Call for Papers


The IWSM Mensura conference is the conference where new ideas from the world of academic research meet practical improvements from industry on topics of measuring software. Each year practitioners and researchers from all over the world gather together to learn about new developments, test new ideas and exchange possible new solutions and applications.

On October 5-7, 2015 the IWSM Mensura conference will be held in Cracow, Poland. The conference venue is the Sheraton hotel.


Software measurement techniques, methods, processes and tools are keys for successfully managing and controlling software development projects. Measurement is essential for any engineering activity and for increasing scientific and technical knowledge regarding both the practice of software development and empirical research in software technology.

The conference focuses on all aspects of software measurement and facilitates the exchange of software measurement experiences between theory and practice.


We encourage submissions in any field of software measurement, including, but not limited to:

  • Software measurement foundations
  • Practical measurement applications
  • Quantitative and qualitative methods for software measurement
  • Measurement processes and resources
  • Empirical case studies
  • Measurement acceptance
  • Enterprise embedded solutions of measurement
  • Metrics validation
  • Measurement for system and software engineering
  • Measurement for integration, and testing
  • Measurement for specific areas (e.g. ECU’s or webservices)
  • Measurement for specific development paradigms
    (e.g. agile or model-driven)
  • Functional size measurement
  • Software Measurement Standards
  • Software estimation
  • Software benchmarking
  • Measurement services
  • Measurement tools
  • Measurement experience and guidance
  • Theory of measurement
  • Measurement paradigms


Papers must be submitted for review by the Program Committee through the Easychair conference management system at: | iwsmmensura2015.

  • Full papers (12 to 16 pages) or
  • Short papers (8 to 10 pages)

Papers should not have already been published elsewhere, nor should they have been submitted to a journal or to another conference.
