ISSSE 2023

The 16th International Summer School on Software Engineering

University of Salerno, Italy

June 12-15, 2023


The 16th International Summer School on Software Engineering (ISSSE 2023) aims to provide a place to let Master's and fresh Ph.D. students get in touch with top Software Engineering scholars and the research they pursue. The school typically attracts Ph.D. students from all around the world.
This year ISSSE includes the 1st edition of the Engineering Machined Learning-Intensive IoT Systems (EMELIOT), and it is co-located with the 15th Seminar on Advanced Techniques & Tools for Software Evolution (SATToSE).
ISSSE attendees are invited to submit papers and presentation abstracts to these events.

EMELIOT is a thematic workshop on topics connected to the development, design, testing, maintenance, and evolution of complex IoT systems enabled by machine learning algorithms. EMELIOT seeks to foster discussion on the next advances and challenges concerning the software engineering aspects of machine learning-intensive IoT systems.
EMELIOT accepts presentation abstracts (max two pages) that are reviewed for relevance. The workshop does not have proceedings, but the contributions will be available on this website. Presentation abstracts can either be novel research results or results that have already been published or are ready to be submitted to a conference or a journal. Of particular interest are summaries that try to provoke discussion, initiate challenging new avenues, etc.

SATToSE hosts invited talks, paper presentations, and tutorials, fostering interactions among participants and stimulating lively debates and discussions around software evolution and maintenance. In particular, the first day of ISSSE overlaps with SATToSE. On this day, invited talks will alternate with SATToSE seminars. Find more information at

Venue and Accommodation

ISSSE will be held at the University of Salerno's computer science department, located a few kilometers from Salerno at the junction of motorway intersections—more details at

The best way to reach the campus from abroad is first to go to Salerno. The nearest International Airport is Naples Capodichino (code NAP). You can take a bus (Alibus) from the airport to the central station in Naples and get off here for connections to Salerno through high-speed and traditional train services.

Frequent buses connect the city to the university. Specifically, buses number 7 and 17 ("Linea 7" and "Linea 17" in Italian) arrive at the university from the Salerno train station (Salerno FS).
More information on the bus route can be found on the main page of Busitalia.
A dedicated app, QuiBus Campania, is available for Android and iOS and allows rapid individuation of available routes. The app can be downloaded for Android or iOS (Italian language only!).

Salerno is located about 60 km south of Naples and is considered a gateway to the Amalfi Coast. It offers much, from a medieval city center that takes you back to its ancient and prestigious origins to a seafront with modern and avant-garde architecture.

Regarding accommodation, we recommend you use Booking. You can find possible solutions at the following link. Please modify the filters to match your needs.
