Description of the Special Issue

Program comprehension encompasses both human activities for comprehending the software and technologies for supporting such comprehension. It plays a central role in most of the phases of the software development life cycle, where it helps facilitate reuse, inspection, maintenance, reverse engineering, reengineering, migration, and extension of existing software systems. The special issue invites submission on novel and innovative research results and industrial experience papers in the area of program comprehension. We especially encourage the submission of extended papers from the 29th International Conference on Program Comprehension (ICPC 2021).

The evaluation of papers will be based on:
