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 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

Special Issue on Software Engineering Education and Training
Submission Date: 2017-12-22

The Conference on Software Engineering Education and Training (CSEE&T) is now approaching 30 years of longevity. Software engineering education has changed a great deal in that timeframe. In 1986, software engineering education was largely undertaken by industry, with just a few academic software engineering programs in place. The Master of Software Engineering (MSE) reference curriculum changed the landscape of software engineering, resulting in many MSE programs worldwide, not to mention software engineering tracks within Computer Science (CS) masters' programs. In the years that followed, software engineering education emerged at the undergraduate level, with a documented reference curriculum. Software engineering professionalism initiatives resulted in the certification and licensing of software engineers in a number of countries worldwide. We are seeing increased attention to software engineering specialty areas, and many software engineering degree programs have tracks to support these specialties. On the industry side we are seeing an upheaval in software engineering as we know it. Software engineering is pervasive. Innovations such as Cloud Computing, autonomous vehicles, drones, bioengineering, and other initiatives have made for a rapidly changing landscape. Topics such as software assurance, safety, and reliability have become increasingly important knowledge areas. As educators we are challenged to keep up with the emerging trends, to identify suitable software engineering techniques, and to incorporate them into our class offerings. We are in a global economy with a software supply chain that can extend across many countries and regions. Each one has their own regulations and laws about safety, security, and privacy. Practicing software engineers change jobs frequently, so the value of in-house training is not as clear as it once was. In 2017 the conference will to focus on the changes that are taking place in the field, our response to it, and our vision of how we can move forward to meet the ever-increasing demand for qualified software engineers. Furthermore, the 2017 conference has teamed up with the Journal of Systems and Software (JSS) to devote a special issue of the JSS to the select papers from this year's conference. Authors interested to contribute to the JSS special issue should consider submitting their preliminary work to the CSEE&T.
