Software Measurement Associations


During the Joint Conference of the 23nd International Workshop on Software Measurement (IWSM) and the 8th International Conference on Software Process and Product Measurement (Mensura) there will be organized Software Measurement Associations (SMA) session.

All national SMA’s are invited to propose a papers to be presented during IWSM/Mensura 2013 in Ankara.


Sharing local (national) experience, studies and practical know-how, also with cooperation with industry, in field of software measurement techniques, methods, processes and tools.

In this year, the SMA’s session is specially dedicated to topic of “Optimal way of gathering and modeling user requirements to effectively use them in FSM methods” but of course other aspects of software measurement – in theory or practice – ale welcome.


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

under the main topic of SMA’s session:

  • Integration of software requirements models with FSM methods
  • Automation of FSM usage with software requirements models
  • Case studies on local FSM extensions

under general scope of IWSM/Mensura conference:

  • 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
