Call for Papers


Software measurement techniques, methods, processes and tools are keys for successfully managing and controlling software development projects. Measurement is essential for any engineering activity and for increasing scientific and technical knowledge regarding both the practice of software development and empirical research in software technology.

The conference focuses on all aspects of software measurement and facilitates the exchange of software measurement experiences between theory and practice.


We encourage submissions in any field of software measurement, including, but not limited to:

  • Software measurement foundations
  • Practical measurement applications
  • Measurement processes and resources
  • Empirical case studies
  • Measurement acceptance
  • Functional size measurement
  • Software estimation
  • Software process measurement and improvement
  • Quantitative and qualitative methods for software measurement
  • Measurement for specific areas, e.g. web services
  • Measurement for system engineering
  • Measurement for integration, and testing
  • Metrics validation
  • Measurement services
  • Measurement tools
  • Measurement experience and guidance
  • Theory of measurement
  • Measurement paradigms
  • Enterprise embedded solutions of measurement
  • Software benchmarking
  • Software process improvement frameworks and measurement
  • Statistical process control for software processes


Authors should submit paper proposals through the Easychair system at:

  • Full papers (5 to 10 pages) or
  • Short papers (3 to 6 pages)

Papers should not have already been published elsewhere, nor should they have been submitted to a journal or to another conference. At least one among the authors of each paper accepted must register for the conference and commit to paper presentation. All papers submitted must follow the CPS format.

Accepted and presented full papers and short papers will be included in the conference proceedings, which will be submitted to the IEEE Computer Society Digital Library (CSDL), and IEEE Xplore. A selection of the accepted papers will be invited to revise and re-submit extended versions of their conference papers for consideration for publication in a Journal (under negotiation).


The main idea of the workshops is to bring both practitioners and researchers to one platform and exchange ideas on particular topics of importance. Workshop proposals should be described in one or two A4 pages and submitted directly to the Workshops Chair via <>.
