ISSRE is the premium conference that focuses on the theory and practice of software systems reliability engineering. Over the past 20+ years we have grown to be recognized as the voice of software reliability. From its humble beginnings in 1990, it has become a conference that has a unique element to it: a rare combination of strong research and industry participation.
Unlike the conferences which are either centred academically or industrially, we are a rich combination of both! In recent years, our data tells us that we are almost evenly split. This is a huge accomplishment for any conference. And, this was no accident. The core leadership of the conference has targeted this goal and created programs that allow the top tier of research and industry to interact on issues of current importance. That we have actually approached this target over the past five to eight years is of immense satisfaction to us. Our gratitude is to you, the participant, for helping us create this unique community.

Topics of interests

ISSRE 2016 is focused on innovative techniques and tools for assessing, predicting, and improving the reliability, safety, and security of software products. ISSRE also emphasizes industrial relevance, rigorous empirical studies and experience reports on existing software systems. ISSRE covers a broad range of topics. The list below identifies several, but certainly not all:
Call for Research papers

The main research track at ISSRE 2016 is soliciting original, unpublished research papers in three categories: (1) full research (regular) papers, (2) practical experience reports, and (3) wild and provocative ideas (WAP) papers. Papers will be assessed with criteria appropriate to each category. ISSRE looks for works exploring new territory, continuing a significant research, or reflecting on practical experience. While full research manuscripts should explore a specific technology problem and propose a complete solution to it, with extensive experimental results, practical experience reports are expected to provide an in-depth exposition of practitioner experiences and empirical studies. On the other hand, WAP papers are expected to present either work currently in progress or less developed but highly innovative ideas related to areas relevant to ISSRE, aiming at inspiring discussion among conference attendees and getting people thinking about open research challenges. Submissions will be judged on originality, significance, correctness and impact. Authors will have a chance to rebut the reviews within 800 words over the period of July 10th to July 12th.
There will be a best paper award given to a paper in the main research track. Full research papers and practical experience reports are eligible for the award. Extended versions of selected papers will be invited for potential publication in a special issue of the Journal of Systems and Software (JSS - pending approval).

Papers must be written in English, and be formatted according to the IEEE Computer Society Format Guidelines. Papers that exceed the page limits specified below, or are outside the scope of the symposium, or do not follow the formatting guidelines will be rejected without review. Manuscript page lengths (all in double column, IEEE conference style format):

Research papers: 10 pages + 2 pages (for references and appendices)

Experience reports: 10 pages + 2 pages (for references and appendices)

WAP papers: 6 pages
