    The 26th IEEE/ACM International Conference on
      (ASE 2011)

     November 6-10, 2011, Lawrence, Kansas, USA,



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. ASE 2011 will include technical
papers, experience papers, invited keynotes, tutorials, workshops,
tool demonstrations, and a doctoral symposium.

ASE 2011 will be held in Lawrence, Kansas, U.S., home to The University
of Kansas. Recently rated by USA Today as one of the top five college
towns in the United States, Lawrence is a vibrant community, steeped
in history, with active arts and music scenes. Lawrence is easy
50-minute drive from the Kansas City International Airport (MCI) and
30 minutes from downtown Kansas City. For more information visit

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 2011 encourages contributions describing
basic research, novel applications, and experience reports. In all
cases, papers should carefully describe 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
* 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
* Software analysis

The IEEE Computer Society 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 2011 accepts two categories of Main Conference Paper submissions:

(i) Technical Papers, describing innovative research in automating
software development activities or 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.

(ii) Experience Papers, describing a significant experience in
applying automated software engineering technology and
carefully identifying and discussing important lessons learned so that other
researchers and/or practitioners can benefit from the experience. Of
special interest are experience papers that report on industrial
applications of automated software engineering.

Submissions under both categories should not exceed 10 pages in the
IEEE two-column conference format (see note below). Papers will be
administratively rejected and will not be reviewed if they exceed the
10-page limit or use condensed formatting. For guidelines and
formatting files see (under Information for Authors):

Papers submitted to ASE 2011 must not have been previously published
and must not be under review for publication elsewhere. 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.

All papers that conform to submission guidelines will be peer-reviewed
by PC members. Papers may be accepted either as full papers or as
short papers. In this last case the camera-ready should be no longer
than 4 pages. All accepted short papers will be presented in a poster


The ASE 2011 tool demonstrations track provides an opportunity for
researchers and practitioners to provide live presentations of new
automated software engineering research tools. Tools can range from
research prototypes to in-house or pre-commercialized products. Tool
demonstrations are intended to highlight underlying scientific
contributions. Whereas regular research papers provide background
information and detail the scientific contribution of a new software
engineering approach, tool demonstrations show how a scientific
approach has been transferred into a working tool. Authors of regular
research papers are thus encouraged to submit an accompanying tool
demonstration paper.


The ASE 2011 Doctoral Symposium allows PhD students working on
foundations, techniques, tools and applications of Automated Software
Engineering (ASE) an opportunity to present and to discuss their
research with other researchers in the ASE community in a constructive
atmosphere. Students will receive feedback on their research and
guidance on future directions from a broad group of advisors and from
other Doctoral Symposium students. Students will also have the
opportunity to seek advice on various aspects of completing a PhD and
performing research as a young ASE professional. Note that students'
presentations cannot be attended by their advisors.

The symposium is intended for PhD students at all stages of
research. However, they should not have completed their dissertation
research nor written up their dissertation before the conference. If
you are already writing your dissertation, or expect to be
substantially done by the time of the symposium, we encourage you to
submit your work as a full paper to the ASE conference.


The ASE 2011 tutorials track provides an opportunity for researchers
and practitioners to explore new and emerging areas of Software
Engineering.  We invite proposals for half-day/full-day tutorials
addressing theoretical foundations, practical techniques, software
tools, and applications in areas related to the ASE conference themes
and topics. The tutorials are scheduled for November 6 and 7, 2011 at
the beginning of the ASE conference. Tutorials are intended to provide
independent instruction on a relevant theme; therefore, no commercial
or sales-oriented proposals will be accepted.


ASE 2011 invites submissions of workshop proposals. Workshops are
co-located with the conference and should provide an opportunity for
exchanging 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 will be held before the
conference on November 4 - 5 or after the conference on November 11 -
12. A workshop may last one or two days.

Submission details for the main conference and all tracks will be
available on the conference website.
