ASE 2011 : IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automated Software Engineering
Conference Series : Automated Software Engineering
Call For Papers
The IEEE/ACM 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. ASE 2011 will include technical papers, experience papers, invited keynotes, tutorials, workshops, tool demonstrations and a doctoral symposium.
ASE 2011 will be held in Lawrence, Kan., U.S., home to The University of Kansas. Recently rated by USA Today as one of the top five college towns in the United States, Lawrence is a vibrant community, steeped in history, with active arts and music scenes. Lawrence is easy 50-minute drive from the Kansas City International Airport (MCI) and 30 minutes from downtown Kansas City. www.visitlawrence.com/
Call for Papers
Software engineering is concerned with the analysis, design, implementation, testing and maintenance of large software systems. Automated software engineering focuses on how to automate or partially automate these tasks to achieve significant improvements in quality and productivity. ASE 2011 encourages contributions describing basic research, novel applications and experience reports. In all cases, papers should carefully describe the relevance of their contributions to the automation of software engineering tasks. Solicited topics include, but are not limited to:
* Automated reasoning techniques
* Component-based systems
* Computer-supported cooperative work
* Configuration management
* Domain modeling and meta-modeling
* Empirical software engineering
* Human-computer interaction
* Knowledge acquisition and management
* Maintenance and evolution
* Model-based software development
* Model-driven engineering and model transformation
* Modeling language semantics
* Open systems development
* Product line architectures
* Program understanding
* Program synthesis
* Program transformation
* Requirements engineering
* Specification languages
* Software architecture and design
* Software visualization
* Testing, verification and validation
* Tutoring, help and documentation systems
* Software analysis
The IEEE Computer Society will publish accepted papers in the conference proceedings. In addition, authors of selected papers will be invited to revise and re-submit extended versions of their conference papers for consideration for a special issue of the Journal of Automated Software Engineering, published by Springer.
ASE 2011 accepts two categories of conference paper submissions: (i) technical papers; and (ii) experience papers:
Technical papers should describe innovative research in automating software development activities or provide automated support to users engaged in such activities. They should describe a novel contribution to the field and should carefully support claims of novelty with citations to the relevant literature. Where a submission builds upon previous work of the author(s), the novelty of the new contribution must be clearly described with respect to the previous work. Papers should also clearly discuss how the results were validated.
Experience papers should describe a significant experience in applying automated software engineering technology and should carefully identify and discuss important lessons learned so that other researchers and/or practitioners can benefit from the experience. Of special interest are experience papers that report on industrial applications of automated software engineering.
Submissions under both categories should not exceed 10 pages in the IEEE two-column conference format (see note below). For guidelines and formatting files, see www.computer.org/portal/site/cscps/ (under Information for Authors).
Papers submitted to ASE 2011 must not have been previously published and must not be under review for publication elsewhere. Papers must strictly adhere to submission guidelines. Authors are strongly encouraged to explain the relationship between the submission and any other related works from the authors, including ones under review elsewhere, in the appropriate place in the submitted paper.
Papers will be administratively rejected and will not be reviewed if they exceed the 10-page limit or use condensed formatting.
All papers that conform to submission guidelines will be peer-reviewed by program committee members.
