The size, complexity, and criticality of software-intensive systems require innovative and economic approaches to development and evolution. In today's competitive world, software quality is a key to success and stability of organizations. Software process and product improvement (SPPI) aims at significantly increasing both the quality of software-intensive systems and the productivity of software development.

The SPPI track will bring together researchers and practitioners to share SPPI innovations and experiences. The track is an integral part of the 42nd Euromicro Conference on Software Engineering and Advanced Applications (SEAA) 2016.

Suggested topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

+ Organizational and business views on process improvement
+ Value-based software engineering
+ Global software engineering

+ Quality assurance, inspections, testing

+ Software process improvement and process standards
+ Process modeling, composition, and enactment
+ Process simulation

+ Product management
+ Quantitative models for development processes and products
+ Dependability, safety, security, or usability

+ Open source software and software quality
+ Agile and lean development

+ Software reuse, product lines, and software ecosystems
+ Innovative approaches to software development
+ Software evolution

+ Empirical studies and experimental approaches

In particular, we encourage submissions demonstrating the benefits or limitations of SPPI approaches through case studies, experiments, and quantitative data.

A selection of best papers will be invited to submit extended versions for tentative publication in a Special Section of the journal of Information and Software Technology published by Elsevier.
