We welcome original papers discussing ideas and novel approaches for certification and dependability of software-intensive systems in critical domains—please have a look at the call for papers for more details about the topics of WoSoCer. We also welcome papers discussing open challenges and industrial case studies in this area.
Papers must be submitted as a single Portable Document Format (PDF) file through the submission website:
The page limit papers is up to 8 pages. Both full-length and short papers (e.g., papers reporting on-going projects and prospective ideas) are welcome. Papers must be written in English, and be formatted according to the IEEE Computer Society Format Guidelines. We recommend that you embed fonts whenever possible to improve portability. We also strongly recommend you print the file and review it for integrity (fonts, symbols, equations, etc.) before submitting it. Papers that exceed the page limits specified above, are outside the scope of the workshop, or do not follow the formatting guidelines will be rejected.
All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by program committee members, with the objective of having at least three reviews for each paper. The best papers will be accepted and included in the workshop program according to the following criteria: relevance of the addressed topic to the scope of the workshop; novelty of the proposed contribution; technical relevance and practicality of presented ideas; relevance of case studies and of results for the industrial community; writing, presentation accuracy and style.
Accepted papers will be published in a supplemental volume of the ISSRE conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society, and will appear on IEEE Xplore, provided that at least one author of each accepted paper registers for the ISSRE conference and presents the paper at the workshop.
