Fast Abstract Program Committee:


A Fast Abstract is a lightly-reviewed, two-page technical article that requires a short talk at the conference. The goal is to promote current work, research, practices, opinions, experiences, and issues. This is an early communication of technical work and does not always require completed results like that of a journal publication. Authors can introduce new ideas to the community or state positions on controversial issues. Fast Abstracts are an integral and important part of ISSRE. Accepted contributions will be published in the Supplemental Proceedings of the 25th IEEE International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering, but they will not be uploaded to IEEE Xplore. Authors will present a short talk at the symposium. Fast Abstracts sessions have been among the most attended in past ISSRE editions, with contributors as diverse as young students and distinguished members of the community.

Scope:  Authors should explain the contribution to the field and novelty of their work, making clear its current status. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Analysis and prevention of virus attacks
  • Dependable Web services
  • Electronic commerce reliability
  • Empirical studies and metrics
  • Fault-tolerant and robust software
  • Formal reliability assurance methods
  • Internet reliability engineering
  • Network system reliability and security
  • Reliability and performance of mobile systems
  • Reliability measurement
  • Reliable adaptive and autonomous systems
  • Reliable model-driven engineering
  • QoS of distributed systems
  • Secure software engineering
  • Software aging and rejuvenation
  • Software architecture reliability
  • Software reliability models
  • Software safety analysis
  • Software test effectiveness
  • Software testing and verification
  • Survivability of large systems
  • Testable model-driven engineering
  • Tools and automation

Review and Evaluation Criteria: Each submission will be lightly reviewed by two to three members of the Fast Abstract Program Committee, and final decisions will be made about which submissions to accept for presentation at the conference. Submissions will be evaluated based on their technical merit, relevance, and significance.

Submission: Your submission must conform to the IEEE Format and Submission Guidelines and should not exceed two pages (including all text, figures, references and appendices). The results described must be unpublished and should not be under review elsewhere. Each accepted submission will be allotted a maximum of two pages in the final proceedings and must be presented by one of the authors. The final version of accepted papers must conform to the IEEE Format and Submission Guidelines.
