CFP: Software Engineering and Data Engineering SEDE 2008

http://sce.cl.uh.edu/sede08/

Deadline for paper submission:   February 22, 2008

CALL FOR PAPERS
 
SEDE-2008
 
17th International Conference on 
Software Engineering and Data Engineering
 
June 30 - July 2, 2008, Los Angeles, California  USA
 
Sponsored by the International Society for Computers and Their Applications (ISCA)
Conference Website: http://sce.cl.uh.edu/sede08/ 

The 17th 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 ubiquitous and pervasive computing on software engineering and data engineering.  Applied case studies will report on exemplary solutions deployed in industries like aerospace, telecommunications and military. 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 given for a paper presented at the conference. The conference will cover a broad range of topics including, but not limited to, the following topics.  

Software Engineering 

Software Modeling, Development, & Maintenance
