27th International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering, Ottawa, Canada, Oct 23-27, 2016
The annual International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering (ISSRE 2016) is focused on innovative techniques and tools for assessing, predicting, and improving the reliability, safety, and security of software products. ISSRE also emphasizes industrial relevance, rigorous empirical studies and experience reports on existing software systems.
The main research track at ISSRE 2016 is soliciting original, unpublished research papers in three categories: (1) full research (regular) papers, (2) practical experience reports, and (3) wild and provocative ideas (WAP) papers. Papers will be assessed with criteria appropriate to each category. ISSRE looks for works exploring new territory, continuing a significant research, or reflecting on practical experience.
While full research manuscripts should explore a specific technology problem and propose a complete solution to it, with extensive experimental results, practical experience reports are expected to provide an in-depth exposition of practitioner experiences and empirical studies. On the other hand, WAP papers are expected to present either work currently in progress or less developed but highly innovative ideas related to areas relevant to ISSRE, aiming at inspiring discussion among conference attendees and getting people thinking about open research challenges.
