About the Workshop and Topics

This symposium extends the discussion of software quality issues in modern software development processes. It covers all the aspects of the process and product quality, quality assurance and standards, quality planning, quality control and software quality challenges. It also covers the frontier issues and trends for achieving quality objectives. It includes a quality management process, the role of software metrics, predictor metrics and control metrics, the role of measurement in accessing the quality and limitations.

Topics include (related to quality issues in software, software applications in any related area-cloud, agile, IoT, Big data, smart applications)

but not limited to:

1. Software development fundamentals,

2. Extreme Programming (XP), Agile, Scrum,

3. Software requirements techniques,

4. Software testing & QA fundamentals,

5. Software testing models and approaches,

6. Software testing tools and frameworks,

7. Software test design,

8. Types of software maintenance,

9. Software maintenance process models,

10. Software maintenance standards,

11. Software maintenance tools

12. Software Reviews (SR)

13. Software Metrics (SM)

14. Software Process Assessment (SPA)

15. Software Process Improvement (SPI)

16. Software Standardization and Certification

ISSQ: 2020 invites you to submit your work that describes original and significant contribution in all above-mentioned area of software engineering processes. The paper submitted to ISSQ 2020 must not be submitted elsewhere either in conference or journal.
