The development of software-intensive systems is continuously evolving and faces many new challenges. New technologies, such as cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), etc. as well as continuous engineering processes, such as DevOps, are being employed in new open contexts with more pervasive software, e.g., in Smart Cities, Smart Manufacturing, Smart Mobility, etc. This special issue will focus on collecting the latest research results on such emerging topics.
The topics relevant to this special issue include, but are not restricted to, the following:
– Software management & processes
– Software quality & technical debt
– Cloud-native computing & DevOps
– Embedded systems, edge computing & IoT
– Model-driven software engineering
– AI-supported software engineering
– Data and AI-driven software engineering
– Mining open data and software repositories
Surveys, (Systematic) Literature Reviews or Mapping Studies are out of the scope of the special issue and will be desk-rejected.
