Call For Papers
The Journal of Systems and Software publishes papers covering all aspects of programming methodology, software engineering, and related hardware-software-systems issues. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, software development environments and tools, techniques for developing, validating, and maintaining software systems, software architecture and design, global software development, service orientation, agile approaches, mobile, multiprocessing, real-time, distributed, concurrent, and telecommunications systems, software metrics, reliability models for software, performance issues, and management concerns. The journal publishes research papers, state-of-the-art surveys, and reports of practical experience. All articles should consider the practical application of the idea advanced through case studies, experiments, or systematic comparisons with other approaches already in practice. Occasionally, special issues are devoted to topics of particular interest; proposals for such issues are invited.

Special Issues
Special Issue on Software Reliability
Submission Date: 2017-03-31

The special issue focuses on advanced methods and tools for enhancing, assessing and predicting the reliability, safety, and security of software products. We invite the original previously unpublished papers as well as extended versions of papers presented at the 27th Annual International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering (ISSRE 2016). Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: - Reliability, availability and safety of software systems - Verification and validation - Advanced methods for error detection, fault tolerance and debugging - Software quality, metrics and measurements, estimation and prediction of quality/reliability - Software security - Dependability, survivability and resilience of software systems - Systems (hardware + software) reliability engineering - Productivity evaluation and improvement - Services reliability engineering - Open source software reliability engineering - Supporting tools and automation - Industry best practices - Software as a Service - Virtualization and software reliability - Reliability of mobile devices and applications - Green and Sustainable Software Engineering - Reliability engineering for Big Data - Dependability aspects of Internet of Things - Empirical studies of any of the above topics - Software Standards

Special Issue on Affect Awareness in Software Engineering
Submission Date: 2017-06-15

Affective computing is the study and development of systems and devices that can recognize, interpret, process, and simulate human affect, i.e. the experience of feelings or emotions. Over the past decade, research has discovered the impact of affective states on work performance and on team collaboration. This also applies in software engineering, in which researchers has begun to study how people's personality, moods, and emotions impact a broad range of activities. For the successful execution of software engineering projects, stakeholders need to experience positive affect (such as trust or appreciation), to agree on display rules for emotions and moods, and to hold mutual commitment to the project goals. We invite to this special issue high-quality archival contributions on the role of affective computing and affective states in software engineering. This includes empirical studies, theoretical models, and tools for supporting emotion/affect awareness in software engineering, both from academia and industry.

Special Issue on Architecting Autonomous and Smart Systems
Submission Date: 2017-09-15

The special issue focuses on architecting smart and autonomous systems, which ask for innovative software engineering practices. The way software is developed and maintained is rapidly changing and is increasingly produced according to rapid continuous software engineering development processes. We invite the original previously unpublished papers as well as extended versions of papers presented at the 14th International Conference on Software Architecture (ICSA 2017). Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: - Architecture and CI&D, DevOps, and/or Microservices - Model driven engineering for continuous architecting - Architecting Systems of Systems, IoT systems, CPSs, software ecosystems, self-adaptive systems, or autonomous systems - Architectures integrating machine learning/deep learning in traditional software - Architecture frameworks and architecture description languages for smart and autonomous systems - Re-factoring and evolving architecture design decisions and solutions - Preserving architecture quality throughout the system lifetime - State-of-the-art and state-of-practice in Architecting Autonomous and Smart Systems - Industrial experiments and case studies
