As you can see from the attached call for papers, I have agreed to act as
coordinator for a minitrack on software process improvement at the 1996 Hawaii
International Conference on Systems Science, which will be held 3-6 Jan 1996.
Please pass this CFP along to your colleagues who are involved with software
Software Technology Track
29th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, HICSS-29
Maui, Hawaii - January 3-6, 1996
Call For Papers and Referees
In addition to the eight minitracks in High Performance Distributed Systems,
the Software Technology Track of HICSS-29 is introducing two additional
minitracks in other areas of software technology. The two new minitracks
will focus on: 1) industrial applications of formal methods in software
development, and 2) software process improvement. The Call for Papers and
Referees for the original eight minitracks can be obtained via anonymous ftp
from csftp.unomaha.edu in the directory pub/hicss/hicss-29/Software-Track.
This Additional Call for Papers and Referees can also be found in the
same directory. Any newly announced minitacks will appear in this file on
an ongoig basis.
We invite papers that may be theoretical, conceptual, tutorial, or descriptive
in nature. Those papers selected for presentation will appear in the Conference
Proceedings. HICSS-29 is sponsored by the University of Hawaii.
The Conference Proceedings are published by the IEEE Computer Society. A
collection of the accepted papers will be considered for inclusion in a
separately bound volume to be determined (publisher and exact dates of
publication) at a later time.
Adjunct Minitrack 2: SOFTWARE PROCESS IMPROVEMENT
Software is vital to our modern society, and improving the processes for
developing and maintaining software has become a critical business advantage
for software suppliers. The focus of this minitrack is experience reports on
quantified improvements in productivity, quality, time to market, and customer
satisfaction resulting from software process improvement. We are seeking case
studies on what works and doesn't work for different application domains, life
cycles, government contractors, commercial software vendors, etc. Other
topics that will be emphasized are the models, approaches, and tools that
support software process improvement, e.g., SEI's CMM, Bootstrap, ISO 9001,
and ISO SPICE.
