Preliminary Call for Papers


The IEEE International Conference on Automated Software Engineering brings together researchers and practitioners to share ideas on the foundations, techniques, tools and applications of automated software engineering technology. Both automatic systems and systems that support and cooperate with people are within the scope of the conference, as are models of software and software engineering activities. ASE-99 encourages contributions describing basic research, novel applications, and experience relevant to automating software engineering activities. Solicited topics include, but are not limited to

The IEEE International Conference on Automated Software Engineering, formerly called the Knowledge-Based Software Engineering Conference, provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss the application of automated reasoning and knowledge representation to software engineering problems. In conjunction with the name change two years ago, the scope of the conference expanded to encourage international participation and to reach other scientific communities concerned with formal methods, partial evaluation, process support, human-computer interface support, requirements engineering, reverse engineering, testing, or verification & validation.

All accepted papers will be published in the proceedings. In addition, several of the highest quality papers will be selected for a special issue of The Journal of Automated Software Engineering (Kluwer). ASE-99 will also include invited talks, tutorials, panel discussions, and project demonstrations for which separate calls for participation will be issued. Following on the success of previous years, ASE-99 will again feature a doctoral consortium for selected thesis students whose work has not yet reached a publishable stage.
