Call for Papers

Electronic Abstracts Due: May 31, 2005
Paper Submission Deadline: June 6, 2005

The IEEE/ACM 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'05 encourages contributions describing basic research, novel applications, and experience reports relevant to automating software engineering activities. Solicited topics include, but are not limited to:

Automated reasoning techniques Process and workflow management
Automated software specification Program understanding
Automated software design and synthesis Re-engineering
Category and Graph-theoretic approaches Reflection- and Metadata approaches
Component-based systems Requirements engineering
Computer-supported cooperative work Reuse
Configuration management Specification languages
Domain modeling and meta-modeling Software architectures
Human computer interaction Software design and synthesis
Knowledge acquisition Software visualization
Maintenance and evolution Testing
Modeling language semantics Tutoring, help, documentation systems
Ontologies and methodologies Verification and validation
Open systems development  


Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. In addition, authors of a selection of papers from the conference will be invited to revise and re-submit their papers for consideration for a special issue of the Journal of Automated Software Engineering (Springer). ASE'05 will also include invited talks, tutorials, panel discussions, doctoral symposium, and research demonstrations, for which separate calls for participation will be issued.


Papers should not exceed 10 pages in the conference format ( Papers exceeding the length restriction will not be reviewed. Papers will be reviewed by at least three programme committee members. All papers, especially application papers and experience reports, should clearly identify their novel contributions. Please see the ASE on-line Bibliography at as a reference for potential contributors. All papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format by June 6, 2005 (abstracts should be submitted by May 31). Information regarding electronic submission will be available at the conference website

Do not use the IEEE Proceedings Format for ASE2005. Please use the ACM Proceedings Format.
