CFP: Conference on Software Engineering and Data SEDE 2007


SEDE-2007 Call for Papers
16th International Conference on Software Engineering and Data
July 9-11, 2007   =    Las Vegas, Nevada USA

Paper Submission Deadline February 26, 2007 
Notification of Acceptance April 30, 2007 
Registration and Camera-ready Manuscripts May 20, 2007 

The 16th SEDE Conference seeks high quality submissions in all areas of
Software Engineering (SE) and Data Engineering (DE). This year the
conference puts special emphasis on the impact of parallel computing on
software engineering and data engineering. Applied case studies will
report on exemplary solutions deployed in industries like automotive,
aerospace, telecommunications and finance. In the SE section particular
emphasis will be placed on techniques for software specification and
design of software/hardware components and the modeling of system
architectures. In the DE section, the emphasis this year is on high
performance algorithms that learn patterns from large volumes of data,
learn and predict events, adapt to situations, rationalize, provide
autonomous control, and assist in executive decision-making. The
conference also includes a BEST PAPER AWARD. The conference will cover a
broad range of topics including, but not limited to:

Software Engineering 
Software Modeling, Development, & Maintenance 
Software requirements engineering 
Software Verification and Model Checking 
Re-engineering and Reverse Engineering 
AI and Knowledge-based software engineering
