Call For Papers

20th International Conference on Product-Focused Software Process Improvement (PROFES 2019)
November 27-29, 2019, Barcelona, Spain

PROFES, the International Conference on Product-Focused Software Process Improvement, is among the top recognized software development and process improvement conferences. The 20th edition of PROFES will be held in Barcelona, Spain, from November 27 to 29, 2019. PROFES organization is composed of international recognized researchers in software engineering. PROFES 2019 is part of a series of conferences presented by

The objective of PROFES is to provide a premier forum for practitioners, researchers, and educators to present and discuss experiences, ideas, innovations, as well as concerns related to professional software development and process improvement driven by product and service quality needs. PROFES especially welcomes contributions emerging from applied research to foster industry-academia collaborations of leading industries and research institutions.

PROFES conferences encourage the exchange of ideas that help explore, understand, and model phenomena in software engineering from the point of view of process-product relationships. Traditionally, PROFES provides topics, which are up-to-date, important, and interesting to both practitioners and researchers. To ensure that PROFES will retain its high standards and that it will keep focusing on the most relevant research issues, we are looking for original research on current trends in software engineering aspects addressing products and services. Further, we particularly encourage the submission of studies reporting on the application of respective methods or technologies in real settings.

PROFES encourages the submission of papers reporting relevant industry experiences and related results. Industrial papers describing innovative proposals are welcome, but also contributions that, although not original in the absolute sense and rigorous from the scientific point of view, describe experiences and application cases useful to increase the knowledge of the scientific and industrial communities regarding the use of processes, methods and techniques at the state of the art. The papers will have to pay particular attention in highlighting the industrial effects of the solutions presented and how they contribute to the growth of the PROFES community.
