Call for Papers

SE-CLOUD is sponsored by INSTICC – Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication

SCOPE

Service oriented software engineering and cloud software engineering have emerged to address software as a set of services which deal with user needs. At the same time, we have seen a large number of downfalls due to software failures. This was in part due to the lack of adopting well designed software engineering practices. Now, there is a need to revise these practices given the emergence of service and cloud computing, which will revolutionize the next generation of software engineering. This conference offers a venue for presenting new approaches, processes, techniques, technologies and applications based on the paradigm of Cloud Software Engineering.

Cloud Software Engineering research is vibrant and encompasses many areas, like knowledge sharing, requirements engineering, organisational and business processes, project management, web and computational services, run-time re-configurability, integration, testing, componentisation and many others.

CONFERENCE AREAS

Each of these topic areas is expanded below but the sub-topics list is not exhaustive. Papers may address one or more of the listed sub-topics, although authors should not feel limited by them. Unlisted but related sub-topics are also acceptable, provided they fit in one of the following main topic areas:

1. REQUIREMENTS ENGINEERING FOR CLOUD COMPUTING

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

SE-CLOUD 2019 will have several invited keynote speakers, who are internationally recognized experts in their areas. Their names are not yet confirmed.

PAPER SUBMISSION

Authors should submit a paper in English, carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, addressing one or several of the conference areas or topics. Each paper should clearly indicate the nature of its technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains or environments to which it is applicable. To facilitate the double-blind paper evaluation method, authors are kindly requested to produce and provide the paper WITHOUT any reference to any of the authors, including the authors’ personal details, the acknowledgments section of the paper and any other reference that may disclose the authors’ identity.

Only original papers should be submitted. Authors are advised to read INSTICC's ethical norms regarding plagiarism and self-plagiarism thoroughly before submitting and must make sure that their submissions do not substantially overlap work which has been published elsewhere or simultaneously submitted to a journal or another conference with proceedings. Papers that contain any form of plagiarism will be rejected without reviews.

Authors can submit their work in the form of a Regular Paper, representing completed and validated research, or as a Position Paper, portraying a short report of work in progress or an arguable opinion about an issue discussing ideas, facts, situations, methods, procedures or results of scientific research focused on one of the conference topic areas. All papers must be submitted through the online submission platform PRIMORIS and should follow the instructions and templates that can be found under Guidelines and Templates. After the paper submission has been successfully completed, authors will receive an automatic confirmation e-mail.

PUBLICATIONS

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on digital support.
SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef (http://www.crossref.org/) and every paper on our digital library is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier).
The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI/ISI), DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.
