CFP: ESEC/FSE 2007 European Software Engineering Conference/Foundations of Software Engineering

http://www.idt.mdh.se/esec-fse-2007

               CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
=====================================================================

  Joint 11th European Software Engineering Conference and
15th ACM SIGSOFT Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering

                      ESEC/FSE 2007
           Dubrovnik, Croatia, September 3-7,2007
            http://www.idt.mdh.se/esec-fse-2007

====================================================================

The biennial series of joint ESEC and FSE provides a lively and
outstanding forum where researchers and practitioners can report
and discuss recent research results and trends, as well as their
impact on practical application in all areas of software engineering.
ESEC/FSE has continuously attracted participants from industry and
academia, confirming that the venue provides topics that are up-to-date,
significant, and interesting. ESEC/FSE 2007 intends to continue this
tradition by offering a strong technical program associated with an
exciting list of events,  including keynote talks by leaders in the
field, invited state-of-the-art seminars, workshops, a doctoral
symposium, and the new Widened Software Engineering (WISE) presentations.

Important submission dates
Workshop proposals:              March  5, 2007
Technical papers:                March 19, 2007
WISE papers:                     April  3, 2007
Doctoral Symposium abstracts:    May   14, 2007

Contributions to the above events on any field of Software Engineering
are invited, including, but not limited to:

- Requirements Engineering              - Component-based SW Engineering
- Specification and Verification        - Model Driven Engineering
- Software Architecture and Design      - Web Applications
- Distributed Systems and Middleware    - Analysis and Testing
- Dev. Paradigms and Sw Processes       - Service Oriented Applications
- Open Standards and Certification      - Tools and Environments
- Empirical Software Engineering        - Software Metrics
- Sw economics and Human Resources      - Evolution and Refactoring
- Software Quality and Performance      - Mobile and Embedded System
- CaseStudies and Experience Reports
- Dependability (safety, security, reliability)

The following types of contributions are sought:

Technical Papers: must present results of theoretical or empirical
research, clearly identifying their contribution to the state of the art
and/or their potential usefulness for industry. Experience papers which
report interesting "lessons learned" of benefit to the broad ESEC/FSE
audience are also welcome. All submissions must be original work, and
must not have been previously published, nor be in consideration for
publication, elsewhere.

WISE Papers: The new Widened Software Engineering (WISE) track is
explicitly aimed at broadening the internationality of the ESEC/FSE
conference by dealing with SE research specializations outside the
established community. WISE papers should address particular interests,
goals and challenges faced by academic and industrial researchers in the
field of SE in countries which are not usually present in ESEC/FSE and
akin events.

Workshop proposals: Workshops of one or two days  are intended to
provide a forum for members of a focused research community to present
preliminary research results and discuss position-style papers.
Workshops provide an opprotunity for the rapid dissemination of ongoing
research activities.

Doctoral Symposium abstracts: PhD students working in the area of
software engineering can present and discuss their research with senior
researchers of the Software Engineering community.
