SPPI - Software Process and Product Improvement

Motivation: The size, complexity, and criticality of software-intensive systems require innovative and economic approaches to development and evolution. In today's competitive world, software quality is a key to success and stability of organizations. Software process and product improvement (SPPI) aims at significantly increasing both the quality of software-intensive systems and the productivity of software development.

The SPPI track will bring together researchers and practitioners to share SPPI innovations and experiences. The track is an integral part of the 42nd Euromicro Conference on Software Engineering and Advanced Applications (SEAA) 2016.


In particular, we encourage submissions demonstrating the benefits or limitations of SPPI approaches through case studies, experiments, and quantitative data.
