Automated Software Engineering


ASE2000 Call for papers

Electronic Abstracts Due: March 24, 2000
Paper Submission Deadline: March 31, 2000

The IEEE International Conference on Automated Software Engineering brings together researchers and practitioners to share ideas on the foundations, techniques, tools, and applications of automated software engineering technology. Both automatic systems and systems that support and cooperate with people are within the scope of the conference, as are models of software and software engineering activities. ASE'00 encourages contributions describing basic research, novel applications, and experience relevant to automating software engineering activities. Solicited topics include, but are not limited to:

The IEEE International Conference on Automated Software Engineering was formerly known as the Knowledge-Based Software Engineering Conference. In conjunction with the name change three years ago, the conference expanded to encourage worldwide participation and to reach other scientific communities concerned with formal methods, partial evaluation, process support, human-computer interface support, requirements engineering, reverse engineering, testing, or verification & validation.

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, at IEEE Computer Society Press. In addition, several of the highest quality papers will be selected for a special issue of the Journal of Automated Software Engineering (Kluwer). ASE'00 will also include invited talks, tutorials, panel discussions, a doctoral symposium, and project demonstrations, for which separate calls for participation will be issued.

Submission Information

Papers should not exceed 6000 words, with full-page figures counting as 300 words. Papers that exceed the length restriction will not be reviewed.  Papers will be reviewed by at least three program committee members. All papers, especially application papers and experience reports, should clearly identify their novel contributions. For guidelines see:


All papers should be submitted electronically to ase00@ittc.ukans.edu in PostScript, MS Word, or PDF format, on or before March 31, 2000.  In addition, a single hard copy should be mailed to Perry Alexander at the address below; it serves as a backup should printing problems occur, and it may arrive later than the electronic submission date. To expedite the review process, each paper's title, authors, abstract, keywords, and contact author's email address should be submitted by March 24, 2000 through
