Call for Papers - Industry Track



The ISSRE 2020 Industry Track WILL BE ONLINE!

The Organizing Committee and the Steering Committee of ISSRE 2020 decided to move ISSRE 2020 into a full online conference experience. We are working towards making the conference a great experience for attendees, with greatly reduced and affordable registration costs.

We would like to invite you to send papers to the industry track and to give a remote talk, if the paper is accepted.



The objective of the Industry Track program is to establish an efficient dialogue between software practitioners and software engineering researchers concerning the challenges, findings (both positive and negative), encountered obstacles, and lessons learned related to software reliability. Of particular interest is information on applying novel software development, verification and validation practices in diverse lifecycle styles, industry sectors, and software types.

We aim to encourage wide industry participation

In recent years, the ISSRE industry program has expanded and has covered a wide range of topics, including cloud computing, agile development, mobile communications, defect prediction, release management, defect classification, rejuvenation, security, customer experience/satisfaction, availability, social network analysis, big data analysis, and specific reliability concerns of the transportation, aviation, healthcare, telecomm, and other industry sectors.
Industry Track papers will address the application of software engineering practices (which may include work on principles, techniques, tools, methods, processes) to a specific domain or to the development of a substantial software system. We expect Industry Track papers to be of interest to software development professionals, as well as to software reliability and software quality and process improvement groups with concrete relation to industrial problems and applications.

This year’s edition of the ISSRE Industry track will feature a

Best paper Award

The Industry program Chairs will select three candidates among top-ranked papers presenting and motivating novel and disruptive ideas that address problems afflicting industry. Selection will be based on the reviewers’ feedback, novelty and potential impact of the results.
The final selection of the best paper will be done by the audience attending the presentation of the candidate papers. Eligible papers must be (i) full papers accepted to the industry track, and (ii) co-authored by at least one industry author.

Submission guidelines and instructions

There are two different alternatives for ISSRE Industry Track submissions:

  1. Full paper submission consisting of 6 pages (including references).
  2. Short paper submission consisting of 2 pages (including references).

All the submissions will be reviewed by members of the Industry Track Program Committee. Accepted papers will be included in the ISSRE Supplemental Proceedings and submitted for publication to IEEE Xplore.
Papers must be written in English, and be formatted according to the IEEE Computer Society Format Guidelines. A paper has to include the title, the name and affiliation of each author, an abstract of up to 150 words, and up to 4 keywords. Papers that exceed the page limits specified, or are outside the scope of the symposium, or do not follow the formatting guidelines will be rejected without review.
Authors of accepted papers will have the chance to introduce their work at the ISSRE 2020 online conference. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register to the online conference and to give the remote talk, if the paper is accepted.
