                                   CALL FOR PAPERS SESoS 2018:
     the 6th International Workshop on Software Engineering for Systems-of-Systems
                      at ICSE 2018 http://2018.icse-conferences.org/
                            May 29 2018, Gothenburg, Sweden

  Systems-of-Systems (SoS) have become increasingly complex  and are
frequently used in highly distributed, dynamic, and open
  environments. SoS have emerged as a new class of evolving  software
systems, where constituent systems (themselves systems
  in their own right) work cooperatively in order to fulfill specific
missions. SoS are characterized by managerial and
  operational independence, geographic distribution, evolutionary
development, and creation of emergent behavior. These
  characteristics have therefore raised substantial challenges to
software engineering researchers and practitioners. SoS is
  becoming a hotspot, from both the research and the industrial
viewpoints, in particular, related to crucial classes of
  applications such as safetycritical or mission-critical  SoS.
Furthermore, SoS are increasingly involved in applications
  that address societal needs such as environmental monitoring,
distributed energy grids management, emergency coordination and
  crisis management, global traffic control, and smart cities. In this
context, the research topic of software engineering for SoS
  needs to receive more attention and research efforts,  considering
that the software part of SoS is becoming
  increasingly larger and more complex. Software engineering theories
and tools are needed to adequately design, implement,
  operate, and even evolve such dynamic, complex  software-intensive
SoS.. This workshop series is the first that
  addresses specifically this new perspective. The main goal of SESoS is
to provide a forum for software engineering researchers
  and practitioners to exchange ideas and experiences, analyze research
and development issues, discuss promising solutions,
  and propose inspiring visions for the future.

The workshop will focus on discussing and establishing the foundations
for the SoS Software Engineering domain, to
pave the way for a more structured community effort. For this, the
workshop will focus on the following (and similar) themes:

* SoS Analysis & Architecture
* Requirements engineering
* Architectural description
* Architectural evaluation
* Architectural evolution
* SoS Model-Based Engineering
   * Modeling and simulation
   * Model driven engineering
   * Models at runtime
* SoS Construction and Evolution
   * Techniques and technologies
   * Service-orientation
   * Component frameworks
   * Evolutionary development
* SoS Experience
   * Industrial perspectives
   * Successful case studies
* SoS General Issues
   * Characteristics of SoS
   * Quality in SoS
* SoS development processes
   * Acquisition and project management
   * Verification and validation of SoS
* Future perspective, challenges, and directions of SoS research and/or

Two types of submissions are invited:
* Regular paper (up to eight pages): sound technical contributions from
both academia and industry; and
* Position paper (up to four pages): new ideas, positions, or
perspectives of research that are not fully validated.
All papers submitted to the workshop must be unpublished original work
and must not be simultaneously under review or submitted elsewhere.
All papers will be judged on the basis of their clarity, relevance,
originality, and contribution.
All submissions must be in English, formatted according to the ICSE 2018
Format and Submission Guidelines and submitted in either PDF or
Postscript format through online upload to the workshop submission
website at: http://sesos2018.systems-of-systemsengineering.org

The accepted papers will be published in the electronic ICSE Companion
Proceedings in both ACM Digital Library and IEEE Digital Library.
SESoS is technically co-sponsored by ACM SIGSOFT and ACM SIGPLAN.
Previous SESoS editions were technically co-sponsored by ACM SIGSOFT and
Special Issue in an indexed international journal is planned for
publishing extended versions of a slection of best papers.

Submission deadline: Feb. 05, 2018
Notification: Mar. 05, 2018
Camera-ready copy: Mar. 19, 2018
Workshop date: May (day), 2018
