Topics



            As in previous ICSSEA Conferences, any topic in connection with software engineering & systems engineering is eligible. However, the following topics, viewed through the perspective of systems and services integration and interoperability, will be particularly appreciated:

 • Architectures: composition, orchestration, semantically-enabled SOA, ontology-based technologies… 

• Complex systems engineering

• Components & reusability

• Development methods: agile, lean, contract-oriented development…

• Distributed computing: service-oriented computing, grid services, Web services, mobile applications…

• Evolution: adaptability, maintainability, variability…

• Management of functional and non-functional properties: analysis & design, representation, modeling, monitoring, composition, configurability, relationship with architecture, resolution of conflicts, aspect orientation, metrics for non-functional properties, semantic issues…

• Man-system interfaces: ergonomics, interaction, cognitive engineering…

• Open source issues: architectures for seamless integration/composition, quality assurance,

• Outsourcing issues

• Process engineering with different notations: UML, DoDAF, SysML, the MDA/MDE approaches…

• Project management: conventional methods, agile approached…

• Quality control & assurance: quality assessment, testing, V&V…

• Quantitative evaluations: architecture, availability, performance, quality, reliability, safety…

• Requirements engineering

• Software platforms specific of application domains

• Systems engineering and Systems of systems

• Web engineering: design, composition, control flow, user interface migration, discovery and selection of services, ontology engineering…

            Original, unpublished papers are solicited. They may concern industrial implementations or experiments, describe significant results from ongoing projects, research results applicable to industrial applications, or deal with socioeconomic issues associated with software & systems engineering. Offerors may also propose tool demonstrations and posters presentations. All submissions should clearly describe the nature of the work to be presented, explain its contribution, highlight its novel features, and state precisely its current status.

         All types of systems are eligible: adaptive, autonomous, context-aware, distributed, embedded, grid computing, mobile, real-time, service-oriented, ubiquitous, Web-based, etc. All end-user domains and economic areas are eligible: information systems, process management, automotive, avionics, banking, defense, energy, health care, insurance, space, telecommunications, transportation, etc.
