Special issue on Empirical Evidence on Software Product Line Engineering

************************************* Special issue on Empirical Evidence on Software Product Line Engineering Empirical Software Engineering: An International Journal ************************************* ==== SCOPE ==== Software product line engineering (SPLE) is a paradigm that advocates the reusability of software assets and the rapid development of new applications for a target domain. These objectives are achieved by capturing the commonalities and variabilities between the applications of a target domain and through the development of comprehensive and variability-rich models. Software product line engineering practices offer desirable characteristics such as rapid product development, reduced time-to-market, quality improvement, and more affordable development costs as a result of a systematic management of the variabilities in a set of products (the product line) leading to methodical reuse of software assets. In light of these achieved benefits, the software product line community has received very significant attention both in research and in industry. However, a recent systematic literature review showed that only a limited portion of the proposed work actually offers serious or effective empirical evidence regarding the appropriateness, usability and/or effectiveness of their work. This special issue seeks submissions in areas pertaining to empirical evidence of success or failure of software product line or emerging software product line approaches. Contributions in the following forms are especially encouraged: * Industrial experience reports, case studies and action-research in SPL * Applied SPL approaches with a strong empirical component * New research methods for evaluating SPL research * Measurement, comparison and development of empirical methods in SPL * Studies on SPL technology transfer to industry * Longitudinal studies of SPL evolution over time * Process improvement in SPLs supported by empirical evidences * Cost-benefit analysis for SPLs in practice ==== TIMELINE ==== Submission Deadline: 20-January-2014 First Notification: 24-March-2014 Major Revisions Due: 25-April-2014 Second Notification: 16-June-2014 Minor Revision Due: 4-August-2014 Final Recommendations: 22-October-2014 ==== PAPER SUBMISSION DETAILS ==== Authors are invited to submit original contributions to
