CALL FOR PAPERS


As for previous editions, any topic in connection with software engineering & systems engineering as well as any application area are eligible (information systems, process management, EAI, transaction processing, e-services, Web-based systems, multimedia systems, distributed systems, real-time systems, embedded systems, e-computing,...). However, the following topics, in the context of distributed and collaborative development, will be particularly appreciated:
- Software variability: specifications, configuration and reconfiguration (on-line, guided by desired features), variant creation mechanisms, product lines and families, impact on development and validation processes, ...
- Systems engineering tools, techniques, and methods: requirements, analysis, specification, testing, V&V,...
- Process engineering: evaluation, improvement, approaches, flexible processes, extreme programming, co-design, concurrent engineering, workflow management, distributed development, virtual teams, experience feedback, knowledge management...
- Project management: cost and delay estimation, indicators & dashboards, experience feedback, risk management, value analysis, customer-contractor relationship management,....
- Requirements & specification engineering: modeling, prototyping, simulation, scenario-based analysis, goal-directed approaches, formal methods, multifaceted reasoning, approaches based on natural language processing, V&V... 
- Software & systems architecture: interoperability, urbanization, enterprise models integration, information systems coupling and decoupling, EAI, evolution, non-functional features, distribution constraints, agents, object-orientation, mobile and adaptive applications,...
- Reengineering: architecture, code, documentation, reconfiguration mechanisms... 
- Components & reuse: frameworks, components, COTS, product lines, composition mechanisms, customizing, distributed components, interoperability between frameworks, metamodels, generative development, variant creation, generic programming, aspect orientation, archiving & retrieval, distribution, reuse & Internet, testing in the presence of third party components, validation, certification...
- Quality control & assurance: V&V, testing, metrics, reliability, assessing non-functional characteristics (dependability, usability...), assessing customer satisfaction...
- Web-based software and systems engineering tools and methods (multimedia, XML...), or conversely, software & systems engineering tools and methods for Web-based applications and systems: architecture, design, testing, assessment (complexity, reliability, integrity, maintainability, performances, quality, scalability...)

Papers submitted may concern industrial implementations or experiments, describe significant results from ongoing projects, or deal with socioeconomic issues associated with software & systems engineering.


Instructions to authors

The submission and selection of the proposed interventions will be conducted as follows:

1- Submit, before June 15, 2004, a text of at least 2 pages, in English, including the title of the paper, an extended abstract of at least 500 words, and the address, phone and fax numbers as well as the email address of the authors. If already available, a complete text (about 20,000 characters) would be welcome.

2- The authors chosen will be notified as from July 15, 2004

3- Authors of accepted abstracts should provide, before September 15, 2004, a text not exceeding 20,000 characters, figures included in the form of a diskette or a file, in Word, attached to an electronic message. Final papers will be submitted to the International Program Committee before publication in the Conference Proceedings available during the event.
