This book contains the proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Evaluation of Novel Approaches to Software Engineering (ENASE 2016). This conference is sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC) and held in cooperation with the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP), ACM Special Interest Group on Software Engineering (ACM SIGSOFT) and the Association for Enterprise Information (AFEI).
The mission of ENASE is to be a prime international forum to discuss and publish research findings and IT industry experiences with relation to the evaluation of novel approaches to software engineering. The conference acknowledges necessary changes in systems and software thinking due to contemporary shifts of computing paradigm to e-services, cloud computing, mobile connectivity, business processes, and societal participation. By comparing novel approaches with established traditional practices and by
evaluating them against systems and software quality criteria, ENASE conferences advance knowledge and research in software engineering, including and emphasizing service-oriented, business-process driven, and ubiquitous mobile computing. ENASE aims at identifying most hopeful trends and proposing new directions for consideration by researchers and practitioners involved in large-scale systems and software development, integration, deployment, delivery, maintenance and evolution.
The meeting is complemented with the Special Session on Model-Driven Innovations for Software Engineering (MDI4SE) and the Special Session on Collaborative Aspects of Formal Methods (COLAFORM).
ENASE received 79 paper submissions, including the special sessions, from 28 countries, 13% were accepted as full papers which shows the intention of preserving a high quality forum for the next editions of this conference.
The conference program includes a panel and three invited talks delivered by internationally distinguished speakers, namely: Sergio Gusmeroli (TXT e-solutions SPA, Italy), Wil Van Der Aalst (Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, Netherlands) and Ernesto Damiani (EBTIC-KUSTAR, United Arab Emirates).
To recognize the best submissions and the best student contributions, several awards based on the combined marks of paper reviewing, as assessed by the Program Committee, and the quality of the presentation, as assessed by chairs at the conference venue, are conferred at the closing session of the conference.
We would like to express our thanks to all participants. First of all, to the authors, whose quality work is the essence of this conference. Next, we thank all the members of the program committee and the auxiliary reviewers for their diligence and expert reviewing. We must deeply thank the invited speakers for their excellent contribution in sharing their knowledge and vision. Finally, special thanks to all the members of the INSTICC team whose collaboration was fundamental for the success of this conference.
We wish you all an inspiring conference and an unforgettable stay at Rome, Italy. We look forward to having additional research results presented at the next edition of ENASE, details of which are available at http://www.enase.org/.
