Call for Paper

The Joint Conference of the 31th International Workshop on Software Measurement (IWSM) and the 16th International Conference on Software Process and Product Measurement (MENSURA) will be held on September 28-30, 2022 in Cesme, Izmir, Turkey. IWSM-MENSURA is the premier international conference on software measurement. Over the past three decades, the conference has built its reputation by attracting leading-edge researchers together with talks, tutorials and discussions by the leaders and innovators in the field. The main goal is to share experiences, challenges and solution approaches to facilitate technology transfers from best measurement and estimation-related practices developed by researchers and world industry experts.

IWSM-MENSURA is one of the pioneer conferences in attracting industry participation with each year 50-60% of its participants from industry, either as speakers or as attendees. Therefore, IWSMMENSURA is quite unique in its richness of discussions on the applicability of theoretical measurement research in the field.

Important Note: Within the context of travelling uncertainty due to various travel constraints in the Covid 19 virus context, we are offering the option for either physical presence or virtual participation. We would be delighted if all authors manage to attend, but are aware that special circumstances are best handled by having flexible options.

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:

• Measuring and quantifying value
• 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
• Sizing Functional and Non-Functional Requirements
• Measurement and estimation practices in Agile Software Development
• Formal estimation in agile environments
• Portfolio estimation
• Trends in estimation
• Software size approximation techniques
• Effort estimation based on early size approximation
• Software measurement and cost estimation in Artificial Intelligence
• Software measurement and cost estimation in Blockchain, Game Development, Metaverse
Building and other emerging technologies
• Effort estimation for machine learning software
• Effort estimation for Industry 4.0 software
• Sizing software ecosystems
• Data science and data analytics
• Measurement theory for data science and AI
• Measurement and Data Analytics in the era of Artificial Intelligence
• Monitoring and Evaluation in the era of Big Data and Artificial Intelligence

Submission Guidelines
• All submissions must be done electronically in PDF format via the IWSM 2022 Easy Chair submission site.

• From 2022 onwards, we require that authors use the new CEUR-ART style for writing papers to be published with CEUR-WS.  An Overleaf page for LaTeX users is available at You can also download an offline version with the style files from It also contains DOCX template files.

• Papers must be in English, and must not exceed 8 pages for full papers and 4 pages for short papers. The title page must contain a short abstract clarifying the relation of the paper with the topics above.

• Paper submissions must be original contributions that have neither been published previously nor submitted to other conferences or journals while being submitted to IWSM-Mensura 2022.

Authors are encouraged to adhere to the best practices of Reproducible Research (RR), by making available data and related tools for reproducing the results reported in their papers.
• For each accepted paper, at least one author must register to the conference and present the paper. Final paper presentations must be submitted one week before the conference to allow posting them on the conference website on time for the conference itself.

We’re planning to publish IWSM-Mensura 2022 proceedings through IEEE or CEUR.
