Call For Papers
The main goal of ICSR is to present the most recent advances and breakthroughs in the area of software reuse and to promote an intensive and continuous exchange among researchers and practitioners.

The guiding theme for this edition is “Reuse in emerging software engineering practices”.

Recent advances in software engineering have revolutionized all the aspects of software development. For example, while agile development pleads against development for reuse, agile teams increasingly rely on ecosystems of (re)usable open source software developed by quintessential reuse organizations—open source developer communities. Similarly, cloud computing and container technologies have revolutionized software architectures reuse at the architectural level—now embodied as reusable services on cloud platforms. These are but two examples about how recent advances in software engineering have had important—and sometimes contradictory—effects on reuse.

We invite submissions on new and innovative research results and industrial experience reports dealing with all aspects of software reuse within the context of the modern software development landscape, characterized by:

    Large ecosystems of reusable, open-source components and service-oriented, containerized cloud-hosted applications,
    Context-aware (IoT) applications, which combine a complex and heterogeneous mix of ever more powerful hardware and evolving software frameworks and containers,
    The resurgence of AI as both, (i) an enabling technology for reuse for domain engineering (e.g. domain ontologies, identification of reusable assets) and application engineering (e.g. component retrieval), and (ii) an object of reuse that addresses the full lifecycle and scope of “intelligent” software components, i.e. well beyond the simple (re)use of machine learning libraries.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    Reuse organizational, managerial, economic, and legal issues, in general, and as they pertain to the new development landscape (wide-spread open-source libraries, IoT, AI):
        Economic models of reuse
        Benefit and risk analysis, scoping
        Legal and managerial aspects of reuse
        Reuse adoption and transition to software reuse
        Lightweight reuse approaches
        Reuse in agile projects
    Technical aspects of reuse, including:
        Domain analysis
        Domain ontologies and models
        Variability management and software product lines
        Feature modeling reuse practices
        Domain specific languages (DSLs)
        New language abstractions for software reuse
        Generative Development
        Ontology and Model-Driven Development
        Identification of reusable assets in legacy systems
        COTS-based development and reuse of open source assets
        Retrieval and recommendation of reusable assets
        Reuse of non-code artifacts
        Configuration and release management with COTS
        Architecture-centric reuse approaches
        Service-oriented architectures and microservices
        Software composition and modularization 
    Software reuse in industry
        Reuse success stories
        Reuse failures, and lessons learned
        Reuse obstacles and success factors
        ROI studies 

As with previous editions, accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, to be published by Springer-Verlag’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science, and will be searchable through the main online indices.

The program committee will award a Best Paper Award to the best paper in terms of:


The finalists will be submitted to a special issue of a refereed journal. Members of the program committee will shepherd these papers through the review process.
