Topics

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 2008 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. Solicited topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Automated reasoning techniques
  • Component-based systems
  • Computer-supported cooperative work
  • Configuration management
  • Domain modelling and meta-modelling
  • Empirical software engineering
  • Human-computer interaction
  • Knowledge acquisition and management
  • Maintenance and evolution
  • Model-based software development
  • Model-driven engineering and model transformation
  • Modelling 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.

Kinds of Submissions

Research and Experience Papers

ASE 2009 accepts two categories of Conference Paper submissions, i) Technical Papers, and ii) Experience Papers:

Technical Papers: should describe innovative research in automating software development activities or providing automated support to users engaged in such activities. They should describe a novel contribution to the field and should carefully support claims of novelty with citations to the relevant literature. Where a submission builds upon previous work of the author(s), the novelty of the new contribution must be clearly described with respect to the previous work. Papers should also clearly discuss how the results were validated.

Experience Papers: should describe a significant experience in applying automated software engineering technology and should carefully identify and discuss important lessons learned so that other researchers and/or practitioners can benefit from the experience. We are especially interested in experience papers that report on industrial applications of automated software engineering.

Submissions under both categories should not exceed 12 pages in the 2-column conference format (see note below). Please consult the information contained in the guidelines and formatting files.

Papers submitted to ASE 2008 must not have been previously published and must not be under review for publication elsewhere. Papers must strictly adhere to submission guidelines. Authors are strongly encouraged to explain the relationship between the submission and any other related works from the authors, including ones under review elsewhere, in the appropriate place in the submitted paper.

Papers will be administratively rejected and will not be reviewed if they:

  • Exceed the 12-page limit
  • Use condensed formatting

All papers that conform to the submission guidelines will be peer-reviewed by program committee members. All papers must be submitted electronically by

Tutorial Proposals

Tutorials are an integral component of the ASE conferences. They either provide an intensive introduction to an evolving or emerging research topic or allow attendees to develop skill in the application of some ASE technique or tool. ASE 2009 invites proposals for half-day/full-day tutorials. To submit tutorial proposals: call for proposals

Tool Demonstrations

Tools are central to automated software engineering. Hence, tool demonstrations will have a prominent role in the conference. ASE 2009 solicits submissions for tool demonstrations related to automated software engineering. Tools can range from alpha-versions to fully developed products that are being prepared for commercialization. Products that are already being commercialized will not be accepted.

Doctoral Symposium papers

The ASE 2009 Doctoral Symposium seeks to bring together PhD students working on automated software engineering and give them the opportunity to present and to discuss their research within the ASE community in a constructive atmosphere. Specifically, the symposium aims to provide a setting whereby students receive feedback on their research and guidance on future directions from a broad group of advisors, foster a supportive community of scholars and a spirit of collaborative research, and contribute to the conference goals through interaction with other researchers and conference events.

Workshop proposals

(Submission deadline past)

ASE 2009 invites submissions of workshop proposals. The workshops co-located with the conference provide a forum for a group of typically 25 to 40 participants to exchange opinions, views, advancing ideas, and discussing preliminary results on topics related to software engineering research and applications. Workshops should not be seen as an alternative forum for presenting full research papers. The workshops may be one or two days long and will be held before the conference on November 16-17.
