in conjunction with IEEE COMPSAC 2007, Beijing, July 23-27, 2007
Developing Intelligent Software Tools To Support Software Engineering
In recent years, the use of knowledge engineering in software engineering tool development has seen a steady increase. The reason for it is that knowledge-based software engineering tools have made positive contributions towards improving the efficiency of the software development process and the quality of software products. Yet, the application and development of a knowledge-based software engineering tool to support software engineering practices remain to be challenging issues due to the large amount of software engineering knowledge involved and the complexity of the software development process. Issues that still need to be investigated are: the collection and efficient representation of software engineering knowledge, methods for the development of intelligent software engineering tools, the scale, scope and maintenance of the knowledge presented in the tool, the integration of such tools into mainstream software development, etc.
This workshop is intended to provide an effective forum for researchers and industry practitioners to discuss the issues, challenges, needs, and solutions in building knowledge intensive software engineering tools. The workshop brings together software engineering researchers, software tool developers, and industry practitioners to exchange innovative ideas and state-of-the-art research results in knowledge based software tools development, and share experience and lessons learned from academic research projects as well as from real world software tool application projects. The topics for submissions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Proposed duration: There will be four sessions in the workshop and there will be a panel discussion following the presentations at session 4.
All the people who are involved in software engineering tool development using knowledge-based approaches. Researchers, including research students, practitioners, software tool vendors, and people who come from other research communities and are interested in software tool development are all welcome to the workshop.
20, 2007 deadline for paper
Original papers not being submitted to journals or other conferences and workshops will be considered. All submitted papers will be reviewed by the program committee according to its originality, significance, correctness, presentation and relevance. We encourage authors to present position papers on practical studies and experiments, critique of existing work, emerging issues, and novel ideas under development.
Papers must be
submitted electronically via the
KASET 2007 Submission Page. Manuscripts will be limited to 6 pages
including all figures, tables, and references. The format of submitted
papers must follow the IEEE conference proceedings guidelines (i.e., 8.5" x
11", Two-Column Format (PDF,
DOC); Layout Guide (PDF,
It should be noted that all IEEE COMPSAC conference proceedings are published by IEEE Computer Society Press (CS Press). All CS Press Publications are captured in the online IEEE Digital Library, and professionally indexed through INSPECR and EI Index (Elsevier's Engineering Information Index).
The Program Committee is being formed. Those interested in joining may contact the Workshop chair by supplying following information:
We expect and welcome the participation of researchers and practitioners of software engineering tools, software tool developers, and industry practitioners who use and commercialize software engineering tools. Those with interest in developing knowledge intensive software engineering tools are also welcome.
Enterprises and research centers developing software engineering tools that can be used in supporting software engineering practices are encouraged to propose demos. Our objective is to explore the best strategies and methodologies for knowledge intensive software engineering tool development across all domains relevant to the software industry and research.
