Submissions must conform to the IEEE Conference Proceedings Formatting Guidelines (title in 24pt font and full text in 10pt type, LaTEX users must use \documentclass[10pt,conference]{IEEEtran} without including the compsoc or compsocconf option).

Submissions must be made through the ICSSP submission site on EasyChair prior to the submission deadline. Be sure to direct your submissions to the Doctoral Track and select “Student doctoral paper” when uploading your submission.

Authors of accepted papers shall prepare a final camera-ready version of the paper, taking into account all feedback from reviewers, and formatted according to the guidelines above.

Requirement for Letter of Recommendation

Each student submission must be supported by a letter of recommendation from the student’s research advisor(s). The letter of recommendation should ideally be brief, indicating that the student will be in a position to attend and present at the conference if their submission is successful, and including an assessment of the current status of the research, including an expected date for the dissertation’s filing (which may be approximate). Note that letters may be shared with reviewers of the submission but will generally be kept confidential.

Letters of recommendation must also be submitted through the ICSSP submission site on EasyChair prior to the submission deadline. Be sure to direct your submissions to the Doctoral Track and select “Advisor letter of recommendation” when uploading your letter. The letter of recommendation must be received by the submission deadline. Submissions without a supporting letter of recommendation will not be reviewed.

Requirement to Register, Attend and Present

If a submission is accepted, the doctoral candidate must register for and attend the conference and present the paper in person. Failure to meet this requirement may result in the paper being withdrawn from the program and proceedings.

Review Process

Each submission will be reviewed by at least two Doctoral Track Committee members. Submissions will be evaluated based on their relevance, the motivation and quality of the proposed research, as well as the suitability of the chosen methodology. The potential for students to benefit from participation in the Track may also be considered in making the final selection of accepted papers.
