The 31st International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering (ISSRE 2020)

!!! Notice !!! (28/05/2020)




The Organizing Committee and the Steering Committee of ISSRE 2020 are closely following the worldwide situation regarding COVID-19. Because the wellbeing of everyone in the ISSRE community is our first and only guidance, and considering the information from national and international bodies, such as the World Health Organization, a decision has been made to move ISSRE 2020 into a full online conference experience.

It is time to innovate! We are analyzing multiple alternative formats for running the conference, trying to put together a number of original and creative presentation and interaction modalities for the different tracks of ISSRE. We are working towards making the conference a great experience for attendees, while greatly reducing the registration costs. 

We would like to invite everyone in our  community to send contributions to the ISSRE tracks. The selection processes will run as planned and timely publication of the accepted papers in the proceedings are assured. We will keep you informed of future decisions.


Welcome to the premier IEEE Computer Society conference on Software Systems Reliability

On behalf of the conference Organizing Committee, we extend you a warm welcome to the 31st ISSRE, to be held in Coimbra, Portugal. We look forward for a conference filled with ideas from industry and academia.

The annual 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. ISSRE will be organizing its 31st edition 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 best Industry-Academia Software Engineering Conference

ISSRE boasts the largest industry participation among advanced technical conferences. Architects, QA leads, project manager,s and researcher can select from a large set of talks and never see each other at the conference! This is the perfect training opportunity for senior technical staff.
