Software Management (SM): Measurement, Peopleware and Innovation
Technical Track

Research in Software Management has far-reaching boundaries and must adapt to diverse contexts. To address the needs of managers 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 innovative 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 the utilization of various 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 the 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 of technical research papers and experience reports demonstrating the potential of new approaches by means of empirical studies. This year we would like to emphasize research fields significantly influencing the success of software projects and software organizations, including peopleware, innovation management and software measurement.

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

  • Innovation management
  • Peopleware
  • Software measurement
  • Software management tools and techniques
  • Software project planning
  • Software estimation
  • Project monitoring and control
  • Configuration management
  • Risk management and measurement
  • Subcontract management
  • Customer-contractor relationship management
  • Software maintenance measurement and management
