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 Mobile Software Engineering and Systems
Submission Date: 2022-09-01

In recent years, the massive increase in the use of mobile applications has greatly influenced the way people go about their daily life. Mobile platforms are rapidly evolving to continuously integrate diverse and powerful capabilities, including various sensors, cameras, wireless communication channels, as well as on−device memory and disk capacities. As a result of ingeniously applying these technological developments, developers of mobile software are pushing the boundaries with innovative mobile services and exciting mobile applications. Consequently, due to the rapid development and evolution of mobile software, developers face new software engineering challenges. To address these challenges, researchers must create formally grounded methods that support novel advanced practices and tools. We solicit contributions related to mobile software engineering, including but not limited to the following topics: Development environments and tools Testing, maintenance, verification, and evolution Patterns, frameworks, and product lines Refactoring, restructuring, and renovation Program transformation and optimization Empirical studies and metrics User experience and new input devices Hybrid versus native applications Agile or model−driven development Application and system security Cloud support and scalability Static and dynamic analysis Debugging techniques and tools Mobile programming and software engineering education and training The role of mobile in the context of the Internet of Things Mobile apps connected to wearable devices Industrial experience reports Important Dates Submission: September 1, 2022 Notification to authors (first round): December 1, 2022 Submission of revised papers: March 1, 2023 Notification to authors (second round): May 1, 2023 Submission after second review: June 15, 2023 Final acceptance: July 15 2023 Proposed date of Publication: August 15 2023 Submission Guidelines All manuscripts and supplementary materials should be submitted through the Elsevier Editorial System at Submissions should be prepared according to the Guide for Authors posted on the journal’s website. Please select VSI:MobileSoft for this special issue from the “Choose Article Type” pull−down menu during the submission process. Submitted papers must be original and must not have been previously published or be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Surveys, (systematic) literature reviews, and mapping studies are out of the scope of this special issue and will be desk−rejected. We also encourage extensions of conference papers, unless prohibited by copyright, if there is a significant difference in the technical content. Improvements such as adding a new case study or including a description of additional related studies do not satisfy this requirement. At least 30% extension in technical contents and contribution is required with a description explaining the difference between the conference paper and the journal submission.

Special Issue on Software Reuse for the Next Generation
Submission Date: 2022-11-02

Software reuse continuously shaped every aspect of software engineering in the last twenty years, from the coming of age of software product lines (systematic reuse) to more opportunistic reuse opportunities offered through architectural innovations such as APIs, frameworks or (micro)services. This SI investigates current practices and looks forward to the next generation of reuse techniques. Next-generation reuse will address challenges such as increasing productivity, adapting to users’ needs and maintaining excellent quality. The SI welcomes analyses of current reuse practices (systematic literature studies and surveys are not allowed) on existing systems or organisations and validated proposals describing novel approaches to software reuse. Systematic literature reviews, systematic mapping studies and surveys are excluded from the special issue. Topics include but are not limited to the following. 1. Technical aspects of reuse, including: - Domain analysis - Reuse in/for Quality Assurance (QA) techniques, testing, verification, etc - Domain ontologies and Model-Driven Development - Variability management and software product lines - Context-aware and Dynamic Reuse - Reuse in and for Machine Learning - Domain-specific languages (DSLs) - New language abstractions for software reuse - Generative Development - COTS-based development and reuse of open source assets - Retrieval and recommendation of reusable assets - Reuse of non-code artefacts - Architecture-centric reuse approaches - Service-oriented architectures and microservices - Software composition and modularity 2. Reuse organisational, managerial, economic, and legal issues, in general, and as they pertain to the new development landscape (wide-spread open-source libraries, IoT, AI): - Benefit and risk analysis, scoping - Reuse adoption and transition to software reuse - Lightweight reuse approaches - Reuse in agile projects 3. Software reuse in industry - Reuse success stories - Reuse failures and lessons learned - Reuse obstacles and success factors
