Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies in Software Engineering (SMSE)




Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies have become an important and productive research method in software engineering in the past fifteen years or so. A Systematic literature review is a form of secondary study that uses a well-defined methodology to identify, analyze and interpret all available evidence related to a specific research question in a way that is unbiased and (to a degree) repeatable. A Mapping study is a broad review of primary studies in a specific topic area which aims to identify what evidence is available on the topic. To encourage the submission of Systematic literature studies, the SMSE track at SEAA 2023 will bring together researchers and practitioners to share their results and experiences in this area.


Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:


  • Organizational and business views on process improvement
  • Value-based software engineering
  • Global software engineering
  • Quality assurance, inspections, testing
  • Software process improvement and process standards
  • Process modelling, composition, and enactment
  • Process simulation
  • Product management
  • Quantitative models for development processes and products
  • Software architecture
  • Dependability, safety, security, or usability
  • Open source software and software quality
  • Agile and lean development
  • Software reuse, product lines, and software ecosystems
  • Innovative approaches to software development
  • Software evolution
  • Empirical studies and experimental approaches


Furthermore, papers on methodological issues and tool support for Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies are very welcome.


The conference proceedings in the last years have been published by the IEEE Computer Society. The format is the IEEE two-column proceedings format (8 pages for full papers and 4 pages for short papers).


Submission will be handled via EasyChair; please find general submission information for SEAA on the conference homepage.
