Special Issues
Special Issue on Honor of Professor Dr. Guenther Ruhe
Submission Date: 2024-03-31

Call for a Special issue of the Journal of Information and Software Technology on “Guenther´s Scientific Achievements in Honor of Professor Dr. Guenther Ruhe” Guest editors: Maleknaz Nayebi, York University, Canada Barbara Russo, Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy Guilherme Horta Travassos, Federal of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Special issue information: In April 2023, we mourn the passing of Guenther Ruhe, who has been Editor-in-Chief of the IST journal since 2015. Reflecting on his impactful tenure, it becomes challenging to encapsulate the vast array of contributions and achievements made by Guenther over the years. Nevertheless, in commemoration of his legacy, this Special Issue provides an invaluable opportunity to highlight and share some of the significant milestones that marked his dedicated service. Professor Ruhe has advised numerous students, contributed to many organizations and research institutes, and made impactful contributions to the field of software engineering. In particular, his contributions can be clearly observed when considering the following topics, which does not limit the coverage of his work: Release planning; Empirical software engineering; Search-based software engineering; Requirements engineering; Software product management, and; Decision support systems. This special issue honors Prof Ruhe and his impact on the software engineering field. Therefore, it includes invited articles and editorial notes from colleagues and field leaders reflecting on his contributions. Besides we also invite papers from all researchers! These submissions should be impacted by and reflected upon Prof Ruhe’s contributions in the field and linked and referenced to one or more of his contributions to the field of software engineering. Therefore, this is a call for all the authors for whom Guenther Ruhe’s contributions have impacted their current work. These papers will be peer-reviewed, and IST will follow the established review process for special issues. These papers will be part of an ongoing online special issue, and contributions can be published at the time of acceptance. Paper submission opening: December 11th, 2023 Paper submission deadline: March 31st, 2024
