Call For Papers
First International Conference in Software Engineering for Defence Applications (SEDA 2011)
18th October 2011 Rome, Italy
Software Engineering aims at modelling, measuring, enhancing and implementing quality software development process and product in a rigorous way by means of requirements elicitation and analysis, system design and development, testing, and maintenance. Fast evolution of software tools, methods, and techniques as well as market demand require software engineers to be prompt in evaluating the performance, the quality and the suitability of software products and processes. This is particularly important for software for defence applications that needs to maintain high levels of security and robustness. Such software very often anticipate the needs in the civil environment.
There is a growing need for research that report and debate practical implications of Software Engineering in the defence environment. There is a need of software performance evaluation in the real settings through controlled experiments as well as case and field studies.
For this reason, we welcome original contributions on new Software Engineering models, approaches, methods, and tools and their evaluation as well as business and economic aspects of IT in the context of defence applications. In particular, we welcome submissions on cost/benefit analysis, new business models, organizational evolution, and business intelligence systems and their evaluation in the context of defence organizations, processes, and systems.
Conference topics include, but are not limited to:
- Performance Management in Private and Public Sector
- Economics of IT in the Military Sector
- Innovation Theories, Models and Practices
- eGovernment in Private and Public Sector
- Strategic Management: Processes, Practices and Structures
- Organizational Change and Impact of ICT in Public (Military) Sector
- Information and Knowledge Management
- Software and System Quality and Metrics and their Impact in the Military sector
- Information Systems, Innovation Transfer, and new Business Models
- Business Intelligence Systems and their strategic role in the Military Sector
