Description of the Special Issue

Due to the portability and convenience of mobile devices, mobile apps have surpassed traditional desktop applications as the primary way of accessing the Internet [1]. Many users heavily depend on their smartphones for daily tasks such as reading, shopping, paying and chatting through mobile apps. Different from traditional desktop applications, mobile apps are typically developed under time-to-market pressure and face fierce competition --- over 3.8 million Android apps and 2 million iPhone apps are striving to gain users on Google Play and the Apple App Store, the two primary mobile app markets [2]. Developers need more effective and efficient app development techniques and tools leveraging Automated Software Engineering.

This special issue of the Automated Software Engineering journal focuses on software engineering research and practice supporting any aspects of the automation of mobile app development. We seek innovative papers that address requirements, analysis, generation, maintenance, evolution, testing or any other aspects of automatic development of mobile apps. Papers should describe new or improved ways to handle these aspects or address them in a more unified manner, discussing benefits, limitations, and costs of provided solutions.

Authors should be clear in their paper how their approach, solution, or technology is specific to the mobile context, compared to more traditional software engineering contexts. With “mobile apps” we refer to applications that work on mobile devices, thus, including all the possible alternatives of wearable devices (e.g., smart watches).

Papers extending previously published conference papers are acceptable, as long as the journal submission provides a significant contribution (at least 30%) beyond the conference paper, and the overlap is described clearly at the beginning of the journal submission.

Wholely new submissions accepted and published in the ASE Journal may also have the option to present the work at journal-first track of the ASE conference, subject to the conference journal-first track requirements and assessment of its journal-first track committee.
