We welcome colleagues to organize workshops or special sessions for ICIS 2020. The Deadline to submit the proposals is June 1st, 2020.

Special sessions

Special Session 1: Empirical Software Engineering

Session organizers:Hebei Software Test Center

In the past two decades, empirical research has gradually played an important role in the research of software engineering, namely empirical software engineering.Empirical studies usually involve the collection and analysis of data and experience that can be used to characterize, evaluate and reveal relationships between software development deliverables, practices, and technologies. Over time, it is expected that such empirical results will form a body of knowledge leading to widely accepted and well-formed theories. This session will cover a broad set of research topics aboutempirical software engineering, including but not limited to the following:

  • Application of empirical research in software engineering
  • Methods and techniques of software metrics & test

Special Session 3: Combinatorial Testing Prioritization

Session organizers:College of computer and information engineering of Xiamen university of technology (XMUT)

Combinatorial Testing (CT) is a popular testing method to detect software failures triggered by parameters and their interactions. In the past thirty years, the researches on CT have contributed a wide variety of theories and techniques. However, there are also challenges in CT that ask for new and creative solutions. With the rapidly application of continuous integration software development, the more theories and techniques about CT prioritization will attract attention. This session will cover a broad set of research topics about combinatorial testing prioritization, including but not limited to the following:

  • Test suite generation based on combinatorial testing prioritization
  • Research on combinatorial testing switching cost
  • Research on the optima testing order of combinatorial testing
  • Combinatorial testing prioritization under different test scenarios
  • Combinatorial testing prioritization cost model
  • Test suite management based on combinatorial testing
  • Combinatorial testing prioritization under the application of big data

Special Session 4: Quality Engineering

Session organizers:

Tsuyoshi Nakajima (Shibaura Institute of Technology, Japan, tsnaka@shibaura-it.ac.jp)

Information systems and ICT products are increasingly used to perform a wide variety of organizational functions and personal activities. The quality of these products and systems enable and impact various business, regulatory and information technology stakeholders including direct and indirect users, developers, maintainers, acquirers, independent evaluators, system integrators, implementers, operations engineers, architects, trainers, business owners, auditors, managers, and the society at large. High-quality information systems and ICT products are hence essential to provide value, and avoid potential negative consequences, for the stakeholders.

However, the current manner of developing the information systems and ICT products are drastically changed:

  • More agile based
  • More integration based (combination of services consumed and components)
  • Increase of importance of data
  • Unclear responsibility for its quality (laid in several organization)

These changes make quality engineering more and more complicated and important for the current ICT products and services.

This special session focuses on methods, techniques and tools for the quality engineering, to overcome such difficulties. The intended research topics include:

  • Quality models and measures, and their application to various targets
  • Quality consideration on
    - system of systems,
    - emerging technologies such as AI, Big data, Blockchain, etc., and
    - new types of development processes such as Agile, DevOps, etc.
  • Quality engineering education
