Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies in Software Engineering (SMSE)

Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies have become an important and phenomenal research method in software engineering in the recent decade. A Systematic literature review is a form of secondary study that uses a well-defined methodology to identify, analyse and interpret all available evidence related to a specific research question in a way that is unbiased and (to a degree) repeatable. A Mapping study is a broad review of primary studies in a specific topic area which aims to identify what evidence is available on the topic.

To encourage the submission of Systematic literature studies, SEAA 2018 will have a special Track entitled: Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies in Software Engineering (SMSE). The SMSE track will bring together researchers and practitioners to share their results and experiences with Systematic Secondary Studies. The track is an integral part of the 44th Euromicro Conference on Software Engineering and Advanced Applications (SEAA) 2018.

Suggested topics of interest include Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies in:

  • Organizational and business views on process improvement
  • Value-based software engineering
  • Global software engineering
  • Quality assurance, inspections, testing
  • Software process improvement and process standards
  • Process modelling, composition, and enactment
  • Process simulation
  • Product management
  • Quantitative models for development processes and products
  • Software architecture
  • Dependability, safety, security, or usability
  • Open source software and software quality
  • Agile and lean development
  • Software reuse, product lines, and software ecosystems
  • Innovative approaches to software development
  • Software evolution
  • Empirical studies and experimental approaches

Furthermore, papers on methodological issues and tool support for Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies are very welcome.
