The 25th IEEE International Symposium on
Software Reliability Engineering (ISSRE 2014)

Naples, Italy
November 3 - 6, 2014


The objective of the Industry Track program is to establish an
efficient dialogue between software practitioners and software
engineering researchers concerning the challenges, findings
(both positive and negative), encountered obstacles, and
lessons learned on software reliability. Of particular
interest is information on applying novel software
development, verification and validation practices in diverse
lifecycle styles, industry sectors, and software types.

The Industry Track presentations will address the application
of software engineering practices (which may include work on
principles, techniques, tools, methods, processes) to a
specific domain or to the development of a substantial
software system. In particular, we are interested in
techniques that increase system reliability by preventing,
detecting or correcting bugs early during the development
lifecycle. Also, we are interested in downstream bug metrics
and prediction methods. We would like the Industry
presentations to be of interest to software development
professionals, as well as to software quality and process
improvement groups with concrete relation to industrial

We seek submissions in the following topics of interest:

* Development and V&V: Software failure modes analysis,
software defect prediction, use of
techniques such as requirements
reviews, design reviews, static
analysis, code reviews, unit testing,
defect classification and root cause
analysis, reliability of software
produced using various development
methods, such as waterfall, agile,
pair programming, model driven
architectures and formal methods.

* Metrics: Defect density, key bug management, reliability
improvement achieved with different development
and test techniques, measured availability,
user perception studies.

* Testing: Test automation, log file analysis, automatic
test case generation, code coverage,
prioritization and targeting of tests,
estimating remaining defects and when to stop
testing, fault injection testing, model driven

* Security and Safety: Attack surface measurement, source code
or binary static analysis for security,
fuzz testing, predicting vulnerabilities,
threat modelling methods and results,
safety considerations and proofs of safe
operation, dependability assessment

* Release Management: Managing large releases, release readiness
criteria, maintenance release strategies,
bug and service request query attributes,
customer feedback mechanisms, trade-offs
between feature velocity and quality.

Important Dates:

* Abstract submission June 16, 2014
* Acceptance notification July 21, 2014

A two-page abstract of the talk (or the presentation slides, in
case you have it ready) should be submitted by June 16, 2014.
Submission instructions are available at the website:

After acceptance, the author(s) are required to submit a PDF
presentation for publication in the conference proceedings. The
slide set shall contain:

* an industrial challenge or problem definition, and its
importance in the industrial setting;

* potential solutions that have been attempted by the author(s);

* analysis, discussion and conclusions of the results, and
implications of the findings.

The abstracts will be reviewed by the Industry Track Program
Committee and the selected authors will have a chance to present
a talk (20 to 30 minutes) at the ISSRE 2014 conference.
