Papers from all the tracks will be invited to be revised and extended for consideration in a thematic special issue of the Journal of Systems and Software.
Nowadays, people’s lives all over the world have been shaped and empowered by the massive increase in the use of mobile applications. The number and versatility of available mobile applications continue to grow, accommodated by app stores and marketplaces that enable users to download and seamlessly install applications. Mobile platforms are rapidly evolving to continuously integrate diverse and powerful capabilities, including various sensors, cameras, wireless communication channels, as well as on-device memory and disk capacities. As a result of ingeniously applying these technological developments, developers of mobile software are pushing the boundaries with innovative mobile services and exciting mobile applications.
Consequently, due to the rapid development and evolution of mobile software, developers face new software engineering challenges. To address these challenges, researchers must create formally grounded methods that support novel advanced practices and tools.
More details about the Call for Papers will be available soon.
