ISSRE is the premium conference that focuses on the theory and practice of
software systems reliability engineering. Over the past 20+ years we have
grown to be recognized as the voice of software reliability. From its
humble beginnings in 1990, it has become a conference that has a unique
element to it: a rare combination of strong research and industry
Unlike the conferences which are either centred academically or
industrially, we are a rich combination of both! In recent years, our data
tells us that we are almost evenly split. This is a huge accomplishment
for any conference. And, this was no accident. The core leadership of the
conference has targeted this goal and created programs that allow the top
tier of research and industry to interact on issues of current importance.
That we have actually approached this target over the past five to eight
years is of immense satisfaction to us. Our gratitude is to you, the
participant, for helping us create this unique community.

Topics of interests
ISSRE 2016 is focused on innovative techniques and tools for assessing,
predicting, and improving the reliability, safety, and security of
software products. ISSRE also emphasizes industrial relevance, rigorous
empirical studies and experience reports on existing software systems.
ISSRE covers a broad range of topics. The list below identifies several,
but certainly not all:

* Reliability, availability and safety of software systems
* Validation and Verification
* Faults, errors, failures, defects, bugs
* Software quality and productivity
* Software security
* Dependability, survivability, fault tolerance and resilience of software
* Systems (hardware + software) reliability engineering
* Metrics and measurements, estimation, prediction of quality/reliability
* Services reliability engineering
* Open source software reliability engineering
* Web 2.0 reliability, availability and security issues
* Supporting tools and automation
* Industry best practices
* Software as a Service
* Virtualization and software reliability
* Reliability of mobile devices and applications
* Green and Sustainable Software engineering
* Reliability of Big Data and Internet of Things
* Empirical studies of any of the above topics
* Software Standards

Call for Research papers
The main research track at ISSRE 2016 is soliciting original, unpublished
research papers in three categories: (1) full research (regular) papers,
(2) practical experience reports, and (3) wild and provocative ideas (WAP)
papers. Papers will be assessed with criteria appropriate to each
category. ISSRE looks for works exploring new territory, continuing a
significant research, or reflecting on practical experience. While full
research manuscripts should explore a specific technology problem and
propose a complete solution to it, with extensive experimental results,
practical experience reports are expected to provide an in-depth
exposition of practitioner experiences and empirical studies. On the other
hand, WAP papers are expected to present either work currently in progress
or less developed but highly innovative ideas related to areas relevant to
ISSRE, aiming at inspiring discussion among conference attendees and
getting people thinking about open research challenges. Submissions will
be judged on originality, significance, correctness and impact. Authors
will have a chance to rebut the reviews within 800 words over the period
of July 10th to July 12th.
There will be a best paper award given to a paper in the main research
track. Full research papers and practical experience reports are eligible
for the award. Extended versions of selected papers will be invited for
potential publication in a special issue of the Journal of Systems and
Software (JSS - pending approval).

Papers must be written in English, and be formatted according to the IEEE
Computer Society Format Guidelines. Papers that exceed the page limits
specified below, or are outside the scope of the symposium, or do not
follow the formatting guidelines will be rejected without review.
Manuscript page lengths (all in double column, IEEE conference style format):

Research papers: 10 pages + 2 pages (for references and appendices)

Experience reports: 10 pages + 2 pages (for references and appendices)

WAP papers: 6 pages
