CALL FOR PAPERS

Soft Computing Applied to Software Engineering

Limerick, Ireland, April 12 - 14, 1999

http://scare.csis.ul.ie/scase99

The challenges of Software Engineering are still with us, despite more than
twenty years of research effort. Soft Computing in its various forms offers
promising methods for a wide variety of areas, from classical optimisation
to poorly defined design problems. This workshop aims to explore the
application of Soft Computing techniques to difficult problems in Software
Engineering.

The workshop will include:
invited talks from Forest H. Bennet III, Peter Eades, James Boyle and others
panel sessions
research papers
position papers
system demonstrations

Topics include, but are not limited to, the application of Soft Computing methods such as:
evolutionary algorithms
fuzzy logic
neural networks
simulated annealing
and to Software Engineering problems such as:
metrics driven design
re-modularisation
parallelisation
software visualisation and documentation
software cost estimation
characterisation of design patterns and architectures
clone detection

Intending participants are requested to submit either a research paper (up
to 5000 words), a position paper (about 1000 words), or a brief description
of a system demonstration (about 1000 words plus sample screenshots).
Submissions should be made in postscript by email to scase99@ul.ie, by
January 30, 1999. Authors will be notified of acceptance by February 28,
1999, and camera-ready papers for the proceedings are due by March 12, 1999.

A small amount of support may be available for student participants.
Attendance will be limited to at most 30 participants, in order to encourage
the free flow of ideas. There is no registration fee, but early registration
is recommended to ensure a place. The proceedings (including all
contributions) will be published by the University of Limerick, and a
special issue of a journal is planned. The workshop will be held at the
University of Limerick. Organising committee: Jim Buckley, Tony Cahill, JJ
Collins, Peter Eades, Patrick Healy, Laur Ivan, Conor Ryan, and Alan
Sheahan.
