Important Dates:

* Paper submission: March 1, 2011

* Conference: August 30 to September 2, 2011 at Oulu, Finland


The size, complexity, and criticality of software-intensive systems 
require innovative and economic approaches to development and evolution. 
In today's competitive world software quality is a key to success and 
stability of organizations. Software process and product improvement 
(SPPI) aims at significantly increasing both the quality of 
software-intensive systems and the productivity of software development.

The SPPI track will bring together researchers and practitioners to 
share SPPI innovations and experiences. The track is an integral part of 
the 37th Euromicro Conference on Software Engineering and Advanced 
Applications (SEAA) 2011.


Suggested topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

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

In particular, we encourage submissions demonstrating the benefits or 
limitations of SPPI approaches through case studies, experiments, and 
quantitative data.


The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society.

Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication 
in a special issue of the Journal of Systems Architecture (Elsevier).
