Promoting formal measurement and estimation practices

On October 29-30, 2020 the IWSM Mensura conference was held in Mexico City, Mexico. In this first conference of the new decade, which coincides with the celebration of the 30th International Workshop on Software Measurement (IWSM) and the 15th International Conference on Software Process and Product Measurement (MENSURA), while in the industry there is a convergence of different technologies such as AI, ML, IoT, BigData (Indutry 4.0), in which software is a fundamental part, we looking forward to confirm the importance of applying formal measurement practices to obtain good results in software development and promote the maturity of software engineering.

We invite proposals from researchers and practitioners in all fields of software measurement. This year, we particularly encourage proposals from experienced industry practitioners and researchers on the state-of-the-art and the future of Information Technology (IT) cost estimation and control. The topics of concern are listed in (but not limited to) the following Software Measurement Topics:

  • Measurement automation
  • Measuring technical debt
  • Measurement processes and resources, e.g. agile or model-driven
  • Usage of big data analytics for improving products and processes
  • Empirical case studies
  • Software measurement data mining
  • Decision support systems based on software measurement
  • Data driven decision making
  • Visualizations and dashboards
  • Measurement-as-a-Service
  • Service-and product-oriented measures
  • Measuring the software for the industry 4.0 projects
  • Benchmarking
  • Resources (cost,effort,time) Estimation
  • Formal estimation in agile environments
  • Portfolio estimation
  • Trends in estimation
  • Software size approximation techniques
  • Effort estimation based on early size approximation
  • Software measurement in Artificial Intelligence
  • Effort estimation for machine learning software
  • Effort estimation for Industry 4.0 software
  • Sizing software ecosystems
