Papers related to empirical studies using research methodologies such as surveys, case studies, action research, ethnographies, controlled experiments, experiments or quasi-experiments, among others, are very welcome.

We solicit high-quality papers reporting work-in-progress research related to:

  • Empirical studies, experiments and case studies conducted in the domain of reuse, incl. technical and managerial aspects
  • Empirical evaluations and comparisons of techniques, methods or methodologies for reuse and software product lines
  • Analysis of empirical data and repositories regarding reuse practices
  • Repeatable experiments and experiences on software reuse
  • Methods and techniques that can be applied to study reuse in academic and non-academic environments
  • Design of secondary and tertiary studies (e.g., mapping studies and systematic literature reviews) regarding reuse
  • Experiences and reports that evidence problems and failures implementing techniques for reuse and SPLE

We are interested on experiences and empirical studies that include, but are not limited to:

  • Reuse techniques such as architecture-centric reuse, component-based design and reverse engineering practices.
  • Techniques and methods related to reuse such as domain analysis and modeling, scoping, domain specific languages and variability modelling.
  • Maturity Models and strategies for adopting software reuse.
  • Non-technical factors, such as organization, processes and human involvement, relevant to reuse practices in practice.
  • Economic models and metrics for software reuse.
