Emerging and Multidisciplinary Approaches to Software Engineering

Software engineering is inherently a socio-technical effort with best practices based on social interaction. However, these practices are likely to vary with cultural aspects that cannot be externalized or captured by automation tools alone. Therefore, engineering software products requires a vision of thinking across boundaries for the future which goes further than what we have so far conceived. In particular, novel software development approaches are closely tied to the traditional concerns of social factors that affect the success of software development as a whole. To address these concerns and establish a strategy that will achieve a broader vision, researchers seek ways to adopt techniques from multiple academic disciplines and draw knowledge from various areas including but not limited to management, sociology, anthropology, psychology, etc. Ultimately, applying best practices from multiple academic disciplines is critical for future success in engineering sustainable software products.

Call for Papers


Please follow the following steps for submitting a paper:

  • Your thematic topic paper should comprise 10-12 pages.
  • Your paper has to be conform to the Springer CCIS format which is the same as the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) format (please see the author guidelines of Springer)
  • The paper has to be uploaded to the EuroAsiaSPI² conference website (see below).
  • Authors of accepted papers will be asked to write a final paper of 10 to maximum 12 pages and to prepare a 20 minutes PowerPoint presentation.
  • The final paper has to be uploaded to the EuroAsiaSPI² conference website again.
  • Papers shall reference the SPI Manifesto (find relationships to values and principles or propose new values and principles to be added).

Note: To publish the paper in the proceedings the authors have to sign a copyright form and at least one of the authors has to present the paper at the conference. The paper will be published in printed form and electronically and therefore we need all source files.

Thematic Paper Topics

  • Results of a multidisciplinary research with an impact on software engineering challenges and emerging trends. Impacts or potential impacts for software engineering should be clearly identified and articulated.
  • Software Engineering problems that need to be solved from a spectrum of disciplines including, but not limited to, the social sciences; industrial management; engineering economics, various related engineering disciplines, and cyber-physical systems.
  • Software Engineering problems that need to be solved in the cloud, connecting systems to the cloud, and managing big data in the cloud.
  • Software Engineering problems that need to be solved when implementing Artificial Intelligence algorithms and machine learning where the same software depending on learning factors provides different output.
  • Software engineering problems that need to be solved to use open source software in highly safety critical environments.
  • Software engineering architectural design patterns recommended for the integration of different disciplines.
  • Studies addressing software development problems emerging from research partnerships with communities of interests such as game technologies, virtual or augmented reality research.
  • Research reflections on the long-term engagement of software practitioners using motivational techniques such as gamification.
  • Software engineering research toward new development models, tools, and methods that are conducted in interdisciplinary teams.

SPRINGER Book Series

EuroAsiaSPI² is publishing an annual SPRINGER book and the EuroSPI books show a total of 970000 (nine hundred seventy thousand) chapter downloads. The workshop papers will form a chapter for this thematic topic in the SPRINGER book.
Note: This thematic topic will be published in the IET Software journal.


Important Information

Key Contributors

The CfP is related (but not closed) to the workshop, which is conducted at the EuroAsiaSPI 2020 conference. For all potential authors who have received an invitation for an extended version of their workshop or conference paper, please note that that we only can consider submissions that are extended (at minimum 50% and the title of the extended version must clearly and unmistakably differ from the title of the article presented at the EuroAsiaSPI conference). Each paper will be (blind) reviewed by at least 3 reviewers. This special issue may not only contain papers from the conference, and this is a public/open call for papers.

Selected papers from the workshop will be published in IET Software (an SCI
indexed journal) as Special Issue, please see the link below.

The IET - Digital Library

Interactive Workshop Approach

Each presentation will be discussed. A panel discussion at the end shall come up with a set of key questions from the audience to be answered by the panel (authors).
