Dear colleagues,

We invite you to attend the upcoming International Workshop on “Sustainable Software Systems Engineering”, October 26, 2015 to be held in conjunction with DASC-15: The 13th IEEE International Conference on Dependable, Autonomic and Secure Computing, 26-28 October 2015, Liverpool, UK.

* URL: http://sustainabilitydesign.org/ssse15/
* Date: Monday, 26 October 2015
* Time: 09:00-17:00
* Location: Liverpool, UK.


As there is no seperate workshop day rate the DASC-15 organising committee have agreed that workshop participants can register as an IEEE Student Member (250 GBP), which also includes access to the whole conference. No proof of student status or IEEE Student membership is required.

Registration is now open. Please select IEEE Student membership (250 GBP) participant registration fee.


Jurys Inn Liverpool Hotel, 31 Keel Wharf, Liverpool, L3 4FN.


Sustainability can be viewed from a range of different dimensions. This workshop is principally interested in technical sustainability, which can be defined as the ability to maintain and evolve artificial systems (such as software) over time. A generally accepted definition of sustainability is the capacity to endure that is measured by time. However, the generality of this definition renders it meaningless for software engineers and developers to enact upon. In addition, it does not get at the heart of what makes a software product endure over time. What are the underlying factors that result in software sustainment? While a number of communities have attempted to understand and address the challenges of sustainability from their different perspectives, there is a fundamental lack of understanding of: the concept of sustainability; how it relates to software artifacts and software systems; and the wider implications of the software development process and the impact of software products on the different dimensions of sustainability. Despite an increasing interest in the topic, the concept of sustainability is not well understood in the field of software engineering. What does sustainability mean in the context of software engineering? How do software engineers design software products that are sustainable? How do we quantify sustainability from a software engineering perspective? The aim of this workshop is to:

* Identify challenges, opportunities, and best practices in areas of interest for sustainable software systems engineering.
* Define the research agenda for sustainable software systems engineering.
* Establish a network for research software engineers and researchers.

The emphasis is on discussion and collaboration, with a goal of collaboratively producing a paper describing the state-of-the-art on sustainable software systems engineering following the workshop.
