SEDA 2018 The 6th International Conference on Software Engineering for Defense Applications Rome, Italy, 7-8 June 2018



Software Engineering aims at modelling, measuring, enhancing, and implementing quality software development processes and products in a rigorous way by means of requirements elicitation and analysis, system design and development, testing, and maintenance. Fast evolution of software tools, methods, and techniques as well as market demand require software engineers to be prompt in evaluating the performance, the quality and the suitability of software products and processes. This is particularly important for software for defense applications that needs to maintain high levels of security and robustness. Such software very often anticipates the needs in the civil environment.

There is a growing need for research that report and debate practical implications of Software Engineering in the defense environment. There is a need of software performance evaluation in the real settings through controlled experiments as well as case and field studies. As well, there is a growing interest in meeting the strict constraints imposed by the spending review process.

For this reason, we welcome original contributions on new Software Engineering models, approaches, methods, and tools and their evaluation as well as business and economic aspects of IT in the context of defense applications. In particular, we welcome submissions on cost/benefit analysis, new business models, organizational evolution, and business intelligence systems and their evaluation in the context of defense organizations, processes, and systems.

Conference topics include, but are not limited to:
*         Software Engineering for Defense Applications
*         Agile and Evolutionary Processes for Defense
