Call for Papers

Software engineering is concerned with the analysis, design, implementation, testing, and maintenance of large software systems. Automated software engineering focuses on how to automate or partially automate these tasks to achieve significant improvements in quality and productivity. ASE 2007 encourages contributions describing basic research, novel applications, and experience reports. In all cases, papers should carefully articulate the relevance of their contributions to the automation of software engineering tasks. The ASE On-line Bibliography can serve as a reference for potential contributors:

Solicited topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Automated reasoning techniques
  • Component-based systems
  • Computer-supported cooperative work
  • Configuration management
  • Domain modeling and meta-modeling
  • Human-computer interaction
  • Knowledge acquisition and management
  • Maintenance and evolution
  • Model-based software development
  • Modeling language semantics
  • Ontologies and methodologies
  • Open systems development
  • Product line architectures
  • Program understanding
  • Program synthesis
  • Program transformation
  • Re-engineering
  • Requirements engineering
  • Specification languages
  • Software architecture and design
  • Software visualization
  • Testing, verification, and validation
  • Tutoring, help, and documentation systems

ACM Press will publish accepted papers in the conference proceedings. In addition, authors of selected papers will be invited to revise and re-submit extended versions of their conference papers for consideration for a special issue of the Journal of Automated Software Engineering, published by Springer.

ASE 2007 accepts two categories of paper submissions. Long paper submissions should report on a substantial contribution supported by an appropriate evaluation. Each accepted long paper will be presented in a plenary session of the main conference program. Long paper submissions may be accepted as short papers if the program committee finds the contribution or the evaluation not substantial enough. Long paper submissions must not exceed 10 pages in the conference format. Short paper submissions typically discuss exciting new work that is not yet mature enough for a long paper and lacks evaluation. Each accepted short paper will be presented in a poster session. Short paper submissions must not exceed 4 pages in the conference format.

Papers submitted to ASE 2007 must not have been previously published, and must not be under review for publication elsewhere. Papers must strictly adhere to submission guidelines. Papers exceeding the given page limits or using condensed formatting will be administratively rejected and will not be reviewed. All papers that conform to submission guidelines will be peer-reviewed by program committee members. All papers must be submitted electronically by June 11, 2007 (abstracts must be submitted by June 4, 2007).
