Track 5: Software and System Engineering

SSE is a FedCSIS conference track aiming at integrating and creating synergy between technical sessions that thematically subscribe to the discipline of software engineering. The track emphasizes the issues relevant to developing and maintaining software systems that behave reliably, efficiently and effectively. This track investigates both established traditional approaches and modern emerging approaches to large software production and evolution.

For decades, it is still an open question in software industry, how to provide fast and effective software process, and how to come to the software systems, embedded systems, autonomous systems, or cyber-physical systems that will address the open issue of supporting information management process in many, particularly complex organization systems. Even more, it is a hot issue how to provide a synergy between systems in common and software services as mandatory component of each modern organization, particularly in terms of IoT, Big Data, and Industry 4.0 paradigms.

In recent years, we are the witnesses of great movements in the area of software and system engineering (SSE). Such movements are both of technological and methodological nature. By this, today we have a huge selection of various technologies, tools, and methods in SSE as a discipline that helps in a support of the whole information life cycle in organization systems. Despite that, one of the hot issues in practice is still how to effectively develop and maintain complex systems from various aspects, particularly when software components are crucial for addressing declared system goals, and their successful operation. It seems that nowadays we have great theoretical potentials for application of new and more effective approaches in SSE. However, it is more likely that real deployment of such approaches in industry practice is far behind their theoretical potentials.

The main goal of Track 5 is to address open questions and real potentials for various applications of modern approaches and technologies in SSE so as to develop and implement effective software services in a support of information management and system engineering. We intend to address interdisciplinary character of a set of theories, methodologies, processes, architectures, and technologies in disciplines such as: Software Engineering Methods, Techniques, and Technologies, Cyber-Physical Systems, Lean and Agile Software Development, Design of Multimedia and Interaction Systems, Model Driven Approaches in System Development, Development of Effective Software Services and Intelligent Systems, as well as applications in various problem domains. We invite researchers from all over the world who will present their contributions, interdisciplinary approaches or case studies related to modern approaches in SSE. We express an interest in gathering scientists and practitioners interested in applying these disciplines in industry sector, as well as public and government sectors, such as healthcare, education, or security services. Experts from all sectors are welcomed.
