Research Paper Submission


Proceedings Publication

Research papers describe innovative and significant work in software process improvement, which is relevant to the software industry. The papers should be readable for a scientific and industrial audience and support claims with appropriately described evidence or references to relevant literature. 18 selected papers will be published in the Springer Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) series. CCIS is a spin off from LNCS and the same typing instructions apply as for the Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series.

Research papers shall reference previous articles from the thematic workshops, find below the online links to the SPRINGER books of the last 10 years.

Review Process

All papers will be reviewed by at least two members of the EuroAsiaSPI² programme committee. Papers will be evaluated according to originality, significance of the contribution, quality of written and graphical presentation, research method applied and appropriateness of comparison to relevant research and literature.

Journal Publication

EuroSPI² 2023 editorial teams will select papers from the book and propose an extended version (50% must be different) to be published in a journal. From 2004 onward EuroSPI² collaborates with WILEY Journal of Software: Evolution and Process (SPI Best Practices),. More cooperations will be announced.

This means that additionally ca. max. 10  articles will be selected for submission of a minimum 50% extended journal publication. For each journal there will be an extra call. Submission of papers is through the EuroSPI submission process.
