!!! 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.


ISSRE has become over the years a forum to present the best world research in software reliability engineering, and Coimbra will be a magnificent setting to further that status. The University of Coimbra is one of the oldest Universities in Europe (established in 1289), and Coimbra is a small city built around the University, again along the European tradition of University towns. 

Coimbra is a vibrant city in the center of Portugal built around the University of Coimbra (UC) and is the home of many high-tech companies that ship software products worldwide. The historical campus has been classified as UNESCO World Heritage in 2013 under the name “Universidade de Coimbra – Alta e Sofia”. Coimbra is a fascinating destination that you should not miss! From Coimbra you can also easily reach many other fantastic places in Portugal. By train, bus, or car, one can get to Oporto, Lisbon, and many small villages in the interior of the country, where the food, the people, and the landscape will surprise you and create memories for life. 

The ISSRE 2020 conference will be held at the São Francisco Convent which is a fusion between the old and modern architecture and is an emblematic building of Coimbra landscape. 

We hope to be able to receive you here next October!
