The International Conference on Software and Systems Reuse (ICSR) is the premier event in the field of software reuse research and technology. The main goal of ICSR is to present the most recent advances and breakthroughs in the area of software reuse and to promote an intensive and continuous exchange among researchers and practitioners.
The 19th International Conference on Software and Systems Reuse (ICSR-2020) will be held on November 9-11 2020, in Hammamet, Tunisia. The guiding theme of this edition is:
*Reuse in emerging software engineering practices*
We invite submissions on new and innovative research results and industrial experience reports dealing with all aspects of software reuse within the context of the modern software development landscape, characterized by: 1) Large ecosystems of reusable, open-source components and service-oriented, containerized cloud-hosted applications; 2) Context-aware (IoT) applications, which combine a complex and heterogeneous mix of ever more powerful hardware and evolving software frameworks and containers; and 3) The resurgence of AI as both, (i) an enabling technology for reuse for domain engineering (e.g. domain ontologies, identification of reusable assets) and application engineering (e.g. component retrieval), and (ii) an object of reuse that addresses the full lifecycle and scope of “intelligent” software components, i.e. well beyond the simple (re)use of machine learning libraries. These developments have had important—and sometimes contradictory—effects on reuse theory and practice.
We welcome papers dealing with : 1) Reuse organizational, managerial, economic, and legal issues, in general, and as they pertain to the new development landscape, 2) Technical aspects of reuse, in general (see full CFP at www.icsr2020.org), and as they pertain to large ecosystems of open-source libraries (npm, pip, etc), IoT frameworks, and machine learning artefacts (business components, models, libraries, training data, etc.), and 3) Software reuse in industry (success & failure stories; success factors and lessons learned; ROI studies).
As with previous editions, accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, to be published by Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science. New this edition, the program committee will award a Best Paper Award to the best paper in terms of, 1) originality, 2) presentation, and 3) impact. The finalists will be submitted to a special issue of a refereed journal.
*Research paper abstracts due June 19th, 2020, full papers due July 3rd, 2020*.
