IWESQ2020

2nd International Workshop on Experience with SQuaRE series and its Future Direction

in conjunction with the 27th Asia-Pacific Software Engineering Conference (APSEC 2020)
Singapore, 1st December 2020

Purpose and Scope

The ISO/IEC 25000 (Systems and Software Quality Requirements and Evaluation: SQuaRE) series are a set of international standards for systems and software, data and IT service quality, which have been widely used for a couple of decades. In the research field, they have been also examined as a tool for performing various analyses and evaluations on systems and software quality.

This workshop aims at sharing such research outcomes and issues, and experience of practical applications of the SQuaRE series, in order to promote much more fruitful research and practice for quality systems and software products. The scope of this workshop includes:

  • Experience of research and practical application of the quality models and/or measurements to:
    • Requirements analysis
    • Engineering
    • Testing and evaluation of quality
    • Certification of product, data, and IT service
  • Quality consideration on emerging technologies such as AI, Big data, Blockchain, etc.
  • Quality consideration on new types of development processes such as Agile, DevOps, etc.
  • New ideas on improving the SQuaRE series

Call for Papers

We encourage you to submit a contribution, especially experience reports. All submissions will be peer reviewed and judged on the basis of their clarity, relevance, and interest to the workshop participants.

Paper submissions must be in English and conform to the IEEE Dual Column format. The paper length of at most 6 pages (including figures, references and appendices) will be strictly enforced.
