The 28th International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering (ISSRE) - IEEE

Welcome to the premier conference on the theory and practice of software systems reliability!
ISSRE is an annual event that allows the top tier of research and industry to interact. The 2017 Edition will be held in Toulouse, France. This vibrant city is the center of the European aerospace industry. It also hosts hordes of hi-tech and IT businesses companies, and counts many research and Higher Education Institutions.
We invite you to be a part of the success of ISSRE 2017!

NEW: The program is now available online.

The best Industry-Academia Technical Conference in Software Engineering

Most conferences cater either to the academia or the industry, but rarely bring the two togther. We are unusal. Our data tells us that we are almost evenly split between reseachers and senior technical people from industry. This is a huge accomplishment for any conference. And, it was no accident. The conference leadership has targeted this goal and created programs that encourages academic papers to be industry focused, and industry papers that share data and practice.  Over the past decade, we are credited as one of the few ACM or IEEE Software conferences that brings in the highest number of senior technical people from Industry. Our gratitude is to you, the participant, for helping us create this unique community.

A rich program that will keep you busy in different sessions all 4 days.

Research & Industry Papers

Research papers are extensively reviewed by a large program committee and the selected papers are coveted. An Industry committee separately reviews papers for the Industry track looking for relevance and applicability. ISSRE has some of the best Industry case studies reported.

Paper Submissions

We are a peer-reviewed Conference. Anyone can submit papers into categories of their choice. There a number of workshops run in parternship with this conference.  All papers are peer reviewed by technical committees. ISSRE draws from a vast group of professionals who represent some of the finest talent across the globe. We strive to define the future of the software engineering practice in methods that drive automation, leverage AI and make our systems secure, robust, and efficient to develop.


ISSRE Workshops have picked up considerable momentum with some becoming regulars and meeting year after year at ISSRE (e.g., Embedded Systems Reliability, and Software Rejuvenation). We hope to build these communities and seed new ones that are vital to current interests in Research and Industry.
