ASWEC 2010 Conference Theme

"Engineering software for economic growth"

The 21st Australian Software Engineering Conference - ASWEC2010 - will be held in the Central Business District of Auckland, New Zealand from the 6th to the 9th of April 2010. This is the first time that ASWEC is being held in New Zealand, and reflects the synergies between the Australian and NZ SE communities. Auckland, the "City of Sails", is the gateway to New Zealand. It is also New Zealand's largest city and is consistently ranked amongst the top lifestyle cities in the world. It has a sub-tropical climate, the Waitemata and Manukau Harbours, and a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities for visitors including world class restaurants and accommodation.

Established in 1986, ASWEC is a leading technical forum for the exchange of peer-reviewed research outcomes and industry best-practice in software engineering. It attracts a wide range of participants including software engineering researchers, practitioners and educators from across Australia and New Zealand, and from other international locations. The overall programme will provide numerous opportunities for academic and industry participants to interact with and learn from each other. Also for the first time, there will be a Doctoral Symposium to give Phd students the opportunity to get feedback on their work from research leaders.

Research Papers: Authors are invited to submit full papers describing original research in all areas of software engineering. Papers describing theoretical or empirical research, new techniques and tools, and in-depth case studies are all welcome. Submissions should be original and must not have been published previously or currently be under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Research paper submissions will be peer reviewed (DEST Category E1) based on originality, significance, clarity and relevance to the field of software engineering. As in previous years, we hope the ASWEC proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. One author from each accepted paper is required to register as a full-fee delegate and present the paper at the conference.

All submissions must be written in English and must be prepared in the IEEE 8.5x11 inch two-column format (http://www2.computer.org/portal/web/cscps). Manuscripts may not exceed 10 pages in length. Manuscript preparation in Latex is strongly encouraged. Manuscripts are to be submitted electronically - see the ASWEC 2010 submission page for further instructions.

Submissions due           16 Oct 2009      
Acceptance notification   7 Dec 2009      
Final versions due       11 Jan 2010     

Industry Papers: The objective of industry papers is to discuss experiences (both good and bad), obstacles, and lessons learned when applying innovative software development practices in the 'real world'. Experiences from practitioners provide valuable input into future research directions and allow others to learn from successes and failures. Industry papers are an
important way of sharing experiences between practitioners and of helping the software industry improve its work practices.

Authors are invited to submit either extended abstracts (minimum 2 pages) or full papers (maximum 10 pages) describing practical experiences in all areas of software engineering. Industry papers should be based on actual practice, and should cover all aspects of the experience - strengths and weaknesses, successes and challenges. Submissions will be assessed on originality, clarity, significance and relevance.

One author from each accepted industry paper is required to register as a full-fee delegate and present the paper at the conference. Manuscripts are
to be submitted electronically - see the ASWEC 2010 submission page for further instructions.

Submissions due           7 Dec 2009      
Acceptance notification  11 Jan 2010     
Final versions due        8 Mar 2010      

Tutorials and Workshops: Tutorial and Workshop proposals that have wide appeal to the software engineering community are sought for ASWEC 2010. Tutorials and workshops (half or full day) will run on the first day of the conference. Please submit your proposals detailing the topic, background, intended audience, anticipated number of attendees and justification for this estimate, presenters and their affiliations, along with anticipated time requirements following the guidelines on the ASWEC 2010 tutorials and workshops page.

Proposals due             5 Oct 2009      
Acceptance notification   7 Dec 2009      
Confirmation of programme 8 Feb 2010      
Final versions due        8 Mar 2010      

Doctoral Symposium: The objective of the Doctoral Symposium is to give doctoral students the opportunity to present their research and receive advice and constructive feedback from research leaders. Current PhD students are invited to submit their proposals and preliminary results. The symposium will use a workshop format with a formal presentation by students followed by discussion with the panel. Details for submission are available from the ASWEC 2010 website.

Submissions due           7 Dec 2009      
Acceptance notification  11 Jan 2010     
Final versions due        8 Mar 2010
