Theme



For over two decades now, researchers and practitioners have pushed forward the modelling, analysis and development of systems and software product lines rather than individual systems or software products. The distinguishing feature of the underlying engineering approach is to capture the commonalities and variability among individual variants explicitly and to manage variability-intensive systems and software throughout their entire life cycle, from requirements elicitation to runtime operation and maintenance. 



The novel Horizon Europe Programme targets the development of advanced technologies and methodologies for reliable and efficient distributed software applications in cloud-to-edge-to-IoT systems. Also the software product line community needs to keep up with the pace at which such applications evolve and provide adequate support for the software-intensive systems of the future, for example in challenging domains such as Smart Cities, Smart Health and Industry 4.0. This special issue is a step forward to such systems and software product lines of the future.



Topics of interest related to Systems and Software Product Lines of the Future include, but are not limited to:

Submission Guidelines



The call for this special issue is an open call. We invite innovative research with a sound scientific or technological basis and validation. We accept submissions of original and previously unpublished manuscripts and we especially encourage the submission of revised and extended papers from the 25th International Systems and Software Product Line Conference (SPLC 2021). Surveys, (systematic) literature reviews and mapping studies are out of the scope of this special issue and will be desk-rejected. All submissions must be supported by appropriate arguments and validation through case studies, experiments or comprehensive comparisons with other approaches or benchmarks. If a previous version of the manuscript has been published in a conference or journal, then authors must explicitly explain the novelty of this new submission and provide at least 30% new material.



All manuscripts and any supplementary material should be submitted through the Elsevier Editorial System at http://ees.elsevier.com/jss. Follow the submission instructions given on this site. During the submission process, select the article type "VSI:SPLC2021" from the "Choose Article Type" pull-down menu. All submissions must adhere to the general principles of the Journal of Systems and Software articles. Submissions have to be prepared according to the Guide for Authors, available on the journal website, and must follow the format specified in the JSS Guide for Authors https://www.elsevier.com/journals/journal-of-systems-and-software/0164-1212/guide-for-authors.
