      CALL FOR PAPERS
       
      Elsevier Journal of Systems and Software - Special Issue
      Integrating Agile and Product Line Engineering Techniques
       
      Deadline: 15 December 2006
       
      BACKGROUND
      The need to rapidly develop high quality, complex software continues to
      drive research in a number of (separate) areas in the software engineering
      community. For example, software product line development techniques have
      been of keen interest as means to re-use and tailor technical assets
      including models (requirements specifications, design), implementation, and
      test cases. A main focus in this area is to effectively create sets of
      related products by re-using and tailoring carefully managed assets, using
      plan or model driven approaches. In a separate community of researchers and
      practitioners, agile development techniques have also been proposed to
      rapidly develop software by focusing on developing working code. Based on 12
      principles, agile techniques seek to minimize the amount of documentation,
      process definition, and model development. It is interesting to note that
      although the goals of the two techniques have similarities (rapidly develop
      high quality, complex software), the solutions to realize the goals in the
      techniques seem to be at odds. Recently, however, new techniques have been
      proposed to integrate the two areas, creating Agile Product Line Engineering
      techniques.
       
      TOPICS
      This JSS special issue on Agile Product Line Engineering aims to provide a
      forum to address open research issues and present new techniques for Agile
      Product Line Engineering. As the Elsevier Journal of Systems and Software
      seeks to bridge theory and practice, both research and practical articles
      are encouraged. Theoretical articles must include validation of the work;
      practical articles must include a discussion of the related work in the
      literature.
       
      Potential topics include but are not limited to:
      - Agile product line processes for project management
      - Agile product line processes for configuration management
      - Tools, techniques, and notations for
         o Agile requirements modeling for product-line development
         o Agile design (architecture, analysis, detailed) modeling for
            product-line development
         o Code generation in agile product-line development
         o Agile testing for product line development
      - Software quality assurance techniques for agile product line engineering
      - Maintenance issues in agile product-line development
      - Empirical assessment of agile product line techniques
       
      SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
      Articles should conform to the following formatting and page limits:
      - Single column, 11 pt. font, double spaced, 1" margins
      - Max. page limit: 25
       
      Authors should submit their article in pdf format to the guest editors by
      e-mail: kcooper@..., franch@...
       
      All papers will be subject to a thorough peer review process.
      Only original work not concurrently submitted elsewhere will be considered
      for publication. Original extensions to previous work are also encouraged
      unless prohibited by copyright. For details see the Guide for Authors
      accessible from the Elsevier Journal of Systems and Software home page.
