        IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance 2001

                FLORENCE, ITALY, 5-9 November 2001,

                        http://www.dsi.unifi.it/icsm2001

        Theme: Systems and Software Evolution in the era of the Internet

ICSM is the major international conference in the field of software and
systems maintenance, evolution, and management.

In the era of the Internet, businesses and end-users have invested in new
technologies and small and large software organizations around the world
are looking for Internet related solutions to evolve and maintain their
new Internet software products.

Internet technologies are strongly impacting system architectures and
business processes and rules. In some cases businesses and end-users
have been overwhelmed trying to keep up with software development and
evolution processes and practices. In addition to novel solutions to
enable the life-cycle of new web-based software systems, huge investments
are necessary to migrate aginglegacy applications to web-enabled
contemporary systems.

ICSM 2001 will address these major changes in the software landscape and
their impact on maintenance and evolution. The focus of the conference
will be to explore the new challenges that the Internet, as a driver for
business changes, poses for software maintenance, and the new opportunities
it opens as infrastructure and enabling technology.

The purpose of the conference is to promote discussion and interaction
between researchers and practitioners. We are particularly interested in
exchanging concepts, prototypes, research ideas, and other results which
could contribute to the academic arena and also benefit business and the
industrial community. ICSM 2001 will be participatory, with working
collaborative sessions and presentations of industry projects. ICSM 2001
will bring together researchers, practitioners, developers and users
of tools, technology transfer experts, and project managers.

The Conference will be held in conjunction with WESS, the Workshop on
Empirical Studies of Software.

Topics of interest include but are not restricted to the following
aspects of maintenance and evolution:
- Methods and theories -Processes and strategies
- Organizational frameworks -Life cycle and process control
- Design for maintenance -Tools and environments
- Internet and distributed systems -Multimedia systems
- User interface evolution -Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS)
- Third party maintenance -Freeware and open source applications
- Program comprehension -Software and system visualization
- Knowledge based systems -Formal methods
- Impact of new software practices -Empirical studies
- Software reusability -Programming languages
- Source code analysis and manipulation -Testing and regression testing
- Models and methods for error prediction -Measurement of software
- Maintenance and/or productivity metrics -Preventive maintenance
- Personnel aspects of maintenance -Reengineering and reverse engineering
- Version and configuration management -Legal aspects and standards
- Management and organization -Remote, tele-work, and co-operative applications

RESEARCH PAPERS
Research papers should describe original and significant work in the
research and practice of software maintenance. Research case studies,
empirical research, and experiments are particularly welcome. Papers should be 2000 - 5000 words in length, in English. Submit them
in PDF or PostScript via email to icsm2001@unisannio.it by 15 January 2001.
A prize of the Journal of Software Maintenance will be assigned at the
Best submitted Paper.

INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS
We welcome proposals for presentations of Industrial Applications.
These can be experience reports from real projects, industrial practices
and models, or tool demonstrations. Submit proposals for Industrial Application
 presentations via email to icsm2001.industry@unisannio.it by 12 March 2001.
 Industrial Applications proposals will be reviewed by a dedicated
sub-committee of the program committee and a 1 page summary of accepted
proposals will be included in the conference proceedings.

TUTORIALS
Tutorials should present software maintenance and evolution topics of
interest to practitioners. Tutorials may be full-day or half-day in length.
Submit tutorial proposals via email to
icsm2001.tutorial@unisannio.it by 12 February 2001.
