"Redefining the Human-Tool Partnership in Software Engineering"

Engineering complex software systems involves costly human-intensive and
error-prone processes. Field studies have indicated various limitations
of traditional software engineering methods and tools. A combination of
traditional approaches with techniques and results established in the
area of Soft Computing has great potential to overcome many of these
limitations and produce more powerful tools. Soft Computing methods are
characterized by paradigms that are tolerant of imprecision, uncertainty
and partial truth. These paradigms have been developed to cope with, and
in some cases, exploit such vagueness. It is the goal of the SCASE
workshop series to bring together researchers and practitioners from
industry and academia who are interested in discussing and exploring the
benefits of such approaches in all areas of software engineering. We are
interested in applications of all kinds of Soft Computing techniques
such as

* Fuzzy Logic.
* Artificial Neuronal Networks.
* Genetic Algorithms.
* Agent-Systems
* Preference logics and Soft Constraints
* Logics handling uncertainty and inconsistency, e.g.,
* Possibilistic logics,
* Probabilistic logics,
* Credibilistic logics, etc
* Non-monotonic logics
* Rough sets

to various problem domains in Software Engineering, including (but not
limited to)

* Distributed and parallel systems.
* Tool Environments
* Formal methods.
* Knowledge-based software engineering.
* Measurement, metrics, and empirical methods.
* Reengineering and Software Maintenance
* Requirements engineering.
* Quality assurance.
* Reuse.
* Risks.
* Safety and security.
* Software architecture and design.
* Software documentation.
* Software process, management, and improvement.
* Software project management.
* Testing, analysis, and verification.

Important Dates:
* Submission of abstracts: September 15th, 2000
* Submission of papers: October 1st, 2000
* Notification: November 1st, 2000
* Camera ready version: December 1st, 2000

Submission Guide Lines:
-----------------------
Authors are invited to submit research and experience papers. Research
papers should describe work that advances the current state of the art.
Experience papers should be of broad interest and should describe
insights gained from practical application of Soft Computing to Software
Engineering. The program committee will evaluate each contributed
research and experience paper based on its relevance, significance,
clarity, originality, and correctness.
In the first step, the abstract of the paper written in English must be
electronically submitted before (and including) September 15, 2000 at
http://scase.cyberchair.org. Submission will be possible starting August
10, 2000. In the second step, the full paper must be electronically
submitted before October 1, 2000. The paper must be written in English
and not be longer than 6000 words. Papers arriving late or clearly
longer than the limit may be rejected immediately, without being
reviewed.
