SMSE Special Session

Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies in Software Engineering (SMSE)
Special Session inside the SPPI Track

Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies have become an important and phenomenal research method in software engineering in the recent decade. A Systematic literature review  is a form of secondary study that uses a well-defined methodology to identify, analyse and interpret all available evidence related to a specific research question in a way that is unbiased and (to a degree) repeatable. A Mapping study is a broad review of primary studies in a specific topic area which  aims to identify what evidence is available on the topic.

To encourage the submission of Systematic literature studies, SEAA 2015 will have a special session entitled: Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies in Software Engineering Session (SMSE Session).

SMSE Session welcomes submissions of Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies within the scope of the Software Process and Product Improvement – SPPI Track.

The SMSE Session will bring together researchers and practitioners to share their results and experiences with Systematic Secondary Studies. The special session is an integral part of the SPPI Track / 41th Euromicro Conference on Software Engineering and Advanced Applications (SEAA) 2015.

Suggested topics of interest include Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies for all topics of the SPPI Track – Software Process and Product Improvement:

  • Organizational and business views on process improvement
  • Value-based software engineering
  • Global software engineering
  • Quality assurance, inspections, testing
  • Software process improvement and process standards
  • Process modeling, composition, and enactment
  • Process simulation
  • Product management
  • Quantitative models for development processes and products
  • Dependability, safety, security, or usability
  • Open source software and software quality
  • Agile and lean development
  • Software reuse, product lines, and software ecosystems
  • Innovative approaches to software development
  • Software evolution
  • Empirical studies and experimental approaches
