*** SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS AND OTHER CONTRIBUTIONS ***

14th International Conference on Product Focused Software Development  
and Process Improvement (PROFES 2013)

June 12-14, 2013, Paphos, Cyprus

http://www.profes-conferences.org


CONFERENCE BACKGROUND AND TOPICS

PROFES is the premier forum for practitioners, researchers, and  
educators to present and discuss experiences, ideas, innovations, as  
well as concerns related to software process and product quality  
improvement. PROFES 2013 will be the 14th edition of the conference  
and will take place in Azia Resort Hotel in Paphos, Cyprus (http://www.aziaresort.com 
).

The technical program will feature keynote talks, research papers, and  
experience reports on the most relevant topics related to process  
diversity management. Empirical studies (i.e. experiments, industrial  
experiences, cases studies, etc.) are welcome. In addition, we will  
host a number of workshops and tutorials. We will also host a Doctoral  
Symposium. Details about the program can be found on the conference  
website.

The proceedings of PROFES 2013 will (most likely) be published by  
Springer in the Lecture Notes on Computer Science (LNCS) series (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs 
) (final approval pending).

Traditionally, PROFES has provided topics, which are up-to-date,  
important, and interesting. To ensure that PROFES will retain its high  
standards and that it will keep focusing on the most relevant research  
issues, we are looking for original research on software engineering  
techniques, methods, and technologies for product-focused software  
development and process improvement as well as their practical  
application in an industrial setting. The topics of interest include,  
but are not restricted to, the following:

* Product quality models for software, systems, and services
* Project management techniques
* Service orientation and cloud
* Software development for Cyber Physical Systems
* Evidence-Based Software Engineering
* Software Process Improvement (SPI)
* Agile and lean processes
* Global software development
* Outsourcing, near-shoring, and off-shoring
* Process modeling, management, and assessment
* Processes for COTS and OSS-based development
* Service engineering processes
* Software business models
* Industrial experiences and case studies on the topics above

SUBMISSION OF TECHNICAL PAPERS AND EXPERIENCE REPORTS

All submitted papers will undergo a rigorous peer review process.  
Papers will be selected based on originality, quality, soundness and  
relevance. All contributions must be original, not published, accepted  
or submitted for publication elsewhere. All papers should be submitted  
in PDF format through Easychair (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=profes2013 
). The maximum length of the research and experience report papers is  
15 pages. Submitted papers must conform to the Springer LNCS layout  
rules (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0).

SUBMISSION OF OTHER CONTRIBUTIONS

The submission details for short papers, posters, PhD descriptions and  
proposals for workshops and tutorials, will soon be available at the  
conference website.
