Software testing is the process of validation and verification of the software product. Effectively software testing will contribute to the delivery of reliable and quality oriented software product, more satisfied users, lower maintenance cost, and more accurate and reliable result. However, ineffective testing will lead to the opposite results, low quality products, unhappy users, increased maintenance costs, unreliable and inaccurate results. Hence, software testing is necessary and important activity of software development process. The importance of testing can be understood by the fact that “around 35% of the elapsed time and over 50% of the total cost are expending in testing programs”.

In recent years, many studies are focusing on the best practices which make stores more attractive and interesting for consumers. The use of advertising addressed to specific consumers is an important topic of research. Furthermore, a growing interest has been put on the ways producers’ and retailers’ knowledge is used to add value to customers’ experiences. The application of new technologies to the point of sales is a promising and relatively unexplored field of study, in particular when considering the introduction of digital content and technologies allowing consumers to interact with products in new ways. Many e-retailers already exploit the opportunities offered by interactive technologies, such as 3D virtual models, in order to enhance consumers shopping experience. Their use in stores, however, is still limited. The development and use of new shopping assistants for supporting and influencing consumers during their shopping experience plays a key
role for both retailers and researchers.


The existing shopping assistant systems are based on shopping trolleys and handled devices. In particular, most of them focus on mobile and ubiquitous computing. Adding digital content to these tools can be a powerful means to influence customers’ experience. The aim is to support consumers, through a user-friendly interface, by giving them information related to products, promotions, new arrivals and so on. The main characteristics are the interactivity and the multimodality, in order to
achieve an efficient, flexible and meaningful feeling of human-computer interaction.

In this scenario, it becomes very useful to understand how consumers’ and products/stores knowledge has to be managed and digitally represented. Besides, it is important to understand how this knowledge will influence customers’ experience once converted in digital content. This special issue solicits papers that contribute to deeply understand the applications of new technologies in retailing and their impact on the design, development and modelling of consumers’ and products’ knowledge in order to improve consumers’ shopping experience and, as consequence, influence their buying behaviour.

Submissions can focus on theoretical and applied research in topics including, but not limited to:
     - Content management for ubiquitous computing in retailing
     - Consumer-computer interaction related to digital content
     - New systems for consumers’ profiling
     - New interfaces for consumers’ personalized communication
     - Consumers’ input modelling
     - Consumers’ knowledge representation
     - Impact of new technologies on consumers’ behaviour in the retail context
     - Segmentation and tracking of consumers’ buying behaviour
     - Transfer of product knowledge to consumers
     - Customized digital contents for supporting consumers’ decision making


Submissions should be of high standard for an international, archival research journal, and will be reviewed according to the strict standards of the International Journal of Digital Content: Technology and its Applications. Papers should not have been submitted or published elsewhere but could be extended or refined versions of conference papers with significant new, original material. Extended versions or refined versions o conference papers are expected to differ from the conference version by at least 30% across all sections . authors are requested to submit their published conference articles and a summary document explaining the enhancements made in the journal version. The manuscript preparation guidelines can be obtained from the International Journal of Digital Content: Technology and its Applications’ web page:  http://www.aicit.org/jdcta.
 

The deadline for submitting manuscripts is January 15, 2010 and authors will be notified of the decision by April 15, 2010. The final manuscripts will be due June 30, 2010. Those interested in submitting a paper are invited to send it to vincenzo.corvello@unical.it AND eleonora.pantano@unical.it

In each growing stage of the individual Software Engineering paradigm, it is realized that each paradigm has its own influence in the software engineering field on the support of its proficiency. Particularly, each paradigm sands on its ability in providing manageable solution to the new problem domains. The degree of manageability is depends on the degree of quantification over the solutions, whereas the quantification consists of the process of measurement and control. Hence the process of the measurement is the key factor for quantification, control and management and from this point of view, it has been recognized that the role of software metrics plays a vital role in the field of software engineering.

20. Special issue on DSAI2010

DSAI - Software Development for Enhancing Accessibility and Fighting Info-exclusion

 Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) play a major role in our lives. However, ICT development which is indifferent to the concerns of social inclusion may raise barriers and increase the gap between the average user and those with special needs, instead of contributing to eliminating this gap and promoting equal rights and opportunities for all.

Senior citizens and others with special needs are often faced with multiple minor disabilities that prevent them from enjoying the benefits of technology and higher quality of life standards. According to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, technology design should take into account accessibility and usability features for the protection and promotion of the human rights of persons with disabilities, in all policies and programmes.

 

Scope
 - Software and Web accessibility
 - Interfaces and interaction
 - Technologies
 - Case studies

36. Special Issue on Trust, Security and Software Engineering in JDCTA

Special Issue on Trust, Security and Software Engineering in JDCTA

Description
Trust & security problem has been attracting more and more attention with the more diversities and amount of interactions in online communities. However, there is usually a misunderstanding that trusted technologies(including trusted computing, trusted software and some other trusted-related things) should based upon the traditional “hard security” theories and technologies, such as model checking, theorem proving, cryptography, authentication technology and so on. In our views, trust is more than security, and modern trust theory is another direction to realize “soft and flexible” system security.

The mission of this special issue is to share research results to problems of Trust, Security and Privacy to identify new issues and directions for future research and development work.


Scope
The program of the special issue will feature research papers, industrial and government presentations, topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:
- trust & reputation modeling

37. New Trends in Computer Networks and Information Security

New Trends in Computer Networks and Information Security

Description
Recent years have witnessed remarkable growth in both online social networking and mobile broadband services. Around one billion people currently use the Internet and they will soon be joined by several billion mobile online devices. The roles of content provider and producer are no longer restricted to a few professional organizations, as more and more users share audio visual content or use community sites to support their common interest. There is a shift away from the traditional client/server model to systems based on the peer-to-peer paradigm, which let users share computational, storage and bandwidth resources. Moreover, with the development of the Internet of Things, millions of wireless sensor networks and RFID readers/writers are connected to Internet. A fully pervasive anytime/anywhere and secure wireless Internet infrastructure will support and drive this trend. So there are so many emerging networks architectures.

44. Intelligence Digital Content Security

Intelligence Digital Content Security

Description
In recent years, Digital content security has captured the imagination of researchers. Digital watermarking, steganography protect digital content and conceal secrets are used as core primitives in digital rights management schemes. Steganalysis and forensics pose important challenges to digital investigators and privacy techniques try to hide relational information such as the actors'' identities in anonymous communication systems. These and other topics share the notion that security is defined by the difficulty to make (or avoid) inference on certain properties of host data, which therefore has to be well understood and modeled.

Description
The Workshop on CMMI based Process Improvement in Small and Medium Sized Enterprises aims at gathering together researchers and practitioners to discuss experiences in the application of CMMI in industrial software organizations. CMMI is one of the most accepted process improvement approaches. In software development CMMI-DEV is applied by many organizations. SEI reports that 60% of the appraised organizations are small and medium sized organizations. Another report shows that this number is increasing. Because a CMMI based process improvement program takes time and is expensive many small and medium size software development organizations are still facing problems in applying CMMI. One goal of this workshop is to exchange experience on how to set up, apply and organize a CMMI based process improvement processes in small and medium size enterprises.

Scope
The topics of interest include, but are not restricted to, the following:

* Case studies and experience reports on successful or failed application of CMMI based improvement programs in industry
* Experiences with the different representations of CMMI (staged and continuous)
* Approaches to select process areas based on the organization뭩 needs
* Application of CMMI in the context of agile development approaches
* Mixed process improvement programs based on CMMI, ITIL, COBIT or other improvement models

73. Advances in Swarm Intelligence

Advances in Swarm Intelligence

Description
Swarm intelligence (SI) is the collective behavior of decentralized,
self-organized systems, natural or artificial. SI systems are typically made up of a population of simple agents or boids interacting locally with one another and with their environment. The inspiration often comes from nature, especially biological systems. The agents follow very simple rules, and although there is no centralized control structure dictating how individual agents should behave, local, and to a certain degree random, interactions between such agents lead to the emergence of 밿ntelligent?global behavior,
unknown to the individual agents. Natural examples of SI include ant colonies, bird flocking, animal herding, bacterial growth, and fish schooling.

Scope
artificial bee optimization, ant colony optimization, artificial fish algorithm, artificial immune system, bat algorithm, bacterial foraging
optimization, cuckoo search, firefly algorithm, intelligent water drops, magnetic optimization algorithm, and particle swarm optimization

80. Special Issue on the Cloud computing and its application

Special Issue on the Cloud computing and its application

Description
Cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. This cloud model promotes availability and is composed of five essential characteristics (On-demand self-service, Broad network access, Resource pooling, Rapid elasticity, Measured Service); three service models (Cloud Software as a Service (SaaS), Cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS), Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)); and, four deployment models (Private cloud, Community cloud, Public cloud, Hybrid cloud). Key enabling technologies include: (1) fast wide-area networks, (2) powerful, inexpensive server computers, and (3) high-performance virtualization for commodity hardware.
The Cloud Computing model offers the promise of massive cost savings combined with increased IT agility. It is considered critical that government and industry begin adoption of this technology in response to difficult economic constraints. However, cloud computing technology challenges many traditional approaches to datacenter and enterprise application design and management. Cloud computing is currently being used; however, security, interoperability, and portability are cited as major barriers to broader adoption.
