The 17th IEEE International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering (ISSRE 2006)

7-10 November 2006 - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA



Track Information

Submission for select ISSRE 06 tracks is NOW OPEN!

Research Track Papers

Extended Submission Deadline: April 21 2006 - Submissions are closed
Acceptance Notification: July 1 2006
Camera-Ready Copy Due: August 1 2006

The goal of ISSRE’s research track is to present the latest, best, and most important research results in the area of software reliability engineering and related fields such as software testing, software security, software safety and quality assurance. Best papers will be published in a special issue of Empirical Software Engineering.

Students are encouraged to submit papers to the regular track. Papers with a student as a first authors will automatically be considered for a travel award to present the paper at the conference.

Government Practices Program

Extended Submission Deadline: August 31 2006 - Click here to submit a paper!
Acceptance Notification: September 1 2006
Final Presentations and Panelist Statements Due: October 1 2006

The goal of the Government Track Program is to increase the synergy between government agencies, software engineers, and the research community in the domain of software reliability engineering, especially as it pertains to government high assurance development efforts. The objectives are to identify and discuss:
  • What software reliability engineering means.
  • The current challenges of establishing a comprehensive software reliability engineering program given the challenges inherent to government development efforts.
  • The anticipated needs for employing software reliability engineering in the future.
The scope of this track is focused on software reliability engineering as it relates to government projects that are of the highest criticality and demand the highest reliability. Its objectives strive to establish what it means to have a software reliability engineering program as well as what the current and future challenges are going to be.

Workshop Proposals

Submission Deadline: May 15 2006 - Submissions are closed.

We are soliciting workshop proposals from the community. A workshop proposal submission should not exceed 3-4 pages and will consist of the following details:
  • Title of the workshop;
  • Theme, objectives and main challenges of the workshop;
  • Number of participants, how they will be solicited and selected;
  • Pre-workshop activities;
  • Activities during the workshop;
  • Length of time and required rooms;
  • Expected outcomes of the workshop;
  • Organizer’s background and experience with workshops;
  • Previous context/history of the workshop (if any).

Tutorial Proposals

Submission Deadline: May 15 2006 - Submissions are closed.

The objectives of tutorials presented at ISSRE are to expose the attendees to the theory, tools and techniques and state-of-the-art in SRE. The tutorials draw a healthy mix of participants, from the industry, academia and government agencies.

We solicit tutorial proposals on current topics that will draw significant interest from a large number of attendees.

Panel Proposals

Submission Deadline: May 15 2006 - Submissions are closed.

Industry Practices Program

Extended Submission Deadline: July 7 2006 - Submissions are closed.
Acceptance Notification: September 1 2006
Final Presentations and Panelest Statements Due: October 1 2006
Best Industry Practices papers will be published in Journal of Empirical Software Engineering.

The objective of the Industry Practice program is to establish a meaningful dialog among software practitioners and with software engineering researchers on the results (both good and bad), obstacles, and lessons learned associated with applying software development practices in various environments. The Industry Practice presentations will provide accounts of the application of software engineering practices (which may be principles, techniques, tools, methods, processes, testing techniques etc.) to a specific domain or to the development of a significant software system. In particular, we are interested in software development techniques that prevent bugs or detect bugs early during development in addition to various downstream bug metrics and reliability growth curves etc. We would like the Industry presentations to be of interest to software development professionals as well as software quality groups.

Fast Abstracts

Extended Submission Deadline: August 11 2006 - Submissions are closed
Acceptance Notification: September 15 2006
Camera-Ready Copy Due Deadline: October 1 2006

A Fast Abstract is a lightly reviewed, two-page technical article that requires a short talk at the conference. The goal is to promote current work, research, practices, opinions, experiences, and issues. This is an early communication of technical work and does not always require completed results like that of a journal publication. Authors can introduce new ideas to the community or state positions on controversial issues. Accepted contributions will be included in the supplemental conference proceedings. The history and the genesis of Fast Abstracts and past archives can be found at http://www.chillarege.com/fastabstracts.

Student Program Papers

Extended Submission Deadline: August 11 2006 - Submissions are closed
Acceptance Notification: September 10 2006
Extended Camera-Ready Copy Due Deadline: October 6 2006

The goal of the Student papers program is to encourage students to attend ISSRE and present their work, exchange ideas with researchers and practitioners, and get early feedback on their research efforts.

This years Student paper program will continue the successful tradition, started in 1999, of awarding student travel grants. To date, the program allowed over 80 students from degree granting institutions to attend ISSRE, and has become one of the most popular features of the symposium. The student travel awards are made possible by generous support from industry sponsors.
