The 13th IEEE International Workshop on

Quality Oriented Reuse of Software (QUORS’19)

URL: https://ieeecompsac.computer.org/2019/quors/

A joint event with COMPSAC’2019

The 42nd Annual IEEE International Computer Software

and Applications Conference

Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, July 15-19, 2019



Software reuse has been one of the most effective paradigms for building software systems and applications for decades. Recently, the rapid and fundamental advances in computing technologies have been driving the role and scope of software systems to new levels. A number of new types of software systems are emerging, among which microservice based systems, smart/pervasive computing, cloud computing and big data applications are eminent examples. The advent of these emerging systems has raised the level of software reuse to services, large-scale components or agglomeration of components in more challenging context which is pervasive, service-oriented, AI-driven and trustworthy. Systematic and large-scale reuse of reusable assets at multiple development levels is improving the efficiency of software development activities significantly in terms of cost and time.

However, previous research in software reuse mainly focused on the functional aspect of a system, tended to ignore or treat the quality aspects trivially. Modern computing models tend to be globally distributed, ubiquitous, highly secure, intelligent and dynamically adaptive. These systems, such as smart/pervasive systems, cloud services, microservice-based systems and big data applications, have imposed more rigorous quality requirements on software reuse technologies. Today in the “smart IoT era”, it becomes a great challenge to meet the new requirements of emerging software systems and meanwhile enjoy the benefits of substantial software reuse.

Recently, the research community and industry have been aware of the above weakness and much work has been ongoing. In this workshop we wish to bring together researchers and practitioners to share latest research results, advances and practical experiences under the banner of “Quality Oriented Reuse of Software for Emerging Software Systems in IoT and AI Era”. The workshop will act as a forum for active discussion, idea stimulation and communication.


The workshop will bring together researchers and developers from academia and industry for advancing the methodology and technology of software reuse which emphasizes meeting strict quality requirements, such as dependability, agility, security and performance, particularly in the context of emerging types of software systems. The workshop seeks new approaches, system architectures and tools that facilitate the quality aspects of software reuse technologies.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Cloud computing services: SaaS, PaaS and IaaS;

* Quality of clouds services;

* Pervasive or ubiquitous systems;

* Microservices and reuse;

* AI-driven smart systems;

* Machine learning based software engineering

* Architecture and models for Big Data applications;

* Architecture and models for IoT applications;

* Trustworthiness and security models

* Trustworthy software reuse methods;

* Dependable component-based systems;

* Software product lines;

* Quality aspects of design patterns;

* Software evolution;

* Software quality metrics and testing;

* Model-driven software engineering;

* Component and service repository;

* Service Oriented Systems (SOA);

* COTS product reuse;

* Reuse in safety critical systems;

* Reuse in service and component based Enterprise Systems;

* Reuse in embedded software systems;

* Open source software reuse;

* Case studies and experience reports.

Papers must be submitted electronically via the QUORS 2019 Submission Page (Link available at QUORS web site https://ieeecompsac.computer.org/2019/quors/). Please follow the instructions posted on the web site. The format of submitted papers should follow the guidelines for IEEE conference proceedings, i.e., 8.5\” x 11\”, Two-Column Format. Please follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare your papers. The paper should not exceed 4000 words or 6 pages in IEEE paper format including figures, tables, and references. Any problem, please contact the workshop chair x.liu@napier.ac.uk.

All papers will be reviewed by the program committee according to its originality, significance, correctness, presentation and relevance. We also encourage authors to present position papers on practical studies and experiments, critique of existing work, emerging issues, and novel ideas under development. Papers can be submitted as either regular papers, short papers, or fast abstracts. Acceptance and final category depends on reviewer feedback.

Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings of the 43rd IEEE Computer Software and Applications Conference (COMPSAC 2019) by IEEE Computer Society Press, indexed through INSPEC and EI Index (Elsevier\’s Engineering Information Index), and automatically included in the IEEE Digital Library. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper or fast abstract must register as a full participant of the workshop to have the paper or fast abstract published in the proceedings.
