Software management: Measurement, Peopleware and Innovation (SM)

Research in Software Management has far-reaching boundaries and must adapt to diverse contexts. Researchers in software management are expected to establish innovative connections among diverse disciplines to find resolutions for the challenges faced by software managers at all levels. The interdisciplinary nature of the solution approaches requires utilization of various methodologies both quantitative and qualitative. The development of new software measures, tools and methods requires adaptation mechanisms for their deployment in acquisition, development, maintenance and operation of software systems.

The Software Management Track is organized as part of the Euromicro SEAA for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss innovative ideas, methodologies, trends, and experiences in diverse boundaries. In particular, we encourage submissions of technical research papers and experience reports demonstrating the potential of new approaches by means of empirical studies. We would like to promote research fields significantly influencing the success of software projects and software organizations, including agile approaches, peopleware, innovation management and software measurement.

The submission of tool demo papers (describing a tool useful in the context of software management) and poster papers (describing ongoing research and exciting new research projects) is also encouraged.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following knowledge areas:

  • Management in agile contexts
  • Innovation management
  • Peopleware
  • Software measurement
  • Software management tools and techniques
  • Software project planning
  • Software estimation 
  • Software analytics
  • Project monitoring and control
  • Configuration management
  • Risk management and measurement
  • Subcontract management
  • Customer-contractor relationship management
  • Software maintenance measurement and management
  • Green software management
  • Business models for software management
  • Case studies and industry experience
