ICSSP 2020 will be co-located with ICSE 2020 in Seoul, South Korea and held on May 23 and 24, 2020. As a special treat, ICSSP will hold a joint keynote speaker, a joint panel, and joint reception with the International Conference on Global Software Engineering (ICGSE).


Techniques under the general heading of artificial intelligence (AI) are transforming many industries. Software development and evolution is no exception. These techniques including (but not limited to) Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL) are redefining how developers build software products. ML and DL are accelerating contemporary software development lifecycles by analyzing huge amounts of data produced and consumed throughout the process. Concurrently, hardware provisioning is undergoing fundamental changes. We now see the rise of serverless infrastructure provisioning and a move towards pay-per-use hardware with the invention of microservices and Function-as-a-Service (FaaS) technology.

AI and serverless hardware provisioning are rising trends that warrant careful software and systems process attention. AI can be an aid to software and systems processes, while software and system processes are required to build AI-based systems. This raises an important question for our field: How will human intelligence be supported and augmented by machine intelligence? With automated toolchains and cloud-based hardware provisioning paradigms driving more rapid and continuous integration and delivery, how will this combination of process, technology and people improve the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of software and systems development?

ICSSP 2020 is seeking contributions on research, practice, and compelling new ideas pertaining, but not limited, to the following topics:

    Software and systems processes for AI-based systems
    AI for general software and systems processes
    General software process related studies and research reports
    Measurement for hybrid and evolving processes
    The impact of serverless infrastructure on software and systems processes
    Empirical studies and experience reports on agile or hybrid processes
    Factors affecting selection, design, adoption, management and success of hybrid processes
    Continuous integration and deployment for serverless infrastructure
    Function-as-a-Service software and systems processes
    Impacts of special requirements such as high safety/reliability, globally distributed development, continuous integration, and others
    Evolution or transformation of organizations
    Enterprise processes for advanced development paradigms such as agile, lean, DevOps or customer-centric development
    Data science for analysis and management of hybrid and evolving processes

All accepted papers will be included in the ICSSP Proceedings, which will be published as part of the ICSE companion proceedings. In addition, a selection of the best papers from the ICSSP 2020 conference will appear in a special issue of the Journal of Software Evolution and Process.

We invite the following submissions:

Full papers (10 pages including references) that reflect completed and evaluated research on novel approaches to major software and systems engineering process challenges, especially relating to synergies of AI, serverless, and software and systems Processes. Enhanced versions of the best research papers will be included in a special issue of the Journal of Software: Evolution and Process. Full papers can also be industry experience papers that report and reflect on in-depth experience, potentially including challenges, solutions, lessons, and recommendations, of significance for the research and practice communities.

Short papers (5 pages including references) that present concise research results, describe workin-progress (e.g. Ph. D. research), or conceptual and position papers addressing new perspectives,open questions and future directions. Short papers can also be industrial papers, for instance,describing practical challenges or research needs motivated by experience.

Posters (2 pages extended abstract (including references) + DIN A2 poster draft) for research or industry experience that is not yet ready for publication as a paper, but nevertheless would be of interest to other researchers in terms of ideas, participation, or collaboration.
