SEAA 2016 SMSE Track

I am co-organizer of the Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies in Software Engineering (SMSE) Track at the 42nd Euromicro Conference on Software Engineering and Advanced Applications (SEAA 2016).

Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies have become an important and phenomenal research method in software engineering in the recent decade. A Systematic literature review is a form of secondary study that uses a well-defined methodology to identify, analyse 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, SEAA 2016 will have a special Track entitled: Systematic Literature Reviews and Mapping Studies in Software Engineering (SMSE). The SMSE track will bring together researchers and practitioners to share their results and experiences with Systematic Secondary Studies. The track is an integral part of the 42nd Euromicro Conference on Software Engineering and Advanced Applications (SEAA) 2016.
