About the Workshop and Topics

Software Engineering Processes and Applications (SEPA: 2017) is aimed to provide a forum to scientists/researchers/engineers/practitioners and academicians to share their ideas, experiences and researches in the field of software engineering process and applications. SEPA 2017 covers all the frontier issues and trends in the modern software development processes. It includes process models, development process for different software platforms (e.g. social networks, cloud), process for adaptive, dependable, embedded, systems, agile development, software engineering practices, requirements, system and design engineering including architectural design, component level design, formal methods, software modeling, testing strategies and tactics, process and product metrics, Web Engineering, project management, risk management, and configuration management. SEPA also invite papers for the development process of the software/software systems in application areas e.g. agriculture, aviation industry, business, cyber-crime, education, government, military etc.

SEPA invites you to submit theme papers that describe original and significant contribution in all above-mentioned area of software engineering processes. The paper submitted to SEPA 2017 must not be submitted elsewhere either in conference or journal and should be 12 – 16 pages (LNCS style). Papers selected after peer review will be included in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science published by Springer (only after completing registration) and presented orally at the conference.


All contributions will be reviewed by international program committee members and judged on their quality and relevance. The accepted papers for SEPA 2017 will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science as a book series of Computational Science and Its Applications: ICCSA. Please note that one of the authors of the accepted paper must be register and supposed to present the paper in the conference (virtual presentation is also possible for some cases). The extended version of selected papers will also be invited for the publication in a reputed International Journal.


Please submit your paper through ICCSA 2017 conference web site.

Special Issues SEPA 2017

In several countries the conference papers are not considered in evaluation of academic performances. In this point of view, we have decided to publish the extended version of all presented papers in SEPA in special issues of several international journals. The best papers will be selected for an ISI SCIE indexed journal. The papers will also be selected for International Journal of Software Science and Computational Intelligence (IJSSCI: Published by IGI global), International Journal of Open Source Software and Processes (IJOSSP) (IGI Global, USA) and International Journal of Human Capital Information(IGI Global) with the condition that the papers should fall under the aim and scope of the mentioned journals. Remaining papers will be accommodated in an International journal: Covenant Journal of Informatics and Communication Technology (an Official Journal of Covenant University). We are highly thankful to the Management of all these journals for accepting the special issues.
