Call for Papers

Software Engineering aims at modelling, measuring, enhancing and implementing quality software development process and product in a rigorous way by means of requirements elicitation and analysis, system design and development, testing, and maintenance. Fast evolution of software tools, methods, and techniques as well as market demand require software engineers to be prompt in evaluating the performance, the quality and the suitability of software products and processes. This is particularly important for software for defence applications that needs to maintain high levels of security and robustness. Such software very often anticipate the needs in the civil environment.

There is a growing need for research that report and debate practical implications of Software Engineering in the defence environment. There is a need of software performance evaluation in the real settings through controlled experiments as well as case and field studies. As well, there is a growing interest in meeting the strict constraints imposed by the spending review process.

For this reason, we welcome original contributions on new Software Engineering models, approaches, methods, and tools and their evaluation as well as business and economic aspects of IT in the context of defence applications. In particular, we welcome submissions on cost/benefit analysis, new business models, organizational evolution, and business intelligence systems and their evaluation in the context of defence organizations, processes, and systems.
