SM - Software management (Track)

Research in Software Management has far-reaching boundaries and must adapt to diverse software contexts. To satisfy the need a number of concepts, models and measures developed over decades of exploration of complex business, organizational as well as engineering environments. The researchers in software management are expected to establish unique connections among diverse disciplines to find resolutions for the challenges faced by the managers of software systems. The interdisciplinary nature of the solution approaches requires utilization of different research methodologies, both quantitative and qualitative. The development of new software measures, tools and methods requires adaptation mechanisms for their deployment in acquisition, development, maintenance and operation of software systems.

The Software Management Track is organized as part of Euromicro SEAA for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss new ideas, innovations, trends, and experiences in diverse boundaries. In particular, we encourage submissions demonstrating the potential of new approaches by means of empirical studies.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following knowledge areas:

  • Software management tools
  • Software project planning
  • Software measurement/estimation
    • Size/effort/cost
    • Productivity analysis
  • Project monitoring and control
  • Configuration management
  • Risk management
  • Human resource management / peopleware
  • Communications management
  • Project evaluation
  • Contract management
  • Subcontract management
  • Customer-contractor relationship management
  • Software maintenance measurement and management

The Paper submission system and further instructions are available at the submission page. Accepted papers will be included in the proceedings, published by the Conference Publishing Services (CPS). The proceedings of the conference will be submitted to Xplore and CSDL.

Authors of the best papers will be invited to revise and submit extended versions of their papers for publication in the International Journal of Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering (IJSEKE).
