Internetware 2022, the 13th Asia-Pacific Symposium on Internetware, provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss the trending software technologies in the Internet era.
Internet provides an open global infrastructure for exchanging and sharing resources for people all over the world. The rapid development and the wide application of Internet make it become a new mainstream platform for software to be used, developed, deployed, and executed. With the vision of “Internet as a Computer”, many application styles such as pervasive computing, grid computing, service computing, and cloud computing emerged in this open and dynamic environment.
To support new forms of applications and accommodate the fundamental changes of the underlying supporting platform, software technologies such as service-oriented architecture are proposed for current practices. However, these popular technologies are far from systematic and complete because no uniform software methodology and technology system like the object-oriented one is provided.
Software in the Internet era should autonomously, cooperatively, situationally, emergently, and trustworthily adapt to the new environment. The software entities dispersed on distributed nodes over the Internet, which evolved from objects in object-oriented methodology to software components (component-based software development), now are further turned into self-contained, autonomous and adaptive software services in service-oriented computing of state-of-arts. These software entities are coordinated statically and dynamically in various interaction styles (passively and actively) such as integration, cooperation, and orchestration to achieve flexible design objectives. So a so-called “software-web” instead of information-web is weaved. This software-web as a whole can perceive the changes of open, dynamic, and uncertain environments and respond to them in the way of transforming architectures. Furthermore, the flexible design objective of the software-web is reflected by its exhibiting several compatible goal-directed behaviors according to its up-to-date knowledge about the outside environment.
Therefore, a portmanteau term “Internetware” is used to denote the future software-web in open and dynamic environment, which can be defined as follows: an Internetware system is a software system consists of the self-contained, autonomous entities situated in the distributed nodes of Internet and the coordinators connecting these entities statically and dynamically in various kinds of interaction styles (passively and actively). As a whole, an Internetware system is able to perceive the changes of open and dynamic environment such as Internet, respond to the changes in the way of architectural transformation, and exhibit context-aware, adaptive and trustworthy behaviors in the open and dynamic environment in order to meet its flexible design objectives. Internetware challenges many aspects of software technologies, from operating platforms, programming models, to engineering approaches, etc.

Internet is open, dynamic, and meets a constantly changing environment. Software, being architected like the Internet, developed with the Internet, operated on the Internet, connects the human, cyber, and physical world. Internetware ought to be autonomous, cooperative, situational, evolvable, emergent, and trustworthy, but these requirements pose unique challenges for software technologies to support Internetware's construction, deployment, and use.
This symposium aims to provide an interactive forum where researchers and professionals from multiple disciplines and domains meet and exchange ideas to explore and address the challenges brought by Internetware.

Software systems have been playing important roles in business, scientific research, and our everyday lives. It is critical to improve both software productivity and quality, which are major challenges to software engineering researchers and practitioners. As developers work on a project, they leave behind many digital artifacts. These digital trails can provide insights into how software is developed and provide a rich source of information to help improve development practices. For instance, GitHub hosts more than 57M repositories, and is currently used by more than 20M developers. As another example, Stack Overflow has more than 3.9M registered users, 8.8M questions, and 41M comments. The productivity of software developers and testers can be improved using information from these repositories.
In recent years, software engineering is benefiting from the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques (e.g., machine learning and deep learning). These techniques have shown a great success in addressing various software engineering problems (e.g., code generation, code recommendation, and bug fix and repair). Many papers have applied AI techniques to discover knowledge or build intelligent tools from software artifacts (e.g., specifications, source code, documentations, execution logs, code commits and bug reports) to improve software quality and development process. Mining high quality knowledge from software artifacts is critical to building AI tools. Thus, mining software repositories to learn predictive and quality models is an important part in intelligent software engineering. For this special issue, we seek the full potential of AI on improving both software productivity and quality.
We invite the submission of high-quality papers describing original and significant work in all areas of intelligent software engineering including (but not limited to): 1) Methodological and technical foundations of intelligent software engineering, 2) Approaches and techniques for knowledge discovery in various software artifacts, and 3) Applications of AI techniques to facilitate specialized tasks in software engineering. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
A. Intelligent software engineering techniques
B. Knowledge discovery in software artifacts
C. Intelligent software engineering in specialized tasks
To speed up the review process, and to encourage people to join the Internetware 2022 conference (in Hohhot, China), we setup two rounds of reviews: an Internetware conference round, and a journal round.
In the Internetware conference round, authors are encouraged to submit their manuscripts to the Easychair submission site, You should choose “Intelligent Software Engineering Track” in Easychair. The submissions must have not been previously published or considered for publication elsewhere. Each submission must not exceed 10 pages for all text, figures, tables, and references. All submissions must be in English and in PDF format. Please use the ACM Master article template, as can be obtained from the ACM Proceedings Template pages. Each submission will receive at least three high-quality reviews from our PCs. Each accepted submission must be accompanied by a registration of at least one author and presented at Internetware 2022.
And in the journal round, only the selected best papers will be invited to submit their revisions to the Automated Software Engineering journal. You should choose SI:TBD. The authors should carefully address the comments from the Internetware conference reviewers and prepare a response letter. And these papers will be reviewed by the same three reviewers. Note that only the selected best papers from the Internetware conference round will get invited for possible journal publication.

Best papers will be invited to “Journal of Software: Evolution and Process!”
Software systems, particularly large-scale systems that underwent long-term maintenance and evolution, are the foundation of the modern Internet era. However, these systems are still not rock solid and are vulnerable to delayed releases, defects, cyber-attacks, etc. Such vulnerabilities may cast significant impact on our daily lives or even catastrophic consequences. Unfortunately, it is still an open challenge towards the effective construction and maintenance of such systems due to their complexities and the continuously evolving property.
This special issue focuses on fundamental large-scale software systems, including (but not limited to) operating systems, cloud/distributed systems, middlewares, databases, and server systems. Understanding and characterizing the evolution of such systems can lead to more reliable software systems, and may also pave the path for the new generations of software systems. In particular, this special issue has a strong emphasis on two aspects, “evolution” and “practicality”. On the one side, this special issue has a special focus on the systems’ dynamics over time, aiming to dissecting the challenges, problems and side effects induced by the continuously evolution of such large-scale systems. On the other side, it expects “practical” solutions, such as novel software architectures, scalable testing methods, debugging and diagnosis techniques, to tackle the challenges of evolving large-scale systems.
We call for high-quality original research papers that address the fundamental challenges in the maintenance and evolution of large-scale systems. This special issue will blend standalone submissions and the best papers from the Journal Special Track of the 13th Asia-Pacific Conference on Internetware. Welcomed topics include but are not limited to:
The Internetware Journal Track: Submit via easy Easychair and select the “Evolving large-scale systems” Track. Authors of accepted papers are required to present their papers at the Internetware conference, and the best papers will be invited to this special issue.
Standalone Submissions: We also welcome standalone manuscripts directly submitted to this special issue via the submission site. Please select "Special Issue on Evolving Large-scale Systems" in the submission system. All the papers will be peer-reviewed following the Software: Evolution and Process reviewing procedures.
The submissions should not have been published previously nor be under review. If the submission is an extended work of a previously published conference/workshop paper (including the invited papers from Internetware), the following materials are mandatory:
