This special issue of IEEE Software explores the challenges in developing compliant software systems. Typically, organizations face conflicting objectives, with compliance policies possibly hindering innovation, slowing down the product development process, or making the whole process most costly. The goal of software engineering for compliance is to bridge the gap between the software engineering community and the compliance community. The articles in this special issue explain the nature and extent of this domain from different viewpoints, the technical challenges it poses, novel software engineering methods for supporting compliance, and the current state of the art.
